To funnyclown,

1. Usually 15amp power point will be enough for aircon usage.
Cost ard $200-$300, depending on location & difficulty of job.

2. They are 2 different brands. I will say quality wise, Mit Electric will be better.
didn't know they are 2 different brands? Err..so Starmex comes under Mit electric or??

Hello Darkortal,

How often to service your units is always dependent on your usage/environmental factors.

A rough guide would be that for daily users, it is recommended to service your units every 3-4 months. Especially for those with children/pets/smokers whereby the units will tend to get dirtier due to powder/fur/cigarette smoke

For the average users every 6 months and once a year for those that seldom use their units.

What you can do for self upkeep will be to wash your aircon filters regularly and also wipe the exterior of your units 1-2 times a week. Some brands allow easy removal of vanes etc that makes the upkeeping job easier.

What you can also do would be to ask your appointed contractor after your servicing how often would you need to service your units. They should be able assess the current condition of your units and advise accordingly for your consideration.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Jason Tham

To Doraemon70,

Is it for 3 x 9k btu blower units?
Nowadays they use stainless steel brackets, no longer use iron bracket.

If I may comment, quote is still reasonable,
I personally, I don't bother to spend more $$$ and even willing to give kopi money for the job done nicely, as appreciation.
But if you anyhow choose vendor based on cheapest one, you will risk the job not done properly, end up wasting your time and $$$ and more headache.
My suggestion is to check the quality of the vendor, rather than tempted with cheap proposal or sweet talk. And do not hesitate to ask question or to check when they carry out the job, to make sure you got what you already paid.
Its time to open it here on the table, which vendor is good, and which vendor is not good, so bad experience won't happen to other.
Let the vendor think, if their name and image are not good, because the way they carried the job not good, it is their option.
Remember, people talk based on their experience.

Condenser 5MKS100LSG
Total Daikin Price $4,850

Upgrade to 3/4' Armaflex Insulation
Upgrade copper pipe to 22 gauge
Drainage 16mm
Wiring FCU 4C40 to Fan Coil Unit, 3C70 Wiring from Condenser to power point
Total Price $400 for upgrade
