Hi guys, I'm looking for either Mitsubishi Starmex system 3 inverter or Daikin system 3 inverter for my HDB resale flat. 9000 BTU for each unit.

I went to Gain City and All Best at IMM.

Gain City (total price is $3448)
- Air Con $3169
- Additional warranty for 5 years for blower and all parts $99
- Upgrade pipes to bigger pipes $180

All Best (total price is $3098)
- Air Con $2799
- Additional warranty for 5 years for blower and all parts $299
- Pipes are already 16mm bigger pipes
- Provides workmanship warranty that covers everything including condensation and any issues for 5 years

Which one should I go for? Or are there any other shops you guys recommend? Thanks in advance!
I bought mine from All Best few years back. So far I've been saddled with wiring problems and piping problems which they charge me although there's 5 years workmanship warranty. I am going to complain to them about this. So if the maintenance comes to a few hundred dollars more, I'll look for a more reliable company.

Thanks for the information. My friends have advised me to get from Gain City as well. Pay more for peace of mind.

Any Recommendations?

Hello guys. Any recommendations of place to buy air con?

Came across these 2 company:
stlairconditioning
ctair-con

Anyone bought from these 2 company before?

Both got ongoing promotion. I called CTaircon and the salesperson recommend me MHI instead of Starmex as she said that MHI is more of a power saver (3 ticks) than Starmex (2 ticks). Also newer and cheaper lor.

Price wise, stl airconditioning is more cheaper. I need just one air con for my bedroom using around 4-5 hours daily. My mum don't want to use air con as she doesn't like it. Don't know how she tahan.

So should I go with system 1 or system 2? Anyway my house 3 room hdb flat.

Nowadays so hot I buay tahan already.

Today got something on ME 2 ticks for sharing your here.
Below has simple info to understand a bit and before for selection and choosing your new Aircon.

Best on 2 Ticks, from ME Starmex 3A28VA Model

Note:
(2.5kw x 3412 = 8530 BTU)
BTU/Input Watt greater than 12EER = 4 ticks.

Non current limitation lock
Denoted for without current limitation lock is for
non suitable for all HDB flat only.

GE10VA = 2.5kw (Input watt 0.59kw) = 14.46EER
GE10VA x 2 = 5.0kw (1.28kw) = 13.3EER
GE10VA x 2 + GE13VA = 7.5kw (2.18kw) = 11.74EER (3 ticks)
GE10VA x 2 + GE18VA = 7.5kw (2.10kw) = 12.19EER (4 ticks)

Combine 2 indoors
GE10VA + GE13VA = 6.0kw = (1.74kw) = 11.77EER (3 ticks)
GE10VA + GE18VA = 7.2kw = (2.6kw) = 9.45EER (2 ticks) Poor
GE10VA + GE24VA = 7.2kw = (2.6kw) = 9.45EER (2 Ticks) Poor

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

Current limitation lock for HDB Flat only.
current limitation lock at 8.5Amp = 1910w
GE10VA = 2.5kw (Input watt 0.59kw) = 14.46EER
GE10VA x 2 = 5.0kw (1.28kw) = 13.3EER
GE10VA x 2 + GE13VA = 7.2kw (1.9kw) = 12.93EER (4 ticks)
GE10VA x 2 + GE18VA = 7.2kw (1.9kw) = 12.93EER (4 ticks)

Combine 2 indoors
GE10VA + GE13VA = 6.0kw = (1.74kw) = 11.77EER (3 ticks)
GE10VA + GE18VA = 6.7kw = (1.91kw) = 11.97EER (3 ticks)
GE10VA + GE24VA = 6.7kw = (1.91kw) = 11.97EER (3 Ticks)

Hope you guys/girls can be clear cut and understand what's
the meaning on Mitsubishi Electric Starmex getting 2 ticks only.

Aircon Recommendations

Hi guys,

I'm replacing my more than a decade old Mitsubishi units.

My home is a 5-room HDB but I plan to only install aircon in 2 rooms and the living room. My plan is to go for a system 2 + standalone for the living room. The 2 rooms are around 16m≤ each and the living room is around 30m≤.

The recommended heat displacement for each room is around 9k-11k BTU whereas for the living room, around 24k BTU(ideally).

My requirement would be for a single condenser unit to handle the simultaneous operation of the 3 fancoil units. So far, I was recommended models from LG and Fujitsu.

Any specific recommendation for the different brands and models of aircons?

Thanks in advance for any valuable inputs.

In before all Starmex come with 4 ticks, after NEA change thier requirement as higher specs, so reduce to 2 ticks only.

One more thing current limitation lock at 8.5A = 1.9kw watt no matter how you turn all the power just like 4 ticks as well.

The most important thing from ME Starmex has a better quality design than others.

The indoor coil and easy clean is the prefect for after usage and easier for maintainance, can be said chemical wash can be useless.

IF comes to Aircon servicing man, they will prefer ME Starmex all the ways, cause easy for maintenance as well

My aircon recently not cooling anymore suddenly. I don't know why.
I only turn on the aircon in the master bedroom. I occasionally on the aircon in my study room. My aircon setting is at 25degree.

Last week, i found that there is a musky smell when i turn on the aircon, and found the aircon is not as cooling as before. but in the morning after i wake up, the air feels cooler, though not as cold as last time.

I try all the other rooms (I have system 3 split mitsubishi electric starmex), and found all the other rooms aircon also not cold as before.

I go to see the outdoor compressor, it seems to turn on and then turn off after a while, then turn on again.

Does anyone has similar encounter before?

Is it gas leak? or compressor spoilt?

Any recommendation for repair contact?

To kuniabee,

Yours is a single system, its 4 ticks.
The higher number of ticks, the better it is at energy saving as claimed.
