If Sharp, why duh u consider Panasonic @ similar price?
Thank for your reply I read and found out that quite a lot of Panasonic user complaining so I skip that brand out. So Sharp not good?

Hi Cooldudey,

They came to my place and did a quote....that included installation...for the ME

Anyway, I really do not know, and am still searching for answers why the cost difference is so huge.

If GC uses good insulation/piping and provide very good, professional service, then I will do with them.

My present spoilt aircon was a result of small companies who love to advise me to do chemical cleaning once a year.....till they spoil the machine, and my $ go woosh

Is GC really that good? Use quality materials?

I've yet to know.

Hypercad, who went to your place to quote?
So far I think all bxxt has the lowest price and they say theydo not advertise hence lower costs which may be true.

Gc kept wanting ppl to upgrade this and that..turnpff

Hi Cooldudey,....they quoted and it was about $100 apart...

Both GC and N***Cool came.

AxxBXXX didn't come but said they would charge $60 for a trip down but if we make the aircon from them, it could go towards re-imbursing the costs if we make from them ......for me, it was a bit of a turn-off...

Hypercad, pardon me, u staying in private? Else I am puzzled by why they will go down to quote u. Sys 3 Starmex is 2989 at gc.. Not cheap. All bxxt is 2899 n 100 voucher
Their pana is super gd deal at 26xx.

Anyway expo gc sale maybe they got discount,
Actually I rather get courts if all same px cos reputable firms will have reputation to protect

Soooo ... the weather have been really unbearable for the past week. I need to stop avoiding the costs of getting a new air-con!

Any air-con contractors to recommend?

Do contractors have services like to hack down the in-built wardrobes as well? My piping for my almost 2 decade old air-conditioning system has some parts of the pipes running behind the in-build wardrobes... and I would have to hack down all my wardrobes in 3 of my rooms to change the whole system. Air-con have been down for the past few years. Honestly, I don't know how I've survived this far. But I'm sick and tired of feeling sticky 5 minutes after I shower.

I'm looking for a 4 unit air-con system if possible. 1 for each bedroom (4-room flat) and 1 for the living room. Energy/cost saving. Don't have to be mega cold, but cold enough will do.. Reliable in the sense little to no breakdowns. I'd prefer this as it works better with my wallet in the long run. I prefer slightly higher starting cost and less maintenance cost.

Do recommend please!

Fujitsu Aircon

Hi All,

I want to buy a Sys 2 airconditioner unit for my hse. Went to Courts and the salesman recommended me Fujitsu ASAGO9LJ and quoted me $2449 for the units. With the additional 4 year extended warranty, brackets and installation charges the overall price came up to $2819.00.

Is this a good deal? Your friendly advice appreciated.

Regards

Terumo, I settled for a toshiba inverter sys 3 instead of Starmex because its made in Japan. Price wise same. Is this a good choice?

Installing my aircon today... the sales guy from gc said they will do the vacuuming of system before pumping refrigerant. But the technician said no need cos all pipes are brand new. Is that true??
