After trying Trends/Trentios air-con, I can only say don't ever buy Trends/Trentios portable.

1) Not cold at all.

2) Noisy

3) Delivery men tried to charge us installation fees even though it was clearly stated in invoice that installation is free.

4) Servicing is $250 and upwards. According to customer reviews, they will pretend to take away your air-con, then tell you that compressor needs to change and charge you $250 and upwards every servicing.

Currently using Mitsubishi Inverter Starmex system 4 since 2009 replacing my 8 year old Daikin. Both brand I considered as excellent.

9x9x9x18 - configurations

My current starmex i think is the First Gen model, so far never break down. Did the usual maintenance over the years.

Moving on to my new BTO, I just purchased and installed the latest Mitsubishi System 4 starmex 5 ticks. Bought from Gain city, overall installation is fine. Some upgrades such as Armaflex, piping 16mm, copper 22. yet to move in to my new hse to test the actual power consumption.

Current config
9x9x9x24

As a heavy user, my AC is on almost 24/7 on daily basis. I hope Power consumption with 5 star ratings will help.

IMHO, its best to get a System 4 rather than a sys 3. Why? SG so hot. Living room sometimes need AC when me & wife hang around in the living room. It will be uncomfortable without AC. Pls I don't plan to install ceiling FAN. These fan won't help much to cool down the living room except blowing hot air.


I believe those that checked the first 20 pages in this thread will know the exact date I install my System 4 Starmex. Didn't expect this thread would grow to 446. hahaha
Is the new 5 tick better comparing to the old model (2 tick) for the Starmex ? Moving to BTO and is choosing between the old and new model... any bro has advice ?

Decided to get LG Health+. Heh.

I noticed that the installer didn't cover up the insulation pipes coming out from the the outdoor unit, saying that there's no space. Is this ok? Will it the outdoor unit spoil easier, or lead to leaking? It's usually the white casing that covers over the pipings from the outdoor unit.

Btw, My MBR rarely switch on air con, (once a year kind) and the installation guy says we should run the unit at least once a week for 15 mins.

He also says that when one unit spoil, the other units can't work also.

He also mentioned that we cannot frequently change temperatures, but I'm not sure what he means by 'frequently'. Does he mean changing within the same hour? Or is changing per 2-3 hours alright?

Are these true? I'm trying to see how much we can get away without servicing since we used to only service the old aircon after 10 years.

Any other tips on how to take care of the inverter aircon (other than regular servicing, as its known already)?

Nea making all effort to put ticks on systems. Very well done.
Maybe some other agency should implement stars or ticks system
on installers.

LG?

Hey guys,

Was at Gain City to look at Misubishi Electric (ME) or Daikin - System 3(9/9/18 BTU), and sales person highly recommended LG healthplus.
- Made in Korea, compared to others which are made in Thailand
- Silent, think same specs as ME at 19 DB
- 4 Ticks for System 3, comparing to ME at 2 ticks
- Considering current promotion giving $180 choice vouchers, the price is about same as ME

Any feedback and advice on LG? Thanks in advance and Happy 2016!

Got Toshiba inverter Sys-3 installed. Confused about the filter placement. Shall the blue color surface facing outside or the green one?

The two images online seem confusing also

To blacksmith,
The green colour is facing you when you open the cover.

One out of three of my Aircon unit is acting erratic, it spit out water instead of leaking. I tried adjusting the fan speed and temperature but the situation is still the same. Wonder have anyone experience this before?

Many thanks. There are 4 slots to install the filter and only two filters are provided. Install to the lower two slots?
