short lived and messy to remove = not good value
good while running ,i had one early mishap when mice got into the external unit and short circuited the wiring [why anyone would manufacture something vulnerable to this is beyond me, i can only consider that fujitsu consider these to be very disposable. i live alone ,so this unit has not had a great deal of use, it died yesterday, cost 180.00 dollars for a refrigerant guy to tell me that the main circuit board has burnt out, as is a minor one also the fan motor has gone the same way. this is just in the external unit. he gave up then and told ...me' not worth fixing'. insurance tell me that they don't want to know about it. 3000.00 plus to replace. and i am not going there again. so considering cost of unit, running costs, life of unit, not good value and disappointing when i thought that i was buying a quality product. i am left going into winter with no heating.. oh, and expensive to have' decommissioned ,not to mention the brickwork...
Good product with strong fan
This review is for the Fujitsu Spilt System Air Conditioner for indoor unit model ASTG30LF. The outdoor model is 8 KW cooling and 9 KW heating.
I like this product but I have to say that the main reason for buying this is that I need it for strong heat during the winter in a large living room area or open floor plan. This unit operates with an Inverter and the heating is a 'pump & heat' action.
The fan can also operate on Auto setting for economy but this reduces the fan speed to Low. There is also Quiet fan setting and this particular ...setting is a super quiet fan speed and very Low. I keep in mind that a very High fan speed setting of the Indoor unit is not quiet. The Outdoor unit is beside the window and is quiet. I hear a click sound now and then as the unit adjusts it self but that small click sound is not loud and not a problem to myself. I wanted to be sure that the outdoor unit is also not going to disturb my next door neighbour with noise - So no problems there. I had this air conditioner installed several days ago by a suggested qualified installer by Fujitsu. So yesterday I tested the Heat setting at 25ºC with the fan setting on High. And wow, this does push out heat with a powerful fan. The heat is nearly hot and it does produce the heat. So I've also tried the cooling setting with the fan set on High and it is also powerful. It is important to note that High fan speed is not available on all Heat or Cool settings of this unit but its sufficient for my needs. • The cooling and heating of most air conditioners is relative to the outside temperatures. Most Air Conditioning units such as split systems will operate on their own cycles in weather conditions as not to overheat the unit or so it operates effectively. Or if it is very cold outside, the unit will take a while to reach the desired indoor temperature setting.
