Would like to add on, this is what I got from Gain City. This includes new copper pipe and water pipe laying(about 15 metres). Site survery done. We felt this is quite expensive but we are not sure. This is our first house and we are quite inexperienced. Hence we would like to check with the bros here. Thank you in advance for any of your invaluable advice.

2x9000 and 1 x 12000btu.
Mitsubishi Electric System 3 Inverter=$4689.00
Model: MXY3A28VA~2xMSYGE10VA~1xMSYGE13VA

2nd quote:
1 x 12000btu
1 x 18000btu
1 x 24000btu
With 2 compressors.
SGD Total: $5878.00
1st quote, 2 ticks compressor.. Should be around 3k (all 3 are MSYGE10VA) without bracket and that price is not considered cheapest. Is your MBR very big? If roughly same size as other rooms then maybe can use the 10VA. My parents one (same as your 1st quote) from GC last year end also about 3.4k

Hi I just saw audio house moving out sale they have Daikin system 4:

- 4MKS80FSG (32k compressor)
- FTKS25DVM x 4 (9k x 4)
- $3,480 (with $680 audio house vouchers but can only use $20 per $100 purchase)

Add $220 to change one to 18k BTU for living room will be total $3,700.


Just want to get the expert opinions whether this is a good deal? Anyone has any experience with audio house Aircon installation? Thanks!
You may want to check again if the 4MKS80FSG is 24k or 32k BTU.

At first i find it cheap but realised they marked up their price of other items with shipping charges. So basically the vouchers are to offset the markedup price n delivery charges. It is a cunning marketing as it forces u to buy alsmost all ur electrical with them.

I prefer nat aire simple 50-350$ grocery voucher which i can buy grocery instead of being forced to buy more items with audio house.
Thanks but even excluding the voucher, the price seemed to be quite good or so I thought?

Ya i think it's a bit difficult to use the vouchers

Why can't all these companies just take away all these gimmicks and just give a good price.... Sure will hv ore businesses. I believe Wat we consumer want is the cheapest price with good workmanship. No need all the vouchers or oven or etc.....

Think your sales tried to be funny without applying all the inhouse discount.

this is what i got from GC last month,
2x9000 and 1 x 24000btu.
Model: MXY3A28VA~2xMSYGE10VA~1xMSYGE26VA
with all the insulation + copper pile upgrades at less than 3.2k

They have two prices, the good prices are display sets with less warranty. I also got conned till i checked carefully. Their real price is actually not cheaper than qoo10. Plus they have shipping charges which q0100 merchants usually wauved for expensive items. Also qo100 have 100$ voucher which if used will make ur tv, fridge and other equipment xheaper than audio house promo. Do take a look.

That's kinda cunning. Me and my parents walked in the Allbest as noobs (having not checked this thread). Sharp sys 3 $2599 + $150 bracket, all parts and installation inclusive. Sales guy didn't push us to any brand, saying that all the Jippun brand reliability is see heng suay and to avoid Samsung cos made in PRC.

nice, can you try 25deg + low fan, and if possible 18deg + low fan.
18deg + low = 23.3 to 24.1 w/ 53-58% RH

Will add again when I on 25 on low

ok ok lah. an indian and a malaysian guy were my installers. indian guy (lead tech) showed us how and where he would do the trunking, drill the holes, confirm with us where to place the FCUs.

workmanship nothing special at all i guess. although they did bend copper pipe and insulation by hand. all trunking gaps and wall holes were covered with sealant. they also spotted that we lacked a 15amp power point and highlighted to us, luckily we know a handyman so not an issue.

Hi guys. Currently looking to get aircon for my new 4rm BTO flat. My ID help me get from her contact she usually used and she told us:-

Daikin inverter
4MKS80FSG
FTKS25DVM*3
FTKS50FVM*1
$4200

She said the company is called NationCool. Any experience before?

Also, if anyone have any recommendation do let me know. Currently in the midst of finding one that is reliable and good. Not too sure if I should drop by the home decor fair to look look...
