In search of a new air conditioner for your home? Mitsubishi, better known as the global Japanese automotive company, is also the maker of air conditioning units. If you’re familiar with Mitsubishi cars, you already know the kind of technical expertise that Mitsubishi puts into their automobiles. Picture the same technical know-how applied to creating air conditioning units, and you’ll have an idea why Mitsubishi air conditioners are top selling home appliances around the world.
If you know you’re interested in buying a Mitsubishi air conditioner, it can still be tedious and intimidating to have to sift through pages of models in search of the best deal for your home. Mitsubishi’s air conditioners have fairly nondescript names, which makes it harder to peruse the options and keep the details straight. Here is an overview of a few of the top-selling Mitsubishi air conditioning models, features, and prices. Hopefully once you’ve read through our findings you’ll have an easier time picking out a Mitsubishi air conditioner.
The Mitsubishi PCA-A24KA retails for about $1,600 online and is among Mitsubishi’s more expensive models. This air conditioner is actually an AC unit and heater in one—so you’re really getting two appliances for the price. If you already have a heater this probably isn’t the best choice, but if you need to purchase both it could save you money.
This unit comes with an auto-vane feature which helps the machine function more efficiently whether it is heating or cooling a room. While cooling, the vane will automatically self-adjust into a horizontal orientation. This enables the machine to circulate the cool air around the room in the most efficient manner, which can save energy. The same vane directs heat downward when you run the heater instead of the AC. Since warm air rises, this helps keep your whole room more comfortable and doesn’t waste energy. The unit is designed to help expel drafts from your room.
The Mitsubishi PCA-A24KA is definitely a higher-end indoor item; it provides you with a number of settings to optimize your comfort level, and is designed to be easy to adjust to your needs.
The Mitsubishi MSY-GE15NA is a less expensive air conditioner priced around $740.00. This unit does not double as a heater. This is a stand-up unit which you place on the floor along a wall, and which doesn’t take up a lot of space. The unit is designed not only to be minimally intrusive to the eyes, but also to the ears; it was built to be very quiet, which is why many customers purchase it for settings like libraries and offices. This is an indoor-outdoor unit, which won’t make it appropriate for all rooms and settings. For your home, you might purchase it for a sunroom for example, but not for an upstairs bedroom.
This is a less expensive air conditioner but it also has somewhat more limited and specific applications than some of Mitsubishi’s other models. It’s a great choice if you need to run a quiet unit in a public space or if you can fit the indoor-outdoor system into your home setting in a sunroom or similar space. For more general purposes it may not be the best choice. A similar unit is the Mitsubishi MS-A09WA Mr. Slim Wall Mounted Indoor Unit Air Handle. This unit is even less expensive at just $530.00.
The Mitsubishi MXZ-8B48NA is among Mitsubishi’s most expensive offerings at around $3,770. This is an outdoor AC unit which has offers the unique capability to set the temperature for every room in a house at a different level. It’s a good solution for a home or office setting, and everyone will be able to enjoy setting the temperature to their optimum comfort level. This unit doubles as a heater for the winter.
The Mitsubishi MXZ-8B48NA is an air conditioner and heater which is ideal for a multi-room setup. It would be overkill for heating a small, undivided space, but it’s an excellent choice if you want a top of the line luxury heating and cooling system for your multi-room home or office.
As the name implies, the Mitsubishi MSZFE12NA is a small unit which is indoor-only. It doubles as a heater, and only retails at about $648.00! Think of the Mitsubishi PCA-A24KA, but this one mounts on your wall instead of your ceiling and doesn’t include as many bells and whistles, resulting in a lower price.
Now you should have a better idea of what Mitsubishi has to offer. While shopping for your next air conditioner, ask yourself how large an area you need to heat or cool and also whether you want an indoor unit, outdoor unit, or combination indoor-outdoor window unit. Figure out how many extra features you want or need, and then select the best Mitsubishi air conditioner to fulfill your personal or professional needs!
