Just checked with another supplier . He mentioned that Toshiba is good but its design is not suitable for Singapore. Reason being the cooling fins are dense and accumulate dust much faster and can cause choke to drainage if not maintained regularly . Need to visit and validate.

How much is the another supplier selling.

To thelastname,

Around $3k for system 3 is a reasonable price.

To precise,

Toshiba's compressors being made in Japan is true which are of good quality.

For the fins, actually most of the brands' fins are dense now.

Hi Terumo

Pl may i get your advice on cooling 5-rm bto (living room, study, 2 bedroom, masterbed room)? I'm looking at MItsubishi Electric and the few shops i spoke to have different advice on the set up:

Advice 1
MXY4A28VA + 4 x MSYGE10VA (study, 2 bedrooms and masterbed room)
MUYGE24VA + MSGE24VA (Living Room)

Advice 2
MXY4A28VA + 3 x MSYGE10VA (study & 2 bedrooms) + 1 x MSYGE24VA (living room)
MUYGE13VA + MSYGE13VA (master bedroom)

Is it better to use the Single split for living or masterbed room? Masterbed room should take 9000 or 12000 btu? Thank you.

Hi, I just got the Starmex system 3 installed at my place last week. I think I have gotten a nice deal from Best Tech $2799 only with installation and gst. The salesman was very helpful to explain all details and he even came personally to my place for a discussion, am quite surprised he did. Was comparing between Toshiba and Mitsubishi because it was 50 bucks cheaper but gave in to Starmex becos easy to maintain. Also was given some light vouchers and furniture voucher! Am going for shopping for my lights too.

What insulation and copper pipe used?

The salesman told me he upgraded free insulation to Yamato insulation from Japan(white in color, different from black one and it comes in a bag of 45metre) and 23swg copper pipe. My hubby asked why the insulation so long and the salesman say it reduce condensation and then he also ask why it is not 22swg and he explained that they might tell u they use 22 but when they install time they will bring 23 or 24 one to cut cost which makes sense becos my hubby went to see my neighbour installation last week by some contractor so he kaypoh go and ask what pipe they using and they say 22 but then no packing one lei... only got marker write 22swg.. so hubby say better use reputable company for a/c, dun want to suffer leaking problem next time. Salesman was quite sincere and honest though.

To duracellb,

Living room can take 22/24k btu.
The unit that you use the most often can setup as a single system.
Or different rooms that you use often to one compressor, depending on your usage.
