need some advise. recently renovating my hub flat of 30 years old. Wanted to install new aircon the whole house.

masterbedroom = 4.7m x 3.5m
room 1 = 4.6m x 3.2m
room 2 = 4.6m x 2.7m
living room = 4.6m x 4.2m
dining hall = 3.5m x 3.2m

Was being proposed by renovator the below 3 Starmex system 4 option
- Mxy3a28va + 9000btu x 3 + 18000btu x 1
- Mxy4a28va + 9000btu x 3 + 18000btu x 1
- Mxy4a38va + 9000btu x 3 + 18000btu x 1

Which is a better option, I have been to friends' house whereby the aircon is not able to cool the whole house. This is what I don't like about it. But this is the first time I am installing zircon to my house. So need some advise
1 - Which is of a better option?
2 - Normally how much will that cost including piping and installation?
My bro bto 4rm get sys4 ard 4.4k inclusive installation n extended warranty with GC...Do compare the new energy efficiency stdard with various brands

Hi all,

Would anybody able to advise recommended quotation for system 3 Mitsubishi Starmex (2x12k btu, 1x9kbtu)

Was given estimation of 3500+- by 2 different aircon service company. This is for replacing 8 year old Toshiba inverter system 3. I believe have to reuse old pipe, as they are mostly concealed in walls.

TIA
Hi, care to share why replacing Toshiba with Mitsubishi? How's Toshiba over the past 8 years? I was recommended Toshiba as it's still made in Japan.
TIA.

I don't know about the other set, but for MXY3A28/MSYGE18/13 I was quoted the same price including new piping + new bracket + power point. So yes, it seems a bit expensive. But what does your price include apart from the condenser + fancoil units?
Only supply and install, reuse old piping. Yet to check on the bracket.

Actually I just found out my quote only includes the bracket, no power point - need to add another $150-180 for that.

If you are reusing your old piping then likely you should be reusing the existing bracket from the old compressor as well. So your quote likely only covers installation of the 2 fancoils and compressor. Seems a bit high in that case. The piping alone should be worth around $500 if I'm not wrong.

I would recommend you shop around a bit.

To vodka,
If u use all 4 at the same time,
U might need the bigger capacity outdoor unit like 4a38 (Mit Electric) or 5mks100 (Daikin).

Thanks! Have decided to go with Mitsubishi.

Like the slim design of panasonic but the flap looks ugly n casing more flimsy..

Btw, anybody know why on a system 4,only on 2 aircon. Then the Mbr not cold. Only when all others not on then the mbr aircon will be slightly cold.

Hi, seems like Mitsubishi is more popular in this thread. Any feedback about Toshiba? Which one more reliable? TIA

actually mostly use masterbedroom when weather is hot. The other 2 rooms is for kids and living room probably on when got people or hot. Just worry living room is warm when more people but also rare. .
