Got Cold Engine to do a normal Daikin system3 + compressor (was quoted $2950 with all the piping/insulation bells and whistles) for a 4-room at Sengkang. They gave me next to zero trouble, which was nice.

They should pay us for the consistent praise we give them here

ermm with gain city it is like playing lottery, if u get a good installer, kudos! lousy installer, headache years down the road.



how long your friends stayed in their house? 3-4 years or more already? these problems dun surface fast or sometimes surface very fast.

just do your homework and read horrible reviews about gain city on the internet and also this thread.

Hi Bros/Sis,

May I check, usually when determining the height of the fan coil unit mounted on the wall, do we follow as per installer's advice as they told me generally they are able to position it with 2 fingers gap as allowance to ceiling.

after they open my fan coil unit's box, i went to search for the manual and it says position it as high as possible on the wall, allowing minimum of 200mm from ceiling which is 20cm?

i verbally told them to follow 200mm as per manual's guidelines.

not sure if this is the right way to go thus wanna seek some advice as they're at my place now.

Nice. Planning to go with them too. Daikin looks really attractive with the extended warranty. Just to check, does that price include the system 3 voucher promo they're currently running?

yup.. good quality
Daikin better or Mitsubishi? The salesperson discouraged me from getting Daikin. Heard that time got noise issue with Mitsubishi but now just recently resolved.

My parents house used them, installation is good, trouble free after 3 years. When my parents got from them, their pricing is slightly high but give 3 years servicing for free and they have been calling up regularly to make appointment for servicing.

I didn't use them for my own house though as their pricing is not so competitive so i went with cold engine instead which give me a good deal and is very responsive in my dealing with them.
