This Unit Is Excellent

The Evaporative unit was installed in November 2017 and has been faultless. Last week outside temperature 41 degrees and the unit kept the house around 26-27 degrees. I did run the unit from the morning before things got really hot. Highly recommend this unit. Installed by All Points Airconditioning Wagga Wagga.

Cool but a little noisy

Installed last summer, feel Cool enough. 6 outlet to all rooms. The controller looks great, color lcd touch screen.

but a little bit too noisy, can be hear in main bedroom. Even the water pump noise can be hear.
Maybe it is the problem with the installation job I think, will check next year when using.

Quality Units

I have been working on and installing evap air cons for more than a decade. I have no deal happening with any company and are happy to put on any brand a customer wants. I believe the Braemar is the best value for money. Just compare the control board and pump to the other brands. Many of the complaints here relate to poor installs or the wrong size unit being chosen. I live in Perth and can say the five year warranty is upheld in a very professional manor. Seely International, who manufacture these units, has spent alot of time and money ironing out problems which have existed within their air cons. Unlike many other companies. I have never had a customer say they aren’t happy with them. In fact some customers have called months later thanking me for my advice. I can only speak from a Perth perspective.
