To tit4ns,

The $2979 (nett, including GST?) is quite reasonable for a sys 3 installation.

But those additional warranty, u have to read the T & Cs carefully before committing.

Hi terumo bro,

I have bought the Mitsubishi starmex from gain city @changi city point...

$2979 + $150(bracket) + $180(tube and insulation upgrade) + $129(additional insurance coverage with no limit cap) and they have 3yrs labour warranty, if their workmanship not good, it'll be covered ...

Total bill to be $3438... the salesman very friendly too. It's a good experience to get from gain city.

To kristangel,

My suggestion,
U can get a single system for ur master room.
If it is used daily.
Then the other 4 units to a system 4.
Or master room + 2 bedroom a sys 3.
Study room + living a sys 2.
As suggested by bro wacko82 too.

If living is seldom used, no point getting a single system for that alone.
May I know which brand is recommended for my unit? Mitsubishi, Toshiba or Daikin?

Thank you.

Just went down to GC yesterday, GC has reduced the price for Starmex Sys 3 recently... The last time I went previously was on late Nov before the price reduction.

Brands to recommend

I always stand by the fact that simplicity offer the best in terms of valuable and repairability. I know there are many brands that offer different kind of technology like ions cleansing or easy clean etc. However at the end of the day after warranty what so ever, you will be paying for all these 'complexity' charges. Trust me that few years down the road, an aircon serve just to cool the room and you probably end up calling third party agents to aid in your preventive maintence or servicing.

Go for inverter system, cause you never know how much electricity prices will go up and most of the electricity consumption comes from aircon. Pay a bit more and save much more in the end

Dear forumers,

I bought my resale flat 5 years ago and it came with a toshiba aircon which previous owner installed. And recently when I on my masterbed room aircon, it short circuited whole house circuit, but the other 2rooms aircon seems to work fine... few days back I asked a aircon guy to check on my aircon but was told that my 1 compressor that is running my masterbed rm aircon is gone case liao...

That aircon guy stepped outside to my main unit and do some things, and it stopped tripping my whole house elec circuit...

Few days later, the aircon starts tripping again... I called the guy, he told me to get a new aircon cos this compressor if repair minimum 600-800...

I need some advice from forumers here, on which brand and model to go for? I'm looking at a system 3, 1 masterbed rm, 2 common room... and advice on where to get it... I heard that gain city have some reasonable offers and their workmanship not bad...

I thank u guys in adVance. I appreciate greatly. Thanks..
ur case sibei similar to me
but now still tripped 2-3x a day after aircon disconnected
