To daverichard,

U mean $5200 is for installation works alone right?

This amount is a bit on the high side.
But it depends on the amount of concealed works and length of piping involved.
If works/materials involved is a lot, then price might be reasonable.

Maybe u can get a second quote and compare.

Hi Terumo,
thanks for reply.yes even i feel cost very high as he quoted me 10.4 k with aircons and installation.for installation only 5.2k , when i check the cost of aircons with 2 stores and they work out about 7-7.4k . so naturally the contractor cost is high as he wants to supply the aircons as well.but i rather get the aircons from a store that provides 5 years warranty which his company does not.yes will get another quote.

as the job is totally concealed thus need a very reliable contractor but not sure which contractor is reliable.are the gain city contractors reliable?

also from this thread and from friends i gather mitsubishi elec inverter aircons to be very reliable and good.however the wife does not like the design of the blowers and prefers Panasonic.is Panasonic as reliable as Mitsubishi elec?
thanks in advance for help.

To Dave,

Aircon equipment is around $5k+ to $6k.

If $7.4k can do the whole job, I think e other 2 stores under quoted already.

MIT Electric are slightly better then Panasonic (IMO)

Passionair recommended by Tr***** of this thread is very good and passionate about his job, i know alot about the aircon industry from this him when he came down to my house for survey. he is honest and gave me an all-in prize and tried his best to help me in my requests even recommending alternatives on top of air con for my house and preinstalled furniture layout is very bad for system aircon . even if i installed system aircon it will be ugly with alot of trunking the ceilings over my ceilings and wall.

To tanjhj,

Glad u liked his service.

Usually one year warranty is on everything.
2nd to 5th year is on compressor only, exclude labour.

If u want those everything also included extended warranty, maybe have to get Gain City.
But read the fine print, terms n conditions carefully.
Sometimes, they have clauses like servicing must be done by them, etc.....

Hi Terumo

Thanks for your reply.found my old contractor who did a good job in the past he will charge me 8.4k for aircon and installation
whilst the new contractor was quoting 10.4k which i found rather high.

Hi Tanjhj

Gain city , harvey norman do offer extended warranty.

anyway decided to get it from my contractor as the compressor already comes with 5 year warranty and the blowing unit is standard 1 year warranty.

Hey Guys,

A quick question, i'm planning to get a split system just for 1 room.

I am planning to get from Courts and the price already included installation. (AOYG09LUC+ASYG09LUC from Fujitsu). $1359

I went to coolserve and saw powerpoint installation @ $300? What powerpoint does the aircon above use? I've already a 3 pin plug near the kitchen window where the box will be mounted, is it ok?

(Singapore Weather, no aircon die!)

Hi Terumo,
please help.more i read more confused i get.
It is said after 2015 the gas for non inverter will not be sold anymore.so am surprised why non inverter still being sold?
meantime read that inverter aircons(more so Mitsubishi Elec)
use up a lot of standby power which can cost up to
$ 50 per month per compressor.So logically makes sense to get non inverter more so for those rooms(like living,dining)where aircon is hardly used.you see my confusion.as you are an expert you would be able to give correct advise.so please enlighten
Thanks

Terumo,

I have a very old MHI FCU MHI SKM458ERF (rated 4KW on body panel) in the living room. I can't tell what is the pipe size.

As part of a overall replacement (MHI System 5 to a system 4), I have to replace above FCU to a higher capacity model (to support living and dining).

Thinking of replacing with a 6kw Starmex FCU that requires 15.88mm pipe. The next rung down requires 12.7mm. How to I ensure my current pipe size supports these models?

Much thanks in advance!
