DC Inverter Aircon Thread (FAQ on page 1)

  • @SisigLover
    Uy ayos same tayo setup. May PC, TV rin. Difference lang is 4 people natutulog sa room namin. D ko lang sure sukat ng room namin pero I think I got it right naman na 2HP ang kunin. Yung old AC namin non-inverter na 1.5HP kaya tinaasan ko to
  • Managed to visit the condo again para makapaglinis after 5 darn months. I missed this hulk of a unit!


  • due na ang AC ko for cleaning. ayaw ko naman magpapasok pa ng ibang tao sa compound/bahay lalo na sa room ko.
    perwisyong nCov talaga.
  • @kompressor

    ang pogi!

    @statix

    Kakapalinis ko lang ng conventional window-type aircons sa bahay nila Papa. Yan na yan din ang sentiments ko as they came in to pull the units out. Haay.
  • @godai

    nakakatakot lang naman talaga kasi. i/we go out but with extreme precautions syempre minding the safety of other people also but i don't have the nerve to let strangers going inside our premises. nakakapraning pero mabuti na nag iingat.

    panasonic in a heartbeat.
  • One minor thing that matters a lot to me that sets the TCL apart from our Gree OEM's and Hitachi is the remote. Aside from being slim and easy on the hand, it has an amber backlight that illuminates on demand. Sorry, mababaw na kung mababaw pero maituturing ko itong one of the simple joys of this unit.

    NONE OF THE ABOVE. Definitely NOT interested na sa conventional aircons.. Sorry.

    Nice... malaking saving daw po yan coming from non inverter base sa mga nabasa ko dito...

    Managed to visit the condo again para makapaglinis after 5 darn months. I missed this hulk of a unit!


    My second choice... <heart> <heart> <heart>
  • EDIT: Nilagay ko floor area ng rooms gaya ni Papi kompressor para may idea readers sa area na pinapalamig.

    Hi mga peeps,

    Ask ko lang sa mga Sonoff users, I’ve been digging online stores pero wala ako makita na rated at least 20A na model.

    Have I been looking in the wrong places? LOL gusto ko sana lagyan yung MHI split ko sa sala kay lang 17A kasi max power draw nya.

    I know matipid sya pero curious lang ako ano pattern ng power draw nya throughout the day.

    Thanks sa mga makakasagot mga paps!

    BTW dumating na Meralco bill ko, from 7,796 down to 7,435:




    Usage scenario:
    -Mitsubishi Heavy Industries 3HP SRK71ZR 15-19 hours a day @25c daytime, 24c night time (41sqm, living dining and kitchen)
    -Hitachi RA-10HV 12-14 hours of usage a day @24c (11sqm bedroom)
    -Hitachi RA-10HVQ 10-12 hours of usage a day @24c (12sqm bedroom)
    -Basurang Carrier Optima 1HP 8 hours every Saturday night (11sqm bedroom)
    -60” 4K HDR LED TV 15-18 hours a day
    -12 cu ft inverter fridge set at -17c and 5c yung freezer and fridge
    -1 mini fridge sa upstairs kitchen
    -Nespresso machine brewing 2-3 times a day
    -IH pressure rice cooker 2x a day full cycle
    -Twin motor rangehood na 300 something watts siguro mga 2 hours a day pag nagluluto
    -11kg inverter washer 3-4x a week
    -Air fryer, used almost everyday
    -All Xiaomi Yeelight indoor and outdoor smart lights na LED (5 lights automatically turn on at 6:30pm full blast na white 9w each then pag 9pm na bababa to 2w na yellow, auto off by 5:30am)
    -3x 32” led TVs usually 1 hour lang pampatulog namin
    -TP link deco m5 mesh routers (3 units 24/7 naka on)
    -3x Mi air purifier 3H set at 17sqm fan speed for two units, one set at 32sqm running 24/7

    Can’t think of anything else na may significant power draw pero yan scenario sa bahay para may idea kayo. I’d say not bad considering yung level of comfort namin.

    Bumaba pa ng 361 pesos bill namin, it cools down a 41sqm area versus nung naka on dalawang Hitachi sa taas magdamag. Not bad at all.

  • ^wow congrats sir, super tipid at sulit na sulit yan.update mo uli kami pag nalagyan mo na ng sonoff
  • May taga-Cavite po ba dito?

    May mga alam po ba kayong dealer ng Panasonic o Kolin window type (inverter).

    Nagpunta na po ako sa SM Center Imus, Abenson Rob Imus, Rob Imus. Appliance. Wala ako nakita.
  • 7.4k for all those? Mahihiya sa iyo yung classmate ko who averaged 20k a month during the ongoing community quarantine for a quite small apartment consisting of the following:
    - 2HP super old conventional unit, 14 hours a day, manual thermostat (bedroom)
    - 0.75 conventional unit, 24x7 hirap na hirap magpalamig because of a poorly insulated ceiling, sala/wfh area.
    - 3 laptops halos magdamag bukas
    - 32 inch non-smart LED TV, used sparingly kasi sa laptop na lang nagkakanya-kanyang netflix.
    - 8kg inverter.washing machine, twice a week usage
    - 8.5 cubic feet frost-free non-inverter kelvinator fridge
    - 2 electric fans to complement the 0.75HP for spot cooling

    Wala na daw budget to upgrade to inverter units kasi halos break even na sa mga bayarin. Tatlo lang sila sa apartment (mag asawa and an adolescent son). He has no idea what he's missing.
  • @kompressor

    Papi ang sakit sa ulo ng ganyan na bill! Grabe nakakapanghinayang. Kawawa naman ???? sana maski mag hulugan nalang sila ng 2HP na inverter AC ang laking difference non.

    This is a new house kasi, talaga ginastusan ko radiant barrier sa roof plus 8” ba or 12” na rockwool insulation sa kisame can’t remember na haha! And yung windows namin heat rejecting tint na 3M plus caulking foam sealed lahat.

    Sa sobrang sealed ng bahay nagbabalak ako mag uwi ng apat na Xiaomi fresh air system pag nagpunta ako ng China kasi di na talaga binubuksan mga bintana hahaha!

    I’m happy so far with my power bill, after siguro ng solar na water heater atsaka pangarap kong Panasonic na 6-door fridge pahinga na muna ang bulsa wala pa 4yo Samsung ref namin puro kalawang na BASURA literal Samsung pati mga luma aircon namin sa province agang bumigay, TVs rin naka dalawa kaming obsolete na parts dinispatcha na namin.

    @Queenbee

    Maraming salamat madam! Sana bumaba pa lalo dahil ber months na haha.

  • ^sana all ganyan lang bill tapos ganyan din kadami ang appliances heheheh kakainggit. nakakaawa yung mga nagpopost sa fb, skyrocketing meralco bills :( sorry OT..
  • @KG888

    Ang baba naman ng bill nyo, malaking bagay talaga yung insulation

    Carrier at Samsung inefficient haha.. may samsung ref din kami malakas sya sa kuryente nagloloko pa yung digital display nya may ghost touch..

  • @Queenbee

    Siguro kasi I do a lot of research talaga sa efficiency ng appliances that I buy, it pays to do tons of research in the long run

    @Xyberby

    Yes, kaya pag nagpatayo ka ng house talagang pag gastusan insulation kasi babalik din. Malamig plus tahimik maski bumabagyo haha.

    Wala talaga ako bilib sa Carrier at Samsung eh, papalitan ko dapat yung Carrier na luma ng Hitachi na RA-10HV rin pero pag alis ng tito ko magiging maid’s quarters nalang yun so di na haha.

    @SisigLover
    Already saw dran’s post pero hindi lumalabas yung image. Nawala rin yung usage sa app after a few hours before buksan ulit. After magamit for 10 hours, the AC consumed 3.3kWh @ 23C, Fan2. Pwede na rin ata since 4 yung nutulog sa room hehe


    nilipat ko yung mga pics sa imageshack. sana lumalabas na.

    eto pala yung idle wattage 1.9w (wifi enabled)

  • Hello
    Ask ko lang po 26c and Set sa 2 fan yung aircon po nmin pareho ng mother ko di ba po ba pag hindi nman auto hindi titigil yung elixi sa likod?
    Tumigil po kasi yung sa amin pero mga 1-2mins umandar ulet

    Nagpa schedule na ako ng cleaning nung june 10 pa until now hindi npunta kailangan na malinis to Dapat nung march pa nga close nman sila hindi nman ako makatawag ng iba kasi bka my mangyari deperensya ma void ang warranty
    Nkkapraning din magpapasok ng iba tao sa bahay pra mag linis ng aircon.
  • @Nhinkui anong model ng AC mo?

    Some dual DC motor window inverter air conditioners like Panasonic and Hitachi (full sized versions only) regardless if naka manual ang indoor fan setting namamatay yung fan sa likod pag namatay din ang compressor just like split ACs.

    You cannot control this, the computer does the managing ng fan motor and speed is based sa outdoor and indoor temperatures as well as the compressor speed.

    Also, normal lang na pag namatay yung compressor the fan will keep running for 30 seconds to a minute to cool down the inverter PCB’s VRM and MOSFET (components that do the conversion from AC to DC power and voltage regulation).

  • Thank you dun sa mga nag-recommend ng Unitech na unit. Na-install na finally yung binili ko na 2HP last month pa. Medyo na-delay lang kasi muntik nang di pumayag yung landlord na palakihan yung butas, buti napakiusapan. Sarap ng tulog ko simula nung na-install. Galing ako sa 10-year old Condura na 1hp na non-inverter unit. Kung di pa umabot ng 8k yung kuryente ko, di ko pa maiisipang mag-upgrade.

    Pwede ba yung Sonoff S31 dito or baka may iba pa kayo mare-recommend for monitoring nung power consumption and para ma-control remotely? TIA
  • @kg888

    So far wala nga ganun kataas ang rating na Sonoff Power Monitoring Device.. You will have to make do with something like this from Lazada.. <click here for link>



    Meron iba nyan may LCD readout kaso mas mahal ng doble!

    @kompressor

    Grabe naman yan kaklase mo! Hahaha!

    @dirtydoc

    Yes you can use a S31 safely with it dahil 16A ang rating nya. The possible problem lies in 1. If your aircon outlet is the traditional grounded tandem outlet and not the universal type ay walang pagsasaksakan yung S31; and 2. the outlet of the S31 is a grounded parallel whereas the plug of the aircon is usually a grounded tandem plug which will not be directly compatible with the S31. You can opt to use a universal plug adapter but they're only rated for 10A which is unsafe for your 2HP unit. So unless you can replace the supply wire of your AC to one that uses a grounded parallel plug, you'll need to get a higher rated adapter plug to make it happen.

  • guys saan kayo nakabili ng pang monitor ng wattage ng aircon, yung sinasaksak sa outlet. di ko alam pangalan thanks
  • ^ read page 01 please. Nandun na lahat yan.

    As for where to buy, sa Lazada or Shopee lang po.

    Tia!


    I'll tap it before the breaker since built in na yung saksakan niyan sa outlet.

    Grabe naman yan kaklase mo! Hahaha!
    Pinayuhan ko na with incriminating evidence from my end pero wala pa rin. Imagine average Meralco bill niya during ber months, hindi bumababa ng 10k and wala pang ECQ/GCQ noon. Naaawa na lang ako pero with matching kamot ulo on the side. Ginagawang gatasan ng Meralco.
