Does cold engine gives the 1+2 warranty for your Daikin?
Email cold engine but they never reply. Guess they are not keen on my queries. Which place should I go for MIT starmex system 3?

From my past weeks of encounters and experience, none replied me on my request for quotation by email . Lol

In e end I got my quote from Cold Engine by a Michelle in renotalk forum.

Fyi, Cold Engine is actually AirconBestValue in renotalk forum. As for Starcool, the website is a different company from Star Cool (Aron & Boon).

We requested quotation from all 3. The Starcool website no response. Quote from Cold Engine & Star Cool (Aron & Boon) comparable in terms of pricing. If in terms of what''s included in the quote, Cold Engine is providing slightly more than Star Cool.

Just did my starmex system4 yesterday, very pleased with the results.

Guys, i highly recommend the upgraded materials. There's only 4 main materials to take note of - insulation, copper piping, drainage pipe and wires.

You don't want to be the person who finds out one year later that the wires corroded and you have to redo the whole house because the installer stinged on the quality.

Insulation: 1/2" armaflex. Cheap companies always give 3/8" option.

Copper piping: G22/G21. You'll rarely find people using G21. The smaller the number, the thicker the pipe i.e. G21 is thicker than G22. Cheap companies always use G23. G22 is usually the upgraded option. I opted for G21.

Drainage pipe: 16mm. Cheap option - 13mm. Smaller pipe gets plugged easily.

Electrical wiring: Make sure it's made in Singapore, brand like keystone. If it's china-made wires, stay away. Many online complains about corroded wires/signal lost etc.

Remember that air con installation is not supposed to be rocket science. I have read through a lot of online reviews/reports across the different local forums. I can safely say at least 80% of the issues are due to poor materials and/or installation technique.

I went to one of Daikin authorized shop and the guy was saying their package comes with standard installation and dont have to upgrade as spec. requirements are already calculated. Hmmm.....

Probably I would say yes as you can open the flap to clean yourself but thinking of the plastic might get loose and cause vibration noise after prolong usage so I rather get Daikin in the end.
