Any reviews or experience with Europace aircons? A promoter in best denki gave a very good promo for Europace but I'm not sure if the brand is trustable

most importantly, is the workmanship. warranty are all with manufacturer, i.e. Mitsubishi...

in this instance, cheap doesn't mean no good...

and btw.. i got the above u quoted at a lower price... with higher BTU too... this guy i trust him cos we knew him for very long already
hi bro, u using gain city or other company?

I ask for quote for 9k x 2, 13k & 24k config directly and I was quote $3850 for 1 trip installation, top up another $50 for 2 trips installation.
Hi. Where u get this quote from?
* I saw from cold engine?


FIL asked some guy and he quoted
Mxy-4a28va $4180
3 x 9k + 24k

Also quote Panasonic cu-4s27nkz at $3700
3 x 9k + 18k

Coz of build in trucking to wardrobe, using back old piping etc. So can be cheaper?
Any input bros?

Hi Bros,

Able to check if there's any motherboard issue with Mitsubishi Electric models?

Was advised by a promoter today that they sent back all the stocks and next batch is in June.

Looking to get either Mitsubishi/LG/Daikin probably by this month if possible to replace my current 11yr old LG Sys 3, I Guess everything must be changed right?

For 3BR including MBR, looking at the normal 3x9K BTU config, should be sufficient I Guess?

So far I only approached Gain City & Best Denki for pricing thus far.

For ME it comes only with 1yr fancoil warranty, do you all usually opt for extended warranty? 1yr is abit short for warranty coverage. Iirc Daikin is also 1yr for the fancoil.

Hope to hear more from you guys before I commit my purchase.

Best to get the air-con guys to check your existing piping on site to determine if it's ok to not rerun .

Daikin is running a extended warranty promo on fancoil for purchases installed before end of June

Use back old piping is a big mistake, choked piping is the number 1 reason for aircon leaks.

Just ask Cold engine for quote, much cheaper than what you got.

I have never encounter fancoil spoil before aircon leak or compressor spoil so would not get extended warranty for fancoils.

Thanks bro.
Guess will call cold engine for quote.
Re-run new pipe thru existing wardrobe doesn't seem workable for me as will need to tear down the entire thing.
Probably get them to check piping as advise by some bro here

9k x 3 is sufficient for bedrooms.
Daikin now has extended warranty for the equipment.

is there a Aircon installer whom I can engage to test whether my AC piping is leaking?

I would like to reuse the pipe for a new install.

Hi experts (seeming @terumo haha),

I understand that my bedrooms are good with 9k BTU units, but what about my living room+dining+open kitchen - the only door is at the service yard entrance.

The total of my living + dining +kitchen is 517 sq ft (if I've calculated correctly) so can I use a 18k BTU unit or is 24K more appropriate?

I'm prolly gonna be having 2 wall mounted fans as well..

Cheers!

24k btu is just just nice.

If you wish to cool down faster, can get 18k + 12k instead.
