Why don't you call a shop like Gain City to go to your place for a site visit, to advise and propose you some models? They can also check on the room sizes to find the right fit.

Just to check that you only measure the length and width of the rooms to get the room sizes, and did not mulitply the height, right?
I have went to the shop previously and the salesman intro me to go for the
22, 10, 10 without telling me which compressor use. I have show him the floor plan also.

Yes, I do not multiply the height.

A shop quoted me additional $800+ on top of the usual installation/equipment cost for replacing piping in the false ceiling. The aircon replacement job needs to open up 3-4 holes in the false ceiling, then cover back with normal white paint at the hole areas. Is that reasonable?

The quotation is for unlimited piping required to complete the work. I think the guy was saying the $800 is mainly for the opening/closing/touch up of the false ceiling, and the additional difficulty to work in the false ceiling.

The quotations I got are:
Toshiba/Daikin Sys 3 Inverter with 2x9k BTU, 1x12k BTU: $30xx-$31xx
Toshiba/Daikin Sys 3 non-inverter with equivalent FCU: $22xx-$24xx.

The $800+ is on top on the above prices. All include GST.

If I choose the inverter version, the total cost is close to $4k, higher than what I initially planned for.

Sign the deal with gain city at Singapore Expo today.
Price wise I will not say cheaper but they do give free extended warranty. Go for Toshiba brand as Mitsubishi only available on March and they are not sure it will deliver on time or not.

Good choice, can see the top 3 popular choice are Mitsu MHI or Electric, Toshiba, Panasonic and daikin.
