Worst experience Brand new unit faulty
Worst experience buying Kelvinator, air conditioning faulty from brand new installed, zero utilisation, nightmare just begin. Warranty requested in progress 2 months and on going.. 3 times technician came and 4th times coming now waiting for "Parts" that took 2 weeks to arrive..
Purchased in December 2020.
Quiet & Efficient
The A/C does well. Had this blasting through a 39 degree day in Melbourne. Very efficent and quiet. Cooled a living area which is approx 6x5 in no time. The heating is also very effective.
Purchased in December 2020 for $999.00.
12 months into ownership of this unit and we are more than happy with it.
Very quiet, looks good, and cools / heats our large main bedroom with ease.
If I ever need to purchase another reverse cycle, I'll get a Kelvinator again no questions asked. Great bang for buck.
Bought this unit at Christmas on recommendation by Harvey Norman Salesmen. So far so good, great for my small area. The machine is quiet, heats n cools quickly. Only thing is I find the remote unresponsive at Times, e.g I will turn aircon on and it will turn on then straight off again.
Thanks for the cash back offer. Great value. Same or more features than other expensive models. Happy with the purchase and installation. Definitely recommend this product. Get during cash back period for additional savings.

Cash back failure
On 1/6/18 we bought this air conditioner with the promise of $100 cash back. Alas, still haven’t receive it despite details being registered shortly after purchase. Have spent much time on the phone to you on many occasions to sort this out, as well as emails to you, but still no success. we have been told that our bank acc. details are invalid. We have changed them 3 times now to different bank accounts. We have also spent quite some time talking to the retail outlet where we purchased the unit and they have also contacted you and were given reassurances from you.
Please let me know what more we can do. Have been told it will take 6-8 weeks many times now. Still no cash back. What is going on?

Junk - Came with my brand new home and now 3 dead
This is something i overlooked when i built my brand new home, the builder installed Kelvinator. The AC are less then a year old and now 3 of the 8 AC have died. I expected this because I've had previous nightmare Kelvinator AC and it appears not much have changed. Kelvinator warranty is efficient enough to attend but their technicians in the top end are absolutely useless, nothing but excuses. Totally avoid this brand.
Dont bother contacting me. After a beef with the builder they have agreed to exchange these junk AC units with a reputable alternative.

Efficient airconditoner works well
Great cooling and heating function as have used this for both due to living in Melbourne. When it has been hot it cools really well and in cold weather it heats up well.
Remote seems to work well although haven't played with lots of settings - reasonable priced and works very well.
The Kelvinator KSV reverse cycle split system air conditioner will ensure you have a more comfortable living space, all year round. Keep my house cool on hot summer nights, or warm on cold winter days; The split system is quiet and reliable. Dc inverters, along with backlit remote controls, allow me to control the environment better anywhere in my home.I think the product is compact and suitable for any home design.

This air conditioner is a good price option available in the market. It is easy to get it installed and works perfectly without making noise.it has both cooling and heating capacity. The remote needs to be more user friendly as it get tricky to set the temperature for heater setting.
promotion ended 3/07/2018 still waiting on cashback
Very dissapointed. Purchased this unit during a promotion offered $200 cashback. I submitted my claim online on 22/07/2018. Further infromation was requested as my name on the receipt had my maiden name. I received a phone call and was advised my calim had been validated on 24/07/2018 and I will receive my cashback in approx 6-8 weeks. I have sent emails to enquire on the status no response. When called recieved conflicting information. i submitted my claim and provided proof of purchase as well as serial number of indoor and outdoor Unit wit...h in the promotional period. Apparently I have now have to wait 6-8 weeks from the closing date of the redemption period 31/08/2018!!!!! Really. I was informed probably won't recieve my cashback until end of October! Very dissapointing.
This is a excellent air conditioner , it is quiet and has really good features timer settings, fan settings, heat settings all easy to use. I use it for cooling in summer and heating in winter. The casing is well designed a clean white with a silver detail looks stylish on the wall. I am very happy with this purchase
Works well, until it doesn't.
I was surprised at how well this small unit heated our lounge room, until about 7 weeks later, when it stopped working. The inside unit started displaying an error, and the outside unit making a loud, clunky whirring sound. After waiting a fortnight for the technician to come and investigate, it turned out the entire outside unit had destroyed itself somehow, meaning another wait for Kelvinator to replace said unit.
We've only treated the unit with care, and up until that point, it showed not a fragment of unreliability.
Since this, I've ...
Kelvinator air con
This is such a very affordable reverse cycle unit especially due to cash back and it works extremely well. I am very happy because my tenants were cold and the old unit was always too powerless, This one is the same size but a lot bigger engine. Thanks for coming to the rescue
Perfect split with budget
Great product with quiet outdoor unit. Cooling & heating works great. Easy to use remote & turbo control is quite effective. Good thing is not too noisy & cheap price for 5kw split reverse cycle. I would definitely recommend this product. Led display looks great. Energy rating is 4 & 5 star
Product is great, installation was not!
It heats our large room with high ceilings very efficiently and is a very quiet machine compared to other split systems l have had in the past. And very east to use. Is am still waiting for my cash back promo, which l hope is coming soon. As far as installation, I used a company that was recommended from the retailer l bought it from. Was told an initial cost over the phone but then extra charges were added once they were here. Upon inspection of outdoor unit after they left, there is an almighty dent in the unit. Fair enough, it is only aesthetic but it would've been proper of them to own up instead of not mentioning it at all. The machine is good but beware of who you get to install.
Terrible! Ripped off!
This unit is so terrible! It cost $1300 and doesn't oscillate from left to right! It doesn't heat at all. Waste of money, cheap and nasty. We owned a kelvinator 7kw split system 6 years ago and were so happy with it. But now they have been bought out by Electrolux and are absolutely cheap quality - same price though.
Moved in to our brand new house
We are having problems with ours its blowing cold air on heater we have only been in our house for a month also have a new born due in 5 weeks help me anyone company that built the house claim thats its not covered by builders warranty.. mind you there was a mouse living init
Luv Our Aircons
Bought two Kelvinator 2.5 and one 3.5 from Harvey Norman Penrith and the installer was reliable and excellent. The units are super quiet and nice looking. Was reluctant to install these units in our 1920's Homestead for asthetic reasons ... they are discretely positioned above the dado / picture rail level and are hardly noticeable. They certainly have not detracted from the period theme that I was so worried about, and they are great to have for peace of mind, when we have extreme heat in the Mountains. The added bonus is that they are reverse cycle and can be used when its cold too. To top it all off the price was right!

Questions & Answers
Hi..i have a room about 45 square metres..what size kelvinator split system would suit it best?
I bought this model to install in our new unit but now it's built I've decided that it's too large for the room and am hoping to try and get rid of it somehow but I'm not sure what price I should sell it for. It was never used...perfect condition. I bought it 2 yrs ago from Harvey Norman...yes it's taken that long to finish building!!! I'm very happy with a sml floor heater...I think I paid about 800? Considering that it's never been used and kept in the box what price could you suggest or site to re sell?. Thank you for your time.
re confusing instructions page 14 'self clean function': how long does op. take; does it turn itself off?
Explain: 8ºC heating function ?? FP?? What is it used for?? Thank you
