so how much can i expect to spend if lets say i buy a sys3 inverter with Gaincity (mitsubishi or panasonic). Total with hidden costs, upgrade and extra warranty? My house has never had aircon and would probably need a site survey first and not sure 1 or 2 days of installation /drilling for the trunking.
I hope i i dont burst my 3k Budget
most likely it will hit 3k and above with all the costs included

My place just installed Mitsubishi Heavy System 4 Inverter + Bracket + Remove Old units & Pipes + Change new Pipes 1 month ago.

Total damage = $3.8k. The company is Best Tech @ TPY shop.

They took 8 hours to finish all the job from 11am till 7pm. So far the air-con has no issue , very quiet and cool fast. Very satisfied.

For more information, for those who are interested in Mitsubishi Heavy System 3 Inverter, TPY Best Tech (Row of shops near Court and Fork & Spoon Foodcourt) is charging $2650 ( w installation ), excluding bracket which costs $150.

I am not related to them. They just installed my air-con recently and I find it so far so good.

best tech so far got quite a number of unfavourable reviews. Might go only as last resort.

Hi guys..need yr advice. I called up Coolserve to do normal wash for my single split Daikin but they said I need to do chemical wash and quoted 400+ for the blower and compressor.
My single split unit is about 1 and half year already. Did normal wash 3 times within this period. Is it really necessary to do chemical washing? Also got lobang for aircon servicing be it normal washing or chemical which is more reasonable pricing. Thanks.

Smile AirCon

hello everyone!

I am looking to install aircon for the very first time, in a ~20 year old HDB. Probably looking for a system 3 (3 rooms), usage will be minimal, at night when it is warm.

May i know if anyone has any recommendations? I read some posts and it seems like mitsubishi seems to be quite popular.

Also, i chanced upon this promotion leaflet from courts: can anyone advise me if the mitubishi system 3 inverter is reasonable?

<-- bottom right corner, only mitsubishi one


many thanks in advance!


edit:

also, I went to the HDB website and realised that my flat ' has not been provided with higher electrical loading. You will need to apply for an HDB permit to install new 15 Amps power points for air-conditioners or other higher capacity equipment/appliances (e.g. high powered IT equipment).'

does this mean I necessarily have to do this before installing aircon?

think i quoted this link b4...dunno if u seen it...
but interesting to check it out...

Compare Air Conditioners - Comparison of air conditioner satisfaction

buying aircon isnt just buy a product...you are buying a package....check out their aircon reviews.

dont rush ...take time to decide and pick and know more abt aircons....

Hi ..just for your info. Giant does not have their own service team and installer....they subcontract out all their jobs..check with Giant ..do they have consumer service hotline for their aircon products..just in case when things fail ..how they resolve their consumer complaints
