Air conditioner man here my house today. Need 1ton unity in bedroom and 2ton unit for living, dinning kitchen area. He said I would have to buy 2 refrigerator units for the roof as well. Isn’t there a refrigerator unit that will accept to indoor units?Do you have model that can take to indoor blower units?

Sounds like an installer problem , not a Mitsubishi one ! Can't see how you can blame them ~ they had no idea of your house "condition". Does anyone make a domestic heat pump capable of 16kw ?? We have just ordered the GL80 and our installer did the calculations. If it doesn't cope (which I'm sure it will) ~ it is his head that will roll, not Mitsubishi's !
I agree, this review of his installer has nothing to do with the product. If product review had any thoughts of being useful they need to take stuff like this down
I also agree. The product is "unaware" of its intended location. So, an 8KW system could (to take it to the extreme) be installed in an outdoors football stadium and clearly it would not do the trick. On the other hand it would perform brilliantly in your en-suite. It is not the manufacture's fault. Mitsubishi have a great reputation, second to none - just take a look at CHOICE's review of a/c units as an example. We have one unit and another on the way. Mr Bishi, you're the one for us !
Can someone please confirm whether this 2.5kW unit has only one vent panel at the top and there is a gap at the bottom or it supposed to have two vent panels?
I've just had one installed today in my office at work and it definitely has 1 panel only, leaving a gap at the bottom. It's a little weird actually, but as I haven't even turned it off yet, I hadn't noticed myself. It's early days for me, but I'm thrilled so far. It's doing its job very well, and very quietly.
what is the outdoor unit height width and depth?

Hi Jim T,
Thank you for your inquiry.
The dimensions of the MUZ-GL71VGD is as follows:
Height - 880 mm
Wight - 840 mm
Depth - 330 mm
Here is the link to the MSZ-GL Series Product Flyer for more information: http://www.mitsubishielectric.com.au/assets/LEG/Flyer_MSZ-GL_Aug-2016.pdf
Hope this helps.
Is this a heater also?
Are they expensive to run 24/7 in winter on 24 degrees?
We just had a child, so the aircon runs about 18 hours a day set on 23 degrees
We've noticed a jump of about $15-20 to our regular bill (economy setting).. 5 star rating is great! (2.5kw)
Also a note, the cooling is amazing!
The power required to run the MSZ-GL71VGD (my unit) in heating mode is a maximum of 2.2kw with a maximum heat output of 9.9kw so the efficiency is 450% and the heat output enormous. Once the desired temperature is attained (23 degrees) the output and input will drop dramatically as the motor is an inverter. Anything you run 24/7 will cost but no other heater will match the efficiency.
Standard electric heaters either bar, convection or oil filled have a maximum efficiency of 100% or less so would cost up to 10 times more than the aircon unit for the same level of heating. These heaters only run at full power so you would have to have them on a thermostat to stop & start them. The best you could achieve would be 500% to 600% more expensive than the MSZ-GL unit.
Just bought a mitsubishi 3.5 MSZGL35VGDKIT for my bedroom.I am wondering if I made the right choice.
The 3.5 is the right size for a normal sized bedroom and the GL series is super efficient and very quiet. (latest model for 2016/17)
IMHO I think you have made an excellent choice.
I am in Brisbane and have learnt the best approach is to get the installer to supply the AC unit as well as install.
My preferred installer/supplier is Wattec.
