Great unit


Great AC unit, great features, cools the bedroom down nicely. The only cons that I can find are the installation instructions are not that clear and I wish it had a slightly lower fan speed.

Purchased in December 2019 at Stan Cash for $520.00.

Weird noise


Terrible unit. Very noisy in heat mode.
In cooling mode it doesn't make that sound.
We had to buy oil heater to get good night sleep. Bought from goodguys.
Have been using Kelvinator air conditioner for years. Don't think I would recommend anyone now.

Purchased in January 2019 at The Good Guys for $550.00.

Great basic cooling system


Purchased this model for a bedroom (so a shift worker could sleep in summer time!). Cools the room ice cold and very quickly. No major change in my electricity bill noticed despite is running all day in the heat of summer sometimes. It's only real fault is it's a bit noisy and the power cord is only short so had to install a closer PowerPoint.

Fantastic Quite Room Aircon


I put this in at the start of summer and it has made the world of difference to out stuffy bedroom. It is really quiet running - no problem sleeping with this one and is reasonably efficient for an aircon. The best bit is any home handyman can install this because it just plugs in. No wiring needed. A lifesaver this hot summer. Haven't used the heating yet because I really just bought it for cooling. Very happy with it.

Affordable and Efficient


For a 2.7kW cold and 2.4kW hot this little wall unit air conditioner packs a punch. Absolutely a DIY installation was very easy. Just uses a normal 10A power point so no need for extra wiring. A quiet little unit that works well (well so far it is). Was magical during the January 2018 week long heatwave in Victoria with most days 43+ temperatures.

Junk metal, faulty product, dont waste your money


Emits a rattling noise so loud it had to be turned off, faulty unit. Kelvinator warranty process is a nightmare, a over a dreadful month long experience, more than 15 phone calls and complaints, 4 technician visits and multiple attempted deliveries and pick ups that just don't turn up after many hours of waiting. Eventually replaced with a unit that seems to work ok.
Still waiting for the old faulty pile of junk to be picked up but I can't afford to take any more time off work to accommodate the comedy/tragedy of errors. Enjoy spending your hard earned cash in return for stress. Some friendly customer service reps eventually assisted after painful complaints process.

Questions & Answers

KWH26HRE (2.7kW)

When this unit is on heat mode and the air conditioner reaches the set temperature in the room the whole unit shuts off (fan and compressor) and then comes back on when the room cools down. Is this normal??

1 answer

Yes this is apparently normal. Must admit I find this annoying as I would prefer to keep the air circulating in heat mode. How noisy is your unit in heat mode. I find that my unit is slightly noisier in heat mode than cool mode. The compressor seems to be the main source of noise.
