use until it spoil first then change.. cos it cost money to change...
But for a long-run money saving, may worth it, if the air-con is not enery saving type. Coz I'm concern of my month power bill.

Anyway, thanks.

I juz bought a resale HDB flat, and it comes with aircon installed, system4 aircon, brand name FUJI (FUJI ELECTRIC). Anyone knows about this brand, how's the power saving, etc.? Is it OK? If not, I may be changing it to a energy saver aircon, coz I use air-con regularly.

Pls advice, if anybody use/know this brand b4. Thanks.

i am told fujitsu brand not good..

woh.. yr living room need 30 btu......

actually living room should get non invertor and bedroom get invertor... this will save cost...


if bedroom use non invertor, on 1 bedroom is as good on all room.... since non invertor is single speed..

for invertor.. eg 28K Compressor... bedroom 10K each... so switch on 1 room use only 10K speed and not 20K. non invetor will operate at 28K...

Actually this is the first time i buying a aircon for my new home, Until now there is no aircon in my current home which my parent bought 15 years ago.I always believe that in regardless of the brand ,all air con will be no good if the installation and workmanship are poorly done.

As the shop does not carry mitsubishi 30k btu single spilt (some shop do carry stock for this ) , i 'm willing to settle for this fujitsu brand as that is highest wall mounted 30k btu unit.I do not wish to buy a 24k or 26k btu as i worried that will be no cold enough for my living room.The price for non-inverter and inverter fujitsu 30k btu is $2150 and $2350 which that why i choose the inverter.

I got most of the aircon info from singapore aircon blogspot website, ,for my usage pattern ,only masterbed room will be on every day for 7 hrs and the rest of will be very rare occasion...which mean at most i only on the air con for the masterbed room only, from what i heard is better to choose the inverter if two bed rooms will be switching on...now i also quite confused that inverter also save cost even u only on one aircon for a sys 3.

For my non inverter system 3, there is only one "compressor" outside but inside there are actually 2 motors,one motor connect to master bed room and the other motor being shared by 2 bedrooms, so my non inverter aircon will stil workl to the max like 3 air con turn even though only masterbed room switch on only?

Unhappy Please advise me on my new portable aircon purchase

Hi all,

I bought a Trends portable air conditioner from Carrefour last Saturday and it just arrived today. The guy who installed told me to set the unit at 16 degrees celcius but I set it to 21 degrees instead. Don't want it too cold. But it's been 2 hrs and the tempreture on the unit still indicates that it is still 26 degrees celcius. How long does it take to cool down a small room? I live in a 4 bedroom (the middle sized room). I don't think it is that big. The unit is pretty loud but this is my first air con, so I don't know how loud it is suppose to be.

It says it's suppose to be a low sound emission.

Should I return this unit? I was told I have 2 weeks to return without penalty. Hmmm... It doesn't seem to get cooler.

I woke up this morning. The unit has been running the entire night and it's still at only 24 degrees. I don't know if this is because it's a portable instead of a wall mount. Please advise me.

Saw GainCity offering Pansonic systems 2 Inverter CU3S18EBZ & CSMS9EKZ X2 at below $2k.
Tried searching the info for the model but can't find any in the net..
Just the NEA site showing the CU3S18EBZ got 4 energy saving ticks.
Anybody can comment? Very old model?
Thanks.

Trend Air cond

What ahppened finally? Did you return the air cond or did you set it to 16 degrees and used it? I saw they are having a promo today. So, I was thinking of getting it. Any suggestions?

the url below is the quotation the guy at gain city woodlands quoted me for the installation and all that

http://www.scribd.com/doc/3145976/Ga...from-woodlands

the large figures at the right is the total BTU for the compressor.

all are system 3 aircons using inverter technology.

mitsubishi starmex

fujitsu top is made in china

fujitsu btm is made in japan but old model

all models are 4 ticks.

each of the aircon itself is rated as 9000btu, so they will share the outside compressor BTU when one is turned on or all 3 is turned on.

anyone can comment pls?
