We have had this unit now for almost 2 years. It runs well and quietly compared to our neighbour's system (not Mitsubishi). Our power bills have not been a shock either. Very happy with this product.

Dealer did not set up properly
Working OK now, but some more training for your dealers they did not know how to set it up we had to talk to Mitsubishi support before we could get the answer we wanted. Mitsubishi support were very patient with me and found an error in the way it was set up.
The air had been blowing cold some of the time when it was set to off. We complained to the dealer who installed it on two occasions. They sent their service people out twice, but neither time did they fix it. In our frustration we called Mitsubishi support line in the east and they talked us through changing some of the settings.to stop it blowing the cold air. We received no instructions to make these settings when the system was installed.

Outstanding High Capacity Air Conditioner
After some research, I decided upon having the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries FDUA200AVSAVG system installed to replace our 19 YO Temperzone 22KW Unit. The Temperzone was operating to spec but we were looking for more efficiency and convenience that modern inverters can provide.
My reasons for choosing the FDUA200AVSAVG were :
1. It uses less electricity for for a given output than most other units I had considered at the price point.
2. The wide operating range of the inverter,
3. The extra massive cooling /heating capacity over sim...

Works well hot or cold
The unit does its job very well in both hot and cold conditions. It is also very quiet and the controls are reasonably easy to operate. I will have no hesitation in acquiring another similar unit to cover the rest of our property.

Better than expected
Extremely quiet unit easy to use and Works efficiently. Takes a little longer to cool on those extremely hot days ( + 38 deg ) But that would only be expected. I will definitely recommend this product.

Perfect all rounder!
The unit copes extremely well so far in both hot and cold weather.
I'm extremley satisfied with the performance of our this unit in both heat and cooling mode, the controls are easy to use when applying different settings and different zones.
This unit seems to work well in all seasonal conditions, especially over summer on those 40 degree days (set on 24 degrees summer and 21 winter).
All good, no issues so far. It’s very quiet and works well. It cools quickly and the wifi is a excellent upgrade.
Quality product. I am very happy with the purchase

MITSUBISHI HEAVY 14KW DUCTED REVERSE CYCLE
Don’t waste your money. Two hours of heating to reach 22 degrees in an 11 square unit with a 14kw system. Make sure you have a lot of blankets and extra $ for the excess power bill. Mitsubishi Heavy finds this acceptable. Cooling in summer was also dismal. We were able to prove John from Acute who first came out lied about the temperature reading among a number of other things despite having a witness significantly different to what Mitsubishi found by 10 degrees. Request someone else. “Discussions” on how connections should be in their view...are just that it is not an area of their expertise - quote. They cannot / will not back up whether or not they perceive it to be a problem. Blame was put on everything else despite 2 other experts confirming to the contrary. So after 2 hours of running the unit ... finally reaching 22 degrees and switching off we were advised it is acceptable with no comment on any of the so called “discussions” (not their expertise) and what they tried to pick on. Unfortunately this is an expensive outlay and we need to put up with it until it breaks down or deemed unfit for use.

The unit copes extremely well.
I am satisfied with the performance of this unit. The controls are easy to use when applying different settings.
This unit seems to work well in all seasonal conditions.
My only concern is the outside unit is a little bit noisy, but that i would think this is to do with the size of the unit?
Purchased in July 2019.
Very good system.
The system works very well when used for extended periods in both the hot and especially the cold climate that we experience.
I find it a very simple system to operate and to navigate
Purchased in July 2019 for $8,000.00.
The unit is work perfectly. The only problem is the outdoor unit makes a vibrating ( ratling) noise from inside the machine. Indoor unit is quiet. So overall it run well.
Faultless so far
As per the description the unit has been faultless so far.
It is whisper quiet and does everything we ask of it.
I researched before buying and have been impressed by the stated energy consumption matching what I read about.
I would not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone looking for what this product promises to deliver.

Questions & Answers
Hi unit was FDUA100 was installed last year and it seems to be more noisy this year.
Sorry to hear of the issues you're having.
Is it the indoor our outdoor unit that's making noise? If it's the outdoor unit you may want to check that it's level, secured to the ground, not rocking and that there isn't anything that may be knocking against the unit while in use.
You may also want to check with the installer to determine if the issue may be caused during installation. If you've checked the above and the issue remains (or the noise is coming from the indoor unit) we'd suggest submitting a request for a warranty call via the page below. Otherwise, you can contact us on 1300 138 007.
I have tried calling MHI several times and never received a call back (been waiting 5 months). I currently have the FDUA100VNP1VF2 and its too noisy. I have to change device and the FDUA100AVNVF2 has an outdoor sound pressure level of 49Db compared to 57dB with my original device. However, it says that the outdoor device is the same power, size etc. Can you tell me why the difference in sound rating (also they have the same Sound Power Level of 70db, so I really don't understand).
Sound power level is pretty much the raw sound energy produced at the unit, whereas the more commonly used sound pressure level is based on a set of conditions such as distance from unit , environmental conditions. etc. What you actually hear is the sound pressure level.
If your A/C sounds noisy , there are a number of things that can cause this including reflections from nearby walls etc. These reflections effectively magnify the sound. It may also be running flat out all the time which shouldn't really be happening unless the thermostat is set really low or the unit isn't big enough for the area.. Most A/Cs should ramp down after a while.
There should also be a quiet mode that these A/Cs can run in if the problem persists.
Sound pressure and sound power levels are different measurements so looking at the specifications, your new model would be slightly louder than your previous model.
If you believe the sound is excessive and there may be an issue, you can request a warranty service request by visiting the page below and leaving some details. We'll get an authorised service agent in your area to get in touch to arrange a time to come and assess the unit.
Whats better Mitsubishi FDUA Series or Mitsubishi Electric FDT Series
Get an answer from our members and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air-Conditioners representatives
The Mitsubishi FDUA Series is available in eight different models, ranging from 7.1kW to 20kW. The 7.1kW single phase is suitable for a smaller home, as it uses only one source of power with a reduced amount of energy. For more spacious homes, the three-phase 20kW unit may be better suited, as it draws energy from three sources of power.
Each air conditioner in the FDUA series allows you to control different air zones. If there are any empty rooms, you can help ensure that energy is not being wasted by turning the air conditioning down to a low setting or by shutting it off completely - while continuing to use the air conditioning in other rooms.
- Integrated air purifier reduces allergens caught in filters and controls growth of mould and bacteria. However, this AC isn’t self-cleaning - it requires a professional clean every couple of years to ensure that it’s working at optimal functionality.
- Wi-Fi operation optional, with separate purchase of a specialised adaptor
- Various timers, including an on/off timer and sleep mode
