need some advice.
My aircon (Pana CS-C9EKZW, Sys 3, abt 6.5yrs) not cold, blow out normal air. Tech guy came to check and told my mum, "heart" spoilt and need to replace. I am assuming is the compressor, was quoted about 600+ and only 3mth warranty.
This aircon system seems to have many prob for past few yrs e.g gas leak, water leak etc, suspect got to do with past tenants who turn to 18 deg/open window while aircon is on.
Should I get a new aircon system or just replace the compressor. Any recommendation on where to buy a new aircon system?
We are renovating a resale (10 year old) condo. There are no aircons in the living and dining area currently. Three bed rooms and study have one each. Total area of apartment is 1600 sq ft.
For providing for aircon in living and dining area, different contractors are advising differently:
a) "Big name" retail chain - need to hack the floor in living room to route the water drainage pipe. There are no alternatives.
b) Contractor A - same as above. Hence his recommendation is a single 24000 unit in living and dining (the living and dining area are not in a single rectangle - they are shaped in a kind of bent L shape - about 220 degrees internally) with the unit near one of the bathrooms so that water drain pipes can be laid (without hacking floor but hacking wall).
c) Contractor B - he recommends two units of 18K and 9K for living and dining; he says he can lay pipes only by hacking wall without hacking floor.
Confused on what to do! I dont want to hack floor as there is no plan to replace the marble in the floor.
usage is very low for the 6yrs. Only on during the hot mths (jun-jul, night time). Except the bad tenants experience, think they on most of the time, probably lasted for few mths before we found out and we chased them out.
I have another system 2 (jambo flat), bought same time, same low usage, but no bad tenants experience, still running well.
Thinking of getting ME sys3 non invertor because of the low usage. What is your suggest? Or just change the compressor?
Technically, anything is possible to repair.
Just that whether its worth it or not.
You may wish to replace the compressor, see can use another 1-2 years...
Then replace the whole system when it breakdowns again.
My air con is leaking water but i am told by the service company it is due to broken parts. The pipe or something use to collect water on the unit itself, somewhere near the rotating fan swing is broken. I would like to know the cost of replacement would be around what price? Sorry i do not know the actual term use to describe the broken part. Brand of aircon is panasonic C/S-C9EKZW.
I need to replace my system 2 (bedroom & hall) and is thinking of pairing a Daikin 20,000 btu outdoor unit (2MKD58DVM) with 2 x 12,000 btu FCUs (FTKD35DVM) since at almost all times, only 1 FCU is on. With this configuration, how would the cooling power be distributed between the 2 FCUs on those rare occasions where I on both FCUs?
Would you recommend this set-up or the conventional configuration of the 2 FCUs adding up to exactly match a 20,000 btu outdoor unit?
All brand of air-conditioning systems nowadays are just abt the same.... Their lifespan are abt 5-7 years... regular maintenance is really important to know ur air con unit's performance and electrical consumption.
Personally, i've been using Mitsubishi Electric for 7 years plus... everything seem ok....
