sorry what do you mean by that ?
Haha, this is a technical feedback based on some reviews. Apparently some air con installers wrap two copper pipes together when doing the insulation, probably to save the insulation materials. That's why it's good to check on this as well.

Are your pipings exposed or concealed?


For an old apartment, the internal pipes are about 8 years old already. Is it advisable to change them? Or flush and reuse them?

Looking for Air Con solution for my resale flat. No air con installed at all, 5room with open kitchen concept.

ID recommended 3 x 9k BTU for bed rooms and 1 x 24k BTU for living. She suggested going with a 28k BTU compressor, or upgrading to a 38k BTU compressor.

Any thoughts?

Just worried that if i turn on all 3 rooms at the same time, thats 27k BTU, will the 28k BTU compressor be able to take it?
Bump, any thoughts or advice?

Turn on 3 rooms will not be having any issue since all rooms is 9k btu.

However if you on living room + 1 of the room, the btu will be going down.

If i turn on 3 rooms in the long run, will the compressor be able to take it? Or is it better to buffer?

Their Daikin promo should still be on? I think the only thing that ended was the extended warranty by the manufacturer for the FCU.

Thanks for the review bro, gives me more confidence to engage them! Did they use a single insulation for each single copper pipe?
if you look at the blower side, the gas pipe and liquid pipe is joined together from factory one lei.. only separate out after like 50cm. so take it with a pinch of salt those technical feedback unless he is a real mechanical engineer.

what you should worry is workmanship.. 9/10 installers no passion one lei, you tell me who ever use torque wrench to tighten the pipes? who ever use proper flaring tool to join the pipes? who ever do proper leak test for joints? who ever use proper aircon tape?

out of 4-5 aircon installations i observed in the last 10 years no installer does proper job as per manual

even my gas man never use gas-rated Teflon tape to connect the pipes. as long no accident no one die, no people will care. terrible culture of some countries

Hi terumo

Mitsubishi or Daikin Aircon, which is better? Thinking of getting a system 3 and 5 ticks one, for energy and money saving for my 4 room resale.

Thank in advance!

To MightyPigeon,

If ur room is < 15 square metres, 9k is sufficient.

mitsubishi starmex ac

1) just pray tat ur friend company don't close down.

2) Although nowadays jap brand no longer making their product in their own state, but the design of the aircon and quality control is there. Just like Toyota Vios. Made in Thailand. I'm still driving this car for 5yrs and its working very well. Another example, Apple iPhone, designed in california, assembled in china.

3) Aircons if taken care well can last u minimum 10yrs if maintenance on regular basis.

4) should ur friend company close down, be prepared tat hardly or nobody would willing to service ur aircon. nobody will be tat silly and risk service a CHINA MADE aircon.

good luck bro. u need it.

Hi there, I would like to change my 4 aircon unit. Called a guy down to check on my current aircon unit and he said the cost of repair isnt worth it. I'm ready to change the 4 aircon units but he said since the piping runs through my cabinet, they would need to hack it. This is a major problem as he would need to hack 3 cabinets and it would be totally destroyed and the cost of replacing it with 3 new room cabinet isn't cheap either. My question is, is there a way for them to install the new aircon units without hacking away my cabinet? Thank you
