i always set at 25-26 ~~~ never go any lower other than these 2 temperatures

i wonder how it feels like sleeping in 16-18 degrees celsius
It ish quite difficult for the aircon to hit such low degree one even can hit it will take damn long time..... I think u try temperature like 22 or so it will take at least 1 hr to hit........ Unless ur aircon ish overpower by large btu................then maybe it will be easy or take shorter time to hit

Air-con piping & trunking

Hi,

I am new to this forum.

Just need some advice on using existing a/c piping & trunking. May I know what is the price difference to change a single split unit using all new piping & trunking versus reusing the old installation?

C***Se*** quoted a price diff of $50 for reusing old installation. (Mit MU-D13VC non-invrter: Normal quote for new installation is $970 & if customer no need new trunking/piping less $50 therefore quoted $920 before GST)

I was wondering is the material cost just $50 and how about workmanship, ie laying the piping/trunking. It probably take them at least 3-4 hours more to do new installation versus just replacing the FCU & Condenser.

Thanks,
Ps

hi everyone, after comparison i have come down to two final choices. (system 3)

Sanyo and LG
both non-inverter units.
both BTU/h 9000
both 3 ticks energy saving

the gain city salesman says sanyo from japan while LG from korea

however, sanyo costs $2059, LG costs $1869

what do u think guys? the price are quoted from gain city btw.

My quote from GC $50 off for re-using old installation. So total S$150 for 3 rms.

Yah i also think S$50 each rm is not a lot considering the time & effort to run the whole system. They should rebate more. But maybe is because they need to dismantle the old set

hi i'm currently using this model... just installed less than 2 weeks only for my new flat. I didn't opt to buy from GC cos my a/c repair contractor can give me a better price. Only 2.1k (including new trunking n pipe works). Plus he will come up to ur place to check the works required n give advice for free. If u have existing a/c bracket, can save another $125 to $150.

As for noise n performance, i can only compare to toshiba (didn't try mitsubishi be4)... for both panasonic n toshiba - Quiet means the a/c wind not strong, not cool enuff for me even at 22 degree. So if u dun use the 'Quiet' mode, the air-con wind will be stronger n much cooler. Both brands r comparable for the noise level but they r tolerable...

for those who dont need the 5yrs extended warranty offer by big department store
can try neighborhood store for lower price like Everjoint at amk and compare
google for their number, they are quite famous shop for low price electrical appliances.

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?

=====================================

Hey, I am using this aircon, and I can tell you that the usage is not good. Whether you turn on 1 or 3 aircon, for noninverter aircon, it will use up full 20,000 BTU or 2.5kWh. You turn this on every night for 8 hours, usage is around 20kWh every night or 600 kwH. Are you prepared to pay $150 just for aircon usage? Go for inverter
