im looking for a sys 4 for 3 rms and 1 hall...1st time buying aircon...

need advice on what to look out for...

looking at the layout of the current aircon, the piping of 1 of the rms went thru the storeroom

i went 2 mega stores and non recommended Mitsubishi...why?

1. best, recommended panasonic
2. courts, recommended fujitsu and free 4 yrs warranty on installation

which is better?
some recommendations are biased,especially coming out from those you are buying from. because those they recommend give them the highest margin.

i think i'm safe to say now the recommended inverted brands in sg are daikin and mitsubishi electric starmex. i'm using panasonic for about 4yrs+,only servicing once or twice...so i think panasonic is also ok.

workmanship is impt as well,they must use thicker piping for 401a refrigerant else any inverter brand u buy also spoil easily.

For your info, Panasonic & Mitsubishi will be the best.
But if compare between Fujitsu and Panasonic, prefer Panasonic.

their profit margin on Mitsubishi is pretty low which is why they do not recommend Mitsubishi. personally using mitsubishi starmex inverter, awesome aircon. using for 6 months plus no servicing was needed. You also need to get good installers who do a really good job with good materials. This will ensure aircon does not leak

thanks for the info...prefers panasonic due to:
- econavi function...wonders if it really helps to save power consumption and
- the air vending flips...single flip...cos used dakin b4 and the 2 flips got spoilt...

"thicker piping for 401a refrigerant" does it means 0.5" pipe? thk i saw something at best that it costs more for thicker pipes...

For your information, Best Denki & Courts almost have the same installer.
First, they will assign to contractor if there any installation and then contractor will pass it to sub-contractor as well.. or maybe there is a few contractor to pass yet. That's the reason installation charges increased. But not so sure for their reliability.

Non-inverter is a basic model which operates at a fixed speed, simply controlling temperature by switching on/off alternately. These are significantly cheaper to buy but consume up to 40% more electricity because of this fluctuation.
Inverter has a variable speed compressor which constantly regulates to the desired temperature - a more economic method of operation and a graded for energy efficiency. Although costing more to buy but inverters offer a wise long term investment.
So to decide which is best for you, consider on how frequently and at what level the system will be used.
