U didnt check the term and condition with them before buying? I advice u ask them about this😁

The SA never mentioned about this and he told me if you are not a heavy user, then first year no need for servicing is still covered under warranty.

Between my sister also got her at GC using Mit StarMex. Already 1 year with no issue, she told me very quiet and cooling.

Good to hear that.. That happened to them after 2year plus.. When the aircon started to create noise..but warranty not covered.. Anyway they already got 3rd party to check but still the same now when the noise came they just need to knock the fancoil hard a few times and the noise gone.. Maybe it depend on luck.. Anyway good luck..

To me personally, for aircon definitely need warranty covered and cannot be too cheap.. For me only either LG or Mitsubishi for aircon. But also depend on luck..

Choose wisely. Aircon replacement is a messy job. Dont be penny wise pound foolish.

The compressor is Mitsubishi but the rest of the condenser and fancoil is not.. Some SA even worst can say that EuropAce is exact same as Mitsubishi starmex just the logo changed to local brand EuropAce..

As what the SA at Court told me as long as it's not China made, it's ok but then the SA at BigBox told me different thing.

They also recommend Midea Aircon to me which is a China brand.

Anyone heard of/used Pure Air or Tim Wong (Imperial Distributors)? Reliable?

After reading up in forums, the common advise is that worksmanship is primary, aircon brand is secondary.

Even if one purchases the best and most expensive aircon, if installation never do properly... user bears the consequences.

Inverter Air Con is more easily to spoil as compared to non Inverter Air Con but electricity saving is more.

Any other retailers to recommend other than GC ? Seems like some people had bad experience with GC.

Think the others are not so aggressive when it comes to marketing.

I think it's all by luck. If you get a good installer, then you are rewarded.
