Can’t fault it

I inherited this when I moved in recently – it is quiet with only the noise of air moving, rather than machinery, and one unit does the whole bottom floor, up the stairs and the landing upstairs (but not the bedrooms), so I am happy with the performance. The remote (wall mounted) has a lot of settings on it, but easy enough to get the basic settings you need done – I need to look at the manual to do automatic timings etc. all the fancy stuff.

good a/c

Got it installed in the last summer and since then it’s working as expected. Nothing much really stands out. Noise level is okay. Cool down the room really quick (note: It’s only a 3*3m*m small bedroom).

Super quiet and works fast

I leave the unit on auto all day in winter. The unit’s in my bedroom. It’s super quiet. Does a great job of cooling the room on hot days too. We have 4 units in our townhouse.
