Is it true that for air-con, brands like Daikin and Carrier are better 'cos they specialise in air-con only unlike say Mitsubishi, LG, etc which sell different things?

Also, if one is staying in a small flat, say a 45 square metre 2 room HDB. Would a single unit air con be enough? To me I guess its enough but my friend was saying, even though 2 room flat is small, but if have only 1 air con, will be very taxing on the aircon to try and cool the whole flat.

He suggested having split unit with 2 air con - 1 in bedroom the other in living room. So when you are in living room watching TV you on that aircon then when going to bed then turn off and then turn on the aircon in bedroom.

Which is the better method?

To derrickgoh,

2 fancoil units will be a better setup. (IMO)

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....
always tot that Mit Electric > Panasonic?

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.
Do they do air con cleaning and service?

guys for very low usage (use about 2 hours a day), what air con will your recommend that will last the longest and needs least maintenance?

my choices are between daikin
3MKD75DVM - FTKD35DVM / FTKD25DVM x 2

and

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
SCM60 - SRK35ZJ / SRK25ZJ x 2

Hi does anyone know how to calculate BTU, I'm quite confused by all the different methods mentioned on the Internet. I'm looking at an area of 7.9m x 5.65m. Thanks in advance!

Hi all

I am planning to get the LG New ArtCool Platinum (Mirror) (New ArtCool Platinum (Mirror))
from GainCity.

Any comment? Is the warranty by GainCity value for money?

Thank you
