To styledude,

U are intending to replace your existing Mcquay to a new sys 2/3?

As per your current aircon age, its likely to be a non invertor model.

confused about conceal piping

Just bought a resale condo with 14 years old aircon and concealed piping. Been to few contractors some says better to change the piping, some says no need. Since the airocons are non inverter I assume piping must be different one compare to the one used these days. The cost of changing the concealed piping is a a lot as well. Currently I got system 3 and system 2 York Brand. To change to ME system 3 and system 2 Ive got a quote of 3100 and 2400 13k X2 and 18X 1 with ME 28VA compressor. I've been asked around 1.5k for concealed piping. Though there's not a lot of work to be done as most of the concealing will be under the false ceiling. I am not sure whether to change the piping which involves lot of hassle and money or stick to old piping and change the machine. I m not too sure abt ME and wanted to go for Daikin. Guys guide me if you have had similar experience.

to styledude,

If sys 1, you can a single split sys 1 of similar btu capacity will do.

to Panzerf,
Get a non inverter sys 3. Cheaper then inverter system and more reliable.

Maybe you can try Midea, York or EuropAce? I'm guessing Midea is the cheapest brand since it's China-made.

But we get what we pay for, so do not expect them to perform as well or last as long as those heavyweight reputable brands like Daikin, Mitsubishi Electric or Panasonic.

hi,

my parent went down to gain city to buy aircon they wanted to buy Mitsubishi. Somehow they kana convinced by the sales person to buy sharp Multi-Split (Inverter) AU-X3M24MV. they say got what Plasmacluster Ion, that is good for our family and house.

after one day, my parent was told by one of their friend who is aircon contractor, sharp model with Plasmacluster Ion is phasing out. best to change to mitsubishi.

just want to ask whether is a good choice to change to mitsubishi. i see from this thread, the starmax seem to have a lot of good review. we will using a system 2

thanks

Hi bros

I want to set my aircon temperature to fix at 24 degree. However,there is no such option on my remote control. Ie. anyone who on the aircon, will not be able to adjust the temperature at all.

My aircon is a Starmex. Any possible way to go about doing it?

Talking Good experience with Gain City

Bought a sys2 ME Starmex from Gain City IMM and the whole experience from purchase to installation was a smooth and pleasant one. The salesman was not pushy and explained patiently to us the various models available and pricing. The installation guys were very professional, punctual, neat and obliging. They even painted our walls when we asked though they didn't have to. We were initially afraid of the mess of installation but the GC guys cleaned up every time they finished up a portion of the job. The air con feels great, no regrets in my purchase!
