Do U plan for install single or multi split unit?

If single split can be consider for ME Starmex 15k btu much sufficient
Now already using 2 x single 1/2hp at two rooms.

Planning to get one more 1.5hp for my living room. Duno to get inverter or non-inverter

1.5hp just worry not efficient, if almost close up the door should be ok.

Should try with 1.75hp = 15k btu on ME Starmex inverter should be quite ok for u, if the door not close up at all.

Non-inverter has been phase out.

Ic thanks , my Fren's living room almost the same size as mine using 1hp can also achieve cooling to cold. Is it will use up more electricity?

My living smaller than your, the size of my living just 6.5x3x2.8m high only, we installed 13k btu, if not close up the door can feel the Aircon keep slower to reach.

If we close up the door can feel more faster to cooling the living area.

Whatever bigger btu = more power saving

I can answered you because your config same as me but my living room is using MSY-GE13VA.

I got from GC at around the same price as you and paid about 100 bucks more for the 5 years warranty.

I had used it for 2 months and so far so good. Last check my electrical bill went up by 20 bucks...............

I using on average 8 hours everyday.
Means yours is system 3? I think my compressor can't add one more air con. They gave me five years warranty and 8 years parts or donno what

To ipaq4444,
If to choose 1 pipe out of 2 to be insulated, I will choose to insulate the return pipe to 1/2.
Discharge pipe can remain at 3/8.

Hi Terumo,

Thank you so much for responding! if i am to do this, will there be a very higher chance of condensation? like 20 - 30% more or only slight 5% more?

from experience, if all the pipe for a system 4 is based on 1/2 inch insulation can it fitted into a 3x 4 trunking?
