How much they quote you on this 2 latest power saving machines?

I guess both are higher than 4 ticks at least.

1) MXY-3G28VA
2) MXY-4G38VA

Thanks

Hi Kimsim,

I was recommended to get this 2 models but i was not able to find them in aircon shops.

Can i get your opinion / advice on recommended inverter aircon model and what to look out for?


Thanks & Cheers,

Jeremy

Hi Gentoro,

Thanks for the feedback. Can you share which Fujitsu or LG models if you happen to know. Do they have high standby power consumption like Mit?

Cheers,

Jeremy
Just pop by any general AC store eg. Gaincity or Allbest n as. 4 tick is now only available for fujitsu n LG. Can try best denki also.

there aint many model per brand n so stop asking - what model have this n what model have that?

Best I recommend still mit SM. Depend on ur usage n ur hse, the SA will be able to help n recommend u 28VA or 38VA.

I have nvr encounter any AC stall which dun offer such model unless they dun carry Mit SM product. Try other stall n also pls pls... google!

won't recommend buying from All Best, salesman at the shop said the removal of the existing air con fees can be waived and any site survey will warrant a $80 charge. Because I bought a re-sale flat, so definitely will need to remove the existing air con to plaster my wall and also another site survey to discuss where the trucking are for my false celling etc.

They went ahead to charge me $80 for removal and another $80 for site survey with strictly NO ROOM for nego. Way too rigid to run a business this way. Salesman later backed out to say the removal charge cannot be waived.

Just sharing my bed experience. Definitely my first and last time with ALL BEST.

Dismantled is very common to pay right?

My Aircon man also charged me around $100..

If can wave maybe is a friend or very new Aircon then they can able for do resale for used set.

I am looking for a system 4, so am considering between Panasonic and Mitsubishi? Any drastic difference between the 2 other than pricing?

And thus far, best price I have seen comes from Allbest, any other merchants that I should contact?

Thanks

Its seem either they wanna carrot you or had already increase in price. Last I ask in Mar/Apr 2015, the price was 45 per fan coil for a R22 and 1/2" amaflex.

By this, you can judge what company are they that you are buying from.

I was quoted S$ 180 for my new system 3 on 12th April 2015 by GC

In the end, i paid S$ 3269 for 2 x GE10VA and 1 x GE18VA ( including the upgrades). I reused back the bracket that was used for my old Starmex
