Just saw your post, i would like to check as i am planning to get Aircon soon for my new hse and most probably buy Daikin. So... All Proshop standard package it G22 piping? 1/2" insulation also?
I not sure if different Proshop offer different installation package but no harm checking with them since I think got only 2 or 3 Proshop in sg. Just don't confirm on the spot before u check all the dealers

Ha, my Daikin system 4 really good in saving my electrical bill and cooling. no nonsense features added to my usual operation.
No regards after installed, of cause come with a price not every one can afford .
a bit regret. some more buy the mirror finishing units. should just go ahead with Mis Heavy industry.

Daikin price is overkill, but if it can last more than 10 years, then it worthy. count your math.

Nat Aire has promotion for LG till 30 Sept.

I am thinking of replacing my koyak Sharp system 2 with LG High Cap system 4.

Anyone has bad experience with LG aircon?


This afternoon went to Nat Aire and ordered LG System 4 at S$4,171.90 with 5 years warranty on Compressor and Spare Parts.


Before ordering, the Sales Staff will ascertain with you to ensure that there would be no obstruction such as built-in wardrobe etc and that the distance from ACU to the furthest FCU is not more than 15 m away.


I also ensure that they supply the bracket which is big and strong enough to accommodate the ACU as mine is High Capacity (which means bigger ACU). My past experience is if the ACU is not sited horizontally and parallel to the ground level, or tilted slightly or not fastened properly to the bracket, in no time, the ACU will kaput due to unbalance of bearing (which caused great wear and tear to the compressor) and unnecessary vibration.


The specifications of my order are as follows:


a) ACU - A4UQ30GFA0 (Made in Korea)


b) FCU - AMNC09GDBA2 - 9k BTU x 3 no & AMNC12GDBA2 - 12k BTU x 1 no (All Made in Korea)


c) Upgrade - Kemflex - 12.7 mm (half inch) insulation & SWG21 cu pipings


d) With S$350 Choice Vouchers


e) 12 months interest free installation plan @ S$347.66 per month using UOB Credit card.


I will update on the installation and the workmanship in due course.


So stay tune!

I am wondering which is more accurate?

1) http://www.wikihow.com/Calculate-BTU-Per-Square-Foot

or

2) http://residentialairconsg.blogspot....nstalling.html

it seems like option 1 is widely found in the internet.

Coolserve website very long time no update liao...

you can use http://diyappliances.com.sg or http://coolworldaircon.com.sg/daikin-aircon-promotion/ to do some comparison... maybe not apple to apple for cold world buy it around the same. BTW, i asked around, it seems like when you upgrade to bigger fcu, it is ard 100-400 buck depending on the size.

U can use back the existing power point (it's called a isolator) if it is still working. No need to do new one. As for bracket, unless it is corroded and not safe to use then need to change.

Stayed in multiple apartments and have agents in the family. I'd avoid Daikin as they are unreliable, noisy and not cold - even for a brand new set.

Can't say much for their higher end units, but the standard Daikin fair should be avoided imho.

No issues with mcquay and the rest. Toshiba has fantastic made in Japan compressors, but the blowers.. could be better.

Based on what I see and hear...mitsubishi's the best? What about panasonic btw.
