Currently, there are only 2 models that I could find in the market.
1) EuropAce EAC-392 - $880 (Courts)
2) Trends A003A-09 - $588 (Fairprice Xtra)
Is there any other new casement aircon models that are available in the market?
From NEA energy consumption website, Trends uses slightly more energy than EuropAce. I noted that there is quite a number of people selling off Trends aircon, but I couldn't find the reasons or review on this aircon.
Is it better to buy Trends aircon, as it is cheaper than EuropAce by $200+?
Get mainstream model such as mit starmex or daikin. Cfm will last. My daikin lasted for 9 years before i get it replaced to it looks really old and eye sore and mainboard burnt i guess due to old age, starmex coming to 6 year...so far yet to breakdown. Really heavyduty.
so mitsubish and daikin are the 2 brands to go to since they are durable, quiet and saving electric bills?
looking to install one so trying to decide between mitsubishi, panasonic or daikin....advices and comments..
Need some advice from the experts here.
I have a corridor facing room in an old 3 room HDB that I would like to aircondition. However, I'm trying to avoid affecting the other room (means penetrating the walls to install the split unit is a problem) and it is against HDB regulations to install casement or window units on windows facing the common corridor.
Portable unit seemed to be the only way, but it is energy hungry and noisy (I expect to run it long hours), and I'll still need to purge the exhaust out the window as well as change the window from the current glass and aluminum window panes to something more airtight.
However, I'm thinking if I can mount a casement unit by putting up a small partition before the window and mounting the casement inside the room, venting it into the space between the window and the partition?
The partition can be partly glass and hinged so I can still access the window. The plus side is, I reduce the amount of space that I need to aircondition (I don't need the entire room's space anyway), and I'm not doing anything to the existing windows and the other room.
Thanks for the quick reply. You are right...ideally I would prefer that too since I can use an inverter as well rather than casement. I would also be able to retain full use of the room, including the built-in wardrobe.
However, I'll then need to change all the windows along the corridor (including the hall's), as well as convince my mum to let me drill and run trunking through her room.
She couldn't care less about having her own air-con, so that's not a bargaining chip either
I suppose my problem isn't a technical one after all. haha
