I am thinking of getting a system 1.. usage is going to be very minimal hence no need for inverter, cost is of utmost importance. Anyone has any recommendations for a reliable system which costs around $800-$900, inclusive of all installation costs?

Thanks.

To junkki,
Ur budget can get u a good brand.

But u need to factor additional costs like bracket & power point if u do not have existing ones.

To smintboy,

For this amount, u can get the Mit Electric Starmex model instead.

LG like a black mirror series of the design very cold and nice all flat.

But realiable & long runs, still prefer you go with Daikin , Mit Starmex or Pana model.

To be solve your trouble in future.

Don't buy Korean brands Air Con. Any Japs brands will do. Or follow the most common here, Mitsubishi...PanaSonic...Daikin....

System 4 for HDB flat

I'm looking to buy a System 4 fr Gain City to cool 4 HDB bedrooms (1 room is converted fr study). Considering System 4 from MIT HI n MIT ELE. Both abt same price. Any recommendations or advice?

MIT HI:

SCM80ZJ-S1(31000 Btu) + 3X SRK25ZMA-S(3x9000 Btu) + 1X SRK35ZMA-S(13000 Btu) for $3829.
$150 for steel bracket
$240 for upgraded piping n insulation.
FREE 5 years warranty capped at $1850 claims amount.
ADD $129 to make 5 year Warranty at UNLIMITED claim amount.
Add $580 for 2 year servicing (twice in 1st year, 3 times in 2nd year)
Total $4828.

MIT HI is a newer model with more features like louvres tt go up down n left right, self cleaning function tt dries up moisture (hopefully odour) internally,generates negative ions tt supposedly keeps air fresher n cleaner.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MIT ELE:

MXY-4A28VA7(28000 Btu) + 3x10000 Btu + 1x13000 Btu for $3839.
$150 for steel bracket
$240 for upgraded piping n insulation.
FREE 5 years warranty capped at $1850 claims amount.
ADD $129 to make 5 year Warranty at UNLIMITED claim amount.
Add $580 for 2 year servicing (twice in 1st year, 3 times in 2nd year)
Total $4838.

MIT ELE is 6-7 yr old model whose louvres only go left n right. Its only obvious plus point is tt it's probably quieter.

Are these fair deals? Any discounts or freebies tt I can get fr GC at EXPO fair this SUN?

Tks for replies n comments.

I guess both are the same.

Mit Starmex has a easy clean feature, for user can DIY empty dust on blower very often & higher BTU for compressor.

MHI can't DIY empty internal blower dust, must be call technical serving and pay extra, also smaller BTU.

Even MHI remote control also much ugry design.. :p
For me I would top up little for Mit Starmex Zen at AllBest IMM had carried it model.

The rest all same..
Wanna save money then go with Mit Starmex, if got extra money then go with MHI.

LG usually when brand new is quite cool and quiet operation, once turns to 2 yrs n above so got minor wear & tear then would be more headche like noisy or slow cold down issue or parts won't last longer than common Jap brands.

If you were find out in proper from Mit Starmex was higher BTU output.


7.5kw cooling capacity x 3418 = 25,635 BTU for starmex
