Hello TimCooked,

During sourcing for recon fancoil, if possible best to get back the same model due to compatibility issues. If would be good if the fancoil is chemically cleaned before use.

If you need to get a new System 3 then yes do consider to have your pipings/insualtion changed to prevent future headaches. Existing pipings are already 13 years of age. Chances are they might not hold up throughout the lifespan of your new unit.

Good Luck on your search and Hope you have this resolved soonest.

Best Regards,

Jason Tham


Thanks maxicoolservices,for your thorough reply.

Yes, my fan coil has corroded to the point beyond chemical cleaning.

I guess I will have to source for a recon fan coil first. If unavailable, then I would probably shop for a System 3 (yes my condenser serves 3 bedrooms). Bearing in mind that I will have to replace piping as well...this is my worst nightmare come true.

For Daikin air con u can just change a new fan coil unit . Coz u ard $500 for the new fan coil unit .

Hi Mrairc, this is news.
My aircon model is FTK35JVE 9.
Please confirm if I can just replace with a new fan coil, at $500.
If so, I think this could be a better option than changing all 3 fan coils and compressor.

Once again, thank you so much, Jason, for the good advice.
I have replaced the pipes for this current fan coil due to a previous gas leak due to pipe age. So if what Mrairc suggest is possible, replacing just a fan coil could be the most optimal solution.

Hello TimCooked,

Good to know that the pipings are reusable.
Yes indeed if a new fancoil is available for your model then replacing with a new fancoil would be the most cost saving. :)
Good Luck.

Best Regards,

Jason Tham

In any case, Jason, how much should I pay for changing of pipes for the other 2 aircon units, in addition to the System 3 itself?

Between $200-$300, depends on which model no.

the guy from aircon designs is recommending us to get system 3 mitsubishi heavy r410a gas 9k btux2 and 12kx1...about $300 difference with daikin system 3 for almost the same specs...is it worth the savings?

he also mentioned that since both brands will last me 5-7 years, so better get mitsubishi heavy (cheaper)...also both made in thailand...

any inputs?

For your reference :/-

Mitsubishi
Heating as well as cooling office and commercial environments, easier to clean. Electricity saving and dead silent. Compressor made in Thailand.

Toshiba
Less energy consumption, compressor made in Japan.


Or maybe you can consider to get quote for Panasonic.:)
