It's about the price I paid last year. Mine is $20 cheaper
Mitsubishi Heavy Industry system 3 (9kBtu x2 + 18kBtu)

SCM60ZJ ; SRK25ZMA x2 + SRK50ZM

$2900


Material spec:

-16mm drainage pipe

-G23 copper pipe

-1/2'' thickness insulation

-keystone cable


is this worth while ?

Bro, that's what supply vs demand. Hard to really argue. If buyer find the price too high look for somewhere else.

For consumers like us, what we can do is to get these items that are more reliable and less prone to repairs before buying.

I am not a fan for those electronic item like LED display, sensory technology or smart technology yet. Feel that they more more prone to breakdown and have to spend $$$ to repair in near future...

Simi logic is these?

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

MHI is good brand no doubt, from Jap corp but why not go for Daikin, Panasonic or Mit Electric?

Due to the 3 are having their own warehouse, service centre here and commonly seen everywhere here.

MHI distributor is Wo Kee Hong group, third party.

just my opinion.

- if the plumber got issues you a invoice,then is you pay to their company / boss ,not them,they just a worker..one foreign worker work permit + worker insurance cost average $50-60+ per day..one worker salary per day $70+... material cost $20-100..one van/service car rental per day $40+...petrol $5-$10..one company account admin salary + CPF/permit cost per day $80+...(if they cant settle the problem for you,they still need to follow up the cases and some more give you the warranty period)..their company profit only $150+(not include government tax).for my personal opinion this price is quite reasonable..not a chop carrot.

so i called in passionair to do a check on the air con

first visit, made a check and said need another day to do a thorough check, charged me $80

2nd visit this afternoon, claims that they can't do anything, need to change new system, and they had the gall to charge $250

is that ******** or what?

can any experts tell me if that is even possible, change the whole system just because 1 unit is spoilt

some background: system 3 fujitsu, 1 unit not cold, all the rest ok

when i switch on the faulty unit, the coil of unit beside will become cold, even though it is not switched on

Did you bought it from those big store? Aka Courts, Gain City, etc? EuroAce is one of the brand I was looking at and was around $23xx...The one with LED light panel to show the temperature?

I got friends in the reno line that told me the trick is to go to these big stores just to look see the brand you want. Then go to the smaller shops, online or known installers to ask for the quotation. You will find that price is cheaper...

And the installer for my aircon (MHI) advice me not to get EuroAce when I initially asked. He said though compressor was Misubishi, it is not sure whether the parts will work as well.

Just my 2 cents

Anyone here tried/bought/heard anything about the 3 Daikin Proshops? Any recommendation which shop I should get new aircon from, assuming pricing & specs are the same?

- DIS Aircon
- Fortuna Aircon
- PassionAir

Ok, thanks.

I am also trying to find an installer with good review.
But seems like most of them do not have any.

Headache...
