My Piping will be exposed in the white trunking /casing (not inside wall, nor in false ceiling). So it will be a very easy install. Piping will run along / outside the walls.

Hi all,

was quoted 2370 for MXY2E20/MSYGE10VA x 2 c/w stainless steel bracket


G23 copper pipe not exceed 15m per fan coil unit, upgrade to thick Class O thermaflex for indoor gas pipe unit and Class 1 black rubber insuflex for outdoor gas pipe unit, Singapore Keystone cable, 16mm pvc pipe and pvc trunking

worth it ?
Mind sharing from which store?

to ian123,
If in trunking, i think max 1/2 is enough, no need for 3/4.
But price is reasonable thou.

1. Thanks. But I still prefer to go for 3/4" inch insulation. I am paranoid about sweating and condensation.

2. How about wiring from Condenser to Fan Coil? Is 4C40 good enough or 3C70 worth the additional investment? I am running 2 Fan Coils at 12,000 BTU, 1 Fan Coil at 21,000BTU and the last one at 9,000BTU.

3. I can easily buy a 100 meter 3C70 wire from hardware shop for just $125 for Keystone or Taisin.

Hi all

You can check the coolserve website. They breakdown the price for equipment and installation.

Heya guys, would like to get some feedback on EuropAce aircon system.. I saw that certain models have better spec and cheaper than mistubishi.. Consume lesser electricity as well.. Is it reliable?

Thanks

Hi aircon gurus..

I am currently planning to buy a system 3 for my family, my family has a system 4 that was installed like 15 years ago. Anythings that i need to take note when asking the price all these? From some of the things i read is like asking everything to be written in black & white, the price to be the final price in case of the contractor wanting to increase it.

and also for replacement, what do i need to ask the person? will it be more expensive? some advertisement ive saw listed the price with standard installation.. so Im abit puzzled on how is it going to be like..

And i saw some people that replace their aircon mention abt the contractor using the old copper wires? is it a muz to change? my old aircon is trunking type, so should the new aircon use back the trunking?

Sorry for having so many questions? because its my first time buying such an expensive thing, and is there any recommended retailer or shops? my budget is around 2.5 to 3k inclusive of installation.. Thanks!!!

suggest you to avoid starmex, problematic air con. compressor unit component spoils easily. .

ct aircon and stl aircon companies

these two companies are offering quite good prices for aircon systems.

for ct aircon, mhi system 4 (4x9k btu) it's going for $3175. starmex $3295. they also have credit card installment plans for up to 36 months, plus $200 ntuc vouchers. sounds like a very good deal.

too good to be true? any catch? anyone use these companies before? or anyone heard anything about these companies?

please feel free to reply to let us know.

thanks.

To ian123,
4c40 have 1 spare wire coil as fan coil need 3 coil only.
Keystone & Taisin will be a better brand then other brands.
