To cowcowtan,

Have u considered other brands like Mit/Panasonic which r ard the same price range?
Have not really considered. As currently using fujitsu and am hoping to retain the existing system for the living dining, hence going back to fujitsu would seem more consistent in the house...

I will keep my options open and go look look see see Mit/Panny.

Many thanks for the reply!

Please be wary of Fujitsu service. They charged transport fees of S$80 for every trip.
Thanks for the head's up. Dealt with them before and know what they are like.

Dear Experts

Another question. One of my compressor has failed whilst the other is still working fine. Would it then make sense to replace the compressor only? I am also told the pass through is faulty. Fujitsu Agent say do not waste time, mine is old model so go for replacement. My current setup is a system 5. If go for replacement, is it best to go for 2 condenser setup?

Such headaches and of all times to break down....

Thanks in advance!

To r1verflow,
Panasonic is quite value for money considering their prices r lower compared to Mit Electric & Daikin.
tks tks! seems really value for money tho but i'm not sure about their quality, any users here can share their experience?

Dear fellow Air-Con experts, I have a matter needing advice.

I have just placed a 10 percent deposit for All Best Air Con at Tampines Mall yest with Sales-Person, Bernard and he was really helpful,knowledgeable towards our air con choice.

After I confirmed and went back home, I googled and found quite a lot of bad reviews on "All Best" from 2008 to 2011.

I will like to ask if anyone has any recent Air-Con installation done with them and have they improved since then?

There are bad reviews, but there are also people who used them and no issues. Since you already paid the deposits, i think no point changing and forfeit the money.

Thanks bro for your kind advice. I agree with you and I have a friend who got 2 sets of system 3 from All Best for her mother's place and as well as her own place at Seng Kang.

She say everything is gd n no complaints.

Maybe it is a case of lottery with them or maybe they have really improved over the years already which I hope is the latter.

Planning to get either the following:

Toshiba System 3: $2999 or Toshiba System 4: $3999
Comes with 1 year all parts coverage and 5 years warranty for compressor.

Top up $300 for System 3 or $350 for System 4: Cover invertor, PCB warranty for 5 years (This I got to check my reciept again as I can't quite remember)

The Toshiba will be in power capacity: 22 for living room, 13 (for master bedroom), 10 for the 2 additional bed rooms. Compressor made in Japan and I think the capacity is 33 BTU.

BTO 4 room flat.

Wonder if this is good enough as Toshiba seems pretty good??

After readin thru the reviews and replies, I am stil tinkin of replacing my old and spoilt Mitsubishi casement aircon with another new casement aircon, either Europac and Trends. Not tinkin of installin system or invertor aircon as it wil nid a lot of piping and my hse is 24 yrs old liao, so might be movin out soon.

Anyone use before? Which is better? Trends or Europac? Is it advisable to get fm NTUC or Giant?

I will like to sincerely ask if anyone has installed their Air-Con from All Best and how is the state of your air-conditioning now?

Any problems with their service line/air-con servicing or installation of the air-con?

Thanks.

Hello Sadboy,

Do you mean CU= MXY-3A28VA and FCU = MSY-GE10VA x 3?

Maybe you could also check the thickness of the copper piping and the brand of wiring used. Also check on what are the warranty covered for both system and workmanship.

Best Regards,

Jason Tham
