    Yup,it;s just a feeling, because it can also be a case of the thermostat dial being set a bit more clockwise. Hard to tell by the Meralco bill bro, because there are a lot of factors in play, like, i also bought a smart oven at the same time and baking a lot now than cooking with gas. I also switched to microwave oven from rice cooker. Temperature also varies. Long term data is not even relevant anymore because of too much variables introduced.

    Thus, I am left with what I perceive or to be more objective, with what I feel. Thus, I return to my original statement...

    "I need to set the thermostat lower to achieve the same temp as the middle thermostat settings of my previous units",

    and replace the succeeding statement with...

    " turning the thermostat dial closer to the coldest setting increases your electric consumption"

    Pahinga muna ako sa Concepcion ACs,

    Back reading this thread. I think a lot agree that Condura is great. We personally use Carrier 1hp enough for a small room window type. Tipid naman sa kuryente kaso mejo not really in with quality kasi 2 years palang sya samin.

    I only bought 2 ACs so far. Both are window type, mechanical with timer.

    Condura Jr [0.5 hp]

    Pros:
    - small and compact.
    - good cooling capacity
    - with low & high fan setting
    - energy efficient
    - auto on function for fan once the timer reaches zero

    Cons:
    - you need to unscrew front grill on the sides before you can clean the filter.
    - no auto air swing function
    - noisier than the Panasonic despite being smaller

    Panasonic [0.6 hp]

    Pros:
    - very quiet and smooth operation
    - good cooling capacity
    - with low & high fan setting
    - energy efficient
    - air filter is easy to clean since removable ang front grill

    Cons:
    - big, bulky & heavy
    - no auto air swing function [only for digital models]
    - sana meron ding auto on swicth for fan [pero wala!]

    I prefer the Panasonic over condura because of its quiet operation and its easier to clean. Based on my observation their 0.6, 0.8, 1.0 & 1.5 hp has the same casing/housing, nagkakatalo na lang sa size ng motor sa loob. You won't mind the bulkiness once its installed na sa window or wall. Also if doing general cleaning you can pull out the actual unit from the casing. Although I wish plastic ung bottom nya para mas rust and corrosion resistant.

    As for energy efficiency, around 180-200 kwh monthly consumption. The AC is usually on for 15 hours daily between 1:00pm [after lunch] to 5:00am [next day] usually at thermostat setting of 4 or 5 out of 10. Average monthly bill is 2,000-2,300 pesos including the other appliances. So there goes my two cents!

    I agree. Our first aircon is Kelvinator. Now it is a Condura. I like Kelvinator better because it is more quiet than the Condura we use now.

    My other choice before ws Panasonic.

    I suggest buying known brands so it'll be easier to fix in case there is a problem.

    RE: Inverter aircon --> not advisable if you';re going to use for extended period of time. Matagal mo mababawi ang puhunan.

    I believe you're trying to decide for a window type AC. Between the two I think Everest is a much better choice. Aside from their window ACs, they also offer a wide selection for split types [wall, ceiling and floor mounted] and inverter types as well.

    But personally, if the reason why you're choosing between the 2 brands is their low costs then I suggest to stretch your budget a little bit and settle with Condura or Kelvinator. Mura pero good quality and they have a lot of service centers scattered in the country [since locally made by Concepcion-Carrier] for warranty and after sales services.

    In the end its your choice but whatever that is, try to find the model with a timer [doesn't matter if its manual or digital, basta may timer!] to save you some money on your electricity bills.

    Correct Sir.

    Time will come all of them will be of inverter types.

    Just like buying a TV nowadays, no more choice but the flat thin screen. Wala na yung mga model na yung mga model na nakakalaki ng itlog pag binuhat mo .

    The more we patronize, the cheaper it will get.

    i'd go for carrier/condura, tried and tested for philippine weather. we've got a unit thats still good with over 10 years.

    go for a window type if you can. split types are costly to install and maintain.

    I would:

    1. Stay with brands with long standing reputation
    2. Avoid extra complicated circuitry such as "computer control", push button, etc. since they add an extra layer of complexity - more things can go wrong and yes they will find a way to go wrong further down the road.
    3. Find the reason for being cheap - maybe ask around in your nearby ref/aircon repair shop regarding the brand.

    I've canvassed and studied all the prices and features of A/Cs i can find in the market today and I've come to get the Imarflex brand in Ortigas Home Depot for P11,990. It's digital control is so accurate, it has timer control, has temperature display and the cheapest. I got a 1HP for 13sqm room. I wish i got the 3/4HP because it cools so fast that i think its way above for this room size. The only problem i'm encountering is when you turn it on it starts with cool mode and hi fan, which is manageable. And another thing, using your creditcard its 0% interest for 9 months.

    Stay away from Idec. Bought a 1.5 and 2.5 hp last 2005. The 1.5hp had problems with the blower sobrang ingay.

    Then the 2.5hp suddenly shorted yesterday. Almost caused a fire. Plus their after sales service is overcharging. Check up of the unit is 850 (250 lang ang Panasonic). Price of capacitors are severely bloated at 900.

    If you have the budget, go for better known brands like Panasonic. Since I was on a budget, I replaced mine with a 2nd hand Pana. no problems. Build quality pa lang, ang layo compared sa Idec.
