Hi guys, how do I know if my home can support a system 4 or system 5?

I checked the HDB website it says max current allowed is 8.5A
HDB InfoWEB: Guidelines for Air-Conditioners Installation Works : Living in HDB flats : Home Renovation

If I am getting this unit,
Gain City | MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC | MXY4A28VA~3XMSYGE10VA~1XMSYGE26VA | Inverter Split-Unit | System 4 Inverter

it says running at 3.3A, it should be fine right?

Thanks!

Most brands offer system 4 which is applicable for usage in new & old HDBs. Only the 4A38 cannot be used for old HDB whereby the power allocated is insufficient...

Hi,

Need some comments from the aircon guru here.
I intend to replace my aircon units

Was quoted the following

Daikin Inverter
Model : RKD50BVM / FTKD50FVM
Cap : abt 17K BTU
Single unit for the hall
Cost : $1,850

For my 3 bedrooms
Model : 3MKD75DVM / FTKD25DVM*2 , FTKD35DVM (master bedroom)
Cost : $3400

So did the shop treat me as a Robert or the price is reasonable?
of cos workmanship will also play apart

Thx

Yours is reuse or new piping? Condo new piping required hacking and such... which is cheap for the price. most prob is reusing the existing pipes.
And your daikin Aircon is an old model using R22 refrigerant. New model is 3MKS75

i will be getting 2 sets system 1 dalkin air con or 1 sets system 1 dalkin air con and 1 sets of system 1 Mitsubishi Electric.

i will be upgrading the pipe and insulator to the max as i planing to reuse it next time.

i would like to know is it worth to extended warranty at $200 for each system 1?

thank you

Pointless bro. Upgrade to highest quality for HDB or condo would be 3/4inch insulation & 22 gauge piping. Can last u min 15 years with proper maintenance.
Aircon fancoil warranty is only 1 year by agent, u extend to another 2 years, total 1 + 2, how often an aircon spoil within 3 years? At most if spoil, labour and parts cost you 150+- each....

Hi,

Any recommendation for sys 3, New Bto flats.

Local brand, pana, mitsu, daikin, Samsung?

Best place to buy and costs?

Tks.
The very first thing you must ask yourself is whether you are using the aircon on a heavy usage. IF yes you should go for inverter which is more expensive but can save you money in the long run.

This article on inverter aircon vs non inverter aircon might help you make a better decision:

Anyway from my understanding, Non inverter not available for sales by NEA anymore... Kinda due to issues of energy consumption

to noelnoel,
Most brands catalogue will state the max running amp.
But usually the system will operate at a amp lower then the max.
