My Panasonic no fan mode? How to do that?
Yes I knew this trick but can't apply to my Panasonic, sad.

If you have a ceiling fan, leave it on to have air circulation.

Just a quick question.

Currently I'm using Daikin inverter 1.5 hp for my masteroom size 16ft X 19.5 ft. I found that the compressor runs frequently and the energy consumption is around 10kwh for 12 hours of usage, I am not sure is normal or not? Temperature set at 23 degree. Just wondering if I change to 2.5hp inverter, am I going to save my electric bill? Thanks in advance for the advices.

Your AC is under power to room size . Mine is slightly bigger and I am using a Pana 2hp non invertor. Temp is set at constant 25 with low fan speed. Operating hours 10 to 5 daily.

Occasionally, when I am still awake, I notice few times the compressor will 'cut' off when set temp detected.

My living area which is very much bigger open space is also similar unit, 23 and low fan and the compressor will run non stop. Only turn on when is hot day.

Didnt monitor the power consumption .

Thanks Sifu for your reply, I will consider for 2hp. May I know what is the different between r410a and r32 gas? Does it influence the energy usage? I saw some articles online saying that r410a is going to discontinue. Does it affected the user in future?

Hi guys, i am looking to purchase 6 units of wall mounted aircond for my new house, there are 1.0HP, 1.5HP, 2.0HP that i am looking for,

which brand should i go for? in term of maintenance, reliability, etc.

also i do see there is SAVE3.0 program by govt, how does that work if i wanted to purchase 6 units?
*
I can only advise to buy 1 brand and no mix. Personally, I go for Pana. Not saying others no good as I have been using Pana for a long time.

hi guys, i m surveying 2.0 HP to replace my spoilted 5 year old daikin (sempat to claim warranty for compressor but it then only last for 6 month)

my initial preference is panasonic deluxe s series, however, found midea all easy pro (https://www.midea.com/my/air-conditioners/residential-air-conditioners/wall-mounted-inverter/2-0hp-all-easy-pro-inverter-series-msep-19crfn8) quite attractive interm of price/ mechanisme/ ? power usage but wonder if it's accurate as being advertised

pana deluxe s 2.0 vs midea all easy pro 2.0hp
19000 btu vs 18000 btu
1460w vs 1320w
1/5 warranty vs 2/5 warranty
price wise pana definitely more expensive.. by few hundreds

is it the lower W, more cost saving ? or need to see how much coverage area too?

any review on this midea pro easy? as only found few seller in lazada/shoppee only
*
I am just speculating ... the technician could have installed a used compressor and kept the claimed unit. Unlikely a brand new unit last only 6 months unless a lemon.

All my AC are basic non invertor. I only want good cooling. Features not important for my usage.

Bought a 2hp non invertor over the weekend. The new for cuurent place and the current goes to another property.

My current 2HP air cond making much and louder noise when power on. The outdoor unit loud noise and indoor unit got “seem” loud noise.

Usually set at 28 with auto fan speed. Occasionally will set fan speed to medium and low fan speed.

Can’t tell personally whether it is abnormally loud and whether due to fan speed.

Got technician came and check and said compressor is faulty and said expensive to change compressor. Instead advisable to replace to a new unit.

Any sifu  here for similar experience and what next steps to take
*
The indoor sound can only comes from the blower motor. Labour plus parts will exceed 200. My pana 2 hp blower motor is 160 excluding labour.

As for outdoor, if the ac is still cold, cont to use till knock out.

A new 2hp pana non invertor is about 2.6k incl installation. Just bought 1 two weeks ago. Invertor will be higher.

Is up to you whether to replace or change parts.

Do a proper service. Make sure he takes down both indoor and outdoor umit to clean. Tell him you want that way and no other ways. If he say no need, find another technician. Let him know b4 he come over.

Whether there is gas leak can only find out when he takes down the unit and will let you know.

Hmm. It’s still cold though.
The technician said something compressor faulty and eventually will cause leak gas or something.

Hmm. Then I be using it until it kaput.
So is this abnormal sound usually due to blower motor ?
This air cond has not been service for long times already.
Only last 3 years been using it constantly 3-4 hours at night time and 1-2 hours afternoon.

The sound from the indoor unit can only be the blower motor which is the only big moving part. The flap motor is too small to create the sound.

Sample of blower motor..

okay, but even night last time put 25-26, is okay one. now feel diff abit. outside ambient temp lately around 30+c when hot but last few years doesnt have tis problem. my unit is MHI R410A model maybe 8years edi i believe.
ok thanks. will ask them do thorough clean. i ask my friend recommend another service guy, he did say should be dirty need clean and got ask me what model also. hopefully is good tis time.

And dont tell the tech to check for gas leak or say not cold. If you ask him, 99% he said yes and will charge you to 'refill' gas.

Just say ..... long time no service jor.

Hi everyone, I need some advice. I have recently collected my key for my first new house. The unit comes with two (2) new PanaXXnic air conditioners provided by the developer. Due to my unit is only 700sqft, both air cond are non-inverter and with 2 compressors. The developer installed 1 compressor at my tiny balcony and another 1 in the yard.

I'm thinking whether it is wise for me to sell it off, and buy a new one or trade-in for inverter and multi-split type. How much I should sell to the air cond guy? Is 30% off from the RRP reasonable?

Also, is the multi-split type prone to damage?
*
2 in 1 or 3 in 1 or whatever combo appliances is not a good buy. If something spoil, everything else cacat.

Invertor AC is a 'myth' compared to a invertor fridge that runs 365/7/24.

If an AC shop buy less 30%, how much can he sell later bearing in mind is a 'used' unit. On the assumption he makes 20% profit margin, will you as a buyer pays for new if price diff is only 10% ?

If is below 50% he may consider and so am I.

Hi all..
Anyone experience there’s only right side of the AC blowing air? The setting is not  on one side mode… even up close also very obvious it’s only bowing from one side though can see the fan is rotating …
*
Normal problem if the coil and blower are dirty. Air that goes through the coil will go out through whichever blower space that is not clog up.

Same concept with water leak. Water will find its way through whichever available hole or gap.

Do a complete service and it should resolve.

My master bedroom is 18' x 17' ~ 306 sqft (ceiling is 10.5' tall)

So last year actually I ordered the 2.5 HP Daikin FCF inverter cassette... but until now stocks haven't arrive la. So their distributor offered me 3HP unit instead without extra charges. Should I go for it? I mean pros is that it can cool faster on hot days, and well it likely will take up more power (less efficient) since I usually set like 24C instead of 20C.

Price diff will be few hundreds and your supplier didnt quote you 3hp for 2.5hp earlier ? 3hp also invertor ? If he is 'generous', take.

Hi I measured the copper piping given by my developer are 12.7mm.. does it mean i can only install those aircond that fit 12.7mm? Most of them are 2hp and above... Can i install a 1hp 9++mm at the 12.7mm existing piping?
*
I doubt the developer will give 2hp piping for all. The safest is to confirm with the developer.

Cannot use 2hp piping for 1hp.

I have used my original concealed 1.5hp piping for 1hp AC. In my opinion, not adviseable as performance drop. I did it because I didnt want to hack the wall and the AC is seldom use.

1hp AC anymore.. haiz..

There is a different. The tech did a reducer connection for the compressor.
