You are right, the utility room is added during MUP

I don't plan to put condensor inside utility room. I plan to either put it outside Master BR or at the right side of master BR, which is a staircase

go through toilets huh.... i would rather it go through the wall in the kitchen?
the placement of condenser shld be jus outside the windows, below the windows wall.

up to u..u hav to tell the installer. but the shorter the copper pipe, the better.

is the utility room added during MUP(main upgrading programme)?

if it is so, than the condenser cannot be placed at utility room.

it will be placed outside master bedroom wit bracket.

yes, u can install fcu at utility room. jus tat will drill many holes to go through 2 toilets.
the placement of condenser shld be jus outside the windows, below the windows wall.

up to u..u hav to tell the installer. but the shorter the copper pipe, the better.

good suggestion... i think i know what you are talking about... right side of toilet wall to utility room...

Hi experts,

I'm researching an aircon inverter for my future use. For room of 12 sqm size (window facing south) in HDB, what would be the sufficient BTU required? There are option of 6800 BTU, 7500 BTU, 7800 BTU, and 8800 BTU.

Seems like 8800 BTU is too big for 12sqm room size....
Any expert suggestion?

make sure ur aircon BTU is not under power for ur room size, else it will take much longer to reach the set temperature, or even worst nvr reach....in that case, it defeats the purpose of inverter aircon, becos if ur room temperature cannot reach the set temperature, inverter cannot save u on the electricity...

Seems a bit overkill using 8800BTU .. but for inverter air con, i guess it is okay
Yep.. the room is same as yours.... i guess for inverter air con, it is okay to use higher BTU so that it reach part load state faster...

currently, my LG non aircon inverter use 20kWh every night for 2 Fan-Coil... last time it uses only 10-12 during rainy day.. and 20 is possible during hot day...
but from what i observer, my compressor didn't have "turn-on and turn-off" anymore.. it run whole night, cold or hot....

for a bedroom size..8800 is jus nice.

but if the room is like storeroom size, than 8800 is abit overkill.

I reckon this is the "official" airconditioning thread. Would like to ask if anyone thought aircon-ing the living room is useless? Will it cost a lot in your bill more if you aircon the living room + 1 bedroom for say, 20 days in a month?

so mine inverter with 8550BTU is just nice hor?

the salesman said my room requires 11000-12000BTU

i told him doesnt matter, even if it takes that extra 5mins to fully cool down my room

i said i got budget means i got budget.... canot afford means canot afford



now i've been using it every night w/o fail for like 9hrs and weekends on it even during day time....

i wonder how much the bill would be....

if mbr is bigger than other bedroom, would suggest ~12000btu. else ~9000btu is jus nice.
