I got cold engine to install system 3 in my house yesterday.

The only negative is that they didn't bring enough trunking. Hence, they had to use 2 to 3 pieces for the casing cover when one long piece is enough. It looks uglier when there are so many joints in the casing cover.

I told the installer about it. They said that their boss didn't give them enough trunking.

For one part, a thicker trunking was used when small trunking can be used. This maybe miscommunication between me and the installer. Or it could be due to insufficient small trunking. Hence, he used a thicker trunking.
How is their workmanship for the rest of the installation ?
Hope you can shed some light.
Thanks.

Hi, I am enquiring if anyone used the Daikin Smile Series? How is it?

At the same time, is the following configuration good for a five room flat?
MKS80QVMG - Compressor 25,000 BTU
CTKS71QVM - 24220 BTU x 1
CTKS35QVM - 11940 BTU x 1
CTKS25QVM - 8500 BTU x 2



Thanks =)

Configuration

Hi All


I have recently gotten approval from HDB to install another compressor unit for my flat. The original one is outside Master bedroom. The new one on bedroom 2.

Intend to install 3A28 (10K+10K +12K) for 3 bedroom.
Another 1 to 1 unit (10-12K) for study room.

As I usually use study room during day time and sometime open up till living hall. So prefer to separate the compressor in order not to overwork.

Is this configuration ok?
Thank you!

Brother and sisters, any recommendation which brand inverter aircon won't have the on/off cycle of the compressor? So far my LG and Starmex inverter all got this problem. I heard MHI inverter don't cycle off. Is this true? I know, yes, I'm talking about inverter. As I like to blow aircon directly at my face, when the compressor cycle off can feel the temperature rise.. IIRC when I measured the outlet temperature difference can be like 10 degrees off during cycle off..

I'm thinking is there any inverter aircon which can really scale down and don't cycle off one.. Of course you can blame me for oversizing the BTU but 9k is the smallest when I bought it

2) Any hvac / acmv / Mechanical engineer here? Is there any non rotary compressor aircon? I find even dual piston rotary compressor a bit noisy.. Thanks!

how do i calculate the partial load consumption for system 3 and 4?

daikin smile catalog http://www.daikin.com.sg/images/medi...ILE_SERIES.pdf

mks80qvmg, 3 9k btu fancoil minimum power input 0.30kw, if i use only 1 fancoil is the minimum 0.10kw ? if its 0.30kw, 24 hours usage x 30 days = 216kw for 1 room while mitsubishi 0.18kw = 129kw.



mitsubishi 4 ticks system 1 9k btu partial load 0.18kw 3.7k btu


http://photobucket.com/gallery/user/...NDYzNQ==/?ref=


mitsubishi 2 ticks system 1 24k btu partial load 0.60kw 8.2k btu

Hi ppl, is it really normal for the aircon compressor unit (outdoor unit) to be dripping water from the base?

i am using Toshiba and realise that there's water dripping from the base of the compressor unit when the aircon is in use.

anyone using toshiba and has similar experiences?

I've heard from one of the IDs that Starmex 5 ticks a bit unstable. Not sure if its true but maybe it's something to think about. I would go with option 3. At least you get a 12k unit.
I heard from 2 IDs and 1 air con specialist that the 5 ticks is a little unstable and the indoor unit is slightly noisier. They said that even the distributor is pushing to sell the 2 ticks rather than the 5 ticks.

Yeah! I checked with two Contractors. They both recommended ME 2 ticks. So I shall go with that. But I realised I will need a water pump to as there will be a u-shape for my drainage pipe due to beam issue. Sighh.

Any 5 ticks air con user?

Lower kWh is one of the reason stopping me at the moment.
Aircon salesman all says due to lower compressor power, aircon will take longer to cool or no power so won't be cool enough compared to the lower ticks model. Thought the tech should be better to compensate?

Any experts or opinion here.

Anybody here using the 5 ticks Mitsubishi starmex. I just ordered a set but after seeing some opinions here I'm torn if I should change to 2 ticks instead. Is it really that bad?

Me too, quite torn between 2 and 5 ticks, wanted the 5 but so far many sale personnel all recommend 2 ticks, not sure is it really better or they just trying to clear 2 ticks aircon

I was also struggling btw the old & new model. Most shops told me only compressor noisier, if anything happen should be rectified within the warranty period... even you buy a Merc, it could also breakdown wat ...

My reno contractor also said his 5 ticks aircon so far so good.

So at the end, settled with 5 ticks system .... altho no yet install ...
