Hi guys, for old 4 room HDB with no existing aircon is there anything I need to take note of?

Looking at Daikin System 2 or 3, TIA.

Wanna buy daikin from gain city. But seem that they can only install a few weeks later. Anywhere to buy other than courts or big box?

Hi all,

If y'all are looking for aircons, I would recommend Uniqool. They reply with a quote fast and provide good services. Comes with extended warranty too.

I would say the price might not be the cheapest, but reasonably competitive due to the value added service and upsized materials.

Yeah, I got Mitsubishi electric system 3 for close to 2 years now. No problem so far. Still under warranty

You are in the same GG situation as me, pipings well hidden behind custom-made cupboard.

Personally I don't think the old contractor would be of any good, they won't be able to remember and who knows which sub-con worked on your house?

Best to get a new surveyor and start from scratch.
Thanks for the advice . Need to hunt reliable surveyor liao . Must make sure my wife happy with the arrangement lol

Yes, my quotation from Cold Engine also requires huge deposit amount as they mention that they need to purchase the aircon from Daikin by 18th June and promotion ends around end June.

I was also told that I need to pay for the D Mobile as no longer free but the amount is lesser than $120 from Cold Engine.

Guess there is a misconception from some of the dealers that they actually bundle the D Mobile into their aircon package so it seems free for the customers but at the dealer's end, it is being purchased separately.
Anyone got their aircon installed by Cold Engine ? How's their workmanship?

Also, anyone has any experience with Howsyllane Engineering or Willy's Aircon?

hi guys, need your help to access if this deal and the package is sufficient...

Currently second room hack away and combine with masterbed room...
I intend to install 2 x compressor as i want it to be cold... still thinking to have living room as 1 x standalone, than the masterbed room and guest room to share 1 compressor or the other way round...

there's 2 option with different BTU....

option 1 (Grand total : $5600)
- mitsubishi electric (Is it starmax? or MHI?)
- Model Muy24va Msyge24va
- Total $2400

- mitsubishi electric
- Model Mxy 4a28
- Msyge24va x01
- Msyge13va x01
- Total 3200

Option 2 (Grand total $5600)
- mitsubishi electric
- Model Muy24va Msyge24va
- Total $2400

- Mitsubish electric
- Model Mxy 4a38
- Msyge24va x01
- Msyge13va x 01
- Total $4000

Both package comes with
- Armaflex class o
- Keystone cable
- 22swg copper pipe
- 16mm drainage pipe

I am sliding towards option 1, but afraid that the compressor will not be able to provide the coldness as compressor is only 28000BTU (Needs to support 24k BTU and 13k BTU units)

Oh ya, the pricing got kena carrot or not ah???
Any expert can advise me on the following things?

Sorry for posting so many questions....

How big is your living and bedrooms? Normally nowadays bedroom 9k btu is enough. 12k btu if your room is bigger.

Anyway for the Armaflex insulation I am told by my vendor that the difference between them is just the fire rating. not much difference actually. something like class 1 is fireproof for 1 hour, class 0 is fireproof for 2 hours.

However for class 0 there's a lot of parallel imports, so we might not get the real quality goods. For class 1 there is only 1 kind.

Therefore I'd agree and go for class 1 as well.. since its cheaper. Those that do class 0 are just "upselling" unnecessary stuff i guess.

I think it's a bit ex, but it depends on what type of fcu they give you. Uniqool is offering it at $3688 for system 4 2-ticks

Does Lazada provide installation?
