Don't buy a house with Bonaire installed

published

We bought a house with Bonaire heating system installed. It was a 2 year old system and it stopped working with 'Error Code 39: Ground Fault Lockout 2'. Bonaire refused any warranty claims as they mentioned that the warranty is only for the original buyers. They also never showed up after repeated calls and even us paying for their visit. Imagine buying a house with Bonaire system installed which stops working and they refused to fix the issue! It is hell. Don't buy Bonaire either if you are building a property for yourself or for investment becuase sooner or later buyers will recognise that a Bonaire system will have no warranty cover for them and is a huge risk for them as it will stop working.

Excellent!!! Best ever upgrade

published

We had an old Bonaire that WAS GREAT BUT got replaced with a Pinnacle 220 when a tree fell on my home. The Humidity control feature of the Pinnacle sorted out the short coming of the evaporative cooler that did not hold cooling on humid days. We will NEVER need air conditioning that I considered getting before. The Pinnacle is just all round perfect. It does the job all year round to perfection. Very very happy with it :)

Great so far

published

Good unit so far. My first evaporative cooler so had nothing to measure it against.
Chose Bonaire as purchased through local electricity provider on very good terms. Had my eye on breezair or braemar but a grand dearer .
Would love to test drive a breezair, but how?
Got the Pinnacle 180 version, up from the 160 quoted me based on handy review comments online.
Only could get a 10°c difference on a 38°c day, was hoping for more. However, using the Delta T temp method from BOM provided by another good reviewer on this forum is a handy tip to know, but still struggling to get down to that ideal temp. First season in, still evaluating.

Unbelievable difference to temperature in home 40 degrees outside 22 Degrees inside all day long

published

A powerful product that on first use in early January we new we had made the right choice. Even cooking a roast on a hot day is no issue. I was fortunate to talk with a person within Bonaire 2 years ago and remembered how highly he spoke of the then new product. Snowman installed exactly one week after our initial meeting and Quote. The team were very professional and cleaned up after installation. I would highly recommend the Bonaire PEL200 Evaporative Aircondioner and Snowman

Very Good

published

Our last Bonaire VSL-72 was installed in 1998 and only now has been replaced with a top of range Bonaire PEH220 Pinnacle. We purchased the PEH220 Pinnacle given it had the highest power output and 95% of the 1200 watt power output of our past VSL-72. The PEH220 remote has multi function buttons compared to the VSL-72 remote, therefore will take a little getting use to.

The PEH220 model has less maintenance and some additional features such as humidity control and water decalcification and no seasonal maintenance.

The Store provided a baffle that is intended to control cold air draughts entering via ceiling ducts, but it only minimises draugjts and does not totally eliminates draughtss.

We also liked the 7 year warranty
