Piping leaks is forcing me to retire my 22yr old Sanyo non-inverter.

Will any bros recommend Fujitsu?

They appear to be the best in class for being the least energy consuming (I'm comparing to Panasonic/ Mitsu)
Looking at Sys3 Inverter (29,000 BTU)

Any comments /experiences with Fujitsu?

Thanks!

It's a refrigerant(which contains only fluorine) more environmental friendly and does not contribute to ozone depletion..

I think Gaincity has displayed the Mitsubishi in their show rooms, tell sales guys to try them, if they hooked up..
R410a is a HFC refrigerant which do not cause ozone depletion.
It is use nowadays to replace the older HCFC R22 which contain chlorine and causing ozone depletion will be slowly phase out in about 7-8 years time. Using R410a with POE oil is moisture sensitive and those installing new units please see that your installer vacuum your new units before
releasing the refrigerant as an advise.

I stay in a 4rm and currently looking for a replacement of my old National sys 3. Looking for a sys4 a while and Mitsubishi and Panasonic are in minds.

I called Gaincity to do a site survey and the guy recommended Mitsubishi ovr Panasonic due to Mitsubishi has bigger BTU on outdoor unit(compressor) and more powerful fancoil. The only concern now is my house can handle max BTU or KW. Still waiting HDB to reply.

My idea choice is BTU 38(compressor) + fancoil 24 + 9 + 9 + 9
Please use HDB website to check your electrical loading.

Hi everyone,

Yesterday at IMM Best Tech, one salesman Sunny quoted me $2950 for the Toshiba System 3 Inverter Model:
RAS - 3M20SACV, is the price reasonable?

My current Toshiba Inverter set been using for 10 years since 2003, it's time to change too.

Any good reviews about this IMM Best Tech outlet ?

Thank you all very much.

Toshiba is quote over priced (IMO)
I suggest ME or Daikin.

Hi guys,

I am thinking of replacing my mcquay with daikin.

Gotten a quote from pxxsi0nair:
R22 (use back existing pipes)
3mkd75 w.1x35d+2x25d=s$2500
3mkd75 w.2x35d=s$2900

R410
3mks71 w.1x35d+2x35d=s$3100
3mks71 w.2x35d=s$3400

Option:
Pressure test s$100/indoor unit
New pipe install s$500/indoor unit


Is this a fair quote?

Hi guru:

I am staying in condo. And current air cons system is about ten years old already.
All pipes are concealed inside false walls and ceilings.

So other than pipe installation cost, the rest of daikin is quoted at fair price?

I was told by other dealer selling both daikin and me that me latest r410 system could use back the existing r22pipes, however only me can do and daikin can't.

Have u ever heard of such thing?
