You could ask Tim for a quotation, as mentioned above.
The price he quoted is competitive.

Price not so competitive but friendlier to the wallet with monthly installment
They are also professional enough to discuss about the installation and giving recommendation

I was somewhat luckier. Bought Samsung System 4 in October, had it installed in last December. We usually used one 1 of 4 rooms at a time. In May, we discovered one of the room (which we used before) was no longer cool.

The service guy came and finally diagnose a mainboard problem. They have no parts on hand. After bugging them for 1~2 months, they finally offered to exchange my outdoor comopressor FOC.

Now OK. Was lucky the fault developed in the first year. Had the same expensive compressor trick happen in my last Daikin aircon - so I routinely decline the 5-year warranty as a gimmick. Daikin charged me $580 to change a compressor under their 5-year warranty also - some gobbledygook about free compressor but $500 labor!

In this regard, Samsung is no worse than the next guy. This time around, I figured I should convert my 5-year warranty to $300~400 cash discount and then pay for it upfront when the time comes... Did this at Gain City.

The only disadvantage to my Samsung is that the compressor is a bit taller than normal. Could pose a problem if you have extra low window sill - OK in my case. No problem with noise, even though the compressor is mounted immediately outside the MBR window.


I have very bad experience with Samsung aircon. The moment it was installed, the aircon is weak and compressor very noisy. My house was vacant for 3 months after aircon installation. Immediately 13 months after installation the aircon delay burnt (means I only use for 10 months actually). Samsung agent repair is very expensive so I got others to repair. 6 months after repair the capacitor and compressor spoil. Compressor got 5 years warranty so it's free but the checking fee and workmanship for changing compressor is $350 before GST! Including capacitor repair total is around $500! The Samsung agent seemed very honest and told me not worth it to get it repaired. What a lemon. Stay away from Samsung aircon. Now i'm going to buy Mit electric inverter.

Really wonder how will the Lemon Law change the a/c industry in SG, for the better of course. Got this off the MTI website...

My 7 year old Mitsubshi Electric system 4 has recently konk out.
I am looking for a replacement and cosnidering using the exisitng piping to save cost.
Is this advisable or feasibile at all?
I believe my current system is using R22 where the new models are using R410 or do I have to switch to Daikin?

Thank you in advance

ME TOO! Samsung is very jia lat. the aircon is cheap but the official servicing company is a outsource local company. my samsung aircon not even cold.. set to 16 also not cold. then the repair man came and smoke me deep deep. tell me inverter not as cold. tell me all the rubbish. then i du lan i go straight compaint up. they change the unit but damaged all my insulation and tried to smoked me say everyone also fix aircon this way. Samsung and their service team is really mediocre.

i really cannot tahan i finally got a mitsubishi inverter. Mitsubishi super good. aircon remote 27 degree as cold as samsung 16 degree
