Incredible Product, No Regrets

published

We live on a 3 bedroom house that has only this air-conditioner installed which is located in our lounge room. It runs beautifully, nice and quiet whilst providing satisfactory heating or cooling control. After a year of running it we have no regrets and will always recommend this air-conditioner as the best option on the market. We have held back from purchasing extra air-conditioners in the other rooms because although it doesn't fully cool or heat the house, it takes the edge off those hot summer nights or cold winter nights.

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $2,200.

New unit clicking noise

published

New a/c installed 2 days ago, has a constant loud clicking noise, drives me crazy annoying.
Tossed up between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Daikin, right now I made the wrong choice.
Lodged a warranty claim 31/03/22, stay tuned for an update.

Wonderfully cools and heats the whole upper floor of our home. Great remote control!

published

During the heat of last summer our home remained cool and comfortable. During winter, warm and snug. Both cooling and heating cycles were quick to take effect. The unit is quiet and does not interfere with our listening to music or television.

Amazing, heats better than I expected it to.

Runs great for long periods. Features are good but remote can sometimes be unresponsive. Excellent heating in low temperatures but have not had hot weather to necessitate use of the cooling functions

The silent achiever

published

We have our unit in a rather large room and this unit keeps it just right and does it very silently.
That’s why we had to start using the timer because we keep forgetting it is on when we went to bed. It is such a great and powerful unit and we couldn’t have gone for a better one for the price.

A good machine.

This air conditioner works very well throughout summer. It keeps us comfortable on days of over 40 degrees, and has a control that is easy to manipulate. It works quietly in all weathers.

Highly effective reverse cycle air conditioner

Very effective for the living room during winter as we kept it on all the time. It is a bit noiser then the old Daikin that it replaced. We look forward to seeing how it performs in the summer heat.

We paid $1850. You can probably get it a little cheaper online, but you’ll have to pay for delivery anyway. And installation. An excellent unit that we’re very happy we bought.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Bronte Series

Details

With its excellent rating of 4.7 stars, the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Bronte Series of split system air conditioners is a promising pick to help you stay comfortable all year round. These ACs are designed to be run in larger rooms than the Bronte Series from Mitsubishi, and accordingly will also be more expensive.

The Bronte Series ACs are available in 6 different models, depending on your room size. These include: 6.3kW, 7.1kW, 8.0kW, 9.5kW, and 10kW. All of these models are available as reverse cycle ACs, and the 7.1kW is additionally available in a cooling only option.

(However since the cooling-only option costs $1, 600 from Bunnings compared to $1, 599 for the split system, it makes sense to have both heating and cooling options).

Features

  • Clean Air Technology draws on a filter to capture smoke, and clear the air of allergens including pollen, dust and hair. A photocatalytic deodorising filter then neutralises bacteria-causing odours.
  • Thanks to ‘Fuzzy Auto Mode,’ the AC auto-adjusts its speed and power level according to the operating mode and temperature settings.
  • There are a number of different operating modes, such as Eco Mode, which reduces power consumption; Dry operation, which decreases humidity; Hi Power operation, for extremely hot or cold temperatures; Silent Operation, to help go to sleep at night; and Night Setback, which keeps the room at 10°C and prevents it from dropping lower than this.
  • A weekly timer lets you program the AC to run at certain times of the day when you know some temperature regulation wouldn’t go astray, like 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 run all night.
  • Other handy included functions are an On/off timer, Comfort Start-Up, and Preset operation.
  • The AC runs at a decibel rating of 36 dB at low speed, which audiologists label as something between a whisper and a quiet library.
  • A child lock stops kids from accidentally changing functions and settings on the AC.
  • A self-cleaning function makes keeping this split system AC in good quality condition a little easier.
  • Wi-Fi control is an optional add-on, with the separate purchase of a specialised adaptor.

Points of praise

  • The Bronte series of ACs were praised as powerful and effective air conditioners. They were reported to work especially well in high temperatures of 30-40°C, and the heating function was also a great hit with reviewers in winter.
  • Along with powerful cooling and heating capability, the AC was quick to start working its magic, which was a relief on days with extreme weather conditions.
  • The quiet operation of the unit doesn’t get in the way of daily household activities.
  • While larger spaces can be harder to cool down or heat up, the Bronte series of ACs were effective options for large rooms and open plan spaces.

ProductReview_2022 Awards_logo

This is pretty cool news for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries - its Bronte Series and Avanti Series Split System ACs have won ProductReview Awards for being the best in their category, for the second year running in 2022. The Bronte Series owes its title to two main factors: the AC’s solid build quality, and its fast heating and cooling speed.
