Ytd go GC Sungei Kadut get MHI sys 3 with free upgrade 9k to 12k BTU.

SCM60ZJS - 3XSRK35ZMAS
Upgrade 1/2 class 1 insulation
Upgrade copper piping 23 to 22
Dismantle of old unit

2799 plus upgrade 117 = 2916

Is it a good deal? 12K BTU increase electric bills? Just realise the invoice nvr state the warranty how many years my bad

mhi is 3 tick so power consumption for its btu is quite ok liao

12k btu means cool the room faster and since its is inverter means after the room reach certain temp it will run low power.

compare to those 9k btu will take a longer time to cool the room. as it constantly using low power to cool the room

Roughly what's the cost difference we looking at monthly?
Most ads quote 30-50% savings, YMMV.

It's like using a bigger engine in a small car.
The fuel consumption may not be higher since the engine takes less effort to propel the car.

[QUOTE=Artliner15Aug77;102848487]Pray hard it not PCB. I tio PCB before, 2 located inside compressor unit need to change oso the fan motor, cause the repairman said motor might already spoil and will short the new boards if don't change causing more trouble and $$$ to come replace again. Prepare $850 inclusive labor. And the repairman advice us don't off the aircon power switch since we using it everyday. Eversince, no more hardware components problem till we change to new aircon this year.

That was in 2007. Mine was installed in 2005, that's time still new using inverter technology.[/QUOT

Is the aircon power switch means the isolator that is located at the compressor?
