As above... looking into air conditioning 3 bedrooms and the living room.. my contractor quoted me $3.7k for a 4:1(2 compressors inside) toshiba system with inverter.

is it expensive?

any lobang/recommendations?

is daikin or mitsubishi better?

Toshiba is a food brand, the onlt model which comroessor is rorin Japan, however, blwoer is from Thialanfd'

Pros of Comdenser unit last you donkey years.
Fac-coil, always have a regular issue of the sensor not working. cost about 120 to replace.

Dun mind can give me a breakdown of the job scope aso i can ask me fren whats the correct charges for that? and what kind of combination are you looking at?

Andy

3years warranty? T&C serving done redulary by their team and you must buy their service contract if im not wrong. Have you goodled on the complaints of the company? There are some cheao ones,,, But my mindsed is when it comes to installation,if its a small comopany, it is worth spending 2-33$ Cheaper?

For 1 room, there are 3 ways of installing an aircon.


1. Window aircon ( Square little box at the bottom of the room ) - Provided your room has that.

2. Casement aircon ( vertical units sitting on the window )

** To both the above, you cannot install this 2 if your room window is facing the corridor.

3. Single split wall mounted unit. ( Must have a space to put condenser units.[ Aircon Ledge/Bracket] and power point to install. )

If you already have a aircon condenser in place, you will need to check with HDB if you can install another aircon unit.


With regular servicing, an Aircon's lifespan is approx 8-10 years

Any recommendations for window Aircon?

When come to warranty please confirm what type of warranty can they provided. usually 5 yrs only cover compressor not PCB.and room FCU normally cover just 1yr.
come to installation usually after 1 yr they will not cover cable, leaking of drainage pipe and gas piping etc.
even everything covered but when problems surface the contractor will give reason and excuse to avoid the liability:s13:

Warranty on fancoil:

Manufarturing defect or product faiks to work within warranty. No including flap. Of they go and say ur aircon how long never service, show then the receipt to prove. If not have = dun have

Compressor warranty: 5 years

Condenser is the whole unit which has motherboard and such built in. Pcb dies, compressor running = no warranty.


Hope this clarifies ur doubt

Just install my ME SYS3 INVERTER. From Trend.. nice work. Hopefully theres no issue coz they run both pipe in 1/2inch armaflex.. are there any cons with this kind of installation coz my parent place runs single pipe in each armaflex.. i just realise once i saw the photos of my parents place

To herman8210,

Some companies practise running both pipes in one 1/2 insulation.
Should be ok.
Another better option is the discharge pipe in 3/8 and suction pipe in 1/2.
As condensation usually comes from suction pipes.

In a dilemma now - old Daikin System 3 outdoor unit got error H8, understand that it won't be worthwhile to repair as there are quite a number of possible reasons for this error.

The problem is that the old Daikin outdoor unit is only 790mm wide, and I can't seem to find any current models that can fit into this dimension. There's probably only an extra 5cm or so space on the aircon ledge.

Anyone knows of any suitable replacement R22 brand/model which is small in width?
