Actually top 5. MHI and Mitsu Electric are 2 different brands.
Haha, keep thinking of the more popular brands and forgot I type "top 3" Hehe..

Anyway, just installed my sys 3 MHI 2day by best tech and they just took 2 hrs to install and fix the fcus, compressor and started up for testing. Even thou they're late by an hr [due to unable to secure the release of goods], they are still fast and focus. Have to say it's nicely done up and the aircon cool the room very fast! Due to new HDB flats being smaller and smaller by the day.

hi bros,

Just wanna share my experience and hopefully get some advised from experience guys like u on my sanyo aircon. It it supposed to come with 3 year warranty and 5 year warranty on compressor

It's only 3+ years old and the air con is not cooling properly anymore. Got the sanyo tech to come down and they said that there is a coil in the outdoor unit which is broken (?!)

But its not covered by warranty as it is not the compressor. I thought the compressor refers to the entire outdoor unit, but no.

anyway it's a hefty $690 to fix it for 3 months warranty... what do u guys suggest?

Anyway sanyo air con quality is so disappointing, electrical problem within 1st year, and now 3 yrs + the outdoor unit broke...

Sorry to hear that, if it's too expensive to repair, would suggest to get a new 1 instead of hanging on to it. I almost made my decision to get a sanyo for my new hse also but last min changed my mind to a MHI. Now very satisfied with it. Hope no problems with it and happy many years to come provided with good servicing from SM.

Compressor is the motor inside the outdoor unit and the warrt is exclusive of labour charges,

MHI is a good brand, they are different company from mit electric.
MHI is made in Thailand. if u drive a mitsubishi car, like the aircon. you will like MHI.

fujitsu, panasonic, MHI is all making its own compressor.

toshiba, daikin does not make own compressor brand, they probably buy from panasonic compressor. if u buy toshiba and daikin paying more than panasonic, you probably better get panasonic instead.

was quoted:
MHI inverter sys-3
compressor with 3 9k btu fcu = 2499
upgrade to 1/2in armaflex n g22 = 180
5 yrs extended warranty = 359
5 yrs servicing = 1190 (with the 5yrs warranty, all servicing must be done by
the company, hence was recommended to take up the package)

any comments on the pricing?

I just went to Gain City to ask about air con, had in mind Toshiba and Mitsubishi Electric both 9k BTU but Toshiba cost abit more ex cos better energy savings. The cost to install a Sys1 was $729(unit) + $150(bracket). Is it expensive or okok price, any other place that has cheaper offers?

And it also seems like it has many other cost that haven been told to me. For eg they told me about Insulation Upgrades for a certain price, piping max they give5m only additional length got to pay 3.20, etc etc. anyone know what else i have ask when buying air cons?

Bro, have you check if you have a power point for the ac? if not, you might have to pay few hundreds for the power point.
