So if Fortuna can't provide cabling, do we need to engage electrician first or what, they don't do cabling work ?

I arranged for someone to survey my house today, but no show! called the person and no response.

Think can forget about this company.

Anyway, went to Giant in the evening and saw this Singapore brand, "Trentios" that is offering 10 years warranty and upgrading all installation materials for free.

Anyone using this brand? its 4 ticks and its made in Singapore, more reliable than Thailand?

Better to look for more repute brand , 10 yrs warranty jus to lure consumer to buy, if malfunction of aircon might bring you more frustration and unhappiness , why make life difficult.
Daikin or Mitsubishi the way to go. my 2 cents.

Isyean8, according to them, they can arrange for a site survey and their guy will advise how many meters needed for the cabling. trunking,insulation, copper pipes and drainage pipe is included in their installation, u just need to buy your own cables. I also don't know why they do it this way. I did ask them will their Surveyor after surveying my house, Cho Cho me to top up $ for the cables but sales staff say won't. Kinda skeptical so I didn't confirm the deal

has MHI released a new model for System 4?
popped by GC Sungei Kadut and saw the new Starmex Sys 4 (5 ticks) and it is significantly more expensive than their Sys 4 (2 ticks)
my family house is using MHI which has been running quite well

Singapore brand support but don't support blindly. Better go for reputable and proven Jap brand air-con. Less headache and no regret later.
Yup... I rather go for those Japanese brands

Xman, I was quoted 3k from Daikin Alexandra for system 3 but they exclude cabling. They have free site visit if u confirm with them. Otherwise, u gotta pay $50 for it. My friend confirmed with them but installation only in June. I will see if it's good then decide if to get from them.
I am having someone to take a look at the aircon whether feasible to repair, looking at Daikin system 3 but no vendor in mind yet. Might just call up Parisilk to send someone to access my ac needs, I regularly get stuff from them. Think I will need 9000 btu x 2 and living room will be 18000btu. Any recomend from you guys is appreciated. Noted the new Daikin(silver coloured) made from Czech and white one is made in Thailand.

Hi, from the starmex GE10-18VA model never has a issue so far, unlike GE24-26VA last time got some batch has fan motor & PCB an issue only.

If talks about parts for Daikin & ME starmex also consider expansive parts, unlike pana is a cheaper
starmex 28va is notorious for PCB issues. ask the service people how many pcb they changed in a day.

LG was in my list initially, but drop it after I ask around and not many go for LG. Price wise can get Jap brand liao.

the 28VA is referring to the fcu or the external unit?
