Key Features

Automatic Diagnostics

An internal microcomputer runs an automatic diagnostic assessment of the unit. This helps technicians identify what has gone wrong and where.

Leave Function

Enabled using an RC-EX3 wired controller, the unit can maintain a moderate indoor temperature even with no one occupying the room. This avoids extremely hot or cool temperatures and damage.

Filter Notification

An alert comes on when filters need to be cleaned.

Motion Sensor

Inbuilt sensors can read how the room is occupied and adjusts temperatures accordingly.

Energy Saving Features

Available using an RC-EX3 wired controller, users can program a preferred set temperature. The unit will then return to this temperature each time it is switched on.

Comfort Features

A 15 minute high power operation can heat or cool your space quickly, before returning to normal operation. This would be handy after a long weekend when the system has been turned off.

Works well hot or cold

The unit does its job very well in both hot and cold conditions. It is also very quiet and the controls are reasonably easy to operate. I will have no hesitation in acquiring another similar unit to cover the rest of our property.

Pretty Good

Quick installation. Got one of these bad boys this year and kept me cool in summer and has never failed to keep me warm in winter. However, its long start-up time for heating is a possible detriment. Nonetheless, great product, many features, easy to use, quiet and aesthetically pleasing. 8/10

We are very, very happy with it. It is fast and effective with both the heating and cooling. We have open living and it does not take long for the large area to warm up.
