Anyone has installation done recently by Allbest ? I went to their IMM shop. Saw some bad feedback from years ago but not sure how it is recently...
Second this post. i just found out a new Allbest shop open at east side.

before, i planned to get from GC for their offer of 3 year workmanship, 5 years warranty, bigger company, should be able to last 5 years until my warranty is over.

and my preference is MHI (for their lower power, ION/filter, low standby power consumption)>ME (merely aircon, no ION etc, high standby power consumption).

but after talking to this Allbest person, i unable to decide.

they are offering 5 years workman ship--which i feel quite tempting. but not sure if this company can survive or not after 5 years.

also they claim MHI is made in China and inferior to ME.?? the ION sheet is a cheat. Panasonic or Sharp ION is the true one.
and MHI may not actually be more energy efficient than ME.
and my 26 yo old flat, have to use existing power point, which can only have 19000+ BTU for MHI. ME can run at 24000+...

any one can help on this pls?before i make deposit...they say the offer is only until 29 Jan. after CNY, dont know what will be the price.

Mitsubishi - Heating as well as cooling office and commercial environments, easier to clean. Electricity saving and dead silent.
May I know what problems you have encountered with your
Daikin?

Hi bros,

Need your quick recommendations for aircon models/ brand.

Am intending buy/ install aircon at my parent's place.
(3 rooms: 2 beedrooms + living room).

Preferably 3 ticks (4 ticks also ok).
No need special features..

Budget: Mid range budget as I'm paying for it lols. I do intend to get something could last long but most importantly it's economical (electricity friendly) as they pay their own bills.
They usually need aircon when the weather is hot. Otherwise they would only use fan (i.e. don't on the aircon 24/7).

I did my own recon at Best Denki and Courts but not sure what to pick.
I browsed through most of the replies in this forum and I realised Mitsubishi is the preferred brand/ model? (I will avoid Daikin as this brand has failed us alot of times)

I am clueless about aircon as I don't own one personally.

Thanks so much for your inputs!
segafan

May I know what problems you have encountered with your Daikin?

My 7 year old 4 split a/c might need replacement, depends on assessment. Toshiba error code 02 and 14.

It didn't occur to me deciding on a replacement a/c set can be quite a complex matter.

Current set up and usage:
1. My new generation HDB home, with a/c parapet:
1 hall, 3 bedrooms.
2. Usage:
a. Bedtime: 1 master bedroom. Might be 2 bedrooms starting soon if my elder child starts to sleep in a separate room.
b. Hall: Mostly a couple of hours on evenings on most weekends and some evenings on weekdays.
3. Operating Temp: 26 degrees on existing a/c. Usually on 'Economy' mode.

Here are some questions, in the interest of electricity consumption, system longevity and lowering cost of next replacement:
1. Can I and should I install a system 4 set
OR split it up 2x system 2, and in which room pairing? Thinking about when the next replacement, I need not replace the entire system 4 set.

2. Based on my usage type and temperature, to use inverter or non-inverter?

Thanks a lot!

I have 2 sets of System 3 Mitsubishi Starmex installed 11 yrs ago and to date only one repair done. I am not sure of the quality of the latest batch of ME Starmex but based on my experience I would recommend nothing else other than ME Starmex.

Thanks Terumo. I'm not sure if power loading permits and now that you mentioned, I should get the width measured!

To dribee,
If u have a aircon ledge, most likely power loading is not an issue.
2 metre in width should be enough for 2 outdoor unit.

Mine is a Daikin non-inverter, system 3.

Running for 5-6 yrs no prob but last few days the unit in my room blowing room temp air, so not cooling the room at all

The other 2 units are fine.

Could it be a gas problem?
