To AciDJC,
These 2 brands are of similar quality.
thanks, I just got the Daikin 3MKS50 with FTKS25 x3 from IMM
rerun new copper and drain pipe
free upgrade to yomato piping 3/8 45m

all in all $2805 include GST

not sure worth it or not.. but the salegirl say Daikin more reliable

so anything to take note when during the installation?

3MK50 = 5kw capacity x 3418 = 17k btu only, if switch on 3 units at same time the compressor works very suffer, no wonder that PCB not last up for long..

Also the price can consider for Starmex inverter that compressor at least bigger than Daikin.

3A28VA = 28k btu the cost including installed at around the same.

Just few month back mine bought from AllBest IMM.

At my block, Mitsubishi was the most common, followed by Panasonic and LG. But truth be told, every experience with any brand is kinda heng suay.

yah, but some brands are more likely to be suay than other brands.. and if really suay then the post-sale technical support quality will matter..

To AciDJC,

If you seldom on 3 at the same time, 3mks50 is sufficient.
If you always use 3 at the same time, i suggest you upgrade to 3mks71.

think I will change to ME one as it got higher power, have to think of long run.. alternative will ask if change to SMKS71 how much more need to top up

the ME they have is the SCM60ZJ-S and SRK25ZJ-S, think should be enough to cool 3 rooms, also SCM60 has higher BTU then 3MKS50

Do not confuse, if you wanna change to MHI and rather stick back with Daikin and change to 3MKS71 will do..

MHI for SCM60 only.
ME for 3A28VA

You are right. 3MKS71 much better than MHI.
Unless you go with Mitsubishi Electric : ME.

In term of cooling & quiet from ME do much better than all.
But no point, I guess ME much expansive a bit.

Panasonic, hitachi, Sharp, MHI all lower budget a bit.
Due to MHI FCU more difficult to maintenace, unlike ME have a easy clean access into blower.

25 deg C should not cold like WINTER. If it is the case, sensors must be haywire and need to be replaced. Otherwise, you have to monitor your electricity bill.

Bro, the forum is a casual talk, he's using a metaphor to describe the room is already cold with just 25deg setting. And I believe everyone here can understand it.

Honestly my house also used ME, for our room and living room almost set with 25C for sometime just play with fan speed only.

Cause if less than 24C cold until foot, can't even sleep as well.
