Anyone knows what's the max btu I can install for a E flat? I can see some houses having 2 compressors outside.

I need 9000 btu X 4 rooms and 18,000 btu for living/dinning.

Not the max btu that u can install but by this:

Most reason of having 2x compressors be'cos the window ledge is not big enough for 1x compressor (system 4) typically.

this is what i hv concluded:
if wanna on only one bed room, get a non inverter multi-split aircon.
buy inverter if u always on the air-con for the living room and all the bed rooms "most" of the time.

i chk http://els.nea.gov.sg/mels/aircon.asp and note that there is actually such thing call a single split "inverter" air con.

thot all single split is non inverter to save energy? why single split also hv "inverter" type and 4 ticks some more? can someone explain? should i jus get a single split inverter or non inverter air con? my profile is i only on one bedroom every day, and on weekends, then on all. pls advise.

gain city got promote on sanyo brand now, but the compressor is soooo.... huge. was told there are 2 engines, cool down faster? anybody got anything to comment?

what's the best single split to buy now? what brand? where to buy and how much? inverter or non inverter based on my usage profile?

pls advise, i dun know much about air con. jus that recently the weather is getting so hot that i think i cannot tahan and must install air con now...

Just got my aircon serviced today... here's what my guy say about inverter units...

inverter saves $$ on electric, but in order to be 100% efficient, you need to get it serviced frequently, else it will still run at 100% load, and not at partial load.

Just take note if you want to install one.

Guys.. I am getting system 2 for my 3 room flat to cool the master & common room.
2 X 9000BTU should be enough right? or 12000BTU for master & 9000BTU for common room?

Also according to http://els.nea.gov.sg/mels/aircon.asp under Air-Conditioners (inverter),
anybody can advise the meaning of 'Full Load' & 'Part Load' under 'Estimated Energy Cost'?
Thanks.

inverter units only works best if you are a heavy user else it makes not much diff if you use the unit like once a week or so

Anyone wanna comment on their air-con installation by All Best? Preferably those who have their air-con installed more than 2 years ago.

anybody used this installer - Media air condition and trading services of Tampines before?

Are they any good? They also dealers for mitsubishi.

Any other recommendations for installers?

Do one usually source for one's installers or use those 3rd parties contractors of the aircon shops or dealers? Have heard many horror stories of screwed-up installations.
