Anyone knows if there is "second hand" value to working old aircon unit?

Mitsubishi Sys4 + Sys 1

Backside itchy want to change (but feel wasteful to throw the working one away)

maybe u can sell to your friends. Direct selling to aircon companies have little value.

Reasonable?

I was quoted 2400nett for ME sys 2 (uses same installation materials as gaincity), powerpoint $120. - Is this ok?

or

ME system 2 (only) @ $1300 + installation ($950) + powerpoint $220 - this supposedly says he uses better materials, by which he means G22 copper and armaflex, the rest same as supplier 1. Is the thicker copper and armaflex really necessary?

All in all, its about 2500$ for a complete installation, its not considered really cheap isnt it?

Hi Terumo, will be looking at a/c for 4 rooms in Punggol. My new house will arrive somewhere end of this year. My plan was to get System 4. Here are my questions.

1) Which brand is better ? I seen alot and talk to people at expo. They recommend Mitsubishi Electric ones.

2) For typical Punggol 4 room flat (90 Sqm) with System 4 a/c, is it good to have additional small compressor or just get a big compressor ?

3) What would be the ideal cost of System 4 ? Went to many Expo and Gain City. Saw the price around S$3.8k ~ S$4.1k..

Aircon noob here.

Single unit... hmm, do ur outdoor unit require bracket? If need think $800-$900 can get with bracket exclude power point.
Whatever you do, Mitsubishi Electric brand is bad . Bought unit 4 weeks ago, and spoilt 3 times already- every week once. Also got no contact email on website. Have to fill in form and when i hit 'send' button, never send. Email on service form got bounce back. Walau- bad product, worse service. Don't buy.

Don't buy Mitsubishi Electric. I'm sitting down seating. New aircon broke down 3 times in 4 weeks. After sales service useless... No direct email address on website.

charging for quotation

hi,

i called one of the air con installation companies(Atmosphere aircon) for a quote. they said they are unable to give me and have to come down on site to see before giving me the quote. and its chargeable at $60. however, the $60 will be waived if i do the installation with them. is this a common practice for such charging of quote?

Hmm, which is good ? Hard choice. I know there are 2 Mitsubishi brands. One is Mitsubishi Electric and the other one is Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

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.
Any idea if 3c70 wiring is better for fancoil to condenser? Or is this an overkill?

Aircon installer mentioned the fourth wire in 4c40 is a control wire, any idea what does control wire mean?

Try getting another company to quote to see if this company is trying to do a quick chop over consumer.

To xiaoheng,

Single system not so exp. I tink ~$1k should be able to get for HDB.
Pana or Mit is good.

To ian123,
The 4c40. Actually is 1 for live, 1 for netural, 1 for control. The 4th is a spare.
Cos the copper piping between the blower & the outdoor unit acts as an earthing element.
