Is a nightmare
Bonair E/Ducted AC ( BONAIRE INTEGRA VSL 75 GY - with 8 outlets) is a nightmare – we purchased a brand new unit in February 2007 , from an agent stationed close to Willetton Bunnings. In the same year (boxing day - after coming home from a brief holiday in Albany) it did not function. With great difficulty we managed to stay in on that particular day (where the highest temperature was recorded) and when we phoned the agent on the following day , we could not believe what they said. They said that their service persons were busy till m...id January and that they can’t send anyone to check the defect until then. We could not get outside help as it was under warranty and had to wait till mid January 2008 to get it fixed. For the last 7 years, we got it serviced annually through the Agent ( twice) . As the agent’s charges were expensive, we got it serviced through outside service personnel annually and we also got outside service personnel to attend to regular defects. Every summer this unit has come up with a problem and now in November 2013, the electrical circuit panel burned out and had to be replaced. For the last three years we had to replace the water pump, dump valve (couple of times) and last year the fan blades fell down and we had to replace the fan blades. We would not recommend this unit to anybody. when it is working Every year come up with a problem
bonaire integra air con
cooling....not too bad, but noisy,cheap nasty parts.When you think they only get used part time for 3 or 4 months of the year, you would expect better longevity of components.Water flooding from unit (dump valve) what a joke,try and replace filter pads what a trial (rusted washers ,nuts and broken spigots) constant fear of unit catching fire. But i suppose you have to expect this from an old unit. $2500 (unit only) 6years ago.You work it out how much work this unit has really done.
