Not really fit for purpose

published

The key info is on p15 of the manual. "Operating Temperature for Cooling -15 to +46". Its often 46C and higher, that's why we installed aircon. But, of course it doesn't work on hot days, as it cuts out at 46C.

Hi, We're sorry you believe the system doesn't suit your needs. Almost all split systems in Australia do have an operating temperature limit of 46c however we've just sent you a message to discuss further.

Perfect for my small cottage

published

cottage 26 feet across x 30 feet deep, a semi-detached home. The unit is installed in the front living room and air flows through a doorway into the kitchen, the long reach Bronte 6.3 Kw is magic. Living Room 19C, Kitchen 22C and back bedroom 24C with outside temperature 40C. Unit $1,600 from installer and $1,000 installation which took 8 hours. Waiting on invoice to confirm proof of purchase. Model is DXC21ZRA-W. It is recommended by CHOICE.

Purchased in January 2020 for $1,600.00.

Should have got it sooner!

published

Although the largest in the MHD range and one of the biggest available for domestic use it is not an overly large indoor unit. It is in fact the same dimensions as the smaller 8kw unit which is one of the reasons I decided I may as well go for the more powerful 9.5kw. The size and simple plain design stops it being a focal point in the room and on low fan settings its virtually noiseless. The multi directional handset controlled vanes are very effective and direct the air where you want it. It seems a great machine and good value given the MHD reputation for high quality. Hopefully here's to many years of fault free running.

Great AC for cooling and heating

Installed x2 of these in our lounge and formal rooms. They come as life savers on really hot days where the evaporative system really struggles! Not the cheapest on the market but highly recommended by many.

Good temperature control

published

We bought this unit in June, so now we've had a chance to test it for cooling and heating. It has passed in both tasks, we get a comfortable room fairly quickly. My one quibble is that the lateral airflow direction changes don't work very well, most of the air still seems to flow out straight ahead. The vertical louvres work very well, though. I'd buy it again.

Purchased in June 2020 at Airconditioning online for $1,780.00.

Should hav replaced the old one years ago.

published

Covers a big area really well. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries air conditioners seem to be better than the plain Mitsubishi air cons and surprisingly for the same capacity unit ( 71 KW) it was hundreds of dollars cheaper. So quiet and the fan is great covering a wider area than others. Supposed to work to more temperature extremes than others I looked at.

September 26th 2020 Update: Brilliant Don't know why I didn't upgrade sooner.

Surprisingly quiet and efficient and has a great fan. Don't freeze anymore. Already electricity costs have gone down because of its efficiency. Good value for money as similar units were often hundreds of dollars dearer.

Purchased in August 2020 at The Good Guys for $1,749.00.

This is perfect

published

This is my second Mitsubishi air con. was confused to buy 6.3kw.installer advised 5.0kw will cool but little under. So I choose bronte series. Cools whole house. Only one thing when I put on low speed I hear weird air sound. Its not vibration. Only notice if you hear very carefully otherwise very quiet.
All together it’s much cheaper then diakin.

Efficient and Silent

We installed this air conditioner downstairs where we have a large open plan area. It cools the entire area on a very hot day and disperses cold air throughout the house efficiently. We are very happy with this purchase!

Perfect! Powerful, quiet, EXTREMELY powerful fan.

published

Huge cost saving, sips energy
Quiet for a unit of this size
Quick cooling
No problems, PERFECT product
Fan is INSANLY powerfull! Great for spreading cool air over a massive open plan area.
No doubt MHI make the best split systems (Panasonic 2nd best).
Very cheap, 7.1KW at Bunnings is only $1550 and is sometimes cheaper. Most other A/C's that aren't as good cost about 1600/1700 for a 7.1KW.

Very Good Unit

published

Installed in the top end of the house. Its a big unit but also a big space. Heaps of power and seems to cope easily. Cools a large room and two bedrooms, and plenty of cool air flowing to the rest of the house. Only needed a 5kw unit to supplement in the front of the house. Its quiet and air flow is huge. Very happy

Works very effectively

published

Powerful but very quiet air conditioning unit. It seemed huge when it came out of the boxes, but apparently that's what I needed for my open plan living area! Lots of features and functions, which I haven't really used yet but I'm sure one day I will read the instruction manual properly and find out what they all do! Main thing is that it cools the room down really quickly, which is great.

Great Product

published

This is working well after finally getting it installed. Was going to do it myself but even though I'm handy it needed an HVAC guy to cut and flair the lines and do the pressure check. I also hired someone else to put the electric box outside., which is typical I think.
The unit itself is great. Has a small temperature readout on the unit and the remote is easy to use. Yes it's very quiet. We have it in a small office and you can hear the fan when it's above the minimum speed but we're right next to it. Still it's not bad at all. the outside unit is especially quiet!

So quiet!

We had this unit installed between Christmas and New Year to replace an old ducted evaporative cooler. It cools our open plan living area quickly and quietly. The outside unit is very quiet too, we hardly notice it.

So Far So Good

published

Installed yesterday, so giving it a good test today. So far working well. Fan a little noisy when first on to help cool the room down fairly quickly, then it is relatively quiet. This was a replacement unit for a fujitsu so it was following the positioning of the previous unit and this made it a little awkward for the installer as this is a bigger unit than the previous one. Controls seems easy to use, though still working my way through the settings.

Great unit fast cooling, very quiet

published

We recently had our split system installed for the summer and so far we are impressed with the unit. Compared to other splits systems we have had in the past, the outside compresser is very quiet and the start up of the unit very fast. When we tested it out, it got very cool quickly so I look forward to using it over the summer! The controller is easy to use and the unit sits flush on the wall. So far very happy with it!

Bronte SRK71ZRA-W (7.1kW)

What is the difference between SRK71ZRA-W and DXK24ZRA-A-W? Choice has rated the former but no listing for the latter.

1 answer
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Glen A.Mitsubishi Heavy Industries

Hi Sue,

The model numbers are slightly different depending on where you purchase the unit from however the SRK71ZRA-W and DXK24ZRA-W are exactly the same model (technical specifications, remote, features/functions, etc.). The CHOICE recommendations were given prior to the DXK model being released however it wold still apply to the 7.1kW Bronte model.

Hope this helps but if you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to let me know!

Bronte SRK71ZRA-W (7.1kW)

I bought an SRK71ZRA-W Bronte series last week. Your user manual for that model, on page 15 Cool/Heat/Dry/Fan Mode operation, recommends setting Cool range at 26c -28c & Heat range 22c - 24c Surely the cool range figures are a mistake! Surely you mean 16c - 18c ?

Hi Neil,

The temperatures given in the manual are recommendations to provide a comfortable temperature while also providing the best energy efficiency. Of course everyone is different so if you find it is still too warm, you can set the temperature lower (say 21c-22c) however the unit will then use more power.

The Bronte Brochure says the 6.3 will do 50 sq mtrs if you have an insulated roof and brick veneer or full brick cladding. Look for the bronte brochure on line and download the PDF and confirm for yourself.

Hi Terry, There are quite a few factors to consider when sizing up a unit for your home so we'd recommend referring to our handy room sizing chart which you can find online here -https://mhiaa.com.au/document/srkdxk-room-sizing-chart/. We'd also recommend chatting to one of our authorised installers who can provide some recommendations and a quote.
