Key Features

Versatile Installation

Can be recessed inside a wall at floor level or suspended from the ceiling. Floor level is recommended for units that are mainly used for heating operation.

Comfort Maintenance

Home Leave Operation stops a room from becoming too hot or cold while you are sleeping or not at home. This means the indoor temperature will quickly return to your preferred setting.

Quiet Operation

Stream fan technology facilitates quiet operations.


The DC fan motor, wide sirocco fan, and large heat exchanger combine for greater airflow and quiet operation.

Easy to Clean

The flat side and lower surfaces make it easy to wipe dust off.

Good for Restaurants

The air suction grille uses oil-resistant plastic, making it ideal for restaurants and similar environments.

Easy Maintenance Access

Wiring and internal servicing can be done from under the unit.

Costs a lot but no regrets

I went with the 7.1KW and it ended up costing me a just under $5k installed, which definitely hurt, but after 12 months of living with it I wouldn’t hesitate to make the same decision again.

Warm house when I get up.
Warm house when I get home from work.
The house isn’t covered in dust from the fire. I also no longer need to vacuum every second day because of all the crap dropped from the firewood I was constantly bringing inside.
More room in the garage now the woodpile has gone.
Looks pretty nice.
I’ve paired it with a Sensibo Sky so I can control it from my phone whilst I’m on my way home and it’s worked seamlessly.

Could not be better

I now have six of these units installed in my country Victoria home (Living areas x 2, bedrooms x 4). I replaced three older units and was so happy with them that I added three more.

They have kept the place warm and cool now for 3 summers and winters without any problems. They are very quiet and very powerful. The dry cooling and moist heating are just the best.

Power consumption is SO low, I can leave one on all night in the bedroom and it will only have used 1-2Kwh (each unit has a built in power meter so you can see what has been used).

A little noisier than expected

Cools my 2-bedroom unit very well and also heats it satisfactorily but mainly only when on 25 degrees. I was told 23 degrees is the expected norm for economical heating.
