Key Features

Multi-Unit Connection

This series can connect to 2-3 units maximum, depending on kw. This is ideal for space saving for shops with limited outdoor areas.

Individual Controls

Each indoor unit can have a separate control so, for example, rooms who might get the sun at different times can be set at different temperatures by the person in that room.

Corrosion Resistant Materials

Durability is improved with specially formulated layers to protect the aluminium section from harsh Australian weather.

Humidity Protections

A protective coating on the circuit board to ensure longevity and durability.

Inverter Technology

An inverter control minimises electricity loss while boosting efficiency at the same time. This allows the unit to reach peak temperatures quickly.

Wide Operation Range

Units can operate in a wide range of outdoor temperatures, allowing for installation in areas where the weather can reach extremes.

Jet Engine Technology

The fan blade design in split systems has been based around jet engines to deliver a more even air flow.

3.5 MHI Air conditioner

The product does all we ask of it – giving us lovely cool air in summer and warm air in winter. It is a hassle free product we are happy with.

Avanti 2.5kW - Great A/C unit

Warranty Claim handled brilliantly

My 4 year old A/C went faulty on a Sunday Night. My unit was still under 5 year warranty so lodged the Claim via the online Web form that evening with MHI. A Gentleman called Chris called from MHI called Monday morning and stepped me through a couple of trouble shooting tips but sadly the unit still came back with error messages. He then advised my claim would be passed through to the local Service Agent in Bendigo. Thursday the Service agent called and arranged a time to come and inspect the Unit (which was a Saturday). Monday I was informed the Motherboard was Faulty and the part had been ordered and could take 7 to 10 working days to arrive in Bendigo (kinda normal if you don’t live in the Metro area). Friday I was called and advised the part had arrived and we arranged
