Im actually looking myself for a 1HP only, and possible a 0.5-0.7HP ...
So if you can wait for 2-3 days I have some results.

Actually neither Robinson nor SM City have 1HP with Inverter under 28K !

1.5HP for 18K - tell me where if you find one - usually they are withut inverter - and thats bullshit to buy.

I replaced my 1HP Windowtype with a 1.5HP Split Inverter - and that alone brought my VECO Bill down by 1500php !

But DONT buy without a remote - or find a maid thats 6 feet or taller !

Bullshit    ???+

 

That all depends

If you used the aircon only 5 hours a day it will take l o n g time before you have saved the extra cost

if you run your aircon 24/7 yes get an inverter type

Not sure what the pricing is like these days but American Home Inverters were the cheapest around for quite a while at under 23,000 for 1HP

 

They were available at SR and SM Appliance center very quiet as the compressor is managed better

Going around for 2 days now I found the same than ever.

Prices are about the same everywhere - you make no real deals.
Those guys selling usually have NO Idea what they talk about - best is in CITI Hardware they only sell BostonBay and those have NO EER information !
The guys just say - its inverter Sir, it saves energy ... but have no idea about EER at all.
I could have bought a Samsung at Parkmall today at 21K - inverter split type - seems a real deal - but EER is just 10
I better buy a Panasonic at 28K that has an EER of 13.6 and saves way more in the long run.

Plus they now charge 6-7K for basic installation.
2 years ago that was just 3.5K for a Kolin 1.5HP unit

 Many employees have little product knowledge simply because many are replaced every six months or so. It seems many have little motivation or time to learn the basics. Seemingly if they do try and explain the fundamentals of the product they really don't have a clue.

Why go to the big malls to buy appliances, they have higher cost, like rent of store

I always to to the smaller places, like echo appliance and asian home appliance

I always go to echo appliance close to Magellan´s Cross

When we were shopping for new inverter AC's for our home, we went to Echo, Imperial (on AC Cortes in Mandaue) and SM Appliance in SM City Cebu. The best package deal for the three units we wanted (with installation and service included) was from SM Appliance. So, that was where we bought them. We have been very happy with the choice we made.

I would suggest that people should shop around and find the deal that best meets their needs, regardless of whether the source store is a major player or not. Most of the stores, whether major or not, use third-party installers and maintainers, so where you buy it doesn't really matter once the purchase is final. Just make sure that the unit(s) you buy meet your needs, and then just find the best deal you can. Deals change, and there is no substitute for shopping around.

A couple of things to consider. Some of the items in the department stores are there on consignment and often even those salespeople are employed by the distributor.

Also- as regards high rent for the department stores. Having a large store selling the items often leads to many sales and volume purchasing discounts for the department store.
