this one depends on whether u like any brand or not, usage, functions, other factors..

mayb its better for u to read from 1st post onwards.
no particular brand, budget around 500-800 for a single unit.. easy for self cleaning if can save some energy would be better.

if budget around 500-800 would be only casement and window unit. so tat wil not save energy.

mayb to increase your budget for a split unit so to hav better performance, more efficiency n able to self cleaning both the condensing n evaporator unit..

hi guys... just wanna share something about my air-con problem. (sigh!)

If you've read my earlier post, I mentioned I upgraded my insulation to 3/4" ARMAFLEX on the copper pipes.

However, water has been accumulating inside the trunking leading to one of my FCUs just 2~3 weeks of running it.

GC came to check and it's interesting that it is not the insulation on the copper pipes that's giving problems, rather it was 'sweating' on the drainage pipe instead. GC removed the original insulation on the pipes and use a thicker ARMAFLEX one. That seems to have solved the problem but it has been 2 months and water is slowly being accumulated inside again (sigh!).

Anybody has similar experiences or solution? I'm thinking of asking them to run a separate trunking for the drainage pipe... but wonder if it'll help

Did GC suggested anything instead of re-route the trucking? BTW, how did you notice the water accumulating inside the trunking? Did water drop from the trucking or the FCU or what?
