Worst System we have had. as soon as it rains the A/C blows the power. for 8 years


Air Conditioning Headquaters, previously Advanced Hotwater & Air installed the Bonaire Integra VSL75
and IMMEDIATELY took no responsibility for any problems. Since then there was a new motor installed and now the same problem still arises as soon as it rains. The electrician has stated that it is a fault with the air conditioner and the contractors have not been able to repair it.

Purchased in October 2012 for A$3,200.00.

Rubbish; constantly replacing parts


We have a Bonaire Integra VSL75 version 1; each season we have to replace something on it; water pump, fan motor, solenoid valve, dump valve... really not good enough. However, when it’s working it does a really good job in cooling our large house (240m2 of living). Would not recommend...

Don't waste your money. These units are rubbish!


The unit installed was noisy and did not deliver any cool air.
Bonaire customer service was non-existent.
Even after we managed to get their service technician to come out. The unit was quieter for about 15 minutes but still delivered only extra humidity but no cool air.
In the end we had it replaced with another brand at our own cost and now we are cool in summer.
Bonaire is a complete waste of money.

Early days


Although the installers caused damage to the ceiling. I'm quite impressed so far. Be warned that when you first turn it on, it smells like you're using an angle grinder inside with a burning metal smell. Now four days later it smells like an old mans urine as the intensity of the smell decreases. I'm told the smell is coursed by something that is used on the pads and is normal. As for the cooling itself... quite good, it cools quickly an efficiently. It pretty quiet compared to my previous 20 year old swampy. It came with a RF remote and is pretty user friendly, apparently the remote can also operate a Bonaire heater if I need to replace the heater at some stage which is cool. So far quite happy.

Poor qualiy and unreliable


Purchased 2007, breaks down every summer. Lucky for extended warranty but does not make up for the hassle breaking down when you need it most then waiting approx 1 week to be attended. Replaced nearly all parts, sorry I will have now the fan motor has just gone outside of warranty.Not going to repair it, going to have it replaced with a Braemar LCB550. Not going thru this every summer any more. What wasteful & costly exercise based on Bonaire so called reputation & quality.

Waste of money


We have been in our new home for 7 years now and have had repairs to the air con and heater every year the weather seal stopped working 3 years ago we have had birds nesting in the unit and a plaque of moths always over the hot period and holidays and we then have to wait for them to return to work and in the meantime we are enduring the hot weather without the cooler this is the time we need it.

Integra VSL75

The unit is about 10 years old. Had a new motor fitted about a year ago. Unit runs quite ok for about an hour and then shuts itself down although controller indicates that it's running. Fan speed on max (not boost) or one down from max. Seems to be going out on overload or overtem. Weather has been hot - about 35 deg. but that's what it's for isn't it. Does anybody know lightly cause. Many thanks, Peter.

1 answer

The cause is the manufacturer.
