Value for money efficient air conditioner
We've had this since late 2017, really performs well in our high ceiling queenslander. The external unit is underneath the house, it's really quiet. We've been using during the winter months and the heating cycle works well and is cost efficient to run, uses less kwh then our oil heater. Have some problems with the ac remote, sometimes can stop working (have replaced batteries), have to turn the remote on and off to change the temperature or use other remote options, this doesn't happen very often. I would buy this brand again.
Really Happy with Product and Service
Great at cooling down our open plan living/dining/kitchen. I don’t find it’s as good at heating, but I tend to get cold easily.
We had an issue recently where the air conditioner started making a strange noise and Mitsubishi sent out a repair guy straight away who fixed it - they were very easy to deal with.
Quick quiet warmth
Almost instant warmth. Very quiet operation and heats a big living area. It complements the old gas heater I have but I always put it on first thing in the morning while I get breakfast. Summer is coming and I look forward to the air conditioner cooling the family room and also my bedroom. Love the white colour, it blends nicely with my white European blinds and looks unobtrusive.
The Ice Box
I am very happy with the product. It starts up quickly and quietly. Cooling a 48sq/m area in just seconds. Heating a 48sq/m area in under a minute. The installation was quick and efficient. Note to installing the outside unit-have a cement area placed in situ prior to installation, otherwise the electricians will use a plastic mount system. The unit is very simple to use and very user friendly. Product installation note for all Mitsubishi Air Conditioners-when the electrician install the unit make sure they silicone all piping and electrical ar...eas outside and inside. Spray Lanolin to all external areas around base of unit to prevent ants making their nest inside unit on main system board. If ants make their nest inside the unit and damage it, it is not covered under warranty and you will be up for a new system board (not cheap). Mitsubishi Heavy Industries advises all their installers of this requirement, but I had a local electrician install mine at the request of the store I bought it off (not a happy camper).
Good and convenient
Yes I am happy with the unit's cooling and heating performance.
The unit has reasonable noisy that it could be well accepted.
The installation was not good. It was actually leaking gas at the first time. So I had to call the installer again to fix it. And it took him three times to finally fix it.

Fantastic product - so glad I purchased
This is a very efficient and quite economical split system and I'm very happy that we purchased and installed. Seems to work extremely well - very quick to heat the majority of our quite large house, while being very quiet. The only issue is the amount of condensation, but I guess it's just pulling moisture from the air - will have to pipe this out to our garden using some kind of hose. All-in-all though, great split system which will be used in our household primarily for heating during winter, rather than our gas ducted heating.
Quiet and so good at cooling in the 40 degree temps of late
Awesome air con unit. Very happy, works amazing, so quiet even on the maximum speed, etc. Install was quick and easy, the guys only took a few hours to install. Easy to use remote. I highly recommend this unit. After reading the Choice reviews and seeing it was number 1 for being quiet and energy efficient I didn't hesitate. I have bought Mitsubishi before and never had any problems so I trust the brand.
Very happy with the SRK63ZMA-S
We have this installed in our apartment living room and we are very happy with it!
On low-medium fan speed the indoor and outdoor units are whisper quiet, so much so that we aren't worried about noise for the neighbours late at night. Even on medium/high the sound is unobtrusive.
Great features and works perfectly!

AHHHHH - No going back now!
Our house is all wrong! We planned it soooo carefully too. Massive double storey, designed having utter regard for sustainable practices - heaps of windows to take advantage of the breezes, northerly aspect.
It was being built on a little rise on our 13 acre rural block, and we were going it alone with our power. The grid was only 80 metres away, but we went with a stand alone battery solar system. There was NEVER going to be A/C - we had followed all the guidelines, so we'd never need it!!
Our house would have been just perfect by the se...a. It isn't by the sea. What's the use of a hundred large picture windows if the breeze is preheated to an industrial 44 degrees? Those first few years were sheer hell (literally!). We spent $18K putting in roller shutters on the main huge windows, which helped but all of our chocolate still melted - sacrilege and the thermometer showed a drop from 43 degrees inside in summer to a much better (!!) 39. So when the gov't announced they were gonna pay 44c per Kw exported from rooftop solar back in 2011 we grabbed the opportunity, threw 81 panels on our roof and put in a 15Kw grid connect/feed system.
Questions & Answers
Where do you buy replacement air filters
how big an area will it heat and cool efficiently?
Firstly there are actually two of them. Secondly, I've never used them for heating ... only cooling. We have a slow combustion wood heater, and it does the job beautifully and with a lot more charm.
The area that the two units cover is impossible for us to measure, but I will say that it is MASSIVE. Split level house (huge), open plan. The units are mounted upstairs and service the upper rooms, then spill down to the lower storey via a cavernous void situated between them. The ceilings above are split level and raked. As I said in the review the cool air even goes right down the lower level hallway and into the bedrooms.
This may not be of much use to you if you require physical dimensions .. but most aircon websites will have a calculator where you can enter your area's dimensions and other environmental attributes if this is what you need.
What I will say, and as I said in the review ... is that we were surprised in a happy way that the units perform as well as they do. It was beyond expectations, and we wish we had done it a lot earlier!!
