Any feedback on MIDEA Inverter System 2 9000 BTU unit? Heard it was quite popular in China. I was recommended a good promotion price from Courts at $1687, $512 less. Tks!
Midea is a good brand in china ...so fast already in sg few year not much complaint . but is only scare after few year can t find the air con s/part . if Courts got give u 5 years all s/part warranty can be consider


Enjoy your new air con

Hi sifus please advice.


Priority:

1. MOST silent (lowest fan speed oepration). No blowing sound, no humming.. msy-ge10va?
2. No windchill (sharp? gentle cool)
3. nice air to breathe.. (sharp plasmacluster... is this a marketing gimmick or does it really do something?)

no need fast cooling or very cold temperatures...

Midea system 4 @ 2499(12,9,9,9) ,if incld the extended warranty and upgrades to G22 cables and 4 core wiring and thicker armaflex insulator will cost me $3262.965 which is quite cheap for a system 4 as i wont be a hardcore user.Maybe 4-6 hrs
Plus heard so far midea not so much issues right??

If i get a panasonic(12,9,9,9) @3399 with the bundle& upgrades will be $4344.90
&
a Mitsubishi starmex will be at $3429 & bundle & upgrades will be $4376.40

Hello Gaurov_86,

If budget permits, I would prefer Mitsubishi Electric Starmex.
However this is up to your personal discretion as cost savings between the brands is almost 1.1K.

Do check on the extended warranty to find out what does it encompass and what are the actual material specs for the material used in the installation.
4 core wiring can come in many brands with Keystone being the more reputable brand in the market.

At the same time you might want to check if they include installation warranty which is an extra coverage for you as bad installation would most probably contribute to the most problems in the long run.

If you are not in a hurry to have the system fixed, you might want to get a few more quotation for comparison before deciding.

My personal opinion is that when we look at installing an aircon system, we should be looking at long term unless your purpose is for rental or short term stay. Not only are the materials used important, workmanship, but also the durability. A new set of aircon is expected to last at least 7 years with proper maintenance.

Say within this 7 years, if there are several breakdowns/repairs, you would also have to take into account these cost which is why warranty is important in certain aspects however most of the time these are either amortized into the cost of system purchased or sold as a separate package.

Another portion would be the hassle if there are constant repairs/replacement especially if you have concealed fixtures etc, the hacking and rework would be quite cumbersome.

There is no right or wrong on selecting a specific brand as we should always work within our budget. It would always be wise to consider carefully before selecting what is best for you and your pocket.

Good Luck.


Best Regards,

Jason Tham

hi,

2 days ago I've retired my 9yrs old Sharp plasma and changed to Toshiba system 3.
However, I find that the temperature is quite warm as compared to my old Sharp non-inverter.
1st night I set at 25 degree with full fan speed and felt that is not cold. Last night set it at 24 degree but with fan speed at 4. woke up middle of night and felt stuffy then set it to 23 and full fan speed.

When fan speed is at full, whole night keep hearing wind blowing but was told that high fan speed than your room will cold.

The remote full of functions and I dunno which is the ideal selection to sleep throughout. Can some one enlighten me.
