To bro mobster,

If ur piping is in good condition , (no gas top up/water condensation issues) then u can use back the pipes.
Any feedback from your regular serviceman?

Hi Guys,

I'm looking to get sys 3 inverter, heard Daikin is a good brand...
can give me some recommendations..?

I don't mind spending a bit more to get a good one.
Don't want the hassle of having to keep repairing a cheap but lousy one.

Thanks!

Thanks for your reponse.

My current system was installed and service by H* T*. The service man mentioned nothing specific. Basically system is old, the sensor that send the cold air to the MBR has gone haywire, some valve at the compressor has oliy slick = leaking.

Doesn't sound like an exisiting piping issue but I am concern if I switch to the new gas, whether there will be leakage in thte future due to the thinner copper that I currently have.

Options I can think of:

1. Daikin with R22 and keep exisitng piping - cheapest option ($3,298.00)
2. Mit Elec with R410 and keep exisiting piping - same pricing and I can opt for a GE24 fan unit for my living room with less than $100 top up ($3,378.00)
3. Mit Elec with R410 and change new piping - need to get quote. How much usually is the price diff?

I am sending you a PM to check if you have any comments of this vendor.

to ninja_turner,

U may want to take a look @ the Daikin R410a series then.
Or the R22 which is slightly cheaper by the R410 series.

Went to Natural Cool. Given a quote as follows:-

Mitsubishi MXY-3A28VA / MSY-GE10VAx3 =$3099 [$2899 after Less S$200/- discount] inclusive of upgraded materials;
Remove old system & Trade-in $50
Total: $2849/-.

Is this a good deal. Saw Gain City selling for $2989 + $180 = $3169/- [no trade in of old air-con.

I guess daikin is better cause they only sell aircon and nothing else. But make sure u hoot the onewith latest gas. Cause the older type will be phased out.

Thanks terumo,

actually I read somewhere that the R22 will still be quite readily available and only totally phase out in 2019...so for now it is still relatively safe to buy R22 (since still have 7-years to go).....do u know if this is true..?

R22 gas will be available in the next few years.
U can buy a r22 model now n switch to r410 on ur next aircon purchase (next 5-7 years later)

MHI vs Mitshibishi Electric

hi terumo,

why do you say that Mitsubishi electric is better than mitshibishi heavy industries?

Thanks,

I feel that ME is better based on feedback from my friends.

ME after sales seems to be better too. (IMO)
