They quote me this price for 90m:
3C70 - $165
3C110 - $180
3C162 - $285

Forget to ask 3C40.
Recently bought 100 yards equivalent 90m keystone 3c70 at 125

3c70 90m only $125 then 4c40 should be even cheaper
my aircon repair quoted me almost $400 for replacing 3 cords of 4c40 control wires which total only needed 40 meters.
guess doing aircon business really can make good money in Spore
morever with the hotter and hotter weather and more people using aircon
this industry will never die and suffer much even during bad time

That mean what?
$100 wire
$100 transport charge
$200 workmanship?

My toilet flushing system the plumber charge me $250 each for changing inside hardware. I just now at hardware shop saw same brand same model only $25. I change 2 somemore and they take at most 2 hr to do both! I think lawyer dont even earn this amt in term of per hr.
I think these Malaysian all earn big big in SGD then change to RM all multi millionaires.
Jialat.... Everyone suck our blood dry dry....

Hi,

Based on my configuration :

Daikin System 4 (Mix)

Compressor : 4MKS80ESG

Silver Envi Fancoil (9K BTU) : FTKJ25NVMS x 3 (For 3 Rooms)

Normal Fancoil (18K BTU) : FTKS50FVM x 1 (For Living Room)

I think I should get back the Silver Envi 15KBTU for my living room, will it be insufficient in power to cool the living room?

- actually if you feel this price is unreasonable / expensive,you can buy cable or any related tools to change the aircon cable by yourself..those aircon people or installer risk their own life & work hard & even sweating to install / repair the aircon for you so you can have aircon to use everyday..you suppose need to appreciate them.

- common sense if all the malaysian earn big big money, then they no need to change toilet part for you / repair /install aircon for you / do any false ceiling job / or flooring job / leave their family member at howntown...these all low end job need to risk their life & health to do it..please respect those work hard people.

Simi logic is these?

1) Leave hometown = must pay them high?
China got billions of people leaving hometown every day to city yet cannot find job. Angmo also lost their expat package nowaday.

2) Plumbers = Risk their life and health?
Did you ever see newspaper got report plumber die in their job before?
The real one at risk are those delivery man riding motorcycle the whole day all over our island. They inhaled poisonous gas and risk run over by congested and high speed traffic. But at most they are paid $15/hr.

3) Respect = must pay them $500 for 2h job?

How many people here make $500 every 2h?
So, if not, that mean your career not worth respecting?

4) Earn big big = stop working dirty job?

I ask you har, if there is a goldmine behind your house, will you keep on digging until all the gold excavated or you dig half way you feel rich already you stop?

I mean want to make money, go ahead and demand a reasonable sum.

BUT, by charging $400/500 for an item that is actually worth only $20-100 plus few hr of labour is call chop carrot!

Ya, not only expensive I really think the price is very expensive. Ended I do the troublesome shoot myself with the wiring to confirm the faulty parts and decided to change the whole sysyem. If it only changing of wiring I will go buy the wire coil myself and DIY as mine have no much risk as the condenser is on a aircon ledge. It simply taking out the trunking cover remove the old wire and put in new wire reconnect the 3 wire points fcu and condenser. If the aircon condenser is hanging outside the window mid air with bracket I agree that is high risk and they can charge more but for my case is not. To bad for people that cant diy they got no much choices and got to pay the money to ask someone do the job.

There so many construction workers from 3rd word doing high risk tough job under hot sun but dont see they earning much also.
