Can I just ask if this Gain City $99 for 5 years warranty is a good, legit idea? Heard it's still chargeable despite the "warranty".

Not to mention GC will jack you on the pipe from 22 to 23 gauge when installing; or was it the other way round. Happened to my friend.

I'm a customer of GC and I bought my second unit in 10 years, never happen to me before and they honor the warranty once when my last aircon was down.

To qrsy2k,

If you on living + one bedroom, its fine as 9k + 18k = 27k btu.
If you want your living room to cool down faster then upgrade to 24k btu.

To tancheeru,
Ma56 is around 21k btu.
It might be been to your previous inverter is 27k btu, hence the drop in btu capacity, thus takes a longer time to cool down.

sys 2

looking for Mitsubishi starmex sys 2 , but I'm confused why the old 4 ticks now all 2 ticks nia ?
what models are the new 5 ticks ?

is there any panasonic models with 4 or 5 ticks ?

also i see installation done with quality materials, which shops will do installation with the good material?

also 20000 btu cu is enough for 2 9000 btu room units ? if so y some units sold with 28000 btu ?

Regards

To baku00,

Panasonic just launched a new series with higher number of ticks.

20k btu outdoor is sufficient for 2 x 9k btu.
28k btu outdoor is for other combi like 12k + 18k or 18k + 9k setup.

While I was shopping for a new aircon, a salesman informed me that the new Starmex system 3 (5 ticks) compressor tends to be abit noisy. As I will be hanging it outside my master bedroom he suggested to use the older model (2ticks). Therefore, I would like to know from owners of the new Starmex aircon whether there is any truth in this or is the salesman trying to pull a fast one on me.

I have just installed a new starmex 5 tick system 3 last month (Dec 2015). As the compressor is just outside my master room, I can indeed hear very loud noise coming from the trunking inside my room that was just connected to the compressor outside on the aircon ledge especially if all 3 blower are running (3 blowers running at minimum fan speed and set at 25 deg C.) If the blower is running at max fan speed, the noise at the trunking near the compressor is really very loud.
However, the noise is not so loud if only 1 blower is running but still can be heard in the middle of the night when the surroundings is very quiet.

As we only switch on the aircon during hotter days/nights and it is more energy efficient, I just have to live with the noise.

My system is MXY3G28VA compressor + MSXYFJ10VE blower (x 3 units)

Thanks for the feedback. That is a real bummer
