yes, it shld be alrite..

but u can on any 2 units wil be fine too. if u on the 3rd one, than it wil takes a longer time for the 3rd room to cool. unless the 1st n 2nd room is cool enough, than the 3rd room wil cool faster.

actually if u were to go through the post, there is 1 having many problem wit his 2 inverter system.

yup..the cost of inverter is alot higher, as the components r alot more n exp than non-inverter.
Thks Chunliang... you are expert

Another question, for a 3m x 6m room, do you think a 10k BTU/hr fan unit is sufficient?

There seems to be a few formula out there (eg.. NTU, renotalk) giving different results :p

jus to ask some qns..

my house in amk hav gone through main upgrading programme, in which every flat is added an additional room near kitchen. n hav check through hdb website that my blk is installed 40A in every flat. so installing 2 condenser unit is not a problem.

but now the qns is anyone know where can i install the 2nd condenser(outdoor) unit? becos after installing the daikin system 4, the old system 2 is stil in good working condition, so keeping it. actually intend to sell it away, but no where can sell high price.

so my mum wanted to install it for the additional room.

anyone install their condenser unit in their house? can i able to install the condenser unit outside the additional room? jus want to get some comments about the installing 2nd condenser unit(old one).

thanks..

any comment about the insulation thickness 1/2 compare to 3/4 inch?
some shops people told me is kind of wasting money and too kaisu going for 3/4 inch, manufacturer spec is 3/8, going 1/2 already over spec. why still want go for 3/4 so thick?
the aircon technician even tell me frankly said i'm just letting they making more money from me and ended with a big thick ugly PVC trunking.
is using 3/4 inch too kaisu?

to wat i tink, 3/4 is too kaisu liao.. by default, as wat manufacturer spec, 3/8 is gd enough. if scare abit, 1/2 is more than enough liao..

unless u wan a frezzer-like room?

3/8 insulation is enough for HDB. 1/2 is for commerical and pte apartments concealed piping. HDB don't have concealed piping so 3/8 is enough.
3/4 i think, not many or even no one uses it for installation.

how about fire retardant?

for HDB worth to pay the extra for class 1 to class 0?

the copper piping from G23 to G22 should worth the extra $$ ba?

thank.

Copper piping, G23 is good enough for hdb or condo. Suitable for R22 or R410 gas systems. G22 is for commerical usage. Upgrade to G22 is like paying for something you don't need in the first place.

Is SWG23 copper pipe good? How about Gaincity standard insulation good? Do i need to upgrade my insulation tubes to Armaflex?
