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?

which is a better deal?

Hi Terumo,

Check with you, i wan to replace my existing system 4 aircon. One aircon contractor told me that my existing flat is old flat. Electric supply not upgraded. Maximum we can get is 25000 btu compressor, so if all room on, its about 6000 btu per room.

Is it true? How to check whether my flat can support how many btu compressor?

To Oryzaa,

$2.4k for sys 2 is a bit overpriced.
Unless u r using upgraded materials.


To lazy999,
Google for hdb electrical loading, can check by postal code.

To axileon,

Best is view 1st to avoid contractor imposing additional cost on you due to site conditions later on.

Some noob questions abt Btu

Just installed a MIT sys 3
MXY3A28vaR7 outdoor unit
MSYGE10VAR2 x 3 fancoil
For example if each fancoil is running 9000btu. How do we know physically for example is there any prints on the fancoil says 9000btu?

Thanks.

Hello Doraemon70,

Some labels on certain brands will not show 9000BTU on it.
Usually the model number is tagged to represent the BTU just like for the case of ME (Mitsubishi Electric) MSY-GE10VA whereby the 10 represents the 9000BTU series.

Some labels on the fan coil will show cooling capacity of 2.5kW which converted to BTU you use 2.5kW to multiply by 3412.142 which converts to 8530.35BTU which rounds up to Approx 9000BTU

Whereas in the case of Daikin system, they use kW in the representation of BTU in their model number for example FTKS25DVM translates to 2.5kW which also converts to Approx 9000BTU.

Best Regards,

Jason Tham

I need some advice from aircon expert here.

I want to replace my current multi-split 2 with multi-split 3 inverter unit.

two rooms are side by side while the new 3rd room is about 25ft away.

I spoke to an aircon installer company and he does not recommend to use multi-split 3 unit.

Instead he recommend me to get a multi-split2 and another stand alone unit for the 3rd room. My hdb flat is more than 20yrs old.

Can any expert please give me your view?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Aircon Experts

Greetings to all

Need your help.

I am going to install Aircon first time. My block is about 18 years old, 4 Room 110 SQ Meter.

Below the floor plan and House details




We usually use Master Room and Bedroom 3 regularly. Bedroom 2 is seldom used for sleeping. Just use for Reading , PC etc. Have Ceiling fan in all the 3 bedroom. North Facing, All bed room have large window. Total family member 2 adults and 1 Grown up teen.

I have marked Bed position, Fixed furniture(Wardrobe) and Pillar running across. New wiring needs to be done as there is no High Current plug.


My Questions are

1) What brand and Model number/ Capacity you recommend.
2) Is System 2 sufficient or System 3 is better now.
3) Any Suggestion where to buy?
4)I saw courts and Great World city(GWC) have 5 years warranty and offers. Any past experience? GWC has 3 years comprehensive warranty. Whats your advise?
5) I have marked all Bed position, Furniture etc. Any suggestion where I should install Aircon coil?
6) Is the additional 3 or 5 years warranty is really important(Additional cost). Any hidden condition I should be aware of.
7. High current plug wiring, What you recommend? Use my own contractor and install or Use Aircon installer service?



Thank you in advance and appreciate your help.
