Am been reading the thread upwards til page 143, and couldnt seems to find any information on Hitachi. Anyone know if Hitachi is any good?
I am actually looking for a System 3 and have shortlisted to three brands:
MIT Heavy Industries
Had tried out the coolness at GC showroom but would like to know what the gurus at this thread think about the above brands? Was told Hitachi cool down a room fastest among the brand, true? When compared to Toshiba, Hitachi does feel colder at the showroom but then I realized the temperature on the remote was set to 16C. Does the temperature during the testing matter?
As there will be heavy usage for one of three bedrooms, was told I could go for 2 units x 9,000Btu and 1 unit x 12,000Btu. Am also told the HDB district that I lived, the max allowed was up to 22,000Btu only. Hence, no point getting anything more than 22,000Btu, true?
My existing unit is a Fujiair and had been hving problems with it for ages like the PCB not working and leaking issues for the unit under heavy usage. For the new installation, will there be a need to upgrade the insulation?
I am considering the three brands coz Hitachi is a trusted home appliances brand?, Toshiba's compressor is Japan made and MIT HI seems like a more cost effective alternative than the popular brands like MIT Electric, Panasonic and Daikin.
Dunno how true but the guy who came to clean it said air con that is so old no point repairing if more than $100 'cos at that age, everything will start spoiling one after another so might as well buy new air con.
I am renovating my resale flat. It comes with a daikin non-inverter sys3. age - unknown. The aircon contractor inspected and say that it's still fine to carry on using. I would like to add a new FCU maybe 18k btu to the living room. more cost effective to re-run all the worn out pipes + a new FCU or change the entire unit to a sys 4, inverter/non-inverter? I recon the cost will be doubled for a new system 4?
Seriously need some help with the airconditioning matter here.
Getting a new place, 4 room flat. Looking at Sys 3 + 1.
Not exactly sure about the BTU allocation? How does this work?
I have been reading some replies on this thread. Is it recommended to get the aircons from big shops like Courts, Harvey Norman, Best Denki etc OR the specialized ones mentioned here like Hong Tar, CoolServe, Natural Cool (Buy&Fix)?
Heard that most important is to find a good team to install the aircons else will create many problems afterwards.
And also, I saw some posts on MIT Heavy Industries, MIT Starmex - are they all from Mitsubishi? What's the difference?
If its a 4rm flat.
Usually all 3 bedroom uses 9k but. Living is 18k.
MIT Electric n Mit Hvy Ind are 2 different brands.
MIT Electric Is together with their fridge, electric fans, etc.
MIT hvy ind is brought into Sg by an auth agent.
G24 is thinner then G23, chanes of gas leak, condensation is higher.
Water flowing to drainage pipe is normal.
Condensation is like u take a cup of cold water out from the fridge n leave it on e table. Hot and cold air mix together.
Bought Panasonic system 3 non-inverter from Gaincity almost 2 years liao.. bundled with 3 years half-yearly servicing.. so far so good. Price was around $2,100 that time. Total BTU is 18,000. Energy consumption is 2 ticks.
Recently installed a new Samsung system 1 inverter unit for living room from Courts. Costs me $1,700 with 5yrs extended warranty. BTU is 20,000. Can cool my 5-rm living room to 25 degree in less than an hour. Energy consumption is 4 ticks.
So in summary, total damage for 4 Aircon units and 2 compressor is close to 4K.
