How nice if those who are looking at installing new aircon and combine their interest here then ask for quote. Maybe can have more bargain power.

I am interested installing new aircon plus newbie here

Can share which dealer and how much $ you're quoted?

Sent from LGE LG-D855 using GAGT

I got it from CoolServe for about $2,4xx.
Details of what I got is listed below in my earlier post.

Finally took the plunge and place order with Coolserve for a MHI system 2.
Installation will be on 9th June. Will see how it goes.

Wanted to go for 9000BTU as both the rooms are about 150 square feet each. But according to Coolserve, the distributor of MHI has no stock of 9000BTU hence the current promo for free upgrade to 12000BTU.
Also upgraded the insulation to 1/2" armaflex class-1 but kept the copper pipe at 23 SWG due to budget constraint.

Generally their price is on the higher side, only Gain City is more expensive than them. But their optional like bracket and insulation/copper pipe upgrade is more expensive than Gain City.
So overall, Coolserve and GC's prices are about the same.

Decided to go with CoolServe as my friend uses them and said good things.
Will see how the installation goes. Hopefully I made the right choice.
*fingers crossed*

Air-connection came and survey my house and got a new quotation from them. The new quotation for Daikin system 2 (9000+12000) with additional piping @ $2400. Originally they quote me @ $2150 (9000 x 2) with standard piping length. Now waiting for Cold Engine to survey my house and its quotation. Will update here again soon...

Very excited :)), going down tomorrow to Fortuna (Daikin) to place order for system 4. Survey site been done, jus drop down to select the model and installation date.
steel bracket need to change even old one exist. standard $150 for new steel bracket, can waive off $50 for site survey charged.

They propose 4MSK80FSG for compressor , Living hall 1x FTKS71FVM , 3 bedrooms x FTKS25DVM (NOT silver Envi type). sales girl anna quote me through phone was about $48xx.
Yet to checkout tomorrow .

For compressor model there is EFG and FSG , btw which is better ? or is it new model for FSG ?

FSG is new model but less btu than older model.
Can help ask them is 5MSK100 has many feedback of easy breakdown? Ask them why not recommend 5MKS100?
Cos i see if you choose 80FSG, the power might not enough to support 4 room ON at same time.
I almost get this for my 4 rm too, but the max power is 27k btu plus dont know if Daikin got ampere limit issue, so i choose ME 4A38VA for their 32k btu and their ampere limit function can be easily switch off. Furthermore, 4A38VA got "Made in Japan" chop. Price same for both.
I will choose Daikin if 5MKS100 has no complain and they got no ampere limit issue.


Mine is 5rm flat, is system4 enough for living ? she advice me on living have to off 3 rm aircon, or on 3 rm have to off living, both either not much of concern.
so you mean i can get 5MSK100 for price $48xx ??:s12:

No. I mean mitsubishi ELectric has a model call 4A38VA which is a more powerful compressor and is wholly made in Japan can be bought at the same price as your Daikin 4MKS80FSG. Remember, Daikin is made in China.
I also mean if you insist on Daikin and if you usually On all indoor units at same time, then, might as well take 5MKS100. This unit is even more powerful than ME 4A38VA.

like now i am shopping for another aircon for my mum house which is old type 5rm HDB. But she intend to fix system 3 for bedrooms only. Then, i think Daikin MKS80 is good esp with 3 yr warranty and a prestige brand. But, thinking that Daikin is made in China make me think of going back and get ME 4A38VA.
Base on brand alone actually i prefer Daikin over ME. But i scare if choose Daikin, next time compressor give problem, i got to blame myself. Cos, people already tell you its made in china why still go choose it. At least if its made in japan and it give problem, i wont blame myself cos i already field from the best country.

Daikin is Made in Thailand for both blower and compressor. Only Toshiba has MIJ aircon in SG.

Daikin newer model for indoor unit made in Czech Republic.
Out of top 3 most recommended brand by aircon company: DK, ME and Panasonic. None are made in Japan now except ME 4A38VA. Their new model ME 4G38VA which country anybody know?

Tomorrow you go Daikin showroom right?
You go see their compressor got label "Made in Japan" or not? Then, you come back and talk. Everything is abt black and white. "You say this, he say that, but who confirm?"
They dont even dare to label their products as "Design in Japan". What do you think?
