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
Last Friday my house’s electricity trip then suddenly I coudn’t swith on my Panasonic wifi aircond. It shows Network Error.
My Panasonic wifi aircond is using Panasonic Smart Wifi Control CZ-TACG1 Network Adaptor to enable its WIFI.
When I open my aircond cover, the status and link LED are blinking.
So from there I know I have to reset back my aircond WIFI setting.
Add New Aircond
To reset the WIFI setting, click as if you want to add new aircond
Connect with AP Mode
Press Set Up Button until Status LED Change to Blinking Orange
In my case, my Status and Link LED are blinking green. So based on the Panasonic mobile application it asks me to press the reset button with sharp needle and then press set up button until Status link is blinking orange.
Click Next Then The App will Ask To Join the Panasonic AP
Join the Panasonic AP
Enter Your WIFI password
Then The App will ask to enter Device ID and Password
This step you just cancel it. After this you can control back your aircond without entering the device ID and password.
My master bedroom Panasonic aircond of 7 years broke down. I tried to repair it several times but it kept giving me problems. So I decided to buy new one.
Choices of Aircond
I have 2 aircond to consider as replacement:
1) Panasonic Premium Aero Series Inverter 1.5HP R32 gas (Model: CS-U13VKH)
2) Daikin Smarto Inverter 1.5HP R32 gas (Model: FTKH35A)
For the aircond, my major considerations are:
I have 2 Panasonic airconds based on my experience it is reliable doesnt give much problem. Only thing I expect that my Panasonic could last at least 10 years unfortunately only for 7 years.
At same time, I have 2 Daikin airconds so far I cant tell much of it, because I installed it at my rental properties.
So far no complaints from my tenants so it must be reliable.
I asked few servicemen most of them recommend Daikin because easy to service and find spare parts. Panasonic also easy but not as easy as Daikin.
2) Energy saving
Both Daikin Smarto & Panasonic Premium Aero Series are 5 Stars Energy Saving
3) Smart Features
Both Panasonic Premium Inverter & Daikin Smarto can be controlled via your smartphone and can control it anywhere as it is connected via Wifi. You need first to install its mobile apps.
Daikin Smarto & Panasonic Premium Inverter, you have to purchase its accessories to enable the mobile apps use. You need to buy one adaptor for one aircond. So if you have 5 airconds, you need to buy 5 adaptors.
