I found one that fits my budget. Think I will be getting from Gain City unless pros here recommend otherwise.

Im not sure how the trucking should go but this way will be least obvious

Hi need some advice from the aircon gurus here.

I am gonna start renovation for my resale flat soon. I plan to put 1 unit in the livin/dining area (18000 btu) and 9000 btu units in the 3 bedrooms.

So far I got one quote for a diakin smile series for $4350 including removal of old aircon. I only plan to use the 2 bedroom aircon often and I will run one room aircon overnight.

Is the diakin smile series good for my needs or should I consider other brands? Is the quote reasonable?

That's 1 good least distance of pipping to do. The shorter the distance, more efficiency of cooling.

Model quite good - 35K just more flowrate and more power consume, slightly overkill for your MBR only at 13.8m2.

IMHO - 25k is sufficient to cool room up to 15m2. Mine MBR is 16.5m2 plus 4 pax sleep over (kids like to sleep with us sometime), all hugged in thick blanket when set at auto mode 24C degree. Sometime cooling day I will set at 25C.

Includes 2 trip installation?

What materials were provided?

Your package include what? If for your pricing include all my spec then worth. If not, u will be a big carrot. Use GC and Court pricing as a gauge. If you feel reasonable then ok.

Smile series is their flagship, confirm suit ur need. Quote wise, I suggest you get 2 or 3 more to compare.

The quote $4350 is reasonable but can be cheaper.

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
anybody can advise?
