Air-Con Installation For Terrace House

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was quoted 12k by an aircon company recently to install aircon for living, dining and 5 bedrooms. Is this reasonable ? Sales agent claimed new piping needed since my house is 15 years old. It is a 2 storey terrace + attic.

Forgot to mention brand of aircon: Mitsubishi Starmex.

why not call a few company to get quotes rather than ask in a forum where folks here don't have any idea about the condition of your house and what needs to be replaced or difficulty in replacing.

On a separate note, I once asked my regular aircon serving guy what brand tends to fail a lot since he also does repairs. He told me to stick to Diakin and/or Mitsubishi Starmex to be safe. Hope this helps a bit.

If all aircons are inverter seems reasonable.

My place about 2 years back for a little less than 12k consists the following :

Living room 18k btu non inverter

Dining and kitchen 12k btu each non inverter

MBR 18k btu inverter

3 bedrooms 12k btu each inverter

study room 9k btu inverter

Total 8 fancoils, brand Sanyo

i imagine it would cost more for a house since the trunking would be longer. but by way of comparison, i paid $12k to replace my apartment's aircon + trunking.

living - 22k btu

dining - 22k btu

master - 22k btu

bed 1 - 12k btu

bed 2 - 12k btu

bed 3 - 12k btu

study - 9k btu

7 fancoils and 3 condensors - daikin inverter but the non-green ones (R22). R410 cooling capacity is less

I just installed Daikin inverter

Living Room 24k BTU - 1fancoil 1condensor

Dining 24k BTU - 1fancoil 1condensor

Bedrooms #1,2,3 12k BTU - 3fancoil 1condensor

Jr Masterbedroom 18k BTU - 1fancoil 1condensor

Attic Masterbedroom 24k BTU - 1fancoil 1condensor

House description : 2storey inter terrace house with attic

Grand Total - 7 fancoil & 5 condensors, includes all piping, trunking etc etc

Total Damage - $13650 (no GST...ask them to absorb)

* also installed the non-green ones. The green ones although environmentally friendly costs almost double and not every aircon service teams can service green ones. But everyone can service the non-green ones.

* the difference between Mitsubishi and Daikin only marginally difference so makes more sense to get Daikin (i always thought Mit should be like 20-30% cheaper but i was wrong). Anyway been using Daikin all our lives.

Hi Pantieileen,

I am in the process of building my house with similar number of rooms like yours. Could you PM me your aircon contractor?

Thanks.
