Any recommendations for a System 2 inverter? Previous owner of my flat had installed a System 3 to serve the 3 bedrooms, so now I want to install one more System 2 to cover the living hall (pending HDB approval). Thinking of maybe one ~9k BTU and one ~18k BTU.

Any suggestions on brands and installation companies? Thanks!
I will prefer Daikin :)

Hi guys i bit the bullet and got a Panasonic Inverter System 3.

Total spent $3788

I think this is on the high side.
Breakdown:

$3039 for 2x 9K BTU and 1x 12K BTU blower.
$99 Extended Warranty
$150 Steel Bracket
$180 Upgrade to 1/2 insulation and 23 to 22 Copper piping.
$320 installation of 15AMP Socket and Testing.

I think the warranty and Upgrade could have been waived off on any given day. And the 15AMP socket is too expensive. I planned to spend $3.4 and ended up with $3.8. What do you guys think?

Looking to purchase a Daikin system 3 for a 30-40 years 4 room flat. Is there a need for me to cough up extra for the larger capacity 3MKS71ESG box instead of the 3MKS50ESG version?

Should I also get the upgraded 1/2" 1 ARMAFLEX and G22 piping?

Lastly do I need a 15AMP power point or to replace my current system 3 steel bracket?

Usage varies minimally. 2 aircons will mostly be on every night (12-14hrs) while the third very rarely.

To Derkaiser94,
If u seldom use all 3 @ the same time, 3mks50 should be enough.

To Jazz15RS,
I will prefer Starmex.

Hi Terumo,

Thanks,

I am looking at the following specs, do you have any advices how much am I expecting? Those big stores typically sells at a range between 4k to 5k.

Want to know if I am able to get cheaper with cash payment though.

MISTUBISHI STARMEX SYS 4
MXY4A28VA
MSYGE10VAX x 3
MSYGE24 x 1

Am I able to get this at around 3.8k or lower at those shops?

Hello Envyme,

It really depends on your usage trends and room size.

By the rule of the thumb, the larger the room size the larger the BTU required to cool down the room (9K,12k,18K etc)
Other factors include morning/afternoon sun, design factors.

The size of the room aside, supposedly with the outdoor unit at total 27K~28K BTU, if you need to turn on all 3x9K at 1 go it can support.

However if your matching is something along the line of 27~28k BTU for outdoor unit and you have matched 1x12K and 2x9K indoor units then turning on all 3 units might affect the cooling efficiency. But if you only use 2 units at 1 time, say 1x12K + 1x9K = 21K or 2x9K = 18K then supposedly no issue to support.

Best person to advise will be your appointed installer.
Give them your room size and also tell them your usage trends during your purchase they will be able to better advise.

Best Regards,

Jason Tham

So if the outdoor unit has a lower BTU than the combined BTU of the indoor systems, would it still be able to support them when they are turned on together? Are there gonna be any potential future damage due to the extra stress on the smaller outdoor unit?

If that is the case why is Daikin offering an outdoor 18k BTU (3MKS50ESG) unit for its system 3 package? I had a look around and they are the only company doing this it seems. Rest of the competitors are all using at least a 26-28k BTU outdoor unit. :s11:

a sales guy told me that even if the condenser is 27k, and you have 3 blowers that are for example 9k + 9k + 12k=30k, once the rooms are sufficiently cool, the blower wont be blowing at the maximum 9k hence 27k condenser is enough. Is this true? Just that the rooms will take a bit longer to cool if on all 3 at once

To crankcase,

How big is ur living room?

Living area is divided into 2 portions:

1. 3.5m X 3.6m = 12.6 sqm = 135 sqft.
I want to put a 9k BTU unit here, which is likely to be used periodically (weekends etc)

2. 4.6m X 5.6m = 25.76 sqm = 277 sqft.
I want to put a 16-18k BTU unit here, which is likely to be used infrequently (in case of gatherings etc)

Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions!

This area requires ard 9k btu.

This area requires a 12k/18k btu.

U can do with 2 fancoil or 1 x 18k/24k fancoil will do too.

To Tomelankholy,

For 9 + 9 + 12, if u on all 3 units @ the same time, all fcu will perform like a 9k btu fcu.

Depending on your room size, it might take longer to cool down, if you on all @ the same time.

9k btu can cool down ard 15-18 sqm.
12k btu can cool down ard 20-24sqm.
