Dun waste your time on portable aircon... Too noisy and power consumption is very high... And the best part is that is does not cool your room enough

to Flabfeng,
The prices stated are quite cheap compared to market rate.
But don't take Mide* if possible. (IMO)

For 1 room, there are 3 ways of installing an aircon.


1. Window aircon ( Square little box at the bottom of the room ) - Provided your room has that.

2. Casement aircon ( vertical units sitting on the window )

** To both the above, you cannot install this 2 if your room window is facing the corridor.

3. Single split wall mounted unit. ( Must have a space to put condenser units.[ Aircon Ledge/Bracket] and power point to install. )

If you already have a aircon condenser in place, you will need to check with HDB if you can install another aircon unit.


With regular servicing, an Aircon's lifespan is approx 8-10 years

Is it normal for a compressor to leak water when in operation ?

Already have a pipe link to my toilet for the water to flow out .. but I noticed that there's water coming out from the compressor directly. Not much .. but a constant flow.

As above... looking into air conditioning 3 bedrooms and the living room.. my contractor quoted me $3.7k for a 4:1(2 compressors inside) toshiba system with inverter.

is it expensive?

any lobang/recommendations?

is daikin or mitsubishi better?
Yours is HDB? Concealed piping or wall concealment, after aircon up then but L Box?
Tohisba he hage u what configuration and whats RE the MATERIALS provided??

System 4, Unless you go for the xpensive 4A38 compressor, it is weak... U need something more powerful to supprt ti supoport for e.eh: You switch on hall and 1 room, Weak, u switch on all units, no feeling. 3 rooms STill Acceptable. Stronggest fir aircon right now belongs to Fujitcu
