Bro,

I'm quoted $2600 with installation of system 2 starmex BTU 9000 each.
-Copper pipe insulation class '0'
-1/2" Thick(i think armaflex)
-16 mm drainage piping
-installation and removal of old unit
-installation of new compressor mount

Wu hua bo? Another company with similar set up also about the same price.

Also "Your block has not been provided with higher electrical loading. You will need to apply for an HDB permit to install new 15 Amps power points for air-conditioners or other higher capacity equipment/appliances (e.g. high powered IT equipment)."

Means need new power point also?
Sorry for long winded question.


To lak3rol,

Says 2 should be are $2k-$2.4k depending on brand & model plus new piping.
Removal of ur old aircon should be inclusive.

I got mine installed, Mitsubishi Electric (StarMex) Inverter Multi-Split System 2. As my pipes was about 20 yrs old I opted for new installation. Removing and disposal of old system 2 for $2190.

I was looking to replace my 16 years old aircon, system 3. Only master room unit working. Called up one company and they quoted me $3000 for starmax system 3, including bracket. Only thing is most of the piping is behind my built- in cabinets, so the guy said can still use the old piping, only need to apply a chemical crystalline inside the old pipes and they will warranty the pipes for 8 years. The extra cost is $180 per room so extra $540. Total cost will be $3540 for 3 room inverter system.
My question is did anybody ever hear of this crystalline thing. I am quite interested as it comes with an 8 years warranty.

To cobragold,

Its better to replace the piping or try to install via a new routing then doing the crystalline thing which i duh tink its proven yet.

Recently my aircon compressor start to make a soft "tat tat tat" sound ... not sure its a vibrating sound or grinding sound.
It usually happens after turning on for a while (after reaching the desired temperature).
If I set to a lower temp so that it has to work harder, the sound will go away. Sometimes it will also go away if I turn off, then turn on again.

Any idea why? Is it sign of failing?
