HDB Aircon Installation Singapore
Living In A HDB Flat
There is a saying that goes, “A house must be built on solid foundations if it is to last.” This saying applies to air conditioners too. Without proper installation of your air-con, it will cause a lot of problems in the future such as premature deterioration of aircon parts and leaking of water.
Most people live in HDB flats in Singapore. To install an air conditioner in one of these flats, there are certain rules and regulations that have been set by the Housing and Development Board. One of the regulations states that installation of an aircon in a HDB flat can only be done by a trained aircon installer. The rationale behind this is to prevent problems from arising in the future due to improper installation.
Aircon Installation Guidelines
The Housing and Development Board has come up with a set of guidelines on aircon installation which cover certain aspects. These aspects may include your flat type, maximum current allowed and the maximum number of condensing units to be installed.
As these guidelines are quite complicated to comprehend sometimes, we can also advise you based on your expectations and needs. We will identify if it is suitable to install the air con that you have in mind based on the guidelines. Therefore, you will be able to avoid unnecessary problems arising when your air conditioning unit is checked if it meets the requirement.
Depending on your personal preference, you can choose to install an inverter or non-inverter air conditioner as well. There are also several types of air conditioning systems. The most commonly used by HDB flat owners is the split system which can help to individually cool a room or a few rooms rather than your whole home.
Installing A Split System Air Conditioner
To install a split system aircon unit, we will choose a location on your walls with no obstruction so that the indoor unit can be mounted. After that, the mounting plate is secured to the wall and a hole is made for the piping system. Next, the electrical connections are checked and pipes are connected. The indoor unit is secured onto the mounting plate.
Moving on to the outdoor unit, a suitable location is chosen to place the outdoor unit. After that, the outdoor unit is laid onto a concrete pad. Electrical wires and the pipes are then connected to this unit. The outdoor unit normally houses the compressor and condenser.
To complete the installation, the air and humidity is removed from the refrigerant circuit through a vacuum. Proper insulation is then done to the piping. Finally, the piping is secured to the wall properly and the hole in the wall is sealed.
