Hi everyone, I relocated two units of aircon from Paya Lebar to Toa Payoh in Dec 2016. The company that I engaged for the relocation also helped me with a chemical wash, etc. For 3 weeks, I switched on one unit of aircon on Fri, Sat and Sun. But over the weekend, I feel that both aircons, which share the same condenser, are significantly less cold. The wind is still blowing, but even at 18 degrees, the air is only slightly cold.

Can anyone help me here pls? Thank you!

Any comments for daikin's ftks35dvm or mitsubishi's msyge13va ? I am deciding on one.

So far, technicians tell me that it's easier to service mitsubishi than daikin whereas salespersons recommend daikin.

Thanks in advance.

reliable = daikin
servicing = mitsubishi or panasonic
spare part = daikin

hope it can help....

Is there any compelling reason why toshiba isn't talked abt in here?

I've noticed that though the label shows 4 ticks only but kwh value is lower then mitsubishi 5 ticks. Why is this so?

And personally, I've experienced toshiba system that lasted 10 years without any issue.

Hope someone can enlighten me
buy aircond = yr luck
the best brand now are Daikin, Mitsubishi Electric and panasonic...

Toshiba oso very good...

all unit will hv their own problem... if yr luck good the unit can last for very long period... if not few month give u problem...

it has 2 fans. the first 1 that powered masterbed room died initially, and the 2nd 1 died yesterday.

unwilling to get a new 1 as it's meant for my tenants.

Looking for replacement sys 3 aircon

Hi all,

Looking for a replacement system 3 aircon for the bedrooms. I would only need to replace the conpressor and fan coils (re-using existing piping). From reading the thread, it looks like ME and Daikin are the ones to go for. Since my living room is already a ME, I have decided to go for another ME.

Looking at the MXY-3G28VA/3xMSXY-FJ10VE, but here are some of my questions:
1. Any thing to look out for when the installer is replacing the fancoils and compressor? They should be able to use back the existing piping right?
2. What would be price difference between just installing compressor/fancoils vs installing with new piping? Couple of hundred?
3. Does not make sense to go for the 2 ticks model (MXY-3A28VA / 3xMSY-GE10VA) right?
4. Any recommended installer since this is just a replacement?

Thanks in advance.

Dave

1. Can use back if your existing pipes are in good conditions.
2. Need check with your installer for a quote.
3. 2 ticks is good if your usage is lower.
4. Can check out this thread recommendations.

My sister bought a 4 room resale flat. . I am looking for Aircon for 2 rooms. The unit is quite Windy and all the rooms have KDK DC ceiling fan.

Before moving in better to install Air-con so when temperature is hot she can turn on.

1) What brand of air-con preferred?
2) I have visited Air-con store in JP, opposite to NTUC, sales man said 5 Tick is not required. t tick is only for office? What is your suggestion?
3) I saw gain city advertisement, 5 years warranty for workmanship and Basic warranty of 5 years. Additional S$200+ pay to get full 5 Years warranty. Do I need additional payment and 5 Years warranty?
4) Any suggestion? where can I buy?
5) Since the it is old unit, need to install Bracket and electric point. Someone suggested get it done electrical point by another contractor because gain city etc charge additional. any suggestion?

Thanks

Hi,

1) Stormed & Daikin are the popular ones now.
2) 5 ticks is suitable for people with high usage. More then 8 hours daily for 2/3/4 rooms.
3) Read the terms & conditions carefully first before buying the extended warranty.
4) Check this thread.
5) Electrician to install a 15/20amp power supply point will cost usually $200-$300.

For technical questions, best not to ask sales people from retail shops. likely to come up with poor or unreliable suggestions.

I have personally tried a local company (www.newway.sg) and also recommended to many friends and relatives. So far almost everyone went ahead for either maintenance or installation. Ring them up if you have questions regarding your installation. I m sure they will be good help.

My cousin recently got a resale condo and have engaged them as well. They installed the new Daikin 5 ticks. Everything look pretty when I went over for their house warming / cny gathering last weekend. As usual, their workmanship really no horse run.

frankly speaking, prices are not going to vary too much if you are going for a reliable and established company for your new aircon. my experience tells me workmanship will be the foremost consideration.

good luck for your new installation
