As above... looking into air conditioning 3 bedrooms and the living room.. my contractor quoted me $3.7k for a 4:1(2 compressors inside) toshiba system with inverter.

is it expensive?

any lobang/recommendations?

is daikin or mitsubishi better?
Toshiba is a food brand, the onlt model which comroessor is rorin Japan, however, blwoer is from Thialanfd'

Pros of Comdenser unit last you donkey years.
Fac-coil, always have a regular issue of the sensor not working. cost about 120 to replace.

Dun mind can give me a breakdown of the job scope aso i can ask me fren whats the correct charges for that? and what kind of combination are you looking at?



Regards\
Andy

3years warranty? T&C serving done redulary by their team and you must buy their service contract if im not wrong. Have you goodled on the complaints of the company? There are some cheao ones,,, But my mindsed is when it comes to installation,if its a small comopany, it is worth spending 2-33$ Cheaper?

For 1 room, there are 3 ways of installing an aircon.


1. Window aircon ( Square little box at the bottom of the room ) - Provided your room has that.

2. Casement aircon ( vertical units sitting on the window )

** To both the above, you cannot install this 2 if your room window is facing the corridor.

3. Single split wall mounted unit. ( Must have a space to put condenser units.[ Aircon Ledge/Bracket] and power point to install. )

If you already have a aircon condenser in place, you will need to check with HDB if you can install another aircon unit.


With regular servicing, an Aircon's lifespan is approx 8-10 years
Any recommendations for window Aircon?

I have been quoted $3,900 for Mitsubishi Starmex Inverter Multi split R410 with Amarflex class 1..1/2 thickness insulation..16mm water pipe...3C70 wiring FCU to CU and 2.5mm wiring CU to power point.

When come to warranty please confirm what type of warranty can they provided. usually 5 yrs only cover compressor not PCB.and room FCU normally cover just 1yr.
come to installation usually after 1 yr they will not cover cable, leaking of drainage pipe and gas piping etc.
even everything covered but when problems surface the contractor will give reason and excuse to avoid the liability

Warranty on fancoil:

Manufarturing defect or product faiks to work within warranty. No including flap. Of they go and say ur aircon how long never service, show then the receipt to prove. If not have = dun have

Compressor warranty: 5 years

Condenser is the whole unit which has motherboard and such built in. Pcb dies, compressor running = no warranty.


Hope this clarifies ur doubt
