    Hmm...that's going to be bloody inefficient in terms of power consumption in the long run. Are you sure you still want this? IS it possible to compromise with, say, a ceiling fan instead?

    Also what purpose do you need the air-con for? I think it's only justifiable if you are doing something like a server or data-cluster.

    Yheai know the consumption is going to be a big hassle, but i've got no choice. Its the only possible way. Ceiling fan is way too hot. My room is quite stuffy. I need the aircon for mainly comfort and probably for my rig too.i mean kill two birds with one stone. i've been planning to get this for so long. Any recommendations?

    But if u going to use it often, it is going to suck lots of energy.

    Are you using the utilities room? No reason why you can't use normal aircon units otherwise. Contractors can always route the air con piping around support columns or H beams.

    Hmmm, the window casement aircon at most has 1 tick green energy label. And the annual consumption rated by NEA is about S$850. Comparing to a 4 tick Single Split air-conditioner, the latter uses S$180-$250 per annum. But if really no choice, then head down to various big electronic store like Best, Harvey, Courts to compare. Followed by a quote from various neighborhood air con specialist.

    Use this as a reference:

    COOLSERVE - the DOCTOR of AIRCON™ Contact Us. We take care (Sales, Aircon Service, Leaking, Not Cold, Energy label) of your air conditioner equipment. Toshiba, Daikin, Mitsubishi Electric, Sanyo, National, Fuji Electric, Fujitsu, Carrier, Hitac

    Narrow down your search. For me, I went to the big stores first, find out the annual consumption, then with the info I found, I choose the brand and lastly choosing which guy to install for me. I chose the neighborhood air con specialist. They are significantly cheaper. I just hired one guy to do it and he's very professional. If you need recommendation, PM me bah .

    Actually there are 2 ticks casement units like the one I recommended... Though not as efficient as 4 tick split units you do save quite alot on installation and maintenance since its pretty much a DIY job if you are able to get a family member to help you with carrying it up to the window (that's the only hard part). If its not for the long run (ie, not staying there for long) then it is probably more economical in the short term.

    Got such thing as can't have a normal aircon one meh?

    Its just whether its troublesome... Like myself just changed an entire 3+1 unit, took nearly 10 hours ++ to get it done due to false lifted wooden flooring (japanese style), false ceiling and a carpentry work blocking the entire bracket that needed to be changed ...
