Finally took the plunge and place order with Coolserve for a MHI system 2.
Installation will be on 9th June. Will see how it goes.

Wanted to go for 9000BTU as both the rooms are about 150 square feet each. But according to Coolserve, the distributor of MHI has no stock of 9000BTU hence the current promo for free upgrade to 12000BTU.
Also upgraded the insulation to 1/2" armaflex class-1 but kept the copper pipe at 23 SWG due to budget constraint.

Generally their price is on the higher side, only Gain City is more expensive than them. But their optional like bracket and insulation/copper pipe upgrade is more expensive than Gain City.
So overall, Coolserve and GC's prices are about the same.

Decided to go with CoolServe as my friend uses them and said good things.
Will see how the installation goes. Hopefully I made the right choice.
*fingers crossed*
How much u paid for it? Does it includes cables?

i read that the new 5-ticks starmex is noisier and the cost savings only achievable not in the first year if you dont use it 8hrs everyday.
any feedbacks?
i am torn between ME and MHI.
current family house using MHI no problems, so thinking if i should change for my BTO

Proshop giving additional 3months warranty. Seems cold engine price quite good leh...if include the free upgrade, then specs will be the same as Proshop but better deal from cold engine since it is $80 cheaper and include cabling

How nice if those who are looking at installing new aircon and combine their interest here then ask for quote. Maybe can have more bargain power.

Of course, the cost of advertising is being passed to end users in the cost of the aircon. I rather go for the extended warranty 1+2 from Daikin.

thinking of system 2, havent really check out the prices,
but which would be a more logical choice?

MHI SCM45ZJ-S (15.3k BTU/hr) ($535 annual elec usage) / SRK25ZMA-S x2
or
LG A2UQ18GFA1 (15.8k BTU/hr) ($564 annual elec usage) / AMNC09GDBA2 x2
or
Panasonic CU-2XS18RKZ (17.1k BTU/hr) ($558 annual elec usage) / CS-XS9RKZW x2

any comments? are their price range close? any reliability issues with these models?
