A Very Good Unit
We have only had the unit for 4 weeks . Very satisfied. It is the same size as the previous unit but puts out a lot more heat. have not used it as cooling unit as yet.

The unit copes very well and we are very satisfied at the moment with all the different settings this unit has and is very quite and I believe it was the right decision to buy the Mitsubishi electric air conditioning unit hope it will continue to work the same in many years to come

This split system is very quiet, exceptionally efficient, both heating and cooling are excellent and I would recommend this brand to anyone. It is not an eyesore on the wall looks good and should suit everybody.

Very quiet and solid
Nothing worse than a noisy aircon at night. Very happy with my Mitsubishi unit in terms of performance and features. The heater is very warm and the AC is very cool.
The remote is easy to use.
Can highly recommend Mitsubishi!!!

Great appliance, Well priced, Hit expectations
This appliance is noiseless, effective, cost efficient and not an unattractive unit. Three months of use is not an extensive test period but I am very happy with this purchase. Due diligence and product research is a must for me. My only suggestion is to ensure you follow the appliance output/capacity (Kw)size to your living areas volumes carefully. That is; match the rooms areas to the units output. I'd recommend this product to anyone.

Best Ac on the market
We have been installing split systems for around 15 years and these are by far the best split system on the market. They are a lot quieter then any other brand , not just the head unit but also the outdoor unit ( which is important when mounting them to the wall) Back up is the best we have seen as well. Mitsubishi Electric account for about 80% of all the air conditioners we install now, we are so much happier with a lot less call backs. I was so impressed I removed my 5 yr old existing ac unit to replace them we these and glad I did.

So slow to start working
Installed 24/12/20 , so far this unit seems to work ok once the initial start up time elapses which can be sadly up to 10 mins. I was assured at purchase point this was a top of the range product, The unit has been rechecked by the installers and reported to be gased and installed correctly. Mitsubishi electric technical service were useless, could not give me an answer as to how long it should take for the unit to work mmm somewhere between 2 and 12 mins
I have 2 other units in my house (1)top of the range Daikin and (2) a low to mid range Te...

I've had Mitsubishi Electric air cons before and they have been good. However, I purchased this unit just 3 months ago and have had the following problems already: NOT cool at all even on the lowest temp and on cool. Doesn't seem to work on auto at all. Stops all the time and does nothing. Totally unreliable as I cannot use at all.

Broken longer than it's worked
Had a unit installed into our kitchen/dining early in the summer. Performance was OK, I don't have an objective comparison but versus the 7kw in our dining room it does not seem to cool as well or reach as far - even after removing a wall to clear an obstruction to the cool air it's only barely handling things on hot days.
That was until a month after install it broke. And has now been longer waiting for parts and repairs than it was in use. First a broken power board, three weeks to diagnose and source parts, now a broken compressor and still...no ETA for that. It's hard to know what is parts scarcity or vendor delay but it does seem to take 10 days minimum for parts to get here. Summer in QLD is peak season for installers and repair techs and maybe this vendor is just very busy, but this is pretty shabby. We paid a premium for the unit based on reputation for the manufacturer and it hasn't worked out like that. I'm going to see if after repairs it works better, and I'll reflect that here, but not looking great so far and at this rate it might be another year until we need to use it having lost most of summer to the breakdown. SIX MONTH Update as promised - The system is going a far better job of heating then it did cooling. I have increased the build quality to reflect the performance post-repairs and i'm pretty happy. This is not the most efficient or powerful unit we own, but it is doing the job well enough. It is somewhat unfair to punish the product for the installer/repairers performance but they are a licensed supplier and supply chain compounded the issue here, on top of what was effectively a manufacturing default.

Very quiet and efficent
I replaced my aging split system air conditioner which just gave up the ghost after 14 years in my studio apartment investment property in Brisbane with a 5kw reverse cycle Mitsubishi split system Model MSZ-AP50VGD. My tenant is over the moon with this new air conditioner, they can not get over how quiet and efficient the new air-conditioner is.

Silent but Completely Different to Mitsubishi Images! - Ugly
The machine works well and is very quiet, but looks nothing like the image in the Mitsubishi catalogue. In the catalogue it's made to look very sleek and trim, but when it arrived it was VERY bulky - looks like something from the 90's.
We are just in the process of renovating and wanted something to match our modern feel but were greatly disappointed with this very thick-looking and bulky unit.
Ours also doesn't close properly (just got it last week) and the bottom of the unit has a curve popping out.

Fantastic and super quiet heat pump
Chose this model on Mitsubishi's bullet proof reliability. I also liked how compact the unit is as the space it was to be fitted was quite limited. I love the wifi feature, it give you many options of control so on those cold rainy evenings you can switch it on from work or when driving home. The heat from this unit is felt through the whole house, 150 square meters. In terms of db levels, you hardly notice it's running, extremely quiet. We look forward to summer and checking out it's cooling ability and will have another small Mitsubishi model installed in our bedroom to keep in cool in the evenings.

Wow! So Happy!
Installed in winter so I can only speak for the heater setting. So impressed with this unit. I have a 3 bedroom house that is not open plan. It is in the lounge room and has 2 door ways to get through in order to heat the rest of the house. I was unsure if it would flow through ok but it heats the rest of the house with absolute ease. It’s quiet, has a simple remote control (though I wish it had a backlight) and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. We decided to add on the wifi adapter. Relatively easy to set up and app is very user friendly. I find this handy when I’m almost home or not wanting to get out of bed and face the freezing cold house. It’s truly comfortable living at its finest.

Installed 7.1kw into our new shop
I can't believe how quite on heating all clients comment how quite it is
Fantastic product did my research and picked Mitsubishi over other big brands as I know people who have them and are so impressed

- MSZ-AP25VG (2.5kW)
I felt compelled to write a review as there is little real world comments about these units - I have installed 3 for bedrooms of varying size, units are very quiet (incredibly so when heating), good looking and appear to heat / cool with very little effort.
The Wifi adapter, while expensive, is fantastic. I do not use the remotes, just Google home and the Mitsubishi AP app only. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The perfect units for bedroom use, and the smart integrations make these units a pleasure to operate.

Questions & Answers
I've tried finding Warranty conditions for these units on Mitsubishi website without any luck-
Could someone please enlighten me on the warranty period for this Series of Mitsubishi Electric AC.

Is it expensive to replace a heating element in a Cooling split system in the air condition?
How much money does this cost to run an hour?
Hi Lauren, I'm not surprised no-one answered your question, heh. It's hard to say.
1. The model - this series ranges from 2.5 kW (cooling rating) to 7.8 kW, so it depends on the model.
2. Heating or cooling - heating uses more power than cooling
3. Temperature setting - some people are comfortable at 20C (heating) and others need it warmer, the same for cooling.
But putting aside all these variables, reverse cycle air conditioners are the cheapest way to heat/cool a home.
The way they operate is very energy efficient, e.g. if the the AC is rated at 2.5 kW (2500 Watts) per hour for cooling, this means the AC will provide 2.5 kW of cooling but it will use much less actual power than that. There is a COP rating (heating), and an AEER rating (cooling) which is usually 3-4. So if you divide 2500 Watts by a 3 COP then the actual power used would be 833 Watts.
Compare that to a typical electric fan heater that uses about 1000 Watts on the low setting, up to 2400 Watts on the high setting, and you can see the difference.
I use my Mitsubishi MSZ-AP50VG in the main living area and it has a 5 kW cooling capacity (1.4 - 6.2 kW), and a 6 kW (1.4 - 8.0 kW) heating capacity.
The AEER rating is 3.78, and the COP rating is 3.7. So at the minimum of 1.4 kW the actual power used would be 370 Watts (cooling), and 378 Watts (heating) per hour.
Based on my electricity rate of 21.67 cents per kW/h, that would be 8-8.2 cents per hour. An electric fan heater on low (1000 Watts) would be 21.67 cents per hour.
