High humidity is characterised by sweat staying on the skin. Becos the air is saturated with water, sweat cannot evaporate off the skin. This is basically what we feel in singapore after the rain stops and the sun comes out. You sweat but it doesn't evaporate.

It is perhaps easier for us singaporean to distinguish how mid humidity feels like, which is basically how you feel in most (properly sized) airconed locations.

So if the humidity is not reduce enough, basically you feel cool, but the sweat stays on your body. That's akin to the feeling of night time after a downpour.

Isnt it very dangerous like that? It's like what the elderly always say long term will kana Hon sip

Is there any place that I can buy 1 unit of Starmex wall unit?

Need 1 for replacement.

Current unit, the air coming out like as if it is choked and chemical wash didn't help as comes back after a few months.

Mitsubishi Starmex dont get it wrong with MHI (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries)..
Daikin last time very expensive so nobody recommended.. now the price quite ok...
Daikin only make aircond product so they are the best... my home install Daikin... very good...

Do they do the a proper cleaning? bring down the whole unit ( metal coil, body, drain tray, blower and pcboard ) and wash the metal coil with chemical... sure can last very long... From REDCON AIR

My friend installed Daikin system 3 for 3k from Proshop Alexandra in June and so far no complaint. I missed the boat for the 3 yr warranty. We also checked GC at next door but their upgrade materials had to pay extra, unlike Proshop which included everything

my 2 years old starmex died on me two days ago. i suspect the fcu is gone case or the compressor is not doing as supposed. also i saw sweating on my trunking.

if call starmex. minimum 150+30 just for inspection..

U didnt take extended warranty? GC giving unlimited extended warranty but got to pay for peace of mind for 5yrs. Worth it?

Yup! They did, they even chemical wash 3 times but still dirty. Tat why thinking of replace the unit.

Maybe do 1 more round of chemical wash then decide.
