say you on at 11pm, set timer for 4 hour. when air con, door closed, windoe closed. at 3 am, aircon auto off. what happen from 3am to you wake up? in a room with door and window shut still shut?
it will became damn stuffy one after aircon off one......

then it will forced u to wake up....which in this way it actually affected ur sleeping....that's why it is pointless that u buy aircon end up u need to save electricity by not on it at all or on it for very little short period only........

just curious..why are you getting a Panasonic and not any other brands?
Panasonic is a good brand I feel. Used to own a lot of National products which is a sub brand of Panasonic and they are known to be of good quality and are very durable.

As for choosing a non-invertor is cos we dun have the habit of switching on the aircon everyday. Old folks cannot take the coldness and I'm not home half of the month.

While there will be definitely savings in terms of electricity in the long term if I picked the invertor, I'm not sure if my family can recoup the start-up costs b4 the aircon up lorry. An invertor aircon's price is still quite high compared to non-invertor models.

In terms of the aircon, it's very quiet which is impt to me as I'm a light sleeper. I set the temperature at 25 degrees when I sleep at nite and its sufficiently cold to give me a comfortable night of rest. Just nice with my comforter over me

I'm still using non-inverter.

Previously was using Fujitsu inverter a/c.. cost me around $3.4k.. spoilt at 3rd year.

Fujitsu technician came over, repair cost over $900.. saying outdoor unit spoil, need to replace board, compressor & other stupid components. all these components only warranty for 3mths.. after 3mths up lorry, u bear the cost again.

Gave up on Fujitsu, crap piece of aircon.. trusted my friend(working in winfinity) too much coz he guarantee me, inverter will save more money.. save my foot..

After using normally for 3mths.. bills still the same.. never drop, infact increase of electricity..

Now using Daikin non-inverter.. super happy wif it.

I have been hearing good things about Daikin. They are a specialist in aircon and they only manufacture aircon.

As above... looking into air conditioning 3 bedrooms and the living room.. my contractor quoted me $3.7k for a 4:1(2 compressors inside) toshiba system with inverter.

is it expensive?

any lobang/recommendations?

is daikin or mitsubishi better?
I got a System-2 4 months ago and I went for Panasonic. I did some price comparisons and went to many places. Courts offered very good deal but i chose Etronin, a HDB electrical shop at Bedok that offered me good price. So far, I felt that it could be better. Sometimes, when I turned it on at 16 degree, it was not cold after a while. i wondered whether I have bought the wrong brand.

try to trun it on at 24 degree and after a while, say 30 minutes when the room is cooler, you can turn it down to your desired temperature. It should be fine. If you are unhappy with Panasonic, why don't you try Daikin?

hey here you just said it, daikin is good. But too bad that you have already bought Panasonic.

By the way, price for daikin may be slightly on the high side but it seems that it is all worth it. Most of the condominiums in Singapore used Daikin.

I am a panasonic supporter but when it comes to aircon, many recommend Daikin.

How much more? S$100 to S$200? I don't think i will mind if it is a really good product.
