Whisper quiet and EFFICIENT
HIGHLY rated on Choice magazine and I can now see why. Very efficient and very quiet. Also has optional iPhone app to turn on / off / schedule... even through the internet whilst overseas...
10/10 would buy again, Enjoy.

Absolutely quiet and highly efficient
We replaced an old system and are stunned by the silent and pleasant operation of this unit. The air stream is gentle and not noticeable, and it keeps us warm in Canberra winter. Outside unit is also very, very quiet. The system is intelligent, and unnoticeably changes operational parameters to maintain the temperature with least obtrusion.
I've recently had this split system air-conditioning installed by the Office of Housing, in the six (6) days since installation, I'm absolutely & utter impressed. I've been living in my unit for 23 yrs, with traditional gas heating, which eventually had to be replaced - until now, I've never ever had to air-conditioning, it's been like joining the 21st century - I'm very very much impressed.

Perfect small AC
In the last 5 years we progressively populated our house with extremely efficient MHI hyper inverter units which were rated as 6 stars efficient. Yes, there is initial higher price of purchase, but in lifecycle sense of things it turns up cheaper too have good, efficient unit rather than buy something cheap(er). Despite all good words I can say about small hyper inverter units we did encounter a small, actually a big problem. Last unit we bought just before winter 2018 for our 2-year-old to keep room nice and warm on in endeavour reduce our he...ating costs. On the first night of operation we set AC to 24C (the temperature outside was just below 10C) on heat and went to bed. After 15 minutes of operation kid’s monitor was screaming about overheating and showing 29C. We thought it is a mistake but checked the room and it was very warm. So, we set AC to 22C. The story repeated itself. We called MHI the next day. The support from MHI was great. The tech came it, tested all and said… that the AC is too big for the room (2.5m x 3m). Apparently, to protect AC compressor it should run for at least 10 min before switching off. It was hard to accept as situation, but tech said that at the end of 2018 MHI will release a new version of this model that has better environmental credentials and 5 minutes cut off time instead of 10. By the end of 2018 we moved to a new house and because we were impressed by MHI AC quality, commitment for improvement and support we decided to buy new hyper inverter model. This is how we ended up buying srk20zsxa-w. The AC has 7 stars environmental rating. Whatever that means for people that rate them I’m not sure, but the AC cools and heats room exceptionally well while consuming only around 400W of power, well, that is truly impressive. What else is impressive – it is silent. I barely can hear the indoor unit and can’t hear outdoor unit at all. No more too hot/cold problems like with its predecessor. I’m extremely impressed. Everyone have their view on what the best AC for their needs/budget, but if you are after extremely efficient, well working unit and don’t mind paying a bit more I highly recommend srk20zsxa-w. Note, prices for this particular model are high, but shopping around and hard bargain does pay off. I ended up paying $250 less than advertised price for each AC. Mind you, we bought 4.
Happy customer, very quite unit
Pros - very quiet and energy efficient
Cons - High cost
I have been using the unit for 6 months now I am very happy with the unit.
I got the SRK20ZSXA-W, 7 star rated 2KW split system installed for a 16 square meter study.
I work 1 meter away from it and the indoor unit is very quiet on low fan speed and I hardly know it is working. The external unit is installed on a fibro wall but no vibrations or excess noise come through to the study. It is quite adequate to keep the room at the temperature and probably too big for the room as 23 in summer...

Shush .. the Avanti Plus is trying to say something!
Split system air conditioners - holy moly, there sure are a lot of those around! Am I right or am I right. Anyhoo, we wanted a small, quiet and efficient unit (e.g. 2KW) for a bedroom. I must admit to being drawn to this brand after having a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries fridge (which runs so quietly you can hardly hear it). It was still a close call between the Mitsu, Panasonic, and Daikin, but in the end I was sold on the fact that this 7 star unit was engineered by renowned, Italian industrial design firm TENSA, boasting a sleek, sophisticate...d and modern design that was awarded the Silver A’Design Award in 2017. "Whoa back there - did you say 'TENSA' .. err I mean '7 star' ? " "Ahuh.. yes I did. May I continue? .. <whistle> So anyway, it turns out that the Avanti Plus is one of the only 7 star rated options out there (round of applause). The unit is very similar in features to the Avanti, which is its 5 star rated 'uglier' cousin, but probably just as good an option if budget is an issue. You can also find the Avanti line at the likes of Bunnings or Harvey, whereas this was a little more sparse and hence not as heavily discounted. Price difference is around 300 on a 2Kw system. For the extra coin, you do get a slightly different chassis, a motion sensor (like on the Daikin) an ultra Eco mode (for that bonus two stars in efficiency), plus some smarty pants allergy filters (cough). That TENSA design obviously cost some biscuits as well. It's still a big white box on the wall people - don't get your hopes up. Anyway, the unit is shaped quite nicely for an aircon, but it's not until you turn things on where you will notice the difference to cheaper brands. This thing is ultra quiet ... and I don't use the word 'ultra' lightly here. Not just inside either. The big difference to other systems I've seen and heard is for the outside unit. Super silent compressor unit - very impressive. Even the installer couldn't believe how silent this thing ran. You would have no problems installing this right next to a paper thin bedroom wall or near windows. The only aspect not entirely silent is the fancy flap mechanism when the unit turns on or off. The whole front fascia lifts up to reveal the IR sensor, and that motion can be slightly creaky. Once running however, it's much like most other internal units in terms of fan noise. The fan on low is very quiet.
Questions & Answers
Please, can I get information on how the climate keeps the set temperature (cooling or heating)?
I had the Gree U-Crown climate and at a set temperature of 20 0C he warmed up to 26 0C !!!
Thanks for the reply.

Our split systems use inverter technology whereby the unit will cycle on/off to maintain the temperature within a room. Our Avanti PLUS model incorporates a precise temperature control whereby the unit will maintain the temperature within a space to within 1c by checking the temperature regularly when in auto mode.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the extremely fast response. Thankfully. I will take the opportunity to ask one more question, which refers to the description of Kapitoshka user:
"On the first night of operation we set the AC to 24C (the outside temperature was just below 10C) on the heat and went to bed. After 15 minutes of operation the kid's monitor was screaming about overheating and showing 29C."
which talks about the same problem as it was with the Gree climate.
First, let me provide you with information about the MIHI climate that I want to buy. Air conditioning is available in Europe (Slovenia):
the KIREIA PLUS SRK 35 ZSX-S (3.5kW) model, I think it is equivalent to SRK35ZSXA-W (3.5 kW) in Australia.
Heat / cooler will have 3 rooms in a total area of 20 m2 + 6 m2 and another 2 rooms, a hall 7 m2 and a bedroom 15 m2.
Total direct 26 m2, indirectly through the door 22 m2. The height of the rooms is 2.5 m.
Temperatures in winter reach -15 to -20 0C, average +5 to
- 7 0C.
In the summer, extremes are up to +35 0C, average +26 to +30 0C.
Will the Kireia Plus (model for Europe) have any problems with maintenance of the set temperature due to the cooling of the compressor as with the post from Kapitoshka?
You will be very helpful with your knowledge of climate performance and expertise.
Thanks for the reply.
Hi Mac, I won't comment on specific models as I'm not MHI representative, but here are basics to consider: Most of ACs have compressor lubricants incorporated in gas and rely on "minimum operation time" to keep AC compressor lubricated. For older models I think is 10 minutes of minimum operational time for Avanti models I think is 5 minutes. Hence, if your set temperature will be reached in 3 minutes, AC will keep operation till set minimum by AC computer, then invert down or stop. In my case 7 additional minutes resulted in 9C more than set temperature. After all interaction with MHI my lessons learnt were: 1. Do not buy bigger unit than required 2. Buy latest with better logic and more advanced tech. Now we have 2,5kw Avanti model in the same room. In winter it set to keep +21c where in reality it fluctuates between +20c and +24c due to above described, which is perfectly fine with us. Hope it helps.
