  • Ask ko lang if okay or possible ang setup na 2 split type inverter sa isang compressor lang connected?


    kapag multisplit may kanya kanyang compressor
  • kapag multisplit may kanya kanyang compressor



    Multisplit pala tawag dun. Hahaha advisable kaya sya na pang bahay?

    Ganito kasi yung balak:
    2nd Floor - Split type + outdoor unit (Balcony)
    3rd Floor - Split type
  • Hi All,

    If we are using the aircon within 18 to 20 hours a day? mas ma maximize ba namin ang Inverter Aircon?
    Mas matipid po ba sa kuryente? or minimal lang ang difference sa bill dahil mahaba ang oras ng usage?
    Currently we are using for almost a month na, non inverter aircon. Pag nag add sa bill ng more than 2k, mag inverter nako :)
  • @leejeans

    Matipid po ang inverter aircon, pero dapat akma ang hp ng inverter aircon sa room size. Kasi po kung masyadong malaki ang room size tapos undersized/underpowered ang inverter ac, hindi titigil ang compressor, at tataas ang konsumo.

    State nyo po room size nyo, ilang tao sa room, appliances o other heat sources. May post din dito tungkol sa equivalent hp for certain room sizes. Pa backread po.

    Sa case ko po, noong month ng april, 120kwh ang naconsume ko for 24 days of operation. Yung 24 days of operation ay halos katumbas ng 20 hours per day of operation.

    24 days times 24 hours per day = 576 hours
    30 days times 20 hours per day = 600 hours

    120kwh x 10pesos per kwh = 1200pesos, yan po

    Settings ko ay 26degrees cool mode low fan

    Sabihin na natin na iset natin sa temp na 24 degrees celsius and parehong 1.5HP na unit.

    If you run a conventional A/C for 10 hours a day, that would equate to around 1200-1300 watts of continuous usage or 12kwh per day. Average would be around P120 per day or additional P3600 sa electric bill.

    If you run an inverter unit sabihin natin window type na ang common EER is 12 pataas and run it for 18 HOURS a day, it will use around 1100 watts for the first few minutes (15-30 minutes give and take) then it will throttle down and run at a range of 350-580 watts in a continuous cycle and as per experience with my unit, I average around 400w/h so ilagay na natin sa 400. Multiply that by 17.5 hours plus add the first 30 minutes running at 1100 watts you get 0.55kwh so total mo would be around 7.55kwh. Given average Meralco rates, average would be around P75 a day or additional P2250 sa electric bill.


    Now setting the math aside, ano mas gusto mo nagbabayad ka ng additional na P3600 sa electric bill pero 10 hours ka lang super komportable or nagbabayad ka ng additional na P2250 sa electric bill pero 18 hours ka namang super komportable?

    "Mahal kasi ng inverter na aircon unit kumpara sa non-inverter. Halos limang libo ang difference" as per my condo neighbor from a different floor. After a brief stay at our unit, ayun grabe ang buyer's remorse. She bought a 1HP non inverter unit "inverter grade daw" whilst I bought a 1.5HP inverter. Price difference of 8k pero mas matipid naman ako sa kuryente ng mahigit 1.5k kumpara sa kanya.
  • Maraming Salamat - Kompressor at timespiral.

    Pa sked nako ng installation ng Inverter Split type.
    The next 1 million question is - anong brand? :)

    Salamat po uli

    I think multisplit has only one compressor built in one outdoor unit (condenser), with multiple indoor unit attached to it.

    Multisplit pala tawag dun. Hahaha advisable kaya sya na pang bahay?



    For me hindi sya advisable at all. Kapag nasira outdoor unit nyan, hindi gagana lahat ng mga indoor units sa rooms na nakakabit dyan. And the manner that manufacturers rollout these multisplit system is quite terrible. When specific model becomes obsolete, you have to replace the entire system should one component fails to get it working again.

  • Recently ordered a 2HP AUX J-Series Inverter Split. Fingers crossed, sana wala maging problema. Will update this thread once ma install na.
  • @leejeans i recommend carrier brand. i have two units ung isa >6 years and isa ay ~3 years

    Boss nakabili na pala ako ng AC yung LG LA100EC ang napili ko kasi hindi pala kasya sa room ko ang LA100EL. I bought the unit at Ansons ATC branch worth 29k. My room is 12sqm.
  • Ask ko lang if okay or possible ang setup na 2 split type inverter sa isang compressor lang connected?

    That's exactly what multi-split systems are for. Price-wise, mas mahal pa ang isang 2:1 multi-split kaysa sa 2 split units. And agree ako sa sinabi ni Musicgeek na once masira yung condenser unit eh 2 agad ang down na aircon sa halip na isa lang. With pcb woes hounding every aircon buyer, mas malala pa yan kapag naka-multi ka.

    @boomshine

    Glad na nakabili ka na. Medyo pahirapan na nga makabili lately no thanks to the mECQ.
  • Hi salamat sa mga nag bigay ng insights finally i decided to get la100el vs la100ec parehas lang pala mag babakbak kasi bitin ung abang namin so dun nako sa mas malaki onte nalang din yung agwat ng price buti dami stock sa abensons
  • ang aga pero ang alinsangan na dito sa QC. Binuhay ko uli AC this 8.30am.
