got that device July 2019. Working fine for heating and cooling. Takes ~5 minutes to get started,...
Question though: Last year, when we turn on heating, there was quite a bit for water coming out of the outside unit. We had the installer come back to attach a pipe so water is not running down the external wall.
This year, we're heating quite a bit and so far,... no water whatsoever!
Is there supposed to be constantly condense water from the outside unit in heating mode? Again, there's nothing so far, even when heating all day.
Just checking if that's fine as such, or if the pipe might be blocked causing a (long term) damage?
I have had this unit for just over 5 years and have noticed how noisy it is compared with other brand air conditioners that I have had installed in other rooms. Unfortunately, I had this fitted in our bedroom and find it unsuitable for a quiet environment with a 'ticking' sound when the thermostat cuts in and the fan stops.
Purchased in September 2014 for A$1,700.00.
Have installed these in our last two houses and looking to use them again in the next!
We have owned 4 of these designer split systems in our last 2 homes. Both places we had a 5kw and 2.5kw units.
Their performance has been excellent! Even on the hottest summer days we have had running the two units in our home have kept it cool.
We have never had an issue with the units and are constantly being used. We no longer use Gas ducted heating because these units perform so well.
We just bought our next new home and I'm seriously thinking of buying these again.
Only down side is that in the past 6 years this unit hasn't advanced. Many of the other competitors now offer wifi conectivity. It will be out of the Fujitsu Designer range or the Daikin Zena ranges.
Biggest waste of money
Had it for 5 years and had to get it repaired twice in that time. It’s now a month out of warranty and it’s not working again!!!
I just got repair quote from Fujitsu for $834.17 (turns out that the coil is now broken)!!!
I’ve hardly been able to use it in the time I have had it due to issues, so I definitely would NOT recommend this product if you want something long lasting (even if it does look nice).
Bought this about 6 months after comparing many and went against a few suggestions due to its sleek design.But proved to be very ineffective.Doesnt cool as sold.Using it for a small 1 bedroom apartment yet I have to use a cooler together with the air conditioner to help cool.Wouldnt suggest this sleek AC.

A little noisy but does the job
I bought it from Bing Lee during their 20% off Ebay sale and Fujitsu was also running $150 cashback promo so the total price came to $409.20.
The looks have been great but it's bit noisy when warming up. Overall I am pleased with the product, especially the price I paid for a known brand.
My first air cond
This air conditioning is my first air cond that I ever have, I cannot remember how long ago but i recommend to anyone thinking of buy a this brand you cannot get it wrong.
Purchased in February 2012.

Looks beautiful but a little noisy
We have installed four of these Designer series split systems in the bedrooms of one of our properties. They look stunning - sit close to the wall, and the white on the front panel is a pure white (not an off-white like some cheaper brands). They heat and cool effectively and seem to be quite energy efficient.
The indoor units can be noisy when the fan is on high, which might be a concern in bedrooms for light sleepers. We also have Fujitsu Lifestyle series units in another property and they are far quieter.
I would recommend these units for spaces that need something that looks good like small- to medium-sized living areas or a study, but I wouldn't install them in a bedroom again.
Heat/cools well. Loud when heating. Front panel lift action failed for me too.
Heating and cooling works great for bedrooms. Internal unit is noisy, Fujitsu have advised the noise is normal, I also have other Fujitsu models which make no noise hmmm. Front panel lift action broke after a year see: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XKiO2LCIduQ. I've since discovered the broken front panel is a common issue. Remote control is NOT backlit which is not ideal when you have kids.
Unit is cosmetically quite attractive.
Works well, A bit Noisy
The Fujitsu Designer air conditioner has been a great addition for the household. It heats up the room and controls the temperature quite well and quite quickly. The machine can get noisy though when warming up and operate at high temperatures. Overall I am pleased with the product, especially if you can get it on sale.
Heats and cools brilliantly. Super quiet, even on high though I recommend leaving it around 22 degrees on low as this is the most cost efficient way to heat or cool. (Just change the mode). Easy to use controls. Looks good on the wall too. Haven't needed to have it serviced yet!
It works but is not great.
My husband, and AC engineer, fitted this unit into our bedroom. It looks nice and neat when not in use but the outdoor unit is quite noisy when it runs. The door lifts up and opens when in use and, although a nice touch, our has broken. The lifting wheel is made of plastic and not sufficient to lift the door time after time.
nice looking, quiet and efficient.
Nothing tricky but I think the aesthetic design and the additional efficiency make it well worth it. We put one of these in each of the bed rooms and I have nothing at all bad to report. I think a fixed wall mounted control might be a nice option instead of the remote that tends to walk (I have small children) but that's not a complaint. I like them.
Perfect product, so quiet, can’t live without it.
we bought this machine last year , it was installed beautifully, and the machine itself work beautifully as well, very quiet, very smooth, and most of all , very energy saving, the machine is easy to use ,once you set up your liking, all you need just one press. Highly recommended.

Ecxcellent Fujitsu split system
Very happy overall and found slightly better with cooling compared to heating and unit very quite. Installation seems quite simple and completed in 2-3 hours time by technician and we like this unit as quite easy to use for controlling temperatures and change settings to different modes as required with weather conditions and finding economical with power usage compared to existing other split air conditioning units.
5kw unit's performance is quiet, need to be outside to hear it work and even then you have to listen hard. Installation was done in a very efficient manner and minimal disruption to home. Installer easily explained settings on remote and now would not be without it. would certainly recommend installer as a great outfit
We've had our unit for the last 2 years. We've had no reliability issues at all.
The unit is fairly quiet, both inside and outside where the compressor lives. In terms of functionality it offers fairly standard functionality and is very similar to its competitors.
The key highlight of this air con are its handsome looks. The unit has a front fascia which is seamless when the air-con is OFF, but moves up to expose the grille when the air-con is switched ON. It carries a minimalist look.
In summary, no reliability issues to date, solid and relatively quiet unit that looks the part in any modern setting.
Looks great with sliding front facia
Easy to use remote cooling and heat both work great has a power option that blasts out the air to cool or heat room very quickly
Cools a 5 x 6 m room quite easy and keeps it at temp no drama would recommend
We got the 2.5kw and 5kw models one for the bedroom and one for the lounge room, the 5kw is a fair bit quieter than the 2.5kw, they both are reasonably quiet, however we can just hear the 2.5kw compressor running opposite a brick veneer wall, the 5kw is practically not audible through the wall. we got these ones due to the energy rating a price was a bit cheaper than the others. they do not come with plumbing equipment for gas, some other brands might come with them, not a big deal though unless you were going to DIY install perhaps go with a brand that has the tubes supplied, however you may as well just pay someone the 500 bucks or so each that there is to install these units, saves you the hassle...
Pretty happy with the unit. Heating a 2brm unit and it does a good job even though it's a decent sized area. Very quiet too. Only problem I find is the unit is mounted high on the wall and if you are sitting on the lounge you feel a cool draft even thought it is set to heat. Sometimes it feels warmer then other times even though it is set at same temp
Questions & Answers
I have just put every thing back after having cleaned the filters and the unit will go hot the panel does not lift up and open.what should I do?
Hi Lani, can you please contact our technical support team on 1300 364 484 and they will talk you through fixing this up. Thanks
How long should it take for the system to blow cold air on Cool at 20
Hi Rochelle, This depends on lots of factors including how hot it is outside, how big the room is you are trying to cool, what size and type of air conditioner you have if your filters are clean, is your ceiling insulated, do you windows face west.
If you would like to discuss this with one of our technicians please call us on 1300 364 484.
These units look great. I am thinking of buying one.
Can you plse advise me what is the longest pipe run I can have between the internal unit on the wall and the outdoor compressor please?? And who supplies the longer piping please??
HI Moohead, Thank you for your question, please be advised the Fujitsu Air Conditioning unit doesn't come with piping, this will be provided by the installer. The minimum piping required is 3m and the maximum is 20m. There is sufficient refrigerant to cover 20m inside the condensor.
Hi Moohead, if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to let us know and we will do our best to help. Alternatively you can also always call our technical support team who will happily discuss any questions Tel: 1300 364 484.
