Moving into the next part of your life can be scary. There are so many things to take into consideration when it comes to buying household items. Well fear not, here we will break down the key aspects to replacing or buying a good aircon system for your future home. 


System # & BTU

The first thing you have to consider is how many units you need, and which system you need for each room. System 1, 2, 3, or 4? As the numbers imply, each system just means the amount of FCU attached to 1 compressor unit. System 1 means 1 FCU attached to 1 compressor unit, system 2 means 2 FCU attached to 1 compressor unit, etc. However, don’t forget to measure the BTU needed for each room. All this means is the amount of power needed to cool a room, the bigger the room, the higher the BTU. This is very important because the BTU and system as a combo needs to be matched with the compressor unit to prevent it from overworking and eventually causing more problems. A little confusing? Don’t worry if you ever need help deciding, check out our BTU chart below or drop us a chat and we can provide you a free quotation.

Ticks 

If you ever search up aircon installation, 5 seconds into your research you will find that all aircon systems will have 1-5 ticks. What exactly does this mean? Unlike what many may think at first, ticks are not a general rating system for all aircons, instead, it is a rating system for energy efficiency. The higher the rating, the more efficient the aircon is. Nowadays 4 or 5 ticks are the most commonly used, so you don’t even need to bother with ticks lower than that. This is a key consideration because you need to minimise any cost in the present and future. Trust me, your electricity bill will thank you later. 


Brand 

As you may have heard before, the 3 best brands for aircon are Mitsubishi, Daikin, and Panasonic. Of course, many people have said this for a reason, these 3 brands have been in the aircon industry for the longest of times. Therefore, this has made them more reliable, more knowledgeable and more known. This may come in handy when you want to service your aircon in the future as many technicians would know the mechanics of these 3 brands more than others. 


Cost

Now, on to the most important factor of getting an aircon, the cost. Replacing or buying a whole new system can cost you from $1,000-$10,000, but how do you know you’re not getting scammed? Don’t worry we will save you the hassle of looking into every aircon company in Singapore to compare prices. However, before we move on, the one thing that you need to understand is that prices are very individual to your home requirements. Therefore, here we will compare the prices based on system 1, 2, 3, and 4.

System 1 $1,200
System 2  $2,500
