Modern homes are looking for more than just heating and cooling options when it comes to climate control these days. Atesh Mani, National Product Manager at Mitsubishi Electric Australia, explained that now more than ever Australians want an air conditioner that does more. As technology advances, people are looking for appliances that keep their health and wellness needs front and centre.

Installing a reverse cycle split system air conditioner is the perfect choice for many homes during winter. The Mitsubishi Electric AP Series now comes in a more extensive range of sizes to suit most spaces, ranging from the MSZ-AP20 for small home offices right up to the MSZ-AS90 suitable for open plan living areas. But what do you need to look for when it comes to extra features when buying a split system?

Dual Barrier Coating

Dirt and dust are the two of the biggest enemies of air conditioners as they slow down the machine and fail to heat or cool the room.

The AP Series combats this by using Dual Barrier Coating on the heat exchanger and facial surfaces that reduce dust and greasy dirt from adhering to it. This Mitsubishi Electric designed technology helps the unit stay cleaner for longer and makes cleaning the unit easier.

Anti-Allergy Enzyme Filter

Delivering clean, fresh, and healthy air is a priority for us all. The newest to the series, the AS90 uses a built-in Anti-Allergy Enzyme Filter which works to trap allergens such as mould and bacteria by using enzymes to decompose them, giving you extra peace of mind.

Far-reaching airflow

Not only does the MSZ-AS90 have long and wide airflow options, but also Powerful Mode, ensuring far-reaching coverage to every corner of the room, an important feature to look for in large open living and working spaces.

Wi-Fi Control

Unlock the door to smarter heating and cooling via Wi-Fi Control[1]. This innovative technology connects the Mitsubishi Electric air conditioner to the user’s smartphone, tablet or online account, giving you the freedom to fully control each unit on the go via an internet connection, perfect for when you want your room at the ideal temperature when you arrive home.

Night Mode

Night mode is a selectable function via the remote control that is designed to increase comfort at night. This is achieved by reducing the LED brightness on the indoor unit, disabling the alert beeps, and reducing the outdoor units operational noise levels by up to 3dB.
