Hisense is bringing six models developed by its local R&D team in response to Australia’s unique climate – they will operate at up to 50°.
This is the third new category it has launched in the Australian market in 2019 showing this challenger brand is happy to take on the likes of Samsung, Sony and LG – as well as defend its turf from another Chinese company TCL that shares similar aspirations. It is like Churchill’s, “We will fight them on the beaches…”
Initially, the eco-friendly, 5-year warranty, range starting
from $799 will be available from Good Guys from November.

“Reliable cooling solutions are incredibly important to Australian consumers with its long and hot summers. With a sleek minimalistic design, quiet function and efficient performance, the range of both reverse cycle and cooling-only units offer Australians even more choice to find an air conditioner that best suits their home and lifestyle.”
“Australia is a vast continent with multiple climate zones, from the southern states which typically experience mild weather patterns to the hot and humid tropical weather of the north. Due to the sheer size of the country, consumers have different heating and cooling needs.”
