Silent and Efficient - well worth the upgrade

I purchased the silver MSZ-EF from Harvey Norman for a good price. Their recommended installer came out on a public holiday and installed the unit at no extra charge. I bought this unit to replace a 15-year-old Electrolux Kelvinator model that sounded like a jumbo jet. The new Mitsubishi is so quiet, that even on High fan speed it doesn’t require turning the TV volume up. It is audible on the highest setting, but only slightly louder than the ceiling fan it shares our living room with. Lower speeds it is completely inaudible. The silver unit looks absolutely stunning and is seriously worth considering if your wall is something other than white. Coming from a non inverter system it surprised me to learn that inverters cannot immediately start at 100% power, and need to “warm up” to their maximum capacity, which seems to be about 2-3 minutes.

This air conditioner was great, however really loud but will definitely continue to use it as it’s very cold and keeps me cold in the summer, I love how easy it is to use and the installation was also simple. I will definitely recommend this air con and will let my friends know.

Works great in the bedroom
The system and remote control is easy to use, so u can pre-set times and to turn on and off as u wish.
This split system works great for the average size bedroom that’s for sure.

Does the job fairly well, cooled the room on a hot summer day set to 23. Power consumption is excellent. Getting the right setting is a bit finicky and if fan set to Auto it’s way too slow. Better to be set manually. Didn’t try heating as of yet.
