save more and buy only daikin or mit elec. others at your own risk.
Is daikin / mit elec really much better than the other brands??

performance or cost saving wise or both?

Huskyjude,

I prefer Armaflex over Thermaflex. Up it's your notice.

As in g23 vs g22. G22 is thicker,
I am not sure if made in Thailand is better a not.
But if budget permits, use G22 will be better for concealed pipes.

I have no choice already - need the aircon installation by this week.
This aircon contractor knows my main contractor so it is easier to coordinate.

Thanks terumo I learnt a lot from you & your website. Many thanks!!

I just bought Panasonic System 3 Inverter (CS-S9NKZW) for $2599+$150 (bracket). Installation in June. Can anyone advise is Panasonic aircons better or Mitsubishi Electric Starmex? I can still change my orders by topping up $200 for MIT Starmex. Dilemma! Originally I went into the shop with my mind set on Starmex. But then when salesman told me Panasonic got econavi & nanoe-g functions etc, I changed my min. Hope I didn't make the wrong buy sia. Hehe...
Where did you order from?

Replacing my 11 year old Hitachi System 3

I am looking to upgrade to a System 4, to include the living room with an additional blower and FCU.

I am contemplating between Mitsubishi Electric and Daikin, although price only differ by a few hundreds.

I prefer a All-in-One unit with ioniser and air filter capability, currently I have a Delonghi Air Filter cum Ioniser which is serving me well. Thought of saving space and effort, by leveraging on the air con blower unit with built-in function.

I have done a few calls to the Gxxx Cxxx, Cxxx Sxxxx... both are quite competitive, next is base on the confidence and instinct.

So, if anyone can give some suggestions and things to look out for the bundle package and materials. Please advice.

My current place's aged Daikin system is giving way. So after reading this thread, decided to pop by a local supplier for a quote.

My current place is a late 90s 4 room flat, so there's a situation that the master bedroom is like almost 1.5 times the size of either one of the bedrooms.

As a result, I think the configuration of 9k BTU for each of the 2 bedrooms and a 12k BTU will be most suitable.

Apart from that, we will need a relatively quiet compressor as the design of the flat requires it to be placed pretty near to one of the bedroom's window.

So the supplier narrowed down for me 2 models to choose from: 1 is Mitsubishi's Electric System 3 Inverter and the other is Fujitsu System 3 Inverter as these are the only 2 that have 28K BTU and above compressor. Opting out of Daikin for the moment.

Here are the details:

Fujitsu A0AG30LATH (30K BTU compressor)
2 x 9 BTU fan coil
1 x 12 BTU fan coil

Price: $3,399 nett (inclusive of installation and removal of old system)

Mitsubishi MXY3A2YVA (28k BTU compressor)
2 x 10 BTU Fan coil
1 X 13 BTU Fan coil

Price: $3,039 nett (inclusive of installation and removal of old system)

Bracket - $150 nett

Installation is done with 3/8 class 1 Armaflex, G23 copper pipes and 16mm drain pipe

Optional upgrade to 1/2 class 1 Armaflex, G22 copper pipes at $180 nett.

One question is, based on what is recommended for Mitsubishi, if all 3 are on at the same time, won't it be overloading the compressor by minimum 5k BTU?

Please advise which will be a better option to go for?

Should I get a 24K BTU compressor system instead in order to widen my choices?

To Freebiyd,

If you on all 3, the 12k will perform like a 9k instead.
If you worried abt the btu, you can get the 4a38 (36k btu) outdoor. That unit is physically bigger then the 3a28, but its a bit overkill.

Thanks for the response. I supposed you are referring to the Misubishi Starmex right? Because that's the only one which is weird from the quote I had gotten.

Instead of 9kBTU fancoil unit, the salesperson indicate it as 10k BTU. Is that normal?

The price seems a little high to me though. I'm wondering if there are cheaper alternatives like Panasonic or Hitachi. I'm avoiding LG, Samsung, Sanyo and other brands at the moment.

Mit Electric fcu model is GE10, so maybe salesman thought is 10k btu. It should be around 9k btu.

Why duh u consider Panasonic? Might have some cost saving even if specs is the same.

I asked about Panasonic lei. He mentioned Panasonic don't have more than 24 BTU to support my requirement.

I feel quite strange. I'll go ask again about Panasonic.

Thanks for the advice.
