Panasonic Sys 3 installation
thick 22swg piping
1/2 inch insulation
16mm pvc pipe
not include bracket
if daikin and mitsubishi electric add another around $100 can get it done...
1. not sure yet but i see my neighbours having 2 condenser already.
2. have enough for 2 condensers
3. to be frank, now no need..
4. for my current parents' house, i usually use 25 degC.
and thank you for replying
1. Still good to confirm with HDB on the number of power points. Two wrongs do not make one right.
2. If 2 power points is possible, I suggest to start with a single split. You can expend later, save more money at the mean time and there may be newer model when it is time to buy another one.
3. Installation is based on individual combination. Install 2 condenser now or 1 first another later is no different.
3. Get one that is 4 to 5 energy label ticks.
4. Air conditioner can be operated in conjunction with a fan to help you feel cooler. The air conditioner cools the room with cold air that is blown out from its FCU. The additional fan cools you further with dry moving air passing your skin causing evaporation as the dry air from the air conditioner removes heat from your body. Fan energy can be very low, as low as your light bulb. In short, if 25 degree is your comfort temperature, you can set it above 25 degree and yet feels the 25 degree when using an additional fan.
Hello A/C experts,
I'm a new home owner (BTO, 4 room) who is in need of some expertise in selecting an appropriate A/C system for my home. There are many pages in this thread which I would be really keen to read, but alongside that, I'm reaching out to you for some quick wisdom.
Our flat is somewhat typical of the new BTOs these days. It has only been completed recently this year. Our renovation is going to be pretty simple, and the two biggest modifications that we're going to make to the house are:
1. Hack wall between dining area & kitchen, replaced with island counter (open kitchen)
2. Hack wall between service yard & kitchen, replaced with sliding glass door with tracks
It's just going to be my wife and myself in the house for now. Our activities (that require air-conditioning) will center mostly around the bedroom closest to the MBR (full study room), MBR, followed by the TV area.
We are not big-time aircon users, and will only turn on the aircon during haze season or hot nights. I estimate conservatively that we will only use about 3 - 4 hours of aircon per day in mostly 1 room, to perhaps 3 rooms at most in the far, far future. There may occasionally be a need for strong cooling in the living room/dining area during times when we have guests.
I'm thinking of a System 4 from Mitsubishi Electric for its ease of self-maintenance. The diagram shows where I intend to place the compressor and blowers. I'm under the impression that such a layout would be make it easier and neater during servicing. Our bed in the MBR will be orientated in a direction opposite to that shown in the diagram.
Some questions for your recommendations.
1. Inverter or non-inverter for power savings, quiet operation, etc.?
2. Split 3 + 1 or a System 4?
3. High BTU or something more mid-range? Could you suggest a rough number?
4. I'm trying to avoid placing blowers on top of beds. Would there be a better placement for the MBR blower that would still make it easy to maintain?
5. Is there a particular set of compressor + blower models that you would recommend?
6. I would like a high grade of insulation and piping to minimise the chances of condensation and pipe leakage. What are some recommended models/gauges that I should look out for?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
1. if the powerpoint provided is only 1, i can ask my electrician to add another 1 too?
3. why do u suggest the 4-5 energy label ticks? thought 5 ticks would take longer to cool down the room compared to 2 ticks? i don't switch on for a significantly long time i think?
4. yeah i do use fan with aircon at my current house now at times.
right now i'm in a dilemma
it's either a 12000BTU panasonic system 1 or 9000BTU mitsubushi system 1. both cost me around 800ish, unless i can find a cheaper worksman that provide cheaper installation.
Most probably there wont be a case where all 3 is used at the same time.
Max use living room + 1 room at the same time.
Good to know whether 24k Btu is the appropriate size. Not good to over size the system.
More information on effect of over sizing an air conditioner:
The above are my opinion and hope that they are helpful.
1) Should be able
2) 9k btu will be fine.
