Quiet and warming the living room fast

published

Happy with the performance of this Avanti SRK35ZSA-W-Set installed for a week.
Quiet and high performance for warming up the living room when cold. But the price is expensive.
Its about $2100 or more including supply and installation in Melbourne.

Purchased in May 2022 for $2,100.

What a world of difference!

published

We installed two of these units to replace old splitties that were installed in 2007. Needless to say, the difference is like night and day. It no longer sounds like we have a pair of Mack trucks on the roof, and the indoor units are as quiet as a mouse.

There was a May cold-snap a couple of weeks ago (we’re in Melbourne) and the MHI splitties worked like a dream. We’re looking forward to giving them a good workout this winter, and into next summer as well. They’re quiet, powerful, and if you’re living with old non-inverter on/off split systems, you won’t believe the difference.

Purchased in May 2022 for $1,150.

Terrible noise at lowest speed ~50 db

published

I bought a brand new 2.5kw avanti series from bunnings . The unit is generating noise even at lowest fan speed. As per the brochure it should generate no more than 20db indoors but mine has recorded 50db.
called customer service but the lady had no answer other than asking me to fill up a warranty claim form and provide my master card details for a service team to visit. Team will charge my card if they find no issues in the unit. Don’t know why would they charge if the unit is just 12 days old?
Consulted with my aircon installer and he said its a ‘known flaw’ in Mitsubishi HI units.

Not sure Should I submit a claim or not.

I took this reading from my apple watch noise measurement app.

Clicking and poping sound

published

The air conditioners were installed in year 2019, and have intermittent clicking and popping sound, and which is quite annoying during sleeping time. I made a warranty claim, and Mitsubishi sent technicians to fix 3 times, but still have not fixed the problems.

Try to contact them again and unreachable, and don't know what to do next.

It’s to small. It’s working to hard and it’s nosier than the previous generations. I would not recommend this size. Design also does not look as good as the previous generation

Great quality

published

I always buy Mitsubishi HI units as they are the best value for money, reliability and power consumption.
Features are pretty standard and simple. I'm not looking for anything fancy like wifi control etc just something that will work and reduce power consumption.
It works well in very hot conditions cooling quickly then maintaining the temperature.
I like that fact that it's not made in China using extremely cheap components

Thank you for replying, I'm aware heat pumps can lose a few kW when it’s cold outside so just wondering how much this model loses? Thanks

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Avanti Series

Details

The Avanti Series is awarded 4.7 stars by consumers. This puts it on an even keel with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries' other offering of split system AC's, the Bronte Series. The Avanti is a great alternative for those willing to save a little money.

The Avanti Series is also more suited to those who have smaller rooms they wish to regulate, as the cooling power offered with Avanti is lower than the Bronte series.

Features

  • There are 7 models of Avanti split system ACs you can buy, which vary according to their size. The options are: 2.0kW, 2.5kW, 3.5kW, and 5.0kW. Each size is available with either reverse cycle or cooling only functionality, except for the 2.0kW model, which is only available as a reverse cycle model.
  • An allergen clearing filter and photocatalytic deodorising filter work together to provide pleasantly fresh, clean air to breathe. The allergy neutralises and traps airborne allergens like pollen, dust and hair.
  • The inverter frequency automatically adjusts its speed and power level according to the operating mode and temperature settings.
  • There are a number of different operating modes, such as dry operation, which reduces humidity levels; Hi Power operation for extreme temperatures; Silent Operation, for sleeping undisrupted; and Night Setback, which keeps the room at 10°C even on winter nights).
  • An included Eco-mode is both environmentally and economically friendly.
  • A weekly timer allows you to set and forget your AC and have it run at the most important temperature-sensitive times of day, including just before you wake up. A sleep timer lets you program the AC to switch off after anywhere between 30-240 minutes, so the AC doesn't keep blasting on all night.
  • There's a decibel rating of 36 at low speed, which audiologists label as something between a whisper and a quiet library.
  • A child lock stops curious kids from playing around with the AC and accidentally changing functions and settings.
  • A self-cleaning function makes maintaining this split system AC a little easier.
  • Wi-Fi control is optional, with the separate purchase of a specialised adaptor.

Points of praise

  • These capable ACs could be relied upon to provide relief in extreme weather conditions. A powerful cooling ability made surviving sweltering hot days much easier, while the reverse cycle units also made a room much warmer and cosier during winter.
  • An energy efficient performance made the Avanti ACs kind on householders’ power bills, with reviewers happily noting that their bills didn’t skyrocket while running their AC.
  • The AC runs quietly, which was appreciated by reviewers as making it more user-friendly.
  • Overall, the Avanti ACs were described by reviewers as a worthy investment that they could trust to serve them well for long-term use.

ProductReview_2022 Awards_logo

This is pretty cool news for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries - the Avanti Series and Bronte Series have won ProductReview Awards for Best Split System ACs for the second year running in 2022. The Avanti Series earned this title notably due to its durable build quality and excellent value for money.
