Hi,
Got 2 option I will definitely to choose for option 1,
MIT electric will be have more benefit for long term service,
It is also more quite at only 19db and more higher capacity for your room quick to cooling down just only set to 25C it is enough your cooling needed.
MIT have easy clean and instantly clean without any tools.

Daikin normal have some small small part can be easily get spoil and can't turn on have to call for service the LED light will be showing.

To compared indoor unit fan coil for me I will prefer to Mitsubishi electric have more quality.
Because I have open all cover to see the part and product.
Not like pastic feel and little bit warm white color.

Hope you don't go for wrong.

Have a nice day!

Please see this thread on the standby power consumed by Mitsubishi inverter aircons:

hm... the lower than total summation for option 2 is due to the "special price" huh?

what's the Cu pipe gauge used? and the insulation thickness?

R410A uses a higher pressure and it's colder than the R22.

So Cu gauge 23 min, or better still gauge 22 (lower number gauge means thicker Cu walled pipes).

Insulation thickness preferably thicker coz colder pipes + humid climate = condensation (aka sweating). 3/4" would be nice but then trunking would olso be huge and ugly.

It looks like option (1) is better, except for high standby power consumption (thanks for the link about this issue)

According to the website, they will use:
Liquid Pipe Size : 6.35 (23SWG)
Gas Pipe Size : 15.88 (23SWG)
Insulation : Class 1
Drainage Pipe : 16mm

Here is the full spec of the package:
http://www.coolserve.com.sg/htmdocs/...ls.asp?id=2763

And this one is the standard installation material:
http://www.coolserve.com.sg/htmdocs/...o_Meterial.asp

It looks okay to me... or do I need something else?

Hi

Can I ask how big your room size ?

Because for daikin cooling capacity for turn on 3 units at only 5664 btu/h.
It's only allow for small type of room.

If bigger pls find out the daikin model 3MKS71ESG.
Will more cooling turn on 3 units can support up to 7404 btu/h.

For Mit electric cooling capacity can up to 8189 btu/h for each room to turn on 3 units at same time.
have more capacity can save more energy.

hm... i used have a Fujitsu 36k BTU compressor for 4 FCUs each 9k BTUs.

It was (let me assure u) a total over-kill!

I initially was worried that the compressor cannot support all 4 FCUs, so i got the biggest one i could find and ended up with this 36k BTU compressor.

However, i soon realized that the initial cooling is the one that draws max power. And when the coils are cold after a few minutes, the power to the compressor drops. I confirm this with an AC clamp-on multimeter on the power cable to the compressor.

So if you add up the BTUs of the FCUs, you realized it is usually higher than what the compressor's BTU. But i dun think you should be overtly concern abt it.

yes, i agree that the one with the higher BTU compressor prob can cool down all the FCUs faster. BUT! it also comes at a price of a larger compressor which prob consumes more power to do so.

conclusion? everything is give & take lah...

1 x Master room about 14sqm
2 x Common rooms about 10sqm

I think it should be enough (based on the BTU calculator below).

Looks like quite big for your master bedroom size = 3.5x4m
I will suggest you quote for 13k BTU.
And 2 common room can use 10k BTU.
So total = 2x10+13. it is more efficient for keep faster cool down.
If not you will try to set at 2 speed fan and temperature to 23C.
At the your fan coil will be more noisy and usage more energy.
It's for my experience.

Thank you for the suggestion and sharing your experience, Bro kimsim.


Currently the all FCUs are facing the bed and with the new installation, we intend to put it above the door (coz I dont want the air blowing direct to bed)

Is one day enough to dismantle the existing aircon + new installation?

I think it is due to your old gas Cooper pipe is using R22 for non-inverter.

Don't use back the existing gas pipe.
To be solve the future problem.
Also drain before joint to new hose must clean out the jelly inside.

Hi All, need help on replacing my 10year old sharp aircon.

I will need a system 3. Saw an ad from gaincity, 2250 with installation for the Sharp AEX3M18JR.

Any comments?

Their with installation price means they will dismantle my existing and replace with new ones?

Thanks.

from what i read abt R410A and R22 refrigerant, if it is R410A piping you can use R22, but not the other way. Some contractors claimed that if they can "clean" the pipes using R22 so that they can use the new R410A.

well... prob... but the new R410A olso uses higher pressure and needs thicker Cu pipes. Need to consider this as well.
I got another question.

Assume that I use back the old piping for the new R410A air con and later the old pipe spoil.

Can I then ask the contractor to install new piping which is not hidden (ie it is installed on the walls) for the aircon?

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Thanks.

Yes sure the contactor can reuse back the existing pipe.
But make sure the contractor have to cleaning and purging for while to cleaning old stick oily base.
To be safe your new runing R410A gas.
If not do that for a short term can hear the compressor runing noisy and un smoothly at all.
It is mix with both gas become chemical reaction.

If u change the quipment first, and rerun the pipes later, the cost is much higher. if changing pipes is not a big hassle (no concealed piping), change the pipes with the equipment.
