Power consumption very much affected by if the FCU is not clean periodically and Chemical cleaning not done when necessary. Additional heat source in the cooling area example direct sunlight, massage chair, hotpot and Audio equipment etc....

Thinking of getting a 3+1 system for my resale house. Just wondering what the BTU should be for my living room?


My contracted insisted I should get 24k but I think this is a bit… overkill?

I could opt for 18k / 20k and there’ll be q a substantial savings…

What do you guys think?

Also, anyone tried 2+2 before? Actually might be cheaper than 3+1 for some reason…

Is it advisable to use back existing pipes (around 18 years old)? And change later if any issues..

Anyone used 81 aircon for aircon installation before?
Happen to find them on internet search, responsive to text, prices quite attractive. Re-use piping.
Prices are openly listed on website for common models.

genuine reviews only pls.

better change all new. becasue using back more that 10 year old piping, insulation, wiring n drainage pipe affects its lifespan n giving alot of problem

For your information, people come here for recommendation or aircon issue..... hardly they will leave any feedback after installation.
Google review is your best bet.....

ehhh, please dont be baited by price without piping replacement. :cautious:

:frown:
General servicing recommendation is every 3 month, range $15~$35 per fcu. if u do 4 units in 1 go, can ask for better price.

My recommendation is only service aircon when not cold @ 25 or water leak or inconsistent airflow.

If want to save $, can DIY yourself.
-clean pre filter
-clean blower
-vacuum water pipe
