Fantastic 8kw air conditioning unit

We bought this split system air conditioner a year ago as we were advised we would need a powerful 8kw system due to wanting just one unit for the entire house and also having a high peaked ceiling in our open plan living area. Our house is overall fairly small (2 bed, 2 bath, office, laundry, and open plan living area) but with our high peaked ceiling, a standard smaller unit was definitely not going to be sufficient during the humid hot summers or chilly winters we get.
This air conditioner is perfect! It has all the features we expect, the controller is simple to use, and most importantly it doesn’t take long to cool or heat the house to a comfortable level.
It costs us around $40/month to run, using it for around an hour in the mornings and 1-3 hours at night during summer & winter.

Great value, quiet

I bought this model about 6 months ago for my 3 bedroom investment property – great look (minimal facing), cools all main areas in the townhouse efficiently & the system is quiet enough to not disturb neighbours. Happy so far, scored a great price through powerland but installer said these parts run out quicker than a comparable brand so I’m hoping I won’t need them!

New airconditioner

We are very happy with the new airconditioner installed in our bedroom. Temperature can easily be set and its cooling and heating performance are very good. It is a quiet unit I would say. Installation was done by professionals but it didn’t take long either. Overall, it’s worth buying this unit.
