BEST PLACE TO PURCHASE HOME AIR CON UNITS
« on: July 03, 2014, 01:42:26 PM »
Hi there,

Would appreciate a 'Heads Up' on where currently around the Korat area where the best outlets would be to purchase a couple of home Air Con systems.

Any info on Discounts for cash or techniques to get the hottest deal would be greatly appreciated too.

Rgds :)

Hi there. There are so many places to go and it all depends on what's on sale etc.  Some of the independent shops are pretty good.  You need to check on installation too as some places do better installs than others.  I use one that's on the road that runs behind the Sima Thani hotel almost across just past the 7-11 and on the right as you head to the bypass road.  Their number is 044-351395 (They sell all brands).  I can't think of the name but they are very good and also do electrical work.  They were able to hide all my AC compressors around my house so that they are not visible from the road or even the side of the house except for one...and I have Five AC units in my home. t really detracts from a house if you have AC compressors hanging off the sides of the house etc.  Looking at the front and side of my house you would never know it's fully AC'd. <-- New word.  The back of my house is all blocked so no one can see where they really are.  These guys are good and also do fantastic electrical work.  Give them a call. 

Other places to check are. 

Thaifa
Home-Pro
Global House

Hey thanks BF,

Went to visit HomePro yesterday at The Mall... But it has gone!

Can any one kindly advise where one can now locate a HomePro in Korat?

Hi Guys,
 
Would appreciate any updates ( if there are any to offer! ) on today the best place(s) to purchase Home Air Con units from?

Have been to Thai Fa, Home Pro Living Mall and Global.
 
Have any new places opened since Index Living Mall??
 
We have to make the decision on which Brand of Air Con ( we will require 3 x Units ) and which company to purchase from in 2 weeks time!

Thanks in advance...

Buffy I would just recommend getting what you feel is the best quality even if you pay a bit extra for it.
My Mitsubishi 'Mr Slim' are excellent, quiet and efficient. I have one Samsung that I don't rate as highly.
Tai Fah City (not Universe) in Chompol Rd are great IMO, very high quality of fitting and good after sales service. The Boss and Daughter speak English and are glad to help.
Good Luck.

Hey Roger,
 
Thanx for taking the time to reply.  Yes, when we went into Tai Fa they promoted the Mitsi as the best of all the Vendors......

Tai-Fah will often discount items if you pay in cash.


Home Pro (Power Mall) does this too.  I was there about two weeks ago looking at another HD TV for my Master Bedroom.  The 42" HD LED is nice, but not quite big enough for me after watching TV on the 55" downstairs.  I said what the hell, bought the latest 65" LG Ultra HD 4K TV and a second Samsung home theater surround.  The  Samsung home theater is amazing and I was so impressed with the one in my living room, I bought another for the Bedroom. 

The 65" I was looking at had a sticker price of 139,000 Baht and the Samsung Home Theater 17,900 baht.  I got every thing all together for 103,000 baht!  That's a huge discount.  When I first bought the first Samsung home theater, they were running a promotion on it, 4,500 discount.  Well, even though that promotion ended, they still extended it to me on the second one.  Talk about happy.  The wall mount for the TV was a little pricey though....3,000 baht.  Installation was free and the techs set up every thing perfectly. 

Power Mall is the shop on the first floor and I think they basically rent a space in Home Pro if not mistaken.  These guys are good when it comes to the Media stuff and I would recommend them to anyone....not just for the prices, but the overall service satisfaction.

Hey BF - that's a high powered kit for the bedroom !!
And as you say, that is a huge discount - well done.
Mmmm - a 65 inch TV in the bedroom - just what are you watching ?
So you think I should update my old 20 inch black and white TV then.
Unlike you, I was around when colour TV was first launched - it was a stunning event.
But I could never have envisaged a 65 inch TV anywhere let alone in a bedroom.
Last time I looked 12 inches was a foot, so you have a 5 foot plus TV by the dressing table.
Amazing technology.

Hi Roger,

My wife and I watch many things :)  It's mounted on the wall at a perfect level.  The surround sound home theater is around 1000 watts.  There is a 1200 watt model but 1000 watts is plenty.  Also, the rear speakers are wireless.  I have a separate controller box behind the bed which transmits to the main box up front.  Wireless is a bit misleading with surround systems because the front speakers are still wired, and so are the back speakers, but the back speakers are wired to the second box.  Still, it's a nice setup.  These home theater systems also include built in apps like youtube, web browser, etc.

Hey Guys,

Thanks very much for all your inputs.

Job now done > 3 x Air Con units purchased very happily from 'Thai Fa' near Yamo.

Dealing with the sales people at Thai Fa was really easy, their product knowledge was 1st class.
 
Although installation is not until May 2015 we are very happy having dealt with them.

Also, yes we did shop around.  Du Home and Pro Home were also both visited.
 
Du Home was a 'No Go' just by the stock they had and the sales people who had no product knowledge.

Pro Home had good stock and OK sales people - they quoted 80,000 Baht ( 2 x LG Inverter and 1x Samsung )

Thai Fa quoted the same and...... our price..... ( still cannot believe it!....... ) ........ 60,000 Baht

Awesome bro!  Glad it worked out for ya. :)  I'm going to be upgrading my master bedroom AC.  12,000 btu just doesn't cut it quite enough.  I think I'm going to go with one of those new inverter type, 18,000 btu.

BF. Probably you need a bigger A/C because the BIG TV is heating the room up too much. ATB.

We often visit Du Home, and it is our go-to store for home and garden stuff. We also enjoy eating lunch there.

That said, I am always amazing at the sheer number of employees, and also by the fact that very few know anything about anything there. When my sister-in-law goes with us, she will often ask other shoppers for help.

Hi AL,

Yes agree with what you say about Du Home - You cannot go past their prices and massive selection on many items.
 
It also is our 'local' now along with Home Pro.

Had never yet discovered that they do food there!  Guess I know now ;)

They have a food hall there at the end of the car park where the toilets are.

When you get inside the store they put your wifes handbag and lock it in a plastic case and they have the key, HA! HA! then the phone rings and you can't get at it. :-[

I will say for electrics there is good selection, no the staff don't have any idea.

I purchased a folding chair there once,they charged for 2 chairs, took us over an hour to get a refund due to there mistake.

Great store if you have a couple of hours spare to browse.
