hi guys, anyone know is it against HDB regulation to install window or casement aircon on window facing corridor?

ask a few second hand sellers and all give me different answers, abit confused by them.
Why not just check with HDB ?

I used Cold Engine, they are fine. I have been using mine almost every night. Gaincity got too many cases of horror stories.

Top up from what? If you are getting the same configuration then top up for what? You need to make it clearer for us to understand.

for me, they quoted 4K for MXY4A28VA / 2 X MSYGE10VA / 1 X MSYGE13VA / 1 X MSYGE24VA. but they have promo, can deduct $150 off. so become $3850.

check ur quote. the promo they listed near the bottom of the quote...

I am looking for system 3, 5 tick.

Comparing Daikin and Mitsubishi, it seems like Daikin is much cheaper.

Daikin MKS80QVMG (25200btu)-3XCTKS25QVM(9000btu each) = $3519
Mitsubishi MXY4G38VA (about 25000btu)~3XMSXYFJ10VE (9000btu each) = $4549

Prices from gain city.

Am I seeing something wrong here? I intend to turn on all three 9000btu indoor units at once.

Should I also be considering other brands?

Try not to conceal aircon trunking because will likely need to replace in future.
