Diamond Air was called out to a Mt Maunganui, Bay of Plenty, property for a Mitsubishi heat pump repair recently. On inspection, we discovered that this 9-year-old GE50 Mitsubishi heat pump needed a new compressor and a new circuit board installed into the outside condenser.
The parts had failed due to their age and is to be expected as general wear and tear over time. Otherwise, the heat pump was in great condition – a testament to Mitsubishi Electic's superior technology and build quality. You can see the evidence of this is the photo gallery below.
And thanks to Mitsubishi's excellent service department, older parts are relatively easy to get a hold of. In our experience, this is not always the case with other heat pump brands.
All of this added up to a saving for the home owner – this older Mitsubishi heat pump was well worth repairing. All too often we must throw away an older, malfunctioning heat pump and install a new one, due the the lack of available parts.
Given the age of the heat pump unit, this is an excellent case study that supports our belief that Mitsubishi heat pumps truly are the best on the market for quality, performance and value for money.
