hi guys, need your help to access if this deal and the package is sufficient...

Currently second room hack away and combine with masterbed room...
I intend to install 2 x compressor as i want it to be cold... still thinking to have living room as 1 x standalone, than the masterbed room and guest room to share 1 compressor or the other way round...

there's 2 option with different BTU....

option 1 (Grand total : $5600)
- mitsubishi electric (Is it starmax? or MHI?)
- Model Muy24va Msyge24va
- Total $2400

- mitsubishi electric
- Model Mxy 4a28
- Msyge24va x01
- Msyge13va x01
- Total 3200

Option 2 (Grand total $5600)
- mitsubishi electric
- Model Muy24va Msyge24va
- Total $2400

- Mitsubish electric
- Model Mxy 4a38
- Msyge24va x01
- Msyge13va x 01
- Total $4000

Both package comes with
- Armaflex class o
- Keystone cable
- 22swg copper pipe
- 16mm drainage pipe

I am sliding towards option 1, but afraid that the compressor will not be able to provide the coldness as compressor is only 28000BTU (Needs to support 24k BTU and 13k BTU units)

Oh ya, the pricing got kena carrot or not ah???
Any expert can advise me on the following things?

Sorry for posting so many questions....


How big is your living and bedrooms? Normally nowadays bedroom 9k btu is enough. 12k btu if your room is bigger.

Anyway for the Armaflex insulation I am told by my vendor that the difference between them is just the fire rating. not much difference actually. something like class 1 is fireproof for 1 hour, class 0 is fireproof for 2 hours.

However for class 0 there's a lot of parallel imports, so we might not get the real quality goods. For class 1 there is only 1 kind.

Therefore I'd agree and go for class 1 as well.. since its cheaper. Those that do class 0 are just "upselling" unnecessary stuff i guess.

I think it's a bit ex, but it depends on what type of fcu they give you. Uniqool is offering it at $3688 for system 4 2-ticks

Does Lazada provide installation?

No prob. For your price I'm not so sure and couldnt advise because it is totally different from my option.

I got Mitsubishi starmex from Uniqool. Its system 4 - 2 ticks, 9k Btu x3 and 24k btu for $4088

You can try finding their Facebook page and contact them for a quote? hope it helps!

I actually know that. But it depends on individual. For me I dont think I'll on all 4 at the same time. It is also cheaper than buying 2x system 2. Therefore i chose this option

For Single split, should I go for inverter or non inverter? Price difference is $200.

MHI System 2 with CoolServe

My installation with CoolServe was completed yesterday. A short recap:

1) Installation:
- Installer came on time (was scheduled 2-3pm and they arrive at 2pm sharp)
- Both of them are quite young (in their mid-twenties to thirties maybe?)
- They were polite and efficient as well as accomadating.
- They seem experience as both knew what needs to done and did them independently, e.g. 1 was fixing up the trunking while the other work on removing the old bracket.
- They clean up and remove the old air-con, sweep the floor and kept a clean working environment. This happen regularly throughout each small milestone of the installation.
- They also putty up the wall afterwards. e.g. the holes left by the old bracket, the discoloured wall left by the old trunking (cos the new trunking is slightly smaller).
- Afterwards, the guy briefly ran through the basic operation of the air-con with the remote
- Area was cleared of debris. Still dusty but definitely nothing to complain about.
- Total time taken was about 3-4 hours.

2) MHI System 2
- Compressor is quiet.
- Air-con is cold (no complain from my parents after using it last night although it started raining later in the night). Anyway, time will tell.
- The ability to direct the flow of the air from left to right (not just up and down) is useful as the blower is mounted at a corner of the room

Minor complain:
- The insulation for the outside pipe was slightly torn. According to them, it got caught on some sharp edges when they push it through the wall.
I brought this up to Coolserve and they will be arranging for someone to come down next week to wrap up the affected insulation with some insulation tape.
- Both blowers seems to be tilted but the installer says it is level. I don't have any equipment to check so will wait until next week for them to come down and check again.

Also, the invoice and warranty card will only be mailed to me when my cheque clear... not sure if this is the market practice.

Overall, I am satisfied with Coolserve apart from the 2 points above.

Update:
- They use a pipe-bender to bend the pipe.
- Just found out they use Sigma instead of Keystone cable.

Have escalated this to CoolServe.

Confirmed cabling included. I went with my friend last month and sales say cable not included. But when their men went to site visit, they say cabling included and today they just installed. All inclusive is $3k

Yes. They took abt 2 weeks to mail out the warranty card. Mine is ME so i can register warranty online within 14 days without waiting for their receipt.
So, did you manage to confirm all parts they installed is as said brand?
Trucking and drainage pipe i dont know how to vertify but lucky this components not important. Still angry with the brand they choose for my copper pipe. 😡😡😡

Frankly, I don't really know how to check...

Trunking I don't really care as I believe it will not impact performance.

The pipe is about the same size as those I saw in showroom when they show me their 16mm pipe.

The insulation are Armaflex Class-1 and has a "H" so I take it to mean it is 1/2" thickness.

The copper pipe inside I can't really tell as the wordings are too small and I have "lao-hua".

I forgot to check the power cable and just did a check on what I can see.. i.e. the little portion connected to the plug head that is plug to the wall socket. It is Sigma.

I have highlighted the last issue to CoolServe and is awaiting their reply.

Sigh... guess I should have being more vigilant during the install.
