i dunno better or not la.. instead of going thru flr or wat, i just see that the path of the wiring is maybe he hack the wall a bit then run the wire then plaster back... end of the day, if it works, then ok la.

hi falling flakes
my understanding is DO NOT get water storage tank.
1) it is more power consumption
2) takes longer time to heat up water, ie need to turn on power for 10 minutes b4 water get heated compare to instand water heater only takes barely 30seconds.
3) more expensive
i buy 2 water heater (one good one for MRB, one average one for common bath room) only $200)
4) waste space, doesn't look nice hanging at washing area, collect dust. :p

someone is talking abt ceiling fan?
i suggest not to have ceiling fan,
1) hard to clean, need to climb up to clean
2) hard to change the fan if it spoils esp for those with false ceiling, strong encourage not to have
3) not portable, if you have those standing fan, you can have more "wind" by putting the fan closer to you...more flexible in another words.
4) more expensive...cost $200+, whereas a cold air fan only $100 (very good quality liao)..and got air con like feeling...

hey cynthia, thanks for that - i need tat extra push to boycott the storage tank idea lol. actually instant ones hang inside the shower screen also not very nice just that storage tank will allow you to have those hot/cold taps. But then again, come to think of it, we EA peepx already getting less utilities rebates...better think of ways to save electricity! Thumbs up for instant heaters!

Oh ya! For those who are doing ceiling fans, I went to do some research with those shops that sell ceiling fans. They advise me that for LBox put still ok, but if u got false ceiling area u put u won't feel much wind, so it is a waste of money to install one ceiling fan at false ceiling areas. I forgot the reason liao but those shop owners all say like that...so well...do think carefully bah.

My current house got ceiling fan leh, and it is very cooling actually. But bear in mind my current place got no false ceiling or LBox lah. Oh and my mum got to climb up just to clean the blades. Initially I wanted to install one in the current MBR cos thats where the WIW is (not good to put aircon cos of moisture) but then come to think of it, better buy those cold air fan, easier to clean cos to be frank, I'm one of those lazy kind, so well...better save the trouble I guess!

hi falling flakes..
hahah..dun mention..actually instand water heater is more for western countries..not so applicable for SG...u can try asking ppl already has instand water heater for their feedback.

eh i think we will buy instant ones lah. since our flat doesnt have the hot/cold piping thingy done, get people to do for u also exp! better get instant ones cheaper also in the long run!

hi, running cost for storage heater is a bit high. and for it to heat up, it will take a while, unless u print money and nvr switch it off, then the water will be instant hot. Otherwise when u off it, it will slowly lose its heat, so when u need to use, u got to reheat the water (similar concept as those electric flask).

instant heater also ok, but like u mention, no hot water outlet at sinks, kitchen, etc.. so i using gas heater (free from citygas, my current house last time i got to buy that heater). it is ard the size of instant heater, just that need to put in the kitchen (or service balcony). not big, and honestly, i hv had this heater for 7 yrs, i hardly clean it but it is not as dusty as the things i put on display in the living room.. haha... with this heater, running cost is lower, and i hv hot water in all shower, sinks (include kitchen).

as for ceiling fan, actually using ceiling fan the air ciculation is better. those standing fan yes, you can put it nearer to u, but it will only cool a certain area only. but ceiling fan, the whole area the air is circulated, so if there are a lot of people, it is more comfortable. otherwise, if a lot of visitors, then hv to put multiple standing fans.

i thk if u hv false ceiling then ur ceiling is lower, so the blade to the ceiling has lesser clearance so no air i thk. but lbox is ok bcos the fan is still mounted on the ceiling. put in bedroom i thk ok but i thk cannot put those with hanging lights. I try la see how.

Yes cleaning the fan is the only trouble that i can forsee. but my current house there are 2 fans, i clean them once a yr and its actually not so dirty like those at coffee shop/classrooms.. haha.. but it helps a lot if u are tall or u hv a step ladder (i hv so no prob to clean la)... haha

i use standing fan in my bedroom now, when i sleep with my kids, very difficult for the wind to teok all of us.. haha..

i think long run gas will be cheaper.. bcos up till now, gas tariff is still lower than electricity... unless of course gas price become higher than electricity.
 

fallingflakes

New Member
hmmm swatdila, u mean u got the free gas heater from citygas and it is installed in the service balcony and u can have hot water even in the kitchen? does that mean u have hot and cold taps in the kitchen?
 

swatdila

New Member
yes, i installed it in the srevice balcony. my current house no service balcony, so i put in the kitchen.

yes i hv hot water in all shower, wash basin and kitchen sink. of course got to run the hot pipe la. i thk abt $400+ to run the hot pipe to 5 points..
 

swatdila

New Member
can beuseful sometimes.. clean kitchen sink once in a while.. or if u washing very oily pots and pans, use hot water is gd.

this is a good to have la, not a must hv. sometimes days very cold, can use warm water to wash also haha. especially on rainy days and i got to wash bottles at 6am before going to work, warm water is a blessing.. haha

or u wan u can also buy from

fallingflakes

New Member
hi cynthia, the only good thing abt 14th floor is the cooler air, machiam like air. The other thing i can think of is, creepy crawlies can't fly that high up i hope, hahaha. wow so heng still can get mid floor very heng leh! I wanted 5 room but all left 2nd floor, so sad...

btw...does anyone know what is the "U-save rebate" thingy in the GST offset package? is it for our PUB bills or smthing? And huh, besides having to pay for property tax, conservancy fees and TV license fees, any idea wad other horrible fees we have to pay?? Any idea how much is the estimated property tax per year for EA and TY license fee?
 

monkie

New Member
hi falling flakes...
creepy crawlies...hmmm..they take lift to your house lor..hahaha
property tax mean CC&S? tot only private property need pay property tax? our house is leases leh...

for the fees we are going to pay..average is $250 per mth..si bay siong.
 

fallingflakes

New Member
eh CC&S is not property tax...i always call it "fees we pay to pay to town council to clear our rubbish and general maintenance" haha. Errm, as far as i know every household need to pay property tax lor. For EA i think $300-$500 or is it "$500-$800"?? Haiz.
