how much it cost?
You mean the cost of the Controller for the 18K BTU Fancoil, I was told that it cost $160 for the controller whereas the rest of the Silver Envi fancoil do not need as it is built-in.

Probably it will cost cheaper if get from other installer but have to check on the pricing again.

To Terumo and other fellow air-con users,

are these kinda of air-con cleaners useful (see image below)?

Are they effective?

And most importantly, would it damage (eg: corrode) the fins?

User reviews most welcomed! Thanks!

I am using the one from Mckenic instead and I spray on the fancoil, let it penetrate into the fancoil then use the industry type of blower to blow through the coil, it will clear through the dirt onto the other side. It is cost saving in the long run and no waiting time to arrange for servicing schedule.

Thanks for all the brother's assistance and I have check out few shops and the Daikin proshop so decided to get the Daikin Silver Envi series which comes with the controller to control via smartphone. Only the living room has to use the other model and needtm install additional controller if needed.
you get this Daikin Envi?

Yes, I was quoted $4780 at Daikin ProShop with upgrade of piping and insulation included. Configuration is the 3 x Silver Envi and 1 x 18K BTU Fan Coil for System 4 but I am not getting now as my flat is not ready yet so have to get it later.

The spray oni clean the surface only 15%... only chemical overhaul can do the cleaning job 99%...

Seems like the parts reliability for Fujitsu may not be true, probably I should try Daikin instead since they should be the expert in air conditioning.
u just see in the market do daikin made tv, fridge and other hardware.. no right? cause they just specialise in Air Cond only...

Yes, you are right. This spray only used for general servicing and chemical overhaul cannot be done too frequent, probably once a year which they will dismantle the whole coil down to use chemical to wash the coil.

Anyone knows what are the differences between Daikin Urusara and Envi, including price?

My piping is already done, meant for Starmex 2-tick, supposed to install the fan coils and compressor towards the end of my home's renovation works ... think I can still use this same piping if I decide to switch to Daikin Urusara or Envi?

Oh, you mean you have confirm on Mitsubishi and piping done up without installing the fancoil and compressor unit? What piping, G23 and thickness of insulation used?

You can check from qoo10 also for price range. there is a aircon seller there, with the discount coupon plus cashback and credit card rebate is can be more cheaper if you are comfortable ordering online
Those are two ticks old model. they are clearing stocks not becoz they are cheap. selling at q0010 will cost them 10% commission.

i have checked with tim, aron and boon of renotalk their prices not that cheap also. u need to ensure the ticks before buying. coz with starmex 5 ticks system, the rest are clearing stocks on sale

For your living rm get a 1 system individual, better cooling. For Rms you can get the multi system.

Hi guys. I recently got a system 4 Toshiba inverter Aircon from GC at quite a good price. I only paid the deposit and was told that I can still change my mind to another brand of Aircon if I want.

Does anyone have any feedback on Toshiba inverter Aircon? Is it reliable compared to Daikin or Mitsubishi? I got the one with 34k BTU compressor, 1 unit for living room and 3 units for the bedrooms.

Thanks!
