Totally changed what I am buying.

Now getting 2x2.2t Daikin Inverters - 57k each (good price? I think should be a bit lower)

And an E series 1.5t - 29k

Akshay, I got the 2.2T Daikin Inverter FTKD71F (cooling only) for 53.5/- incl taxes + 1K installation charges + copper piping of appx 10-12 meters @650/m. This is Chennai price though. Must point out that I have taken total 5 Daikins from the same dealer in the last 4-6 weeks and promised to taken another 2 next month.

@sanjayc; Thanks for the info. Do Daikin still insist that power only comes in from the outdoor module, or are they open to power being sent out (if required) and then comes back into the room?

Wink Re: Which home/office AC (air conditioner) to buy ?

Hello Team,

Out of the curiosity, today I looked inside our both 5 year old LG 1.5 ton window Ac and to my surprise its having Toshiba compressor.But when I recently went to the market while I wanted to purchase the Ac for our drawing room, the dealer told me that LG uses compressor of some Helgee company.

I think this is the main reason why the LG lost its position in the AC market
and now struggling hard to lure the customers based on the advertisements and promotions.Since the Ac in my parents room is not cooling properly hence after watching the name of Toshiba, my confidence has good a much needed boost in this AC since the gold fins at the outer side are still in very good condition along with the internal side fins.I have called the customer care to send their engineer to look in to the matter asap since now I dont want to
invest another 20-25 thousand in this Ac business.

It would be of great help if the team members currently using the LG Ac can tell which compressor is being used in their Ac be it window or split.

Regards,
Lalit Tyagi

In that case my dealer better match those prices. Can you post the name of your dealer? Thank you very much. We are paying this chap more than 1l for the installation + piping (lots) and all for 7 ACs in the house, so he better give me the best prices.

Hows the AC btw?

Well our 10+ year old LG A/C is using TECUMSEH Compressor and GE fan motor, just my 2 cents.

10 years ago the number of compressor manufacturers were minuscule, one could literally count them on finger tips. A lot of manufacturers including Hitachi used Tecumseh compressors. We need to look at what LG is offering currently in our price conscious market. Interestingly in the US market where LG is considered to be a premium brand they offer machines with Danfoss compressors.

Is this Aslam an employee/owner of an authorised dealership or simply an individual. The reason I ask this is that unless you buy directly from an authorised Daikin dealer and have the machines installed by them, your machines will not be covered by the manufacturer for warranty. A via dealer or a sub dealer's bill etc just does not cut it. In case of a warranty claim you must have copy(ies) of the work order(s) issued by the authorised dealer to its technicians specifically mentioning the details on the purchaser, location and each machines serial numbers etc. along with work details.

Sir...completely lost here? What exactly does this mean? As far as I can see, power cable from inside the room is going inside the IDU first.

Aadarsh Aircon, Chennai (listed on Daikin website). Both 2.2T is installed in my office. Working great.
BTW, I forgot to mention that I have not taken any stabilizer..does your cost include stabilizer as well? This dealer was quoting 1.2K for 4KVA & 1.5K for 5KVA stabilizer.

Fine, then they have changed the design. In the past they (the only ones to do so) insisted on the power first goes to the compressor unit, and throught that to the inside unit. Maybe they realised that Stabilisers do not like to be put out in the open!

Nope in Bombay we don't need stabilizers. I spoke to Franks dealer too, hes offering them for 55k. Possibly the price is higher in Mumbai due to octroi.

Sir, the design remains the same only the routing has changed..

..for aesthetic reasons, the power cable is now routed from behind the IDU to the ODU from where an internal circuit brings it back in the required form and rating for the IDU fan motor, flaps and led display etc.

Not at all. Thanks for taking the effort to help. I have been receiving all my email quotes from Mr. Rathod himself, but have been communicating with Aslam. On the quotes both their names are mentioned hence I assumed him to be an owner too.

http://www.emmarcomfortsystems.com/aboutus.html This is their website it seems.

Also one more thing. DO NOT buy Samsung ACs. Ever.

I've had their top of the line 1.5t for 2 years now. The condensor has been changed twice and today again it stopped cooling. I think the compressor has conked off this time.

Advice everyone here to not touch Samsung or any of these brands for ACs. Surprisingly with TVs I would buy only Samsung.
