Are they good
Quite ok but note the insulation used is not armaflex but this kemflex brand at that time when i bought.not sure if is long lasting but when i bought with qoo10 discount is really good price at that time but now they increase price already but still competitive.

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.
Which vendor did u go to for ur aircon package? Thanks.

Upgrading is always a matter of preference, to installer and most people the specs offered by DIS should suffice, but if you kiasu of course can upgrade any or all part(s).

If prices are almost the same among the reliable brands, go for extended warranty.

my 7 years Mitsubitshi Heavy Industries System 4 aircon going gone soon. Recently after turning on awhile, it will switch off itself. There are 2 lights showing on the unit, one yellow and one orange.

Took a look at the manual, an orange light accompanying a yellow light means something wrong with compressor. My aircon is also not cold. For the past month, had 2 aircon technicians to come and check and service. It was okay after they left, but few week later problems arise again.

Was thinking to change. Still could not differentiate what is the difference between Mitsubitshi Heavy Industries aircon and Mitsubitshi Electronics Starmex.?

Or is Daikin a better choice? What do u guys think of the Samsung triangular aircon?
