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
New artcool Platinum sys3, FCs 12k + 9k + 24k with CU A4UQ26GFA2 (5Ticks)

about $3.7k with $200 choice voucher before all the top ups for GS extended warranty and piping/insulation upgrade.

It was really a last min switch from 2ticks Starmex to 5ticks LG, one day before the scheduled installation. Cuz suay suay our less than 3yo MBR single split starmex broke down 3 days before the arrival of new system 3 for 2 common rooms and living room. Had a family discussion and wifey doesn't trust starmex no more. Texted my GC sales guy and surprisingly he still entertained us even after we have made full payment top notch service provided by Eric from marina sq branch (am in now way related to him, but really need to praise him for the service he provided).

Wifey did a detailed price comparison, factoring in the cost of 5yr extended warranty (covering parts and labor and transport) from GC and annual power consumption and assuming the new sys3 will serve us for next 5 years before next aircon sys change, operating cost for 5 years + equipment cost for the annyeong LG is still lower than the sawadee Starmex.

Specs on LG website for the CU is at 29.6k btu, but NEA tested result is around 22k btu. I believe NEA's result is closer to reality cuz it takes more than an hr to cool down my living room (around 50sqm) to 26degC.

GC's pricing is in general on the higher side but what attracts me is the 5 years all covered EW although you need to top up for the EW but hey one faulty PCB(and you have multiple fancoils) is enough to wipe out all the savings if you go with companies that can offer you 2-300 dollars cheaper but without extended warranty options. This is just my humble opinion.

Using a starmex inverter which failed me in less than 3 years so, don't know which brand i can trust now. lol. (only trust the warranty now hahahaha)

sorry lor my last visit to sungei kadut GC was like in December 2015. doesnt matter if free parking is 5 or 6 hr but for sure the free parking duration is enough for you shop and seal your deal there.

think next time after i provide some info, i should put a disclaimer "if i remember correctly", if not people will start accusing me for "any how say"

read about people complaining that LG aircon start to chut pattern after the first year, but on the other hand, our old LG system 3 served my family well for 12 years without any major issues. So we took into consideration the worst scenario, what if the new generation LG really cui to the max and broke down multiple times, multiple fancoils, so decided to pay for EW.

paying around 10 dollars/month (consume one frappucino + 2 breadtalk buns less a month) for the peace of mind . all depends on individual and if one thinks it is worth paying for EW.

disclaimer: this is just my humble opinion

Any opinions on current generations of Daikin? Both my grandma and my place uses daikin and already more than 12 years old. Still can work but I guess it doesn't cool so fast anymore due to weakened compressor. I hope to get something that can last longer and not break down within 3 years type. Am also considering LG due to the warranty.

I'm deciding between daikin or starmex for my house. So far I do hear complaints about gc workmanship for air con installation.

Not sure about their price but based on what posted here, the price looks good.

the two guys from GC who installed my sys 3 were quite good with the pipings/trunking, only issue was the drilling part, and not sure if the blame was on them or should i blame the precaster of the wall. supposed to drill a 3" x 2", but the end results was like rifle gunshot wound , the side where they drilled from, was a nicely done 3"x 2" hole, but on the other side . I heard the guy who drilled the wall cursing "diu"

also the clearance between top of aircon and ceiling, out of 3 fancoils, only 1 has the recommended 200mm clearance. seems like most of the installers go by the rule of thumb of 3".

lesson learnt, next time should really go thru the installation manual that comes with the fancoil before installation starts to ensure the brand/model specific requirements are captured.

Guess it is really heng suay.

My Starmex Sys 3 just broke down last week, only 1 year 3 months and the main pcb started giving problem. Total repair cost about $4xx.

Did a search online and seems like Starmex pcb always spoil... hopefully I don't have to change again 12 months later.
