Hi,

Looking to install the following aircon

MXY-4A28VA-01 28,000BTU OUTDOOR UNIT (QTY-1)
MSY-GE-10VA 9000BTU (QTY-4)
Use half-inch installation *4 with 1 stainless steel bracket

Was quoted $3850 for everything. Is the price reasonable?

The sizes of my rm are as follows:-
3.6m*4.9m
3m*4.9m
5.3m*3m
3.25m*4.5m

Will 9000btu be sufficient to cool room of those sizes?

The BTU of the compressor is 28000BTU, so does that mean that i cannot on all the 4 aircons all at the same time?

Please advise

Thank You in advance!

Price ok. If you on 4 together, the btu will be 7k btu each. Still ok. Normal hdb room around 6k btu should be enough.

looking for system 3 inverter. went to GC,, more less decided on:

-Mit Starmax
-Mit Heavy industries
-Hitachi

price are pretty close to each others...

went thru the specs, also NEA web,,, very likely be Starmax aka Jacx Nxx

cause the indoor unit is of 8500 x 3 Btu/hr.. higher rating faster cooling
i guess..

will chk out cxxlserve also, but seem only main office in Joo seng, might
need make a trip there..

any advise appreciated....

I am using starmex inverter, so far no complain.

The best part, the FCU is easy to clean.

Hi, Intending to get my very first air-conditional system soon.

Daikin seems having a greater response after browsing some earlier posts through here. Think will place this in my priority list.

Btw, anymore feedback about Sanyo & Fujitsu?? Like to here more comments about these 2 first before I made my choice.

Lastly, any recommendation for coy with good installation service? At first thought of GC, but after reading all the comments here, decided to kick GC out of my list due to poor installation service.

Some people recommend Coolserve but too bad they do not accept Credit Card payment. So any other good choices beside them?? How bout Courts and Best Denki?? Any comments??

Daikin Aircons are indeed good... but just that the prices are very high... in fact the most expensive in market... I have been using it for 9 years and it nv give me any problem... I jus got a new Daikin Inverter and its performance is so far amazing...

I used Fujitsu once, and had to repair it twice within 5 years. I posted it on this thread...

I had air-con installations thrice (incl. one by GC). IMO the GC technician really knew what he was doing.

Hi Everybody,
I intend to replace my old aircon system 4 and have some questions, hope all who know can advice me.Thanks.

1)Normally the price quote include dismantling of old pipe and installing of newpipe?Or we must pay extra to dismantle old piping.

2) Is the dismantling of old aircon/piping and installation of new aircon/piping carried out on the same day?

3)Any good installer or company to recommend?

Aircon just broke down. Compressor motor replacment will cost $400-$600.

2 units blowing out hot air. (not gas technician just checked)(also been leaking for about 3-4years)

1 unit in mbr still functioning as per normal.

Since its already 10 years+ old was thinking of replacing all of them.

Was previously using National(Panasonic) System 3.

After reading through it seems the most favourable brands are Daikin/Mitsubishi/Panasonic

1. Mitsubishi MXY-3A28VA / MSY-GE10VA x 3

2. Panasonic CU-3S27MKZ / CS-S9KKZW X 3

Leaning more towards the Mitsubishi not because of Jack Neo but because the National that i currently have kept giving me problems.

info that i've compiled.

2 kinds of refrigerant for inverters R22(older/top up cost $10?/not-eco friendly) and R410A(newer/top up cost $35?/eco friendly)

the latter is used in the Mitsubishi Electric MXY-3A28VA / MSY-GE10VA x 3 system.

9000btu is enough for hdb room size.

16mm drainage pipe would be good but 13mm is sufficient.

G23 Copper is good for pipings concealed in truckings.

Class 0 or Class 1 insulation doesn't matter. Brands like Aramflex/Thermaflex is common and good to go. (don't save on insulation)

>6 hrs daily, go for inverter. <6hrs daily, go for non-inverter

Savings of about $100+/- a month.(if used daily >6 hrs)

Lastly choose a reputable company.

Seems like GainC**y isn't that favourable here.

CoolS***e seems to be good but no installment plan?

AllB**t getting mix reviews.

BestT**h? not too sure about them.

Thinking of going with CoolS***e though they have higher prices. But would appreciate some advice before i make a move. Thanks!

Inverter type will give more stable temperature as compared with non-inverter.

Go for inverter type if your budget allows.
