I have no idea what it is in kW. It's 18,000 BTU.

Just looked it up. Your 7 kW is 23884.994 BTU. Our 18,000 BTU is 5.2752786959 kW.

Quite fancy!!! Wish I could get something like that, but I am sure the landlord would have a fit.

Well, they would have to drill a hole in your wall. But, the landlord should be grateful if you were willing to pay to have that installed. Could charge the next tenant extra. I know that if I was the landlord (and I have been a landlord), I would be delighted to have my tenants install ductless AC.

So yours must be a 5kw I am guessing

It is good as you get the size to suit the size of the room...the area we have ours in is very open plan, so a big area so we needed the bigger size

It seems to be plenty for the size of our house. The guy who came and gave us the price didn't think we needed more than 12,000 BTU, but I would rather have a bit more than we need than not enough.

That is why they make clever wall covers.

Yes, a little bit more is always the way to go

We also have ducted evaporative cooling that is throughout the whole house, but we got a refrigerated split system for the muggy days in Summer when the evaporative just doesnt cut it as it is too humid
