bascially what will happen if i dont do anything abt it ah?

the insulation and power cable are being glued together at the opening when coming into the box-up area... i think is weather proof right?
cannot be glued together la... it is jus coming out from the same opening.

the power cable is weather proof, but not the insulation.

when u switch on yr aircon, large current goes through the power cable, which generate heat.

after some time, this insulation will giv way to the power cable which makes a hole in. n after some time, condensation take place. at tat time, between the power cable n insulation will hav water.

insulation will also corrode after some time also where sun r shine directly.

Recommendation

Finally took the plunge with the ME A48, FCU 10, 13, 18 and made the choice to go with Gain City through Mr David Tay, H/p 90013124 largely because he was prompt, knowledgeable and kept up with the computations that I was considering for my apartment.

Pricing was reasonable and we went with gauge 22 copper pipes, 3/4in armaflex insulation and 16mm drainage pipes. As the engagement was for concealed installation, there is not much point giving the price. I would say that getting the cheapest quotation at the expense of having to consistently chase the salesperson for quotations is not the way to go. How much confidence can one get from such a person/company. Imagine having to chase for an installation date!?

Thier team is doing the installation now and they were punctual with the appointed time and took initiative to look through how best to do the installation as well as show me that they are installing what was promised i.e the copper pipes, the thickness of the insulation, etc. Rather than just getting the sale and leaving it to his team of installers, Mr David Tay came in to check on the progress and advised his installers accordingly. This is particularly important for me as I have had problems with the drainage due to the the gradient of the drainage pipes.

In view of the above, I am happy to recommend his services.

Yup. Got to cause it's concealed. If anything goes wrong it would be very painful. I suppose it helps that Gain City gives a 3 year installation warranty so giving better insulation is to their benefit too.

n btw, i tink someone in here said tat Mitsubishi Electric does not hav fan mode. which is a very disadvantage. becos if dont hav fan mode, than tat coldness contain inside the aircon(wat i mean is after turn off aircon) will create mould, bacteria, jelly-like stuff inside. which will than also create a bad smell.

You mean on the remote control, you can't choose fan, and non-aircon mode?

any recommendations to remove "factory smell" from FCU ?

it has been 6 days since my new FCU installed in my room.... there's still this smell coming out frm the unit....

what airfresheners u guys using in ur room? is it wise to hang those at the bottom or the fin of the blower? quite curious abt it... since blower blows out air.. it could bring the scent out as well
