Medium unit with a lot of grunt
I wasn't sure if we had bought a big enough unit at the time and was tossing up between this one and the 7KW for our kitchen/dining area. I also have my home office off the kitchen so needed this to do a good job. It does! We are on a rural property with no gas connection so everything we have is electric and it needs to work. The heating is excellent in winter and the unit performs well to cool the area down on the hottest days. It did cost a lot to install as we had a tricky situation, but the cost of purchasing is now long forgotten as it continues to do a great job nearly two years on.
- SRK50ZMA-S (5.0kW)
Not bad at all. Quite happy with the performance, especially the noise level is opposite to none. You will never even notice its on. Energy consumption is not mich too after getting our first bill and had been using the air con quite a bit the energy bill still wasnt altered much.
After over 2 years of ownership no complaints. Reliable, quiet. No problems with installation at all. Purchased when we moved into a new house. Heats and cools the room well as desired. Would recommend to others. Simple, easy to use remote control. Would purchase again. Satisfied customer as of yet.
We upgraded our air conditioning to this model to ensure our house would remain the perfect temperature for a our new baby. It has definitely delivered! We are impressed with just how far the one unit to cool and heat most rooms in our home just from the central positioning in the lounge room. We are incredibly happy with our dedication to upgrade to this model.
:Powerful and Quite
Both cooling and heating are very efficient for a large area
Unit is very quite, only when fan is a top speed can you hear a slight whirring
Installation was easy with the outside unit mounted on the roof
I have preset my favourites and they can be varied very easily from the main button on the control
Only extra that I would like is that the vents could swing left to right as well as up and down to move the air more efficiently to the far corners of the room
Really good purchase, quiet and efficient
Mitsubishi have made a really good product here, it's easy to use and quickly cools down our house. The one 5kw system in the kitchen does the job nicely. Inverters are quiet and efficient, with the engine sitting out on the rear deck, out of the way. We use it for heating in winter also, and it performs well.
Questionable build quality
Have this hook up to dual head units for two adjacent bedrooms. One is quiet but the other has noise from day one. It sounds like fan blade was continually rubbing against something.
On a really hot day it struggles to cool down two small bedrooms.
Also the AI maybe too smart, it prevents cooling if you try it on cool day.
Cooling and heating up the place really quickly, very quiet, sleek design and very easy and intuitive controls. Loving the timer option! Quite fare price for this type of unit. It was a real saviour when we had +45C this year. We bought two units about a year ago and they perfectly condition the whole two bedroom house.

Cooling performance is great, as soon as it is switched on you can feel the room start cooling instantly. Have only purchased just before Christmas (summer) therefore have not used heat setting yet.
Both indoor and outdoor unit is quiet, only a minor humming sound and when on lowest speed you cant hear it at all.
Installation was straight forward for the installer, only took approx 1.5 hrs.
It is easy to use with remote control, has eco mode, on & off timer, sleep timer, adjustable swing mode, and other functions.

Questions & Answers
I have this un it ,4 yrs old , just had a PC Board damaged by Gecko wee , what is MHI doing for vermin protection ?this has been going on for years !! ,does this unit have the sealant applied ? & what future advancements are in store for us qld's with abundant gecko's ,
Really sorry to hear of the issues you've had.
Over the last few years, we've made a number of improvements to our systems to try reduce the damage pest ingress can cause. This includes an improved chassis and grille design as well as the application of a silicone layer to all PCB boards to reduce circuit shortage in the event of pests entering the outdoor unit.
While we've seen an improvement in the number of issues, unfortunately air conditioners, including their internal components, require good airflow to operate meaning they cannot be completely sealed. This in turn makes it extremely difficult to make air conditioners 100% pest proof.
If you have house and home insurance you may wish to speak to your provider to determine if this is covered under their policy.
I just want to say thank you to Mitsubishi for approving the warranty ,I was worried it would not go through.. well done to you
Is the-SRK50ZMA S Mitsubishi approved by the Australian lung foundation to be safe for persons with Chronic pulmonary disease Bronchiactisis & Asthma. We have 2 x SRK50ZMA units running about 16 hours per day in bedroom & living areas. We usually clean the two white mesh panels but not sure what else needs cleaning. We are in Port Stephens area.
I don't know
I have a 7.1 kw unit.
Contact the foundation.
As far as we're aware, the SRK50ZMA hasn't been approved by the Australian Lung Foundation.
As well as the two white mesh filters you mention, there should also be two additional orange coloured filters within the indoor unit.
One of these is the Allergen Clear Filter which is designed to capture and neutralise allergens, bacteria and viruses while the other is the Photocatalytic Deodorising filter which is designed to capture other particle such as fine smoke and neutralises odours.
We recommend you replace both of these at least orange filters annually. You can purchase these filters from our spare parts supplier MRE spares. I have included a link below to your system. The two filters mentioned above are part RKT437A005  and RKT437A801D .
We hope this helps but if you have any other questions, please let us know.
I believe there is a Mitsubishi air con approved by the Aust Lung Foundation. Would you advise which model please?
Who do I contact to hire an air con cleaner?
Could you please give me the dimentions of the 5kw mitsubishi Split system aircon SRK ZMP series
The SRK50ZMA (5.0kW model) indoor unit is 294mm x 798mm x 229mm and the outdoor unit is 640mm x 800(+71)mm x 290mm. Hope this helps!
