hi guys. hope i can get some help. My panasonic inverter starting to give some problems after slightly more than a month from installation.

It emits this foul chemical smell when first turned on and it lasts for maybe 10 minutes before going away. I read that this is mildew? Can anyone give me some insight to this? Many thanks
Nothing to worry about as the smell is not harmful. That's common for models that come with ionizer. Some ppl can smell it, some don't.

Hello! just wanna ask if the price i was quoted is gd. For system 4 mitsubishi starmax

- MSY-GE10VA X4 (MBR, bedroom 2 , bedroom 3 , Living/dinning area)
- MXY-4A28VA

i was quoted $3900. which also includes all the upgrades, namely the 1/2'' Insulator and the copper pipe guage 22. It also includes 2 time installation trip ( i dont know why but he said usually they take 2 trips to install and some give additional charges for the second trip**hidden cost i guess )

Is the quote cheap/reasonable? btw my new hse is a 5rm and i was thinking since my living room is bigger wld the msy-ge10va be engh to cool the living and dinning room? Thanks in advance!

Confirmed MSY-GE10VA not enough... maybe consider MSY-GE24VA instead..

To Shenalle,

As per tk suggestion, 24k will be better.
9k is super undersized & ur living/dining room unit will not get cool @ all.

Best to use fan when first turn on Aircon to cool room

Fan will help circulate the cool air quickly

After some time, can switch off fan
