Hi

Anyone knows if i can put 2 condenser units on my aircon ledge(cement ledge built by HDB)?

Eg, say i have 1 condenser unit sitting on the ledge now, can i stack up another one on top, or must i install a bracket to secure the 2nd condenser unit?

Some salesperson tells me cannot,HDB dun allow. But i read somewhere here that max no. of condenser in a HDB flat is two condenser unit per flat.

Hi subht,

from Gain City. Today went to HN to ask about Hitachi, the sales guy said: "Hitachi don't make air-con one". Faint.

Lesson learner: don't trust the words from sale guy. Always ask around first.

I saw my upstairs have two. But it is not one stack up another. 2nd is just next to 1st one. (about half to one meter)

Put 2 outdoor units side by side, or slanting... but check with HDB whether they allow a not.

Bro terumo, side not enough space, my ledge is the small type juz enough to hold 1 condenser.

O i forgot about the current required..............is it enough to power two condenser units if i turn both on at the same time? I see the power point is 20Amps. Will trip?

Both units are system 1

Just want to get advise should I change from Hitachi (which I've ordered) to Toshiba.

For 3 bed room only. The following are from NEA. But other than the statistics, I would like to know whether Hitachi is recommended to buy or should change to Toshiba. (eg. based on reliability, user feedback, etc)

Hitachi:
RAM-65Q8
Cooling Capacity (kW): 6.26
COP: 3.38
Part Load COP#: 4.66
Annual Energy Consumption: 5431 (Full Load)* 1927*(Partial Load)

Toshiba
RAS-3M20SACV
Cooling Capacity (kW): 5.81
COP: 3.43
Part Load COP#: 4.44
Annual Energy Consumption: 4964 (Full Load) 1898 (Partial Load)
