just that u get cold easily only la....my aircon also blow directly at me, but i set the fan speed to lowest/quiet one......so still ok....but good thing abt directly blow at me is that it is very cold, if not blow directly, 25 degree then i feel cold, but if blow directly, set 27 degree is very cold already...save electricity also gua......

where is it the source?

of course it is not good to directly get blown under aircon directly one, that's why make sure dun set the fan speed too strong can liao... same as fan la, if directly kena blown strong wind for long also not good one la....

like i said, initially i set the temperature at 25 degree, and i got cold one time, after that i know the temperature i am ok with, and i set it to 26 or 27 degree at nite, no prob already.....

if ur body ish strong, it shouldn't be a prob, if not then u LL lo.......

good thing abt blowing directly, ish that u can really feel the aircon, like my aircon is directly above my study table, while i am using computer, and on aircon, i cannot really feel it though it is not hot already....

Unhappy

Feeling lousy and affected by this company that i bought air-con from..@ IMM BXXT TXXXH recently. supposed to take 6 hr job to install became a two-full day job plus working O/T till 10 pm+ till i've to chase them out of the house. Air-con blew out warm air on the first day and they pumped in gas in the compressor and after 1 wk installation again blew out warm air after another week.... now the 3rd time the new air con is down within 3 wks. So much problem.. and have to take leave and wait for them to fix the problem. What else can i do besides waiting 1 wk after another for the cold air turn to warm air .. get them to come and pump again... dont really understand...
Sigh! anybody has similar experience and can tell me what to do next...

I recently found out that two air con condensers of my house each has standby power of 140VAR, and 25W. This is extremely surprising
for a 3/4 ticks energy labeled product.

What this means is that even when the air con is not turned on, there will be about 0.8 Amperes circulating in the wiring, which
eventually will end up as heat losses. 25W also means that about S$5 per month per condenser will be wasted for nothing per condenser.

any Mitsubishi Starmex inverter user want feedback?

its very normal for aircon to consume a little electricity when on standby.

Looking for Sys3 aircon

Hi,

I'm replacing my dying 13-yr old Daikin Sys4 inverter with a Sys3 for the 3 bedrms (5rm HDB) with the following area in sqm.
MBR 18.9 (203sqf)
RM1 13.5 (145sqf)
RM2 12.4 (133sqf)
Is 9000BTU enough for each of the 3 rooms?
Anyone knows what's the BTU for Daikin FCU CTK25FVEN?

GainCity selling Sharp Inverter Sys3 @ $2399.
MHI Inverter Sys3 $2499.
Panasonic non-inverter Sys3 $1900.
Can't remember if Mitsubishi Electric non-inverter s either $1900 or $2100?

Given my low and mostly MBR usage, I originally planned to go for non-inverter, twin compressor models.

Now tempted to go for Sharp Inverter. Anyone has experience with this Sharp Inverter?

Comments/answers appreciated with thanks!

Daikin Inverter seems to have very low BTU power.. not worth it...

I suggest you take Mitsubishi Heavy Industries or Mitsubishi Electric

For MHI, you can go for this (id = 2077 in coolserve website, i cant post link)
SCM80ZG-S / 2 x SKM28ZG-S / SKM35ZG-S
2 x 8,189Btu/hr + 10,236Btu/hr
$2,938.00 (before GST)


For ME, you can use this (id = 2764 in coolserve web):
MXY-3A28VA / MSY-GE10VA x 2 / MSY-GE13VA
7,540 Btu/hr x 2 + 10,508 Btu/hr
$2,770.00 (before GST)


Daikin low power will make it non-sensical to use Inverter Aircon. Inverter works best when you use long hour and enough power to cool your room

Correct. I mistakenly assumed its non-inverter when I don't see the "Inverter" label on the FCU

I came across this BTU table in Harvey Norman.
Area(sqf): BTUs per hr
100-150 : 8250
150-250 : 13750
250-300 : 16500
300-350 : 19250
Heavily-shaded room, less 10%.
Sunny room, add 10%.
Kitchen, add 4000BTU.
If >2 persons regularly occupy the room, add 600BTU for each extra person.

Based on my own experience, I think this is a bit overspec. Comments anyone?

9k btu should be enough for the 3 rooms. If u prefer to be colder, mbr use 12k btu.
