Fugitsu are rubbish
25 years in the iindustry, have a ducted fugitsu in my home. The units are absolute rubbish. Outside noise levels are far beyond the stated limit after 2 years.
Control logic is rubbish leading to excessive power use and poor performance. Replacement parts are over priced and generally not available. It's cheaper to replace an entire outdoor unit than repair. But fugitsu won't sell you a single outdoor unit unlike EVERY OTHER MANUFACTURER! Low budget over priced rubbish.
Awesome Product for Heating and cooling your house.
We got this installed a few months ago, due to our old System being 35 years old and needed replacing. This system is so quiet which we love. You can’t even hear it’s on. It’s funny because you go outside and everyone else’s (neighbours) are so loud. The house and Rooms heat up really quickly as well,which we love. I would definitely recommend this product for any residence or business.
This is our second Fujitsu ducted system and the best one Has multiple zones and the ability to govern the amount of cooling going to each Is fully programmable and very quiet as well Both have been installed in new houses which allows for a better install to suit the owner.
ARTG30, so far so good
Had this installed November 2012 after purchasing from Mannix TTP SA, to date it has performed well. I was sceptical this unit could cool and heat my home as I believe it is the entry level of these and do not consider my 1977 home to be the most energy efficient, the installer did their calculations and advised it would be suitable and to my surprise it has performed above my expectations, especially heating wise.
I did upgrade to 5 zones (3 bed home) which makes controlling the temperatures within the home more manageable, this will come d...own to personal preference though. It is coupled to a metalflex zone controller which works well also. One complaint is that the Fujitsu wall controller is not backlit so late night adjustments require the room light to be turned on to see what your doing, this may sound trivial but given the zone controller has this, perhaps Fujitsu should consider this also. The outdoor unit is quite large (tall) but very quiet so should be good if your neighbour is a bit of a whinger about noise etc, the indoor unit is to me reasonably quiet and for most wont be intrusive. It has an Eco mode which is meant to save your money and admittedly I did not receive any nasty surprises in the mail from the summer period, there is also an on and off timer and other useful functions to play with. Note when using the heating setting it does not start up straight away, it can take up to 4-5 min to begin heating and this is mentioned in the instructions. In regards to Fujitsu, I took advantage of their free BBQ promo and I did what was asked by them to redeem it and to my surprise received a good quality Beefeater BBQ in the stated time frame.
