Fujitsu I guess worst that midea Aircon.
But my flat resale that pre-owner also installed system 2 Fujitsu non-inverter, end out never bother and changed away to Mit Starmex :)

Last time my unit, the remote can't function at all, after use the FCU press on start manually.

Also sometime on the blower cashing can easily blow out chip-off smaller pieces of cashing material just a debris.

Wow. Midea to me already the worst aircon system.. Fujitsu even more worst. Then in future i will tell all my family and friend leave out this 2 brands thanks for the advice..

Deciding to go for the panasonic inverter over the mitsubishi.
The guy said both just as good and the panasonic have the negative ion.
He said panasonic is slightly cheaper cos they spend less on marketing.

I'm deciding whether to go for a 4 system 1 compressor set up or (2 system 2 compressor) x 2 set up.
The house is 2 bedroom 950sqft. It has existing aircon unit in each bedroom and 2 units in the living/dining area. Personally, I think 1 aircon unit in the living/dining area is enough. But the guy told me I should follow the old configuration better because of the conceal piping. So I'll leave the piping and change the aircon only.

The 4 system 1 compressor
$3,500 (+ extended warranty)

The (2 system 2 compressor) X 2
$4,300 (+ extended warranty)

I only scared the 4 system 1 compressor might not be enough.. Or am I over thinking?

Sorry if I'm not clear about the specs.. first time buying aircon :o

The house is 2 bedroom 950sqft so total area is 88 square meter including living room ?

If you are not going to on all the unit at 1 time, 4 system 1 compressor would be more than sufficient.

But you are not changing the pipeline ? I think at least do a flashing of the pipeline would be better.

Yea. 88sqm includes living area and closed kitchen.
The existing pipeline is abt 10 years. He told me pipes usually last about 20 years so no need to change. Plus if I change pipeline, it costs abt 2k :eek:

Pipeline, maybe can asked them to do a flashing.

Not really sure about other place u buy but GC pipeline need to be changed if not, the warranty is not cover.

im torn between panasonic sys 4 and mitsubishi starmex...the panansonic sys 4 comes at 3600 (plus 200 ntuc voucher). 22 piping, and 1/2inch insulation, 16mm pipes. best price ive seen after searching up..starmex comes to about 3850

im just wondering if starmex is just all advertisement. if panasonic is equally good in quality then no point going mainstream

400 dollars )with the ntuc vouhcers is substantially cheaper...and from what i hear panasonic is as good as mitsu (from 3/4 aircon fellows ive talked to who say mitsu is just marketed mroe)

you mean mitsu is so much better in energy savings?

Don't just choose based on price. Must see the energy consumption (annual) statistics.

I also considered Panasonic and M.E, but eventually chose M.E due to lower energy costs.

Buying price is just the initial setup cost. Running cost is the long term thing that saves $.

To Grizz.P,

How is ur usage going to be?

Planning to do 12k/9k/9k/9k
12k for the master bedroom which will be used every night.
The 2 9k units in the living/dining will be seldom used. Probably only when there are guests.
I think it will make more sense to just get the system 4 and 1 compressor. Worst case scenario is that it'll just take a little longer to cool up the whole house.

My other delimma is if I should retain the old piping (10 years old) that's running on r22 or shell out 2k to change to r410a (conceal piping)..

To Grizz.P

Ya very sure, gas can be clog on chemical to made the compressor running slow or turn noise.

Flashing is the good idea, but flashing maybe have extra charges.

Also R22 gas pipeline should not know how thick of the guage grade copper they used on existing.

Against wiring can take for inverter DC input and last up or not.

Change new pipeline was less an issue.
