Was visit few places like Court, GC and Best Denki for the system 4. Told by the salesman from GC that my old HDB can only use 8.5A system thus i shortlisted Starmex the popular 2 ticks package 10+10+10+18.
Btw, i saw from starmex voucher there is a table mentioned 10+10+10+24 also can use for limited current HDB.
May I know what will happen if my living room use 24k BTU instead of 18k?
My living room quite long with 4.8mx7.6m around 36m2. Is 18k BTU sufficient? Anyway Im not a person like to stay in winter country, thus i usually just set to 25deg with ceiling fan. Is the quoted package enough for me?

And also he claimed that the 5 ticks FJ models seems has compressor noisy problem and mit has investigate and states this is design problem they cant do anything. Is that true?

I do not recommend GC as the overall price is much higher than other aircon installers.

With the quality of workmanship and price in mind, I would recommend others that are cheaper by 10% or more.

Most importantly, the workmanship can be good if the house owner supervise the work. My experience is not to trust the installers blindly.

Just my opinion for your considerations.

Hi guys, if i go for a bigger compressor. Does it consume same amount of energy when running a 9000btu fcu as compared to a smaller compressor?

IIRC, invertor technology will consume same amount of energy right?

Looking at MXY-4A38VA (31400 BTU) / MSY-GE10VA (9000 BTU) × 3, MSY-GE18VA (18000 BTU) × 1

However is there an even bigger compressor? Above does not seem sufficient if on at least 2 rooms + living room at the same time.

one of the frequently mentioned 3rd party aircon installers and a Daikin Proshop installer both quoted me the same Daikin Sys4 (9/9/9/18)

4MKS80FSG/FTKS25DVM x 3/FTKS50FVM x 1

Quote based on upgraded materials(1/2 inch armaflex,g22, keystone cables)

but the Proshop is more expensive by $250
difference between them is the warranty

Proshop provides 1 year for workmanship, 5 years for compressor,1 year for all parts and 90 days for spare parts

3rd party provides 2 years for workmanship (1-2 year cover piping&wiring, 1 year for insulation),5 years for compressor, 1 year for all parts

is it worth paying the premium for Daikin Proshop?
also, what is the BTU for the compressor 4MKS80FSG

Btw... do all Daikin Proshop offer the same price? Or is there a particular branch that is cheaper?

is the compressor supposed to be sealed too? coz my relative claimed that when they delivered the compressor is already opened and not even in the original box while the room units are sealed in the original manufacturers box.
