anyone here having a similar Mitsubishi System 4 (MXY-4A28VA compressor with 4 x MSY-GE10 fancoils) installed for 4 bedrooms? Will the 4 rooms cool down fast enough and maintain its coolness thereafter?

Is $4700 reasonable with 1/2" thermaflex copper pipe (G22), 3C Keystone wire and stainless steel bracket?
I got a quote for same sys with standard material for 3799 for the 2 ticks mit 28va.upgrade to the material that you stated but different brand should be around 350. Add 150 for ss bracket.
Should be around 4300.think I was given a bigger fcu for the hall and room is ge10.

Been thinking and researching for very long, still cant decide between system 3 Daikin 22kBTU 4 tick model and Mitsubishi starmex 2 tick model.

want to get the daikin for the extended 2 year warranty but mum is super stubbon and insist on supporting daikin, her reason is because daikin sales not so good thats why give extend warranty. "no free gift in the world " mentality.

Daikin System 3 with 4 ticks is only having 17k BTU. Bro Cannotliao said it may not sufficient to cool 3 rooms. As I think it's will take longer time to cool the room.

I going to give Daikin a try. Alot said Daikin technology & quality not bad as she a Jap coy. Somemore with additional 1+2 yrs warranty really is no horse run.

Cause sometimes it is Heng sway your air con parts breakdown after 1 warranty period, and you ganna to fork out money to repair. Those air con parts are not cheap and with inclusive of labor charge. Having experienced with moi 10yrs + MIT Elec.

Oso my flat dun have late afternoon sunshine, front and back tio block and we switch on air con only before 9pm.
The btu are very inconsistent across websites. Their official website also not updated. Contractor told me 22kbtu for daikin 4tick sys 3.

Both have its fair share of complaints in various forums. I done my first aircon with GC and now trying my luck with AB. To be fair, both companies are established for a long time though the latter one is relatively smaller since it focused on Aircon.

Bought Toshiba from AB. Pricing wise it is about $300-$400 less.

Installation in mid May and will post update after installation. Keep my finger cross.

For those who are considering the Daikin system 3 3mks50fsg 4 ticks, if you're going to turn on all 3 rooms at the same time i would recommend that you get the 3mks71fsg 3 ticks or other brands. The 3mks50fsg would be suitable if you only turn on any 2 rooms at the same time. I was also considering the 3mks50fsg but in the end i went with Mitsubishi starmex system 3 MXY-3G28VA 5 ticks after listening to advice that the 3mks50fsg is not sufficient to power 3 rooms.

Hi,
For my new 5 room BTO, will be partitioning the study area into a room.

We're thinking of this configuration:
System 3 for 3 bedrooms
System 2 for study room + living/dining

Our usage Pattern:
12 hours/day for study room,
9 hours/day for MBR

May switch on living room when we're watching TV or during haze period.

Deciding between Mitsuibishi, Daikin and Panasonic.

Is the 5 ticks model for Mit Electric good? Salesman at GC told us that it's a new model and not much reviews. Also mentioned that the compressor is noisy and it's not as 'stable' as the 2 ticks model.

We're wondering it's worth it to get the 5 ticks model as our AC is on almost 20 hours every day. If the energy savings is not significant we may get the cheaper 2 ticks model, since he mentioned it's 'tested and proven' in the market.

He also mentioned that the BTU for Daikin will not be sufficient for our layout. And he didn't recommend Panasonic too. So we're not sure if he's trying to push sales for Mit Electric.

Also, is it necessary to get the 12k Fancoil for MBR or will 9k suffice?

Appreciate any advice!

aircon repair is never cheap. anything down will cost hundreds of dollar. the site visit alone for troubleshoot without any repair will cost around $100 per visit.

daikin is the best buy now with the extra 2yrs warranty on parts and if add in the 1st year warranty total is 3yrs.
mitshibishi was very popular largely due to the advertising and marketing. they got the most advertisement out of all brands.
if pricing aside, i will pick daikin over mitshibishi follow by panasonic or toshiba.
if go google or ask around all brands also got good and bad review. same brand some people using 8~10yrs or more without problem, some after the 1st warranty start to give problem and need to cough out hundred of dollar for repair so the best assurances is still the warranty. any issue we still can go back to manufacturer for repair work and that will save the cost alot.
