Seems like most here prefer MHI starmex. So few use daikin? They are like the best when comes to aircon right?
Mitsubishi Starmex dont get it wrong with MHI (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries)..
Daikin last time very expensive so nobody recommended.. now the price quite ok...
Daikin only make aircond product so they are the best... my home install Daikin... very good...

Is there any place that I can buy 1 unit of Starmex wall unit?

Need 1 for replacement.

Current unit, the air coming out like as if it is choked and chemical wash didn't help as comes back after a few months.
Do they do the a proper cleaning? bring down the whole unit ( metal coil, body, drain tray, blower and pcboard ) and wash the metal coil with chemical... sure can last very long... From REDCON AIR

Rheumatism
rheumatism pain is not caused by humidity or temperature. Instead, the pain is caused by low barometric pressure. This has nothing to do with air conditioning

My friend installed Daikin system 3 for 3k from Proshop Alexandra in June and so far no complaint. I missed the boat for the 3 yr warranty. We also checked GC at next door but their upgrade materials had to pay extra, unlike Proshop which included everything

my 2 years old starmex died on me two days ago. i suspect the fcu is gone case or the compressor is not doing as supposed. also i saw sweating on my trunking.

if call starmex. minimum 150+30 just for inspection..
U didnt take extended warranty? GC giving unlimited extended warranty but got to pay for peace of mind for 5yrs. Worth it?

depend on ur 5 room is old or new flat. the old one will need system 5. if new bto 5 room can do with system 4. however depends on layout of the living room and also if you want proper cooling. u can get MHI system 4 (1x 24k , 3 x 9k)


or MHI system 4 (1x ceiling cassette for your hall and 3 x 9k fcu for ur room.

or u can get 1 x cassette for your hall and a system 3 for your rooms.

or u can get 3+2 systems as per your ID.
bro, can recommend a system 5 aircon?

Yup! They did, they even chemical wash 3 times but still dirty. Tat why thinking of replace the unit.

Maybe do 1 more round of chemical wash then decide.

To gn2807,

If yours is the Starmex inverter (Mxy-Ge10xx) you can opt to replace just the indoor aka blower unit.

My father got it from a installer reccomended by a relative. Now regret but that time have high trust in starmex so now decide to go lg(free 5 yrs) or mhi(with extended)

Anyway for any brand, i already expect to scrap n get new air con system. Why i not get daikin is becoz the price not that cheap n their compressor seems underpowered. Etc.. Their system 3 using a system 2 compressor. Too bad i not getting system 2. Even if i wanna get 2x system 2. I wil get daikin for room n lg for hall as i may need need 2x 12k fcu which their system 2_ 5kw compressor cant support.

What i like abt mhi is ion for basic model. 2x 12fcu is what i need for my hall. Panasonic also a good choice if they still have promo for their 4 ticks system 2/3

What i like abt lg is their price, 5 yrs warranty n flexible compressor. Their system 3 n 4 uses same compressor hence i not worried abt the power n they have 3-5ticks to choose. However if need ion will need to upgrade to artcool which i not sure is the price to add on.
