wahahaha...

you're the only 2nd fella i know who uses 3/4" insulator and even wanted 1" if they have it! The other person was me!

anyhow, just to let you know... 3/4" could be an over-kill, but i'm not regretting. Hee...

btw, if you're hiding the pipes inside false ceiling... then I would be kia-su also and use thicker insulator... just to reduce any little chance of sweating which may become very messy for your false ceiling!

Hi,
we same tune
Any hope everything go well on the installation on next Monday. I will update pros and cons of GC if any.

To be frank with you, I have no confident on them fixing back my false ceiling perfectly as original because they are not professional in this area....still worry now...

Should I just changed the air-con with the piping ?? should I ?

Then I will back Daikin R22 sys 3 inverter.

still worry bros.....kids exams in 2 weeks time so if the installation was screw-up, then nightmare leow.

Hi,

The false ceiling is quite deep, at least > 20 inches below my actual ceiling so can put 2" insulator if there is any too...

As I said, worry about them cutting holes and fixing them back in proper shape is an question mark.

Anyone try GC for fixing false ceiling ?

Worthwhile to keep old air con or buy new one?

Because of house renovation the contractor quoted $1900 to relocate 5 fan coils and 3 outdoor units to the back of the house. Is it worthwhile to do so or just better to get new ones. All are non-inverter and about 2.5 yrs old only.

Did not source for better deals. Supposed to be special price and good deal because packaged with renovation. No?

As for piping, never ask. Most likely not all new pipings will be given. Is it important to have all new pipings?

They can also use new piping for certain portions and reuse back old piping for some portions.
