why install aircon when you have to install and then switch on the fan as well? It just doesn't make sense lah

Ai yah, definitely there will be some models that are a bit faulty. Maybe those who have bad comments on Daikin happened to be the unlucky ones. Mine is a Daikin and my other friends also say Daikin good leh.
becos daikin is specialised in aircon ma..

My aircon is installed on the wall besides the bed, blowing into a space in the room. You can feel that the aircon is cold, so is my bed We did it this way because my wife is afraid of the cold. I am currently using Daikin.
But honestly, Panasonic is not that bad a brand either.
P brand is known to be not so efficient in cooling comparing to different same BTU aircon........

Panasonic off coil temp (temp of air coming out from the blower) is actually quite superior compared to other brands. (My own observations)

Daikin i nvr use before..... it should be a good brand, but in sg, the no of ppl who bought it rather fewer comparing to other brand... maybe due to its price also...

But i like the built of the indoor unit.... matt surface one... looks quite classy.......

other brand including mitsubishi all normal/glossy plastic surface only....

If for non-invertor, Daikin Ma56 is the only sys 4 in the market. Many people staying in 4 room flats are using this model. 3 bedrooms and 1 living room.

in long run, non-inverter is not a ideal choice at all.....

inverter is still the king..........

The choice between invertor or not depends on each household aircon usage.
If ur usage is low say < 4hrs daily, no point getting invertor as it wont save you much $ as u seldom use it.
Invertor is more sutiable for people with heavy usage say > 8 hrs daily.

Get an aircon system which serves ur needs well, not just cooling down the room fast...

Seriously with weather in sg, there is no way u need aircon less than 4 hrs per day only....... A lot of ppl install aircon, but due to electricity bill, they end up saving electricity by not utilizing the aircon, it defeats the purpose of installing aircon in the first place........

Inverter saves almost half the bill, which reduces the above contraint which allows u to enjoy the aircon more freely...Why not?
