system 2?
not sure why there are ppl say Mitsubishi no good but to me it is good.
I think the blowers more or less the same ba... maybe compare how quiet lor
But for sure the compressor is much quieter than most if not all other brands cos I did the comparison at Gaincity... switch on one by one and listen ....

perhaps my concern of compressor noise level only applicable to those live in older flat where the compressor is HANG directly outside the master room. The gaincity guy who install even put pieces of rubber at the edges to to dampen vibration noise. So I get a very quiet system

that was 3+ yrs ago... now still going strong though not as quiet, if I listen very closely and being picky, but I think my neighbours compressors are still louder

looking forward to change to the inverter model 5 yrs later
it is confirmed quiet and fast cooling for sure........

anybody using this panasonic inverter aircon?
http://www.panasonic.com.sg/web/pid/8813/Spec
any comments on it?


if you going for Panasonic make sure your window height allow the compressor to go through. Panasonic out door unit is bigger and taller.
Mitsubishi unit size is 1 of the smallest in local market that why some people go for it simply because they dont have much choices due to the window.

and they will get a pleasant surprise and be glad that they were "forced" to buy a better aircon .... and felt ashame for making a wrong choice in the first place to have selected panny

Hi Air con gurus! I need some urgent help on the following.

I just bought an apt and I intend to replace my existing air con systems as they are 8 years old. The current set up consists of a System 3 (Master room 12k BTU, Guest room 9k BTU, Study room 9k BTU) and a System 2(Living and Dinning room 12k BTU each).

My air con usage is typically daily (Master, Study rooms) and occasionally (Living/Dining/Guest rooms).

I arranged for 2 site inspections but both technicians proposed different configurations:

(A) Follow existing configuration, ie. 3 rooms (System 3) and Living/Dining (System 2). This technician reasoned that this configuration saves on servicing as (given my usage style) I need only to service more frequently on the outdoor unit of System 3 than outdoor unit of System 2.

(B) System 3 (Living 12k, Guest 9k, Study 9k), System 2 (Dining 12k, Master 12k). This technician reasoned that this configuration enables both outdoor units are more evenly utilised, which is better in the long run.

I'm indifferent to both but what do you think? Do both explanations above make sense? Or is there an optimum configuration not stated above?

Thanks so much!
Hi! I have the same dilemma.

Proposed set-up is
26k = 18k (living) + 9k (bed)
26k = 18k (master) + 9k (bed)
26k = 18k (dining) + 9k (study) + 9k (utility)

But this means using 2 outdoor units in the day (living+dining) and at night (master + 2 bed).

not sure if it would be better to use
36k = 18k (living) + 18k (dining)
36k = 18k (master) + 9k (bed) +9k (bed)
18k = 9k (study) + 9k (utility)

so that only 1 outdoor unit will be used at one time.
