Pls help suggest:
I'm staying in the old type 5Rm point block. Those with 4 units each floor and Living and Dining areas are L-shaped.
There is a small ledge and I seen my neighbors put their compressor there.
My flat been upgraded by HDB.
Mainly 3bedrooms aircon used every night for 7-9hrs.
Living and Dining used only when hv guests or CNY only.

In my mind.....
For my 3 bedrooms = Mit Starmex System 3 ( MXY-3A28VA with 3 X MSY-GE10VA)
For Living/Dining = Daikin System 2 ( not sure )
(I cannot use System 5 as window too small for compressor)

Since I don't turn on all at same time, one contractor told me save money to get a System 4 and modify to add a "junction-box" to re-direct gas to Living and Dining units.....Anyone done this before?

Does Daikin / Mitsubishi has this junction box or its simply a universal type (any brand can use) ?

To STREAM2,

I think the junction box can only be used on Daikin non inverter model.
Inverter model cannot work with these after market box & warranty on equipment will be void once modifications are made.

Hi guys.
Just installed Panasonic aircon ytd. Initially on my aircon it was v cold until when I fall asleep and I woke up in the middle of the night that I realize the aircon is blowing lesser cold air. Is it normal? It is somewhat still quite cooling but less cold

My old national aircon don't have this and it was cold all the way

Inverter yes, once the temp reaching were reduce the compressor speed.

But make sure don't set to 26C, if 25C still maintain the cold until next morning.

I knew Panasonic got it such issue. Cause compressor not strong enough, even in JB user also complain about single split, have to set on 23-24C vs ME Starmex on 25-26C temp.

The pages too long, I personally using 3x panasonic inverter. quite quiet and cooling.

Any recommendation for new 3rm flat? (system 3) I don't really need v.cold air con, usually set 25-26 degrees with fan speed one. I need one that is v.energy saving. Cost saving and quiet is top 2 priorities

Thanks in advance.

Is it taxing on the bill if for one hour i using the air con and next hour i switch off and then on it again in another hour rather than 3hr at one go?

Go with Starmex ME will do, you able to set on 25-27C is depend your room size and also can able to set the fan speed on quiet mode at 19db only, you even can't hear any noise from the airflow at all..

Get the 3A28VA + GE10VA x 2 + 13 or 18k on living room.
13K btu if your kitchen has door, if 18K without door on kitchen area also able to enjoy the cold air.. To compare from 13K would be slower a bit to keep the living room area full cooling.. If got door for enclose it... These was like the bedroom too, to be enjoy the fully Aircon room.
