To wishxtreme,

This condensor can achieve up to 30k btu.
If you on living + bedroom, it will be 22k btu for living and 8k btu bedroom.
Still all right.

Yes.. the 5 ticks model..
The new catolog is out already?

The FCU model FJ not as good cause something wider than before, for FJ model length = 932mm vs GE 800mm length only, if space limitation would be a big suffer

Thanks for the information. Since i am new to the aircon stuff. Why is it 22k and 8k when it is quoted 24k or 9k/10k?

Hi Wishxtreme,

9k and 24k is the most optimal capacity BTU/hr. 8k and 22k is the average. If i never remember wrongly, exact figure is BTU 8530 and BTU 22519.

Depends on yr existing aircon is inverter or non-inverter type.
If inverter type, open trunking and check condition of insulation and whether if copper pipe is of min grade G22 thickness.
If non-inverter, you need to change to brand new inverter aircon and all new copper and drainage piping replaced (Inverter gas need a higher pressure which non-inverter pipes cannot handle)(Non inverter system will be phased out and gas top up will be expensive)

Old insulation may not enough to covering R410A gas as well, due to older R22 don't have issue for it, once you runs with new gas may condensation all the time.

Once is getting condensation would be too late, you might re-runs new whole copper pipe & new insulation n also new trunking too, total is a works and trouble too.

One short change all, will be save your time and less trouble in future too.

Unless your is concealed into walls.

2G20VA = 4.8kw = 16k BTU @ 985w only
3G28VA = 6kw = 20k BTU @ 1230w
4G28VA = 6.5kw = 22k BTU @ 1330w only
