Kogan Wifi Inverter Split System Air Conditioner
5 years warranty included
Original Coupon Deal
What an Ozbargain!
I think anything that is built / hardwired into your home at great expense should be from a decent brand.
Typing this from a crappy Dell keyboard I scavenged somewhere after the "w", "2", "3" and "4" keys of my Kogan mechanical keyboard spontaneously started failing today. Thankfully my keyboard is not built into the building.
Dupe really: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/606594
Ah free shipping though.
the Hyundai 8.4kW split system is a much better deal at the same price: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/606620
Better quality and 5 year Hyundai warranty
Link to compare prices for both:
The Kogan units are OEMed by Midea / GMCC while the Hyundai branded units are OEMed by TCL - both are imported and distributed by Kogan.
TCL is also the OEM for Euromatic (split system), AKAI and Stirling.
Midea / GMCC is the OEM for Carrier and Kelvinator.
So equally bad warranty for both?
Has anyone every made a successful warranty claim from Kogan?
In the history of the company?
can you install this yourself?
Depends who "you" is :-)
From accounts here, it's not that hard to do a better job than half the "professional" installers out there, e.g. sparkies with a limited ARCtick license.
But you do need a vacuum pump and some plumbing skills, as well as it being hard-wired. You can buy an install kit with pre-flared pipes, which helps. You need to be absolutely sure there are no leaks before releasing the gas inside.
Watching an overseas DIY youtube video might put you off.
