Nobody mention hitachi? My fren jus got his BTO, got a relative in hitachi and say can get good pricing. So to mention here that hitachi aint the best among Pana, ME and Tos?

HITACHI - Energy efficient are designed to reduce both purchasing and running costs wherever possible. Outdoor units can be supplied and installed at a fraction of the costs of conventional VRF air con units.

Btw, fewer people choose this brand as YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

I also curious about this? Can someone enlightened us about this?

Yes, electricity is running once compressor start even you switch on one AC unit. But Inverter will be better than non-Inverter..

Understood. Its not like everyday we buy hp/tablet and getting tons of reviews/costing. Thanks. I will take note. So far I choose my Tos cos my in-law Tos is still running fairly well for 12yrs at least. Most exp among ME, Pana. :D

The coolserve guy told me not true on this. Actually I realise it is not true as running the aircon at 20degree is different than running it at 30degree. That y gov recommend we run at 25 degree

Be a honest Man :)

I use my air con 6pm to next days 9 am ( high usage ? ) but I also didn't chemical cleaning my A/c every year ( done in every 3 year ) . if u keep chemical cleaning your A/c not more then 3-4 year you air con cooling coil were be corroded . I not a rich man son don't change my A/c every 5 year . Every 4-6 month serving is important .
all my cus also didnt chance this a/c every 5 year but they are rich man


No offence to any air con company in here

1. best, recommended panasonic
2. courts, recommended fujitsu and free 4 yrs warranty on installation

some recommendations are biased,especially coming out from those you are buying from. because those they recommend give them the highest margin.

i think i'm safe to say now the recommended inverted brands in sg are daikin and mitsubishi electric starmex. i'm using panasonic for about 4yrs+,only servicing once or twice...so i think panasonic is also ok.

workmanship is impt as well,they must use thicker piping for 401a refrigerant else any inverter brand u buy also spoil easily.

For your info, Panasonic & Mitsubishi will be the best.
But if compare between Fujitsu and Panasonic, prefer Panasonic.

their profit margin on Mitsubishi is pretty low which is why they do not recommend Mitsubishi. personally using mitsubishi starmex inverter, awesome aircon. using for 6 months plus no servicing was needed. You also need to get good installers who do a really good job with good materials. This will ensure aircon does not leak :)

thanks for the info...prefers panasonic due to:
- econavi function...wonders if it really helps to save power consumption and
- the air vending flips...single flip...cos used dakin b4 and the 2 flips got spoilt...

"thicker piping for 401a refrigerant" does it means 0.5" pipe? thk i saw something at best that it costs more for thicker pipes...

For your information, Best Denki & Courts almost have the same installer.
First, they will assign to contractor if there any installation and then contractor will pass it to sub-contractor as well.. or maybe there is a few contractor to pass yet. That's the reason installation charges increased. But not so sure for their reliability.
