Bronte SRK71ZRA-W (7.1kW)

I am looking to install a 7.1kw Bronte unit soon and it will be a back to back install. I was looking at the installation manual and can’t seem to find the minimum refrigerant pipe length. It says maximum 30m run but not a minimum. I know some other models are noisy if the pipe run is too short, so I was just wondering if there is a minimum pipe run length between indoor and outdoor units.

Hi Matt,

The minimum pipe length depends on a few different factors but normally we recommend minimum should be approx 2m. We recommend all installations are done by a licence professional who should be able to confirm this and provide some more information.

If you haven't already found a dealer or installer, you can find your local one here -https://mhiaa.com.au/home/where-to-buy/

Hope this helps!

Hi Can you please advise what are the feature differences between the Bronte SRK71ZRA compared to the SRK60ZSWA Avanti Plus model apart from the size kw

Hi Robert,

While the Bronte series and Avanti PLUS series do share many standard features and functions, The Avanti PLUS is our Platinum Series and has some additional ones including a motion sensor and eco-operation (turning the unit into standby when it detects an empty room), improved and more accurate temperature control and improved internal components. The Avanti PLUS also has a more modern design and won the Australian Good Design Award last year.

They both suit similar size spaces (refer to the sizing chart or full split systems brochure for more info). Hope this helps but if you need anymore clarification, please let me know.

Bronte SRK71ZRA-W (7.1kW)

i have been setting my new SRK71 to start up in the morning on 21 and 30-40 minutes later the room is at 24/25. this is great for warmth but not for electricity usage. i have come down to start up of 19 but it still heats to 24/25. is there something wrong ?

Mitsubishi Heavy Ind.Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioners

Hi Michael,

If you are using a separate temperature sensor to measure room temp, it's likely that it will always show a different temperature that what the unit is registering as the units temperature sensor is located in the indoor unit. This is especially true if your independent sensor is located underneath the unit itself.

You may want to try reducing the fan speed on the unit. If you still find the unit seems to be overheating the room on a lower temperature and fan speed, I suggest contacting us on 1300 138 007 for some further troubleshooting.

Michael R.
Michael R.

thank you for your reply. the independent temperature sensor is 5 - 6 metres from the unit and the fan is on minimum speed. i will ring the number you have supplied.

Bronte SRK71ZRA-W (7.1kW)

What is the difference between SRK71ZRA-W and DXK24ZRA-A-W? Choice has rated the former but no listing for the latter.

1 answer
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioners
Mitsubishi Heavy Ind.Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioners

Hi Sue,

The model numbers are slightly different depending on where you purchase the unit from however the SRK71ZRA-W and DXK24ZRA-W are exactly the same model (technical specifications, remote, features/functions, etc.). The CHOICE recommendations were given prior to the DXK model being released however it wold still apply to the 7.1kW Bronte model.

Hope this helps but if you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to let me know!

Bronte SRK71ZRA-W (7.1kW)

I bought an SRK71ZRA-W Bronte series last week. Your user manual for that model, on page 15 Cool/Heat/Dry/Fan Mode operation, recommends setting Cool range at 26c -28c & Heat range 22c - 24c Surely the cool range figures are a mistake! Surely you mean 16c - 18c ?

Mitsubishi Heavy Ind.Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioners

Hi Neil,

The temperatures given in the manual are recommendations to provide a comfortable temperature while also providing the best energy efficiency. Of course everyone is different so if you find it is still too warm, you can set the temperature lower (say 21c-22c) however the unit will then use more power.

What amperage does it take to run this unit

Hi my installer did tell me. I think it was fairly high 17 -18amps? Must have its own feed from the power board on a separate circuit and fuse. No way would it be safe on the normal house circuit. It would cause an overload.

Hi There. Running current depends on which operation the system is current in however it usually varies between 7.8 and 9.4 with 240V supply. Maximum running current is 17A.

Hi Christine,

All our split systems draw in air from within your home before cooling/heating this and then recirculating it. They do not draw in any air from outside. Hope this answers your question!

HG

As Glen said that is correct and exactly how you want it too work otherwise it would be continually heating or cooling new air which would be very costly. I would also add this aircon a can also be set to filter and dehumidify the air in the house as well as cool and heat. I am very happy with mine and it is extremely quiet both inside and out. Easy to leave running when going to bed so be careful.

Hi Sandra,

The Avanti series is our smaller series designed for smaller to medium spaces with models ranging from 2.0kW up to 5.0kW. Our Bronte series is our larger series, designed for medium to larger spaces with models ranging from 6.3kW to 9.5kW. I'd suggest checking out our sizing chart for more information around which size unit would be best for your home. https://mhiaa.com.au/document/srkdxk-room-sizing-chart/

Bronte SRK71ZRA-W (7.1kW)

I am purchasing a MHI SRK71ZRA-W-Set and a MHI SRK25ZSA-W-Set. The outdoor units will be installed alongside the brick side wall of my house which has no windows, bedrooms are located behind the wall. I am constructing a common slightly raised concrete plinth to mount the units. I have made the plinth dimensions 500 wide (off the wall) and 2090mm long. will this be OK and give the best distance between the units? I based the width on the 7.1 unit which is noted as 340 wide + 100 min rear space from the wall. But the information I can access does not show footprint dimensions which include the mounting feet/lugs. Basically I want to ensure that the unit will be contained within the plinth extremities and give the required clearances.

Hi Malcolm My srk25zsa-w is installed back to back. Outdoor unit is on brackets. Urs one is 7.1 kw and mine is 6.3kw both are bronte series. Mine 6.3kw main unit is installed in family hall and outdoor unit is installed at least ten metres away. Installer got the pipes through the roof and out from ceiling and install outdoor unit on brackets.its safe I was thinking to put readymade slab which you can buy from bunnings. Saves space if u put on brackets that’s all.dimesions ur asking best to ask from air con installer.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioners
Mitsubishi Heavy Ind.Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioners

Hi Malcolm,

You should allow at least a 250mm space between both of the units for proper serving and at least 1m from a wall (on any side) to allow for proper ventilation.

I recommend speaking to an authorised installer who can give you some more information. You can find your closest installer on our 'Where to Buy' function - https://mhiaa.com.au/home/where-to-buy/

Hope this helps!

Hi Glen, great, thanks for the reply. Would you also please tell me how much drained water (say Qty per hour) I can expect to have discharged from each indoor and outdoor unit. Unit drainage will go onto a solid paved area, for this reason I intend putting in a ground drain to pipe any water away to discharge into a garden area. I see an elbow is available as an accessory for piping drainage. As I noted, I intended using a concrete slab/plinth to mount the outdoor units on. Will I be able/have room under the units to pipe the drainage away, and what size is the elbow and pipe? (presume PVC plumbing pipe is used?). Because, I note that installation instructions state a 100mm clearance is required under the mounting feet/face for drain piping. Why is so much clearance needed? This clearance is surely only needed to pass a small drain pipe under the unit?
Thanks and Regards,
Malcolm

Hi Treeclimber,

Jaymate's correct! We're actually a completely separate company from Mitsubishi Electric and while Mitsubishi Electric produce other appliances such as fridges, hand dryers, etc we specialise in doing one thing and one thing well which is producing heavy duty and high quality air-conditioners for the Australian and New Zealand market

Our 7.kw Bronte unit is as tough as they come and on top of its 4.7star review, has just been recommended by CHOICE, Australia's leading advocacy group.

Hope this has helped buy if you need anymore information, don't hesitate to let me know.

My SRK71 has been awesome for the last few hot days in Melbourne. It basically cools the whole house if turned on early at a moderate level. Not the cheapest unit, but well worth the spend. And it seems to be pretty efficient with power. I was surprised by my last electricity bill.
