To MightyPigeon,

I dont think need $7k for a condo system 4 installation.
But that depends on your site condition too.
Maybe there is a lot of hacking & concealed to do.

Maybe you can get another quote to compare.

Hi Terumo guru,

I'm a newbie here and would like to seek for your opinion for the air-con installation.

I intend to install air-con for my HDB BTO 5rm flat as follow:

1) Master room x 1
2) Normal room x 2
3) Study room x 1
4) Living room x 1

My friend is suggested me to install Mitsushi Inverter System 4 for Master/Normal/Study room. As for Living room will be installed 1 single unit.
The usage in Living room is quite minimal.

In fact, i'm more prefer taking Daikin.

Please advise which brand is recommended for energy saving and suitable for flat.

Thank you.


Hi,
I am no air con guru, but why not a system 3 (MBR and normal room) + a system 2 (study + living) with 12 or 18k btu for the living room unit.

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.

will this configuration be cheaper to purchase or run as compare to getting a system 4 with a 38 btu?

say for MHI?

Yesterday just ordered Mitsubishi Heavy Industries System 4 (3x9k + 1x24k btu) at $3799.. which i think is good price..

but the Mitsubishi electric starmex condenser is smaller btu than the Mitsubishi heavy industry one leh.. may feel a difference if switching on more fancoil units at same time..


Tk, did you get the 38 btu outdoor unit?

Smile Starmex or Heavy Industries

Hi Terumo,

Like to seek your advice on whether Starmex or Heavy Industries is better / more durable?

I've heard mixed reviews/opinions from different vendors.

Thanks in advance!

To ipaq4444,

Starmex has better quality in parts & their parts/after sales service are better.

Hi guys,

Just got a starmex sys 3 installed about a week ago. Good service by Gain City Changi. Does anyone know what the bundle of white tissue-like paper roll that comes with each remote control is for? I asked Gain City but they told me I can throw it away. It looks too nicely rolled up and taped to be a filler item. I unrolled it and it's like 1.5 metres long.

But this is only possible if get directly from Starmex directly? Else if get from distributor, will need to depend on luck to get better after sales service?

Thumbs up

Hi Bros,

Need some expert opinions from you guys. Am currently deciding between this 2 models for new house - 4Room BTO. Mitsubishi StarMex System 3 Inverter VS Panasonic Inverter EcoNavi

Mitsubishi StarMex System 3 Inverter
- Easier to clean
- Heard from colleagues that the parts are of higher quality kind

Panasonic Inverter EcoNavi
- Price is cheaper
- Advanced nanoe-G Air Purifying
- Human Activity Sensor and Sunlight Sensor etc

Any people got experiences/feedback with the above 2 models ?

Thanks in advance !

Hi, thanks for your advice, in that case should I go for 20k BTU? I'm merely concerned that overcapacity might use extra power and possibly risk damaging the unit?
