How is the natube quality?
I cannot find single info of this brand in website. Anyway, there is no "ISO" wording written on their package.

Just came back from Alexandra Center, went to Gain city, got a quote for the same system(4MSK80FSG, 1x FTKS60FVM, 2x FTKS35DVM) and GC price is cheaper by almost $300.. Tempted with the extended warranty up to 5 years costing additional $129. Did look at the LG Artcool. Look sleek but read the review that it has alot of issues.

No, I did not upgrade copper pipe due to budget constraint.
As you said, their optional upgrade pricing is the highest I saw, even more ex than GC.

Anyway, I read your post previously and mention this to Coolserve. Their reply was, if I wanted DNE for the 22SWG copper pipe, all I had to do is tell their installer on the day.
So, what does it mean? Any time they got 2 set of brands coil in their van and if you keep quiet, they give you cheaper one? Then, how abt trucking, electrical wire, insulation pipe and etc? If i dont know anything thing and i keep quiet, are they going to provide me with what they claim in their website?

ME or Daikin or Panasonic?

Hello all,

Care to give advice on below;

I'm looking for system 3 (2 for bedroom and 1 for living room). My room sizes and 12.5 square meter for the bedrooms and 20 square meter for the living room.

1. Which brand will be better? (Budget 3K but can be up a bit if need to)
2. Which place to buy? (Electronic store or Installation companies)

MY SPEC 4MSK80FSG, 1x FTKS60FVM, 2x FTKS35DVM -

Fortuna - Daikin PRO Shop - $3980
Nataire - $3900
GC - $3850
Cold engine - $3800

Materials similar - 22 SWG copper pipes,1/2 inch Armaflex insulation and bracket.

GC can extend 5 years warranty. Just worried about their workmanship, read quiet poor nowdays. Leaning towards cold engine.

I don't like GC. Felt cheated. I bought a machine from them and they told me agent warranty is 1 yr and asked me if I would want to get their extended 4 yr warranty and I agreed. When the washer was sent to my house the warranty card stated 2 yrs warranty. I went down to check with the same saleman and he told me when I get the extended warranty, means they cover 3 covers. Nabei.... So they eat me one yr
