what if i want to sustain 25 deg C when the sunsets, 9k FCU enough?
9k btu fcu is sized only for a normal room. If yours is any larger than normal, or produce heat more than a normal room, the 9k will struggle to remove the heat from your room, And you may not get 25degree. If it does ever reach 25deg , it will be after an extended period of time.

Also do not forget your compressor sizing as well.

Gian city and courts are always going to be slightly more expensive. But they are most convenient too. They have a storefront you can go and leave more about the multiple brands.

Cheaper dealers can be found online. Go do a quick Google and you'll find them.

Starmex is a reputable brand. You will not go wrong with it, although there are several other good brand too. All down to your price point and cooling capacity requirement
Yesterday, I was at the Gain City Sungei Kadut and seems many of their prices are being lowered further for their 1 year anniversary sale till 24th of this month.

Probably those who are interested to check out the air-con prices can visit the Sungei Kadut outlet as prices there are lowered than the other outlets.

lets do some study of LG inverter compressor for system 3. LG

Model ticks Max Power Annual electricity bill

A4UQ26GFA2 5 6.47kw $681 (ok not really enuff power for 3 fcu)
A4UQ26GFA1 4 7.18kw $818 (ok barely enuff power for 3 fcu)
A4UQ30GFA0 3 9.02kw $1077 (overkill, but suitable for those who wants 12kbtu upgrade or a 18kbtu for the hall)

lets do some study of LG inverter compressor for system 3. Daikin

3MKS71FSG 3 6.89kw $951 (barely enuff power)
3MWKS80LV1 3 7.41kw $982 (pls note this is sys 4 compressor)
3MKS50FSG 4 4.83KW $601 (not enuff even for 2 fcu)

LG is able to give the extra juice because it is using system 4 compressor for a system 3 and hence it create savings in money and power it need. feel free to check other brands.

Any way it seems new compressors models are being released by various brands. that explain the "discount and offer" given recently by various brands. they are clearing problematic models ?

https://e-services.nea.gov.sg/els/pa...m=goods&type=p
A4UQ30GFA0 3 9.02kw $1077

so this model cannot buy?

thinking buying this upgrade one unit to 12k btu....

cos my master room big...

now also using lg...since late 2007...alot of problem...yesterday air con not cold till on fan also

Yup i read lg air con got issues. I believe current batch shld be better since they dare to go 5 yrs warranty fir part n labour (nat aire girl told me warranty includes labour). Also, if five years then die i dun mind. Nowadays air con all dun last for decade. My starmex is alr dying after 2 yrs plus.

I guess the factor is whether you want save more electricity or better cooling, save electricity then the power drawn will be lesser and cooling also slower.

maybe ur aircon pipe chock or leaking gas. i get my pipe cleared and checked annually. one time after they clear the pipe, my air con power recovered 80% however it cant recover 100% as i believe the compressor not as good quality as before. now the power is dropping every few months.

not cannot buy just that i prefer 4 ticks where the power cut is not as much as the 5 ticks one. anyway nat aire dun carry the 4 ticks compressor as their sales confirmed. only 3 or 5 ticks.

12k btu can get the A4UQ30GFA0 3 9.02kw $1077 if u going system 4.

if system 3, LG A4UQ26GFA2 5 6.47kw $681 also can go btu 12k for ur master bedroom.
