    Split Type A/C Suggestions

    For a tenanted apartment: two questions actually. Assume that in all cases i'm only considering inverter types with energy 1 rating.

    1) If you were property seeking, would a Fortress brand a/c affect your image of the place? I mean probably you wouldn't care, but in the sense that you might then question the quality of everything overall and worry if the place would fall apart. Or maybe most people won't bat an eyelid.

    I ask, obviously, because it's one of the cheapest options and also inclusive of a 2 year warranty (most brands only one).

    2) Otherwise, anyone have brand suggestions? Long term i'd prefer reliable over price, since scaffolding ain't cheap and its a pain in the arse. But people don't make things like they used to. Are Daikin still as reliable as they once were? Or is Fortress that bad? (The unit to-be-replaced is a Fortress, kaput after 5 years, but there's another one still going strong after 7+ years).

    Hitachi - any opinions? That's the other brand which offers a 2 year warranty.

    Thanks!

    Split inverter is the key factor. What brand it is hardly matter for an average tennant.

    Daikin will appeal to higher paying tennents
