I'm looking to get 4 blowers for my 3room flat. One for living room, another for dining room and 1 for each bedroom.

I would say 90% of the time, the living room and master bedroom would be heacily used as I'm staying alone. Dining room unit is for when I have guests over.

How many BTUs should i be looking at for this arrangement?

Should i got for 2 compressors as well?

My ID recommened big pipe for installation.

No problem.

Thanks for helping out.

you can see fro the plan that the living and dining is quite separate.

Kitchen is open concept?
If kitchen cum with dining then go for 12k should not wrong.
For living room for 12k is ok
The rest 2 room go for 10k should ok.

Just consider for 10 x 2 + 12 + 12 for system 4
If needs more stronger airflow can consider for 18k also at living room that is another option.

Thanks for the tip bro

Yes, the kitchen is open concept as I hardly cook much.

I read that Mit and Pana ranks as good brands to buy?

Just install my Mit Sys 2 inverter and so far it's good.

I just set to 25 degree, it's so cold already and blower fan set at just 2 bars enough to cool the room within 45 mins.

The blower fan set at 2 bars is so quiet that it's feel the aircon was not on at all.

Pana too common, good also for parts more cheaper cause made In malaysia & China.

But ME more quietest and reliable too, better quality of made.

To DW,

You can install a 18k btu fancoil on bathroom/W.C. 2 wall to cool down both dining & living.

Hi Terumo

As the fancoil is blowing more into the living area than the dining, will the dining area get cold as well?

To AciDJC,
These 2 brands are of similar quality.

To DW, actually the area requires ard 12k btu.
Thats why i suggest a oversized 18k btu to compensate for the location of the blower.
