While a normal air-con can still function if one of the split unit is down, the whole inverter air-con system might knock out if there is any fault in any of the unit. Besides, inverter air-con contain electronic chip boards which can cost a few hundred dollars each to replace. So, whatever you saved on your electricity bills may not be enough to pay for the extra bucks you paid when you bought the air-con and repairs.
    I would take his comment/advice on inverter technology with a pinch of salt. Most likely the repairman doesn't know how to fix it. It's like the old independent auto mechanics who don't know the electronic fuel injection system and keep telling people not to buy cars with EFI technology.

    i'm also considering the art cool one when my flat renovates... but it ain't so soon so it kinda gives me some time to evaluate it since it's new... but the design is really nice...

    Actually, the lowest an air-con can go is about 18 degrees. Those that says 16 degrees is just for show. 18 degrees is cold enough. If you still feel hot at this temperature, something is wrong with ur air-con. Don't forget, your air-con also needs periodical maintenance to be in its peak performance.

    Well, I trust my brother's friend who is an old hand in his trade. He handles all kind of air-con including the inverter type and knows well enough which is more reliable. Buy one at your own peril.

    sanyo is good, had one at my parent place, almost 10 years liao hardly had any problem, only until recently that it started to give some noise but didn't bother to repair coz its almost 10 years plus they are shifting soon.....
    i reckon 10 years is very good shelve life considering most electrical appliances is not built to last these days.....
