saan ok na bumili ng aircon?
sa sm..pareparehas lang naman presyo ..sakin LG mura na may 5yrs waranty pa sa lahat ng parts kumpera sa iba 1 yr waranty *** yun 5yrs waranty sa compressor lang.
kung sa binondo area, sa worldwide sa escolta, mura.
elsewhere, kung may Anson's mas malaki sila mag discount kumpara sa iba.
brand-wise, di rin pare pareho discount for similar items.
for ex. mas malaki discount ng brands like samsung kumpara sa brands gaya ng panasonic.
I am currently using a panasonic 1.5 hp for my condo. Tipid sa kuryente. I am using it daily for 5 hours and ang total bill ko is only around 2k. I also use a Panasonic Ref kasi mataas ang EER and mabilis magpalamig kahit lowest setting. I believe Panasonic is a better brand kapag cooling ang paguusapan kasi maganda a compressor and 5 years pa warranty. Philippine Made pa kaya you support the local industry
I think Hitachi brand aircons are more popular among commercial/industrial users.
Samsung is known for their LCDs.
Last month, we upgraded our 5-year old window type from samsung to panasonic split type. no regrets at all.
^^ never buy extended warranty. ever. you won't need it because the equipment you are buying is designed not to break down way past the extended warranty period.
and if it does, you will find that the cost of repair is still cheaper then that cost for the extended warranty.
Any feedback of Everest and LG ACs?
pls. help me buy a split type aircon? puro kc window type alam ko na aircon. bale kc plan namin na split type na lang para di na magbutas ng wall. problem lang ng split type, i guess, is yung installation nito. or is it kasama na sa pagbili nito?i mean, kasama na ba ang free install (or minimal payment) sa pag buy ng split type aircon? what ok and best priced split type aircon out there?
naka LG split type kami, kailangan parin magbutas sa wall eh, para sa tubing. ok naman ang lamig. depende na lang siguro sa HP. nung binili yung samin, more or less 5k yung installation fee. nagbutas pa sa wall namin, pero maliit lang.
from my very limited experience... YORK is the best
sa installation charge, depende sa brand. dati samsung split type, libre install. di ko lang alam ngayon. Panasonic, inabot ng 4.5k charge sa amin. depende sa haba ng tubing, may extra charge in excess of 10 ft.
tapos kung may existing nang bracket, maipapa-less mo na rin yun.
Kolin. Been using for 8+ years now. Never had any problem. Maginaw. Only requested for free cleaning service from Kolin in hte first year, then I clean it myself lang years following using pressurized garden hose.
any "bad" feedbacks on samsung 2hp split type, inverter units?
i saw a nice site selling it for 37k - installed... it's a steal compared to the panasonic inverter of the same capacity plus there's a 4k++ charge on installation.
furthermore, the installers of panasonic are asking the wifey to go for a 2.5hp (56k after discount) unit when they did the survey. it's for the living room (14' ceiling), which measures 28sqm, but is open via stairwells going to the 1st and 3rd floors. they said that if she insists on a 2hp unit, she'll have to sign a waiver of some sorts...
any inputs that can affect the decision-making would be appreciated, as the purchase will happen in 2 days time...
i'd go for york under normal circumstances, but wifey can't find an inverter unit / split-type sa pinas...
we have window ac frigidaire, 1200 btu and it's one of the best brands we have tried. those portable ac's aren't good, expensive pa.
As with our case, when we switched to inverter, we tend to use the aircon a lot more.
my bill last month was 2k less, but we were away for 6 days. and the new aircon was only used during the final week of the billing period.
I am waiting for my bill this month set to arrive any day now to get a better estimate. i'd let you know.
And I may be wrong but I think the height of the room won't affect the rating much. but if you could seal/enclose the stairwell going to the 1st floor, it would likely help a lot. what would happen is all the cold air would stream down to the 1st floor.
They do the survey for a reason, it's to ensure proper cooling capacity of the unit. if you would use a lower hp rating, then just go for a non-inverter unit. since it defeats the efficiency of an inverter since the unit would be running at full capacity most of the time.... in essence, there won't be significant savings.
