Beware before you purchase these expensive products from Mitsubishi

Beware before you purchase these expensive products from Mitsubishi. After just one year of use one fine day the aircon stopped working. With sloppy warranty process, one appointed firm visited my premises and informed that the outdoor unit has ants on the outdoor unit pcb and later Mitsubishi said that this is not covered under warranty and provided me with a quite of $915. So the unit which is meant to be placed outside doesn’t have any protective design to protect the pcb from ants which is so common in gardens in Australia. Hope they spent on some R&D to come up with some better and consumer friendly design so that the customers are not ripped off for no real reasons as warranty repairs. I won’t recommend this expensive product Show details

Upgrading to new MHI from old Mitsi Electric. Cheaper to run, hasnt missed a beat

I purchased this in March 23 to replace a 15 year old Mistubishi Electric unit which was starting to show its age. It's now on its second winter, we are toasty warm and it hasnt missed a beat. Some observations are that our power usage went down significantly last winter and this one heats up the room a lot quicker than the old unit. We dont use a lot of Aircon inn summer but when we did it did what it should and cooled a large open plan area quickly. The only downside is that the internal unit is much larger than the old one so if you are after a stealthy look the MHI Bronte units are probably not for you - they tend to be larger than the competition. Show details

Still the best

Have owned several MBHI air cons over the last three decades and always been happy. I have waited a while to submit my review so that it’s no longer the honeymoon phase. Now, I would highly recommend this system - more so since moving to Townsville. Show details

Fantastic and value for money

Absolutely love my MHI Bronte 7.1kW reverse-cycle air conditioner. It's energy-efficient, quite and cools our open-plan living area of approximately 65 square meters super fast. The heating function is also excellent. After getting quotes from several installers, the best offer I received was $2700 for standard back-to-back installation in November 2023. As a sweetener, I received a $200 cash-back from MHI within 60 days. Show details

I am looking to purchase a MHI 6.3kW split system (as a set comprising both the indoor and outdoor units). What is the difference between the 6.3KW Mitsubishi Bronte SRK63ZRA-W and the DXK21ZRA-W?

Details

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.

These ACs are designed to be run in larger rooms than the Bronte Series from Mitsubishi, and accordingly will also be more expensive.

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.
  • A self-cleaning function makes keeping this split system AC in good quality condition a little easier.

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.
