err.. you cant tell us if u are using system 3 or 2 meh? what is the brand of aircon? inverter or not? what BTU? etc

I dunno my aircon configuration. I try to google about the "single split" system. So, I guess mine is a Single hosed unit. 4-Room flat with flat area of 90sqm. All bedrooms come with aircon.

dude/sis... I think your aircon is quite an old model... is either never service the air con or it is simply too old?

I suggest you upgrade it to inverter and your electric bill should be less than 200 for 8-9 hr usage every day. (saving 100 every montH)

Yes, it is a very old model.
I have serviced it twice within the last six months. But it is not giving me sufficient cold air in MBR. The other room were sufficently cold enough within a few minutes. I guess the MBR is over-used by the previous owner.

I need about two years to "breakeven" if I buy a $2400 model. Think it is wiser to buy new one. I shall check my elect bill again next mth..

u should no matter ur usage ish high or low...

1) inverter and non-inverter price difference ish very little
2) inverter uses R410A coolant, environmental friendly plus cool down the room more efficiently
3) inverter saves at least half of the electricity bill (dun forget electricity bill raises 20% at least every time... u will save a lot more from the initial savings for not buying inverter)
4) inverter ish quieter than non-inverter for sure
5) inverter gives u constant cooling experience (no stop and start continuously like non-inverter)

hi thanks for your advice. however, the sales manager at gain city introduced me a non-inverter LG air con system 3. only $1.8k including installation fees etc. and it is a 3 star energy saving.

model: H3UC216FA0

where as the inverter unit will cost around $800 more. will it be a good investment?

i think u dun get the picture rite......if u want to rely on the comments or suggestions from salesperson nowadays, seriously u even need to consider which one ish good or bad....

becos the salesperson will only recon u the product that ish on their interest (better commission, less popular brand to push the product etc.....) nowadays salesperson product knowledge are all nuts........

so conclusion do ur own homework, and choose the brand that ish really good by the words of mouth (of course from those who really bought and used the product.....)

I did long enough research before i chose Mitsubishi by researching on different forums, reviews etc.....

seriously, the $800 more ish confirmed a good investment for sure, u can see other ppl who posted here their house electricity bill like $150 vs $300..... and aircon if u maintain well can use at least 5-10 years easily no prob....

do the calculation u will know.... and one important, if ur monthly electricity bill ish very high, i am 100% sure u will utilize ur aircon less often even u really need it during hot weather....

imagine if u on aircon 8 hrs per day, inverter $150 per mth bill while non-inverter $300, i am sure next mth u will only on ur non-inverter aircon 4 hrs or less per nite or use fan in the end and conclusion it defeats the purpose of using the aircon.

like the aircon in my parents room it is inverter, i can see my parents on the aircon at nite til morning when woke up, if the bill ish high, they may not even on the aircon, u know old ppl mind set, they are not willing to spend a lot of money even for comfort....

and my advise to u, Lousy Good brand ish not even worth to buy at all, u will definitely regret, and it won't last for sure.... stick to popular japan brand like mitsubishi or daikin at least............it may be more expensive than other lousier brand but it ish definitely worth the money....

cheap does not mean good..........keep it in mind... of course personal budget ish the constraint also not to be denied, but for me, i would rather spend more on worth for money good than buying 2nd or 3rd or even latter choice............
