My old Samsung aircond is faulty so I decided to replace it with Panasonic aircond inverter 1HP model CS-XPU10XKH. The installation was done on 31/03/2023.
Why I Use Panasonic?
I use Panasonic because I have good experience with my other Panasonic aircond. I found that Samsung aircond is bit hard to repair and I want to add the new aircond to my Panasonic mobile app so I can control the aircond remotely.
Besides, I found Panasonic aircond is cold, really silent and energy saver.
The distance between the indoor to outdoor unit is 29 ft. For the first 10 ft the installation charges is RM250 and additional one feet the contractor charges RM17.
It took around 4 hours to do the installation from 230PM to 630PM.
Total Installation Cost
First 10 ft installation: RM250
Additional 19 ft x RM17: RM323
Disposal of old Samsung aircond: RM80
I have 2 sliding doors that are hard to slide and making scratching sound. I know I need to replace the rollers, lubricate or remove any dusts inside the rollers.
Sliding Door #1 – Remove Dust & Hair, Lubricate and Grease
When I opened the first sliding door and remove the rollers from the frame, the rollers are still good, the only things it got dusts and hair. After cleaning the dust and hairs, my contractor lubricated it with WD-40 and put grease around the bearings.
Besides, the contractor puts grease on the sliding door rail.
After put back the roller, the sliding doors become smooth again. Solve problem #1.
Sliding Door #2 – Replace Old Rollers
For sliding door #2, the rollers didn’t really smooth anymore. So I decided to replace it with new one where the rollers bearing is concealed. This is better to avoid the rollers getting rough easily due to dust or hair.
Cost of Repair
Rollers: RM5 per piece x 4 = RM20
Labour charge (5 panes): RM200

Why I don’t Use my Usual Sliding Door Repairman
I don’t use the usual contractor because I found their price is too expensive. I have to change 5 panes that might costs me nearly RM1,000.
I bought a terrace house at Denai Alam and plan to do simple renovation to the house. My most worried is to get good quality with reasonable price contractor.
Fortunately my awning contractor Saujana Electrical Trading, can do any house renovation. From my past experience when installing my awning, the contractor is fast with quality jobs and with reasonable price.
