Tips on buying air con for your house:

1. Consider your needs (Window/Casement/Sys 1-5)

"Red"]2. Always service your air con regularly.
Always make sure and ensure the technicians clear your drainage pipe (the source of evil for water leaks).

6. If possible, upgrade your insulation.

If you have money to buy air con, spend a bit more to upgrade your insulation for a peace of mind. It really makes a difference a few months/years down the road.

drainage pipe are usually 1/3 inches. it is the standard market size. this type of size will choke easily, y market don use 1/2 or 3/4? because like that less servicing to do(since bigger pipes encourage better water flow), less money for sub con. so insist on bigger size drainage pipe.

upgrade of insulation.. most upgrades are from class 1 to class 0. frankly class 1 has better insulation capabilities. so whts the difference?

class 1 is not fire retard but class 0 is, it got nothing to do with insulation capabilities. when upgrade make sure upgrade brands, not the class. higher fire retard = lower insulation.

brands like armaflex and k-flex are good insulation.
