Extended warranty

Hi all,

Is it really necessary to buy 5 years extended warranty for new sets of aircon? I feel that all this breakdown of aircons really depends on your luck. I have heard a few who have not problem with aircons for 5 years. But i also have heard of 1 or 2 with problems within 5 years.

So, I wander if really its necessary to buy additional 5 years warranty from dealers. Maybe i shall ask you guys how many of you experience problems(be it hardware or nstallation.servicing) within 5 years?

All 3 units cant turn on? Even manually?
Faulty wiring is one possible fault.
Outdoor pcb also possible, for all 3 indoor pcb to be faulty together is quite rare. I do agree $350 to replace all 3 wires is a bit expensive if yours is HDB and the wiring are inside the trunking.
sorry to butt in... i olso using Toshiba. luckily havn't had this problem.

but i agree with Terumo, $350 for the electrical wiring!?

After 2 days of using, my power usage is 50% less than my old national non invertor ac

need advise.

is it better to get a system 4 (2 for living and 2 for bedroom) or to get 2 x system 2. If this combination, i am thinking of the system 2 for bedroom will be an inverter unit while the one for living will be a non-inverter since we don't usually use it only if there are guests ard. however, this combinations seems hard to get for a non-inverter with higher BTU.

so if opt for a Mit Electric system 4, the BTU is more flexible for us to mix and match. How would you guys recommend?

And also whats the diff btw a 38k or 28k etc etc.

Just read the meter, every 8 hrs use abt 7-8 kwh for this new aircon. For old one it uses abt 16-18 kwh for every 8 hrs

If space permits, 2 x sys 2 will be better. My views.
