a month ago, I read an ad from gain city stating their difference with competitors. And they write until their competitors are crooks So is gain city the place to get aircon?

Also, I seldom on Air-Con. maybe 3-4 times per month for night only. So should I get inverter or non-inverter? Also, should I get Mit since I do not on air-con frequently

Hello Lipo99,

Every installers have their good or bad points.
Gain City would be one of the places to go to for price comparison as they carry a wide range of brands/models

Most important is to be comfortable with the pricing and also the materials used and also warranty. Do not rush into making decision as it would be always good to compare before committing.

The trend for aircondition is moving towards Inverters hence it would be more optimal if you consider an inverter system. Mitsubishi Electric is one of those that can be considered. The spare parts for inverters are more expensive as compared to non inverters. For non inverter do consider Daikin.

You might also want to plan into the future as some might rent out their houses/rooms, have babies etc which would change the usage trends of their aircon.

Good Luck on finding the system that is most suitable for your needs.

Best Regards,

Jason Tham

Thanks. So I will take inverter. Your point is very valid. So I still confused where to get the aircon. Because even if I find a cheaper shop than Gain city, I will not know whether Gain City claim that their competitors use lousy wiring are true

Hello Lipo99

Wiring wise, you can consider to use Keystone wires.
This brand is one of the more reputable/reliable around.
If you are worried about the materials used, be around during installation. You will be able to see the brands of the insulation(Armaflex etc), wires(Keystone) imprinted on the material itself.
Have your installers list out the brands of materials used on their quotation to you.

As for where to source for good installers, look around the forum.
I am pretty sure there will be many that have good recommendations.
You might also want to goto the major electrical stores for price/material comparison.

Hi all,

Need some advice regarding my 10+ yr old system 3 Toshiba aircon. The fan coil model is RAS-10NKX. The pcb module had spoiled 4 yrs back n was replaced. Now the FC failed recently and cannot be turned on.

Is there a new FC model that is compatible with the current system or should I replace the whole system?

TIA.

You can choose to replace FCU only if seldom use and if CU still working good or either replace whole system. Up to you

The price are about the same between Gain City, Courts & you can try Best Denki.
Are you looking for the price with installation included? Then you should check for warranty / terms and conditions & etc.
