Hi
I had a fairly decent time with my air con man, he has been in this line 30 yrs, did air cons for me over the past 10 yrs.

I just installed a pair of Panasonics, pretty quiet, not noticable when sleeping or in my hi fi room.
Got a pair of Panasonic single-split unit CS XC 9DKZ 9110 btu for about 840 installed. with drilling of holes, bracket, everything and GST as well

His shop is around the AMK area

Can PM me his contact? thanks.

If I plan to do up my room (Re-paint & furnish), and install air con.. Do I install after I've painted or before?

Planning to get the LG Artcool series... (Any feedback)?

Actually, I have been using daikin for many years now and it still has not broken down or even given any problems. They may be a bit more expensive but i find them more reliable than the others.
Thats not to say that other brands are unreliable. Just that i have had a good experience with daikin. Even at someones place that i know, the units there have been still going strong for about 10 years now? They just call the guy in to check it once in a long while.

If theres water leaking then that means that the guys who installed it were just plain bad and provided you lousy service.

you could Install the air con first. If you install it after, your paint work will be spoilt. And when they start doing the piping and all your Paint work may be affected. But you can also paint first and then after that touch up the place.

I always feel that Hong tar aircon is more expensive than other...they will never reduce the price even u told them some other shops are selling cheaper, but i still choose to buy it from hong tar cause they are the company where i seldom see any complaints from other internet forumers.Buying aircon not just the brand but the workmanship and the installation are very important!! Initially i intend to get Gain city but i heard someone that they will sell the aircon as 1 time installation only,in the end i choose hong tar...i never give damm to this allbest and best tech as complaint to them are super high.

hong tar tech will be coming to new home later to do the first installation, do take note abt term and condition, some shops can give cheaper price cause they using smaller 3/8 insulation and G24 (thiner) copper pipe and will do in 1 time installation only ,usually it cost $150-$200 to upgrade the material,
