To The_King,

Best is paint wall first then install equipment.
Thats why need 2 trips, 1st trip to run piping.

To jaxel80, u confirm went to c @ Gxxn Cxxy.
Only they sell Hitachi in the market if i am not wrong.
Toshiba not as popular as compared to Daikin/ME/Panasonic. (IMO)

To jaxel80,

I will suggest Panasonic in similar price range.
Extended warranty, u have to read the terms & conditions carefully.

aircon piping

Hi Terumo, AC experts,

My 12 yr old aircon konked out and need replacement. I engaged an AC man for site survey and due to my concealed piping I decided to reuse the piping. One of my common rooms is using 1/2 inch for gas line and now we are replacing it with a Starmex 9000 BTU. I read the specs for starmex that gas line size should be 3/8 inch. The AC man said no problem. Is this correct? Or this will be a nightmare in the future in case he manage to connect it?

Thanks in advance.

To Zangetsu,
Duh worry, ur budget of $1k should be enough for single system inverter 9k btu.

To efs_user,
1/2 is bigger then 3/8 so no issue.
