  • Do you know model number for 7.1kw

  • They have the 2.5 for $748 so it would be $673 with $100 cashback on top also..
    EDIT - its out of stock and also, they charge a fair bit for delivery…

  • Are you in Victoria? Are you price matching by phone and then getting a quote for installation?

    • brisbane over the phone, i dont see them having a vic store so might be a little harder.

      • Who are you getting to do the install, I'm in Brisbane too

        • I'll wait until I actually get the unit before getting quotes.
          I was told there is about a month waiting period for the 2.0kw units.
          I'll try the link someone else posted from Gumtree.

          • @Ntense: Hi mate did u get the MHI 2kw unit from Bunnings? It’s been over a month and I still have not received the unit , Bunnings told me the supplier keeps pushing back the new stock delivery

            • @sub7er: @sub7er: I picked mine up on Wednesday! About a week ago I was also told the supplier keeps pushing back stock and that I may have to wait until end of Nov! I ordered mine on 3/10. I hope you get yours soon!

  • Great deal I did the same last year at Bunnings :) Happy with MHI

  • can anyone post bunnings receipt ?

  • What’s the rough estimate of install costs?

  • The prices on Lawsons seem ridiculously cheap??

    https://www.lawsonair.com.au/fujitsu-astg09lvcc-2.5-kw-rever...

    For $300??

    Perfect for a bedroom, with say $600 install, $900 all up is pretty all right!

    Edit: This is indoor unit only. Not sure why you'd only buy indoor unit, perhaps for a multi split setup.

  • some says mitsubishi electric is better?

    • Better looking internal unit maybe, not much else

    • Been told by multiple installers that ME is better, stay away from MHI.

      • I have been told the same by a few installers. And the salesperson at HN and JB Not sure if it’s due to profit advantage or technological advantage hence the ask.

      • Installers all have their preferences for differing reasons (some get better rates, closest supplier only stocks certain ones so they push it, wanting to clear stock or hit targets, bad run with a certain model or a rep for them, amount of "smart features" easier to sell etc). My brother has been doing this work for years and rates ME and MHI pretty similar, along with Fujitsu. That's just from a quality perspective. The rest he won't touch unless a customer supplies it and just doing the install. But like anything not all models/series are as good as others within the same brand and sometimes there are just bad eggs.

        All the research i did last year indicates the same (as i didnt find my brothers feedback terribly useful at the time, was trying to narrow down to 1). I went with a 2.5KW reverse cycle MHI SRK25ZA for our bedroom last summer and so far been happy with it. Also went with 2 x Fujitsu at another family members place and they've been happy so far as well. I would say the MHI remote kinda sucks, buttons don't sit quite right and sometimes need to re-press, could just be mine. But otherwise its good and quiet. The remote for the Fujitsu is much better. From memory the MHI was able to move air 360degrees motion or something where as the equivalement Fujitsu was more limited, which was one of the reasons i went with it. But i'd say just check the features you want go with that.

  • Just be aware this doesn’t seem to be an inverter.

  • Can anyone recommend a reasonable priced & reliable air-con installer in Brisbane area? Thank you~~~

  • Anyone know why the input wattage seems to have been dropped from all these air conditioner specs? I’m trying to put together a proposal to my landlord to have my unit air conditioned this summer but it’s nearly impossible to find the input watts even on the official spec sheets so I can work out the running costs.

    Last time I went through this process the input watts was always shown when looking for air con units but I’m wondering if in the last few years there has been some sort of regulatory change where they don’t show it now for some particular reason.

  • Cheers OP, looking at the 2kw MHI unit, with cash back and Bunnings price match it comes to $494 for the unit!

    • On the phone price matching 2x right now (BNE), I would call ASAP if you haven't already as Bunnings may drop their price to avoid having to price match.

  • Anyone in VIC manage to get Bunnings to match?

  • Could anyone recommend a good aircon installer in Brisbane?

      • Fallon are a rip-off in brisbane. Then wanted more then double for installing my air-con, compared to 2 other quotes I got

        • The question was "a good aircon installer"… not a cheap one.

          • @Logical: So what makes Fallon good installers?

            • @BlitzR: They will come on time.
              Guaranteed installation by a licensed professional as opposed to a backyard dodgy guy
              You get a warranty on the installation
              One phone call away if any trouble

              • @Logical: The 2 installers that I've used in the past have been licensed professionals, on time and have both had guarantees on the workmanship (even though I've never had to use it because I've never needed too) with proper invoices. Just because the installers are half the inflated price that Fallon charge, doesn't been they are backyard dodgy guys. But hey, if you want to be ripped off, keep using Fallon.

  • Good find, I was about to jump on the 5kw unit as I need a new one for my lounge but it’s only 2.5 stars!

    • You need to size it right though, maybe a 3.5kw unit is too small for your lounge.

      • Yeah it is, that’s why I wanted the 5kw unit. But the money I save now will be spent on electricity over the next few summers for sure.

        • Not so much electricity use, it's the fact a smaller unit may not be physically able to cool the room sufficiently.

          Am I understanding you correctly that you were initially going for a 5kw unit but now chose the 3.5kw as it is cheaper?

          • @placard: No, I saw this deal for 3.5kw, and checked if there was a good price for the 5kw which I need. There is a great price which could be beaten at bunnings, but the star rating is so low for the 5kw model that it’s not worthwhile for me. If I needed a 3.5kw model this would be perfect but my lounge is too big for the 3.5kw.
            So no, didn’t buy, 3.5kw is too small.

  • What would be an optipn that is one bigger than this one

  • if anyone needs to pick up from Melbourne, I find this ebay seller is good:

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MHI-SRK-SRC35ZSA-3-5kW-Reverse-C...

    Slightly more expensive but you can make offer on ebay. Last time i got the 1.7Kw system for $550 down from their $579 price. They have a massive warehouse in Scoresby and they are approved reseller for MHI so you can claim the $100 cashback. Their trading name is AirVic i believe, this is their website http://www.airvic.com.au/

    If anyone only needs a smaller unit, this one looks very nice

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MHI-SRK-SRC20ZMXA-2kW-Cool-2-5kW...

    More efficient than the Avanti, however it doesn't have cash back offer. I'm tossing between the 2 units.

    • We got the little 1.7kw unit from AirVic for a 15m2 bedroom - brilliant unit and easily heats/cools without a struggle. AirVic was easy to deal with and arranged for pickup (pre-covid).
      Have to buy another couple of units, so may make some offers on Ebay today.

      • The 1.7kw unit doesn't get $100 cashback, i think it's better off to get the 2.0kw, it's slightly more efficient and you can get for similar price after cashback.

    • Last time i got the 1.7Kw system for $550 down from their $579 price.

      No you haven't. "I managed to have offer of $565 accepted, then with $50 ebay coupon, it came to $515."

  • Can price match with bunning perth?

  • Can someone tell me how installers wire new circuits? I assume there would be a lot of drilling the walls?

    My circuit breaker is in the garage and about 10-12m to where i want the aircon installed…

  • +1 vote

    Got 6 quotes a few months ago for back to back install of 1.5kw system, weatherboard, timber frame, no asbestos (newer build) in Brisbane, and all of them were from $700-$1200 range. It seems very expensive to install AC now compared to 2 years ago which was the last one I had installed for half that price. Odd.

    • Yep, I helped my Dad sell his house earlier this year he and wanted to get a 20year old 2.5kw Daikin Reverse split replaced for the sale. It was a simple job as everything was already in place… all holes drilled, pad in position, pipework all sorted, dedicated circuits run, isolation switch in-line… the works but it still ended up costing $2000. Absolute rip-off! I was floored. It's no wonder more & more people are educating themselves and DIYing these types of jobs.

  • just rang bunnings acacia ridge and was told they had them on promotion for $875
