Just make sure there is no additional cost.

Last time, a friend told me that he bought the aircon very cheap at small electronic shop, but during the installation, the installation guy decided the location for the FCU (very near to the compressor) and when my friend asked the FCU to be installed in the centre (and facing to the bed), the guys ask for $100 for every 1 metre. At the end of the day, he needs to pay few hundreds dollar more.
$100 for every metre!? isn't that a bit too much?

The service man shouldn't charge you extra but wouldn't surprise that they do as they are a out-sourced party. My sister was in a similar situation like you but her Daikin aircon installer didn't charge her extra.

Yup... Think I'll get the Mitsubishi 3A28 in the end... 2700. Suppose that's a very reasonable quote..

I would choose option 1... very quiet and easy to clean.
Daikin is the most expensive but it is the best! I have just changed my Panasonic to daikin. No regrets.

Mitsubishi is aggressive for its advertising but the brand is so-so for aircon. Panansonic is good for household products. Daikin is a specialist for aircon. I think Daikin is the brand to buy for aircon.

It seems like it is awlays a choice between daikin, mitsubishi and panansonic. And daikin though expensive seems to have many fans.

Settle everything with the shop that you purchased before you paid them.

Courts must have some policy that daikin couldn't agree. I cam across a website that said Daikin is the number one selling aircon brand in Singapore.
