According to Alexandra, you have to buy your own cable. If u have the site survey arranged with them, u can ask the Surveyor how many meters you require then buy it yourself

www daikin com sg slash index dot php slash contact slash proshop_dealers_retail

as from the website.. all 3different companies operating Daikin Pro shop.. if you read their introductions... The on e at Alexandra being the youngest in the 3.
However, i am considering to go the one at Alexandra.
the specs i was quoted were"
3MKS71 - 9kx3 - Inverter - 22Copper and 1/half inch
for $3k nett ( 50% deposit and 50% on the installation day)
I told them mine is new BTO..
but they nv mention about cabling.. will there be topping up in the end?
Whats your opinion?
Would suggest you get them to write down a black & white quote stating all the items, to prevent any 'misunderstanding'.

Don't end up with "You think, I thought, who confirm".

Just remember, there's a $50 charge for site inspection, refundable if you order from them.

Hi

I realized that generally in the specs "standby power" is not stated. I was intending to buy a single split aircon, interested in brand "P".
I came across the thread in renotalk on high standby power.
I then googled and looked at the official specs and I don't see it.

Do you guys know somewhere you can check or is this a mostly obsolete issue?

Thanks

MHI 9000BTU to 12000BTU upgrade promo

Hi,

I am considering getting a MHI system 2 for 2 rooms (each 150 sqf).
There is a promo ongoing which upgrades the blower from 9000BTU to 12000BTU.

However, I read somewhere that getting a higher BTU is not necessary better.
Something about the higher BTU will means the air is circulated so fast that the humidity cannot be remove fast enough.
Seems logical except I am curious why if the blower is design for 12000 BTU, it could not remove humidity adequately at that volume?

Should I take the upgrade or keep to 9000 BTU?
Anyone has any advise?

Additional fact: most of the time, only 1 of the unit is turn on.

Thanks in advance.

I wonder if the upgrade will over load the compressor if all are on at the same time.... I like mhi for the price and 3d feature and dont really like starmex... Daikin attractive part is 3 yr warranty.... So confusing to choose... Maybe just hang some ice pack on my fan will do...

Yes, MHI has the 3D control feature meaning the controller can use to set 6 up/down, 8 left/right direction.

I just used the "Clean" feature(after a year of installing, haha) whereby the aircon can auto-clean itself internally. This cleaning take 2 hr, just wonder will it be good or not...

Just another note, the controller has many button for various setting. Some may not like it as other brands has lesser buttons. and the operating manual written by the Japanese suck, had a hard time to understand what it mean....

So far so good. MHI is around 22 DB and I am ok with it. I installed my MHI system3 last year April and no issue yet *touch wood*

For power consumption, the aircon company told me its lesser than Starmex(which I not sure also) He told me that average monthly electric consumption is around $80 for MHI System 3. Mine is around there ~$70++.

Not sure about Starmex, maybe someone here who had installed can advice

The room faces west and the window span across that whole wall.
So yes, it does get quite a bit of sunlight in the afternoon to evening.

However, base on some formula I found online, with that considered, 9000B still be sufficient for that room size.
So my concern now is whether the higher airflow will lead to lesser humidity being remove from the room.
