I have tot of that too but I read the forum Some on it for 3 hrs but it's not even cool yet and the compressor is noisy for the newer models. Haiz

Basically you should think carefully about how much you save by going for an older, lesser brand, versus enjoying the latest energy saving tech, less noise etc.
I choose to save the earth, and pay a little more..

Question Dripping?!

Hi fellows, may I know if there is water continuously dripping from my FCU at the corner depicted in the illustration, what's going on, & how do I stop it? It's dripping steadily even though I've powered down the aircon (no compressor running).

How about Electrolux aircon? Anyone has any opinions?
Using it in my parents house, extremely cold, quiet and powerful. Reliability wise so far no issues after 2 years. Can't comment on compressor size or noise as it is on the roof and inaccessible for me to check out. Quite an underrated brand of aircon i must say,but only available through harvey norman and parisilk though.I'm satisfied with it and the price is good too, will likely but it for my own house too.

Answering a pm here:
No, my compressor isn't noisy. Low hum.
Unless you sleep next to it, it's not really noticeable.

Anyone can help with the following questions?

1. Any experiences with Audio House installation? Clearance prices are reasonable and I have use for the vouchers provided.

2. Use existing five year old piping from Gaincity which never leaked or take a chance on new piping by Audio House?

3. Panasonic or Mitsubishi Heavy Industry?

Thanks in advance!
Guys, any advice on audio house? About to make payment, do not want to regret my decision for the next five years

There's no need to go to one of the big dealers.
I got this chap "Lerwick" the owner is called Danny, and his services are fine.
YMMV. And don't just go cheap. The installers matter more than where you get your aircon from.

I found this shop in Toa Payoh last year. The guy is a nice guy and no hard selling. Believe he was a Mitsubishi Heavy Ind dealer as he kept recommending this brand. But generally he leave me to make a decision on which brand over the weekend before committing.

I took MHI System 3 aircon ($2,880) on his recommendation
http://www.streetdirectory.com/supreme-air-services/
My 16years old Fuji Electric aircon finally pack up and go last months and was looking and poking all over for good deal.

Thanks to Bro TigerzBeer for his recommendation , I realised that this shop is just a few block away from my house and so I approach them for a site survey and recommendation.

Cut the story short , I install MHI system 3 .
1 x SCM60ZJ-S1
3 x SRK35ZMA-S (12K btu )
Use back existing stainless steel bracket .
Armaflex D-022(7/8") and copper pipe
Replace all trunking except the drainage as it is being boxed up in cement.

Start work at 1130am and end at 1730hrs.
Very experienced installers , only 2 of them but they work fast and like clockwork liddat.

The damage sgd2988.00 cash, no installment scheme but you can also pay by credit card .

Saw Daikin's tv ad on their 5 ticks compressor, annual cost less than $300??!! What is the catch? Why isn't everyone buying that, since the operating costs seems much lower = lower electricity bills every month?

Is it just the initial high set up cost of Daikin? High maintenance costs, like BMW cars? Or am I missing something else? Hope someone can explain to the noob here! XD
