Natair builder for LG a little bit cheaper. But upgrade to better insulation and pipes about the same. But netaire has $300 choice voucher and 5 years warranty on parts.
i think the voucher and warranty is from LG. at least for my LG. can ask the sales.

seems like Gaincity anniversary sales is still on

upgrade for copper pipe and insulation for sys 3 is $180 so take 35% off, about $117

then they have this -3% off then another -5% off the list price for selected aircond brands (applicable to MIT, LG and some other brands, not for daikin tho)

Ya, I think the extract is throw in by netaire. I don't know why netaire is still able to get the 5years part warranty despite other dealers has ended. My last minute perchase of daikin was after the dateline for most dealer, and yer daikin honors the 3 years warranty.

To maryk6,
Pricing around there for the 5 ticks model.
Hi terumo,

I have a problem with my sanyo SAP KRV96GDSW. The aircon blows cold air for a few hours and the operation light will begin to blink and blows warm air. If I leave the aircon off for a hour or two before switching it on again the aircon will work normally for a few hours before blowing warm air again.

I called sanyo's outsourced service company and was told the problem could be a faulty PCB or thermistor. The cost to replace the pcb is $700 and the thermistor is $260 and in addition the labour for them to come to check the problem amounts to $180. Its too very expensive. Do you know if the PCB or thermistor can be repaired instead if replacement? Thanks.

how long from the date you place ordered then they come n fix?
One day can finish fixing 3 unit? No existing trunk and bracket
I ordered and got in one week.. But cos the installer is my friend. But outside also about one week one LA.

Assuming no complicated trunking and stuffs sys3 I think still can one day.

You can try coolserve. They don't charge for coming down tondo diagnostic. But competencies of the technicians varies among the team.

Got quote from Gain city.
all 1 12btu + 2 x 9k btu
Starmex MXY3A28VA =2938 ( 2 tick /30k btu )
LG A4VQ2GFA0 = $2896 (3 tick /29k btu)
LG A4VQ26FA0 =3031 (4 tick / 26k btu)

1/2 inch insu and swg 22 copper and 16 mm drainage pie =$115

good price?
think so...

other brand not considering...

cos they c.c installment no need admin..

i know best tech 5% extra , creation and one more 4 %
based on your requirement, nat aire 1x12k,2x9kbtu + LG A4VQ26FA0 = $2896 (3 tick /29k btu) can be gotten at only $2628 if u search hard enuff. (only $100 voucher but can reduce further price with a $100 coupon - $2528 - $100 voucher =$2428)

and yes 24mths UOB cc 0% installment at no charges too.

just found a way to get another 3% (75$) off the price.

And for your info, it is clearly stated in the LG artcool fancoil installation manual that min clearance from TOP of fancoil to ceiling is 200mm. Only saw that in the manual after installer left. LG emphasizes this with a caution mark stating that cooling capacity will be reduced as well as increased operating noise if 200mm clearance is not met. Which is kinda true for me now. I surveyed the fancoil and I think nowadays, even for other brands the only air intake is at the top of fancoil. So if the min clearance is not met, air intake will likely be restricted especially when you go for higher fan speed.

I have 3 fancoils installed and only 1 unit has that min 200mm clearance.

The other 2 fancoil installed with the installer's presumed adequate min clearance of "3 inches" .

If u have L box at your living room like mine, it is really not practical to achieve 200mm clearance between fancoil and ceiling because if u follow the guideline strictly, your fancoil will be too low.

power consumption is good, a 6yo 318L non inverter fridge running together with the aircon system at night averaging 8kwh per night (readings at power meter recorded). 10 hrs usage (9pm to 7am) for my 2 common rooms 12kbtu + 9kbtu, set at 25deg C, reaching target temperature less than 20mins monitored using digital thermometer.

I hope the LG system will last me at least a 5 years. (Praying hard)

my starmex single split 12k btu inverter is already dying on me now, and it has served me for only less than 3 years.

same here for my starmex, it is not as solid as before.

How much is ur artcool sys 3 and how many ticks compressor? thks

Warning of aircon company : JK aircon specialist

QUOTE=Hottyhot;102341688]I wonder what does jk means? [/QUOTE]



No idea. It may be the short form of the name of the owner. Company only registered 2 years ago maybe dats why they do business like dis. Money take already got any problems is at your own expense. Mine was installed a few months and have to wait 3 weeks for inspection, as they said they are too busy. Then this installer blamed our usage as problem. ( ? )
Not forgetting dragging debries through my flooring and unpatched holes on my walls, saying it's not their job.
I think it's quite lethal to treat a new customer this way.
Hence if you are trying for a new aircon company, it's better to go with recommendation.

Just realised that nat aire maybe toking abt extended warranty (cover labour n transport) instead of the LG warranty (parts only). Those keen to get lg, Pls call nat aire yourself to confirm in case of unhappiness.
