if you going for Panasonic make sure your window height allow the compressor to go through. Panasonic out door unit is bigger and taller.
Mitsubishi unit size is 1 of the smallest in local market that why some people go for it simply because they dont have much choices due to the window.

and they will get a pleasant surprise and be glad that they were "forced" to buy a better aircon :s13::s13: .... and felt ashame for making a wrong choice in the first place to have selected panny :s13:

Hi Air con gurus! I need some urgent help on the following.

I just bought an apt and I intend to replace my existing air con systems as they are 8 years old. The current set up consists of a System 3 (Master room 12k BTU, Guest room 9k BTU, Study room 9k BTU) and a System 2(Living and Dinning room 12k BTU each).

My air con usage is typically daily (Master, Study rooms) and occasionally (Living/Dining/Guest rooms).

I arranged for 2 site inspections but both technicians proposed different configurations:

(A) Follow existing configuration, ie. 3 rooms (System 3) and Living/Dining (System 2). This technician reasoned that this configuration saves on servicing as (given my usage style) I need only to service more frequently on the outdoor unit of System 3 than outdoor unit of System 2.

(B) System 3 (Living 12k, Guest 9k, Study 9k), System 2 (Dining 12k, Master 12k). This technician reasoned that this configuration enables both outdoor units are more evenly utilised, which is better in the long run.

I'm indifferent to both but what do you think? Do both explanations above make sense? Or is there an optimum configuration not stated above?

Thanks so much! :)

Hi! I have the same dilemma.

Proposed set-up is
26k = 18k (living) + 9k (bed)
26k = 18k (master) + 9k (bed)
26k = 18k (dining) + 9k (study) + 9k (utility)

But this means using 2 outdoor units in the day (living+dining) and at night (master + 2 bed).

not sure if it would be better to use
36k = 18k (living) + 18k (dining)
36k = 18k (master) + 9k (bed) +9k (bed)
18k = 9k (study) + 9k (utility)

so that only 1 outdoor unit will be used at one time.

We don't use everyday. Only when the nights are too hot to sleep. Even if I turn on will be 4~6hrs only. Usage: 60~90 days per year.

hi, sorry if discussed before, i tried to search this thread for the answer.


I would like to get a system 4 for 4 rooms, when in fact, I will most likely only use 2 rooms at a time.

When I look at the system 4. These are the specs

Mitsubishi MX4BD26 , it's 7k+7k+6k+6k BTU
Daikin MA56EV1, it's 6k+6k+4k+4k BTU

My question is , if i only use 2 units of a system 4 at a time, will the cooling power go u to say 12+12k for the Mitsubishi and 10k+10k for the Daikin? Or is the cooling power fixed at 4k BTU for example, no matter how many wall units on at a time?

thanks

in order to cool faster, the fcu must get around 9k btu from compressor.

for daikin ma56ev1, its btu is 20267. if all btu is 9k(ft25dvm), each fcu will get approximate 5066btu if all 4 fcu is switch on. so it might take a longer time compare to switch on 2 only.

so in yr case, u only switch on 2 unit most of the time, shldnt be a problem for daikin ma56ev1.


for mitsubishi, different liao, becos its btu is 36000, so all 4 fcu wil stil get 9000btu is switch on all at the same time. so cooling power will not lose out.

Went around a few air con supplier querying about a new set of system 3 to replace existing. After much hunting, still went back to my last installer due to reasonable price and good workmanship. The lady boss , Mrs Ang is friendly and gives good advice. Settle for Mitsubishi Starmex Inverter 3 eventually, upgrade from LG non inverter currently using.
