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.
Thanks for replying. Yes, the salesman did tell me their pricing is slightly higher as they are using good quality materials. I think they're quite honest in this aspect, otherwise they can always use lower grade materials to lower the pricing in order to close deals.

They quoted me $3,400 for Starmex System 3 (9k+9k+18k).

Your $3.4k is for 2 or 5 ticks model?

If 5 ticks, price is reasonable.

I go for 2 ticks. Heard that there are some issues on 5 ticks.

Hi guys, would just like to check: I've been offered two different kinds of insulation from two different shops, Yamato and Armaflex Class 0.

Each salesman is telling me that their product is better than the rest, so what's your own take on this?

Just to check, Gain City really that bad meh?

I went to see their prices quite reasonable compared to most of the other sources I've seen around so far, quite surprised about the recent negative feedback for them.

Can someone enlighten me further on whether they should really be avoided?

Coolserve is around $3200. You can try asking cold engine for quote, should be lower than $3200. Cold engine will straightaway quote with higher grade materials also. Got free servicing package?

Hmm... not written in the quotation but I will request from them.

What's the usual period? 1 year free service?

Other companies never provide free servicing but last time we bought from them got 3 years free servicing. If no free servicing then i suggest you get from Cold engine better, save money like me.

I'm more concern of workmanship and the materials used by the installer. Not sure how good is Natural Cool as their price is slightly higher than the others.

is not about the PRICE. is about the WORKSMANSHIP, how the outsource installers fixed your trunking and pipings... common sense, a shoddy job means in future there will be leaks and cost of fixing this will wipe out any good deals u have with them.

first installation - trunking + piping, so during reno, your id painter can paint over them first and also the back of your aircon unit
second installation - painting done means aircon unit up
