But does it mean fujitsu is not a gd aircon?
No, i not mean that it is not good. Actually all brand are good but depends how you like the outlook and most important is easy to maintain and do servicing. Fujitsu aircon's water tray cannot dimantle do wash, so it may need to take more time and use brush to clean so some aircon team may charge more expensive abit for servicing than other brand because it really need to take more time to clean.

To ekardo,

If using premium materials, quite reasonable.

quoted $3150 for invertor mitsubishi system 3 from my regular aircon installer/service...
is it reasonable?
Where u quote it , something expansive, new install or replace new.

I got mine from AllBest MIT starmex system 3 + replace old unit and new bracket below 3k.

Oh ic.. cos i just bought a fujitsu aircon + 5 years warranty for aircon unit, motor n compressor with removal of old unit and reroute casing. 3130 + 130 for bracket


I didn't take or even consider Mitsubishi cos of my experience with it. The aircon broke down on us twice in a span of 3 years n we still have to pay to repair it even though under warranty. Nt cheap either each repair costed nearly 1 k 😂😂😂

The best aircon piping for HDB is 3/4 arma flex or 1/2? A aircon company said no1 use 3/4 for HDB.

What other pipe & wiring quality i need to take note of?

- 3/4 inch Armaflex <-- can it be use for HDB ?
class "O" insulation <-- which class insulation is the best ?
- G23 copper pipe <-- is what copper pipe is the best ?
- 16mm drainage pvc pipe <-- is 16mm good or there is better ?

To SG_Jimmy,

Usually 1/2 is good enough for HDB.
3/4 is overkill & ur trunking will be very big.
Class 1 & Class 0 is referring to their heat insulating properties, redundant in aircon matters.
G22 will be better.
16mm is good enough.

Ekardo,

Try call 85055205 Jane. I have a quote Mitsubishi from her. Quite reasonable.

Agreed with terumo. if 3/4 then u can see very big trunking in your house.

Bought a Sharp System 3 @$2399 at All Best Tampines.

The guy also recommended Toshiba (Made in Japan) at $2999. He says both is faster cooling than Starmex and more energy-saving. And Starmex made in Thailand.

dont be fooled by the faster cooling demo, it feels that way because the toshiba starts up in high power mode

For inverter, usually they start in low power aka low hertz/speed mode.
That's why energy consumption is low.
The lower the speed, the lower the energy consumed.
The compressor speed will depends on a few factors.
1. Temp setting on remotes.
2. Room temp.
3. Feedback from air sensors & thermistor.
4. Outdoor (compressor) temp.

For sys 3, if u on 1 unit, it will run in low speed.
For sys 3, if u on all 3 units @ the same time & set to 18 degrees, the compressor will run @ high speed aka full load.
(That's where the NEA rating scheme comes in, the part & full load thingy which leads to the number of ticks awarded, max 5 ticks)

Actually, if both brands fancoil/outdoor unit btu is the same, the cooling rate should be +/- 10-20% similar.
What matters more is the reliability, after sales service by the brand agent & of cos, the workmanship of the installer.

(IMO)

Those who tell your aircon difficult to service and wanna charge extra are conman. Most of the reputable companies will charge you based on the quantity of fancoil that you need to service. NOT THE BRAND.
