Or are you looking for a company who will advise you appropriately on whether it is worth while to perform the aircon repair or change a new aircon fan coil or entire aircon system? Changing a new fan coil comes with guarantee and may only cost you a little more. It may be more worth while to change the aircon’s fan coil than to request for aircon repair.
