Mitsu models the current basic inverter is now JS series.
There is a difference in the design - some model is designed to fight on entry level price point - some model maximise everything for you - not all 1hp is built the same, as such even the BTU capacity design differs.
The 9000 btu type doesn't cool as well as a 9700 btu nominal.
This is why if the 1.5hp is quite cheap (in the case where the basic 1.0 hp is on the smaller side 9000, and 1.5hp model is reasonably priced a.k.a. similar as other brands' 1.0hp) for a larger room to be cooled, can always consider taking the 1.5hp to avoid disappointment. From my experience my higher btu 1.5hp (12640 nominal, turbo upto 14330) is perfect for my living room whereas some neighbours in the same project were complaining their 1.5hp (on the lower end of btu performance say turbo up to 9895) not good enough and advised me to use a 2hp instead.
Hence newer isn't always better if both the newer and older are also R32 inverter.
Out of current series the JS one (basic) doesn't have Easy Clean. Only GR and higher premium series got.
However, JP series is still available on shopee and other online stores by electrical shops.
These specs are from Mitsu website.. I have no idea why their basic 1hp consumes more running amps than the same series' 1.5hp
Bro, thanks for the input! For some reason, all my Mitsubishi quotes I gotten was JP or JS, none gave me GR so I assumed all the R32 inverters no longer have Easy Clean... even my friend who works at Mitsubishi Malaysia also just told me JP discontinued, replaced by JS walao
. The one that still has JP series, only sells Mitsubishi units... I wanted the Daikin cassette so have to take from another shop but that one doesn't have JP anymore.
Will check the comparison between GR and Panasonic XPU series, haven't finalized my airconds... mixture of wall mounts and cassette to install.This post has been edited by celciuz: Feb 8 2021, 09:04 AM
