Key Features

Draft-less Air Distribution

The horizontal blow mode supplies airflow horizontally rather than bringing cooled/warmed air directly to occupants thus preventing discomfort due to excessive cooling or direct exposing of occupants to the air blow.

Four Way Flow

It’s possible to set the air direction four different ways using a wired remote controller or manually.


The isee sensor controls the temperature difference at the top and bottom in a room by checking the floor temperature, allowing for automatic comfort.

Improved Air Flow

A wide shaped air outlet enables the discharge air to reach a wider area, with the fan speed being decreased by 20%.

Outside Air Intake

Units are equipped with a knockout hole that can enable the induction of fresh outside-air.

Air Speed Adjustment

This setting automatically matches the air speed to the room environment. When the room temperature reaches the desired setting, the airflow speed is decreased automatically for stable comfortable in either heating or cooling operations.

Great Aircon Unit

We’ve had our airconditioning unit for almost 3 years now and it’s been wonderful. We’ve had no issues with it at all. The heat and aircon work really well. The unit is sleek and looks great on our wall. I have no hesitation recommending this product. We bought both a 2.5 and 3.5kw units.

No problems with our 3 aircon units after 6+ years of use

We’ve had our three Mitsubishi Electric reverse cycle air con units for about 6 years in our house. And none of them have skipped a beat yet. We clean the filters ourselves annually. Otherwise though, they have been maintenance free. We love our air-con units, and hope to have at least another 5 years incident-free use. The price was very fair too, and they came with free eftpos cards of about $100 each.

This air conditioning unit is very good and works well. It has a good remote control, and the display on the remote is easy to understand. Its cooling and heating are satisfactory. This is an air conditioner with superior performance. That’s great. Silent effect is very good, no sound when you sleep at night, the cooling speed is fast, and the room temperature quickly reaches the set temperature. I will not hesitate to recommend this product to any potential buyers.
