Singer AC2122A

SOLEUS AIR --------<1*----------NA

The KY120 model is a basic cool only unit that uses a bucket for condensate collection instead of an automatic removal system. The units have electronic controls with a remote but their guarantee is not very good when compared to other brands. They are available through many discount retailers as well as various online stores.


These air conditioners are made and sold in Singapore by CAHAYA ELECTRONICS PTE LTD.

They offer two sizes of units and feature electronic controls with a remote. Their website is not much help and, although the warranty on the compressor is very good, the guarantee on other parts is not when compared to other brands. sona.com.sg


These air conditioners are from a joint venture between Midea and Carrier.

The units are sold in Brazil but are only available in one size. They have electronic controls with a temperature sensing remote as well as oscillating louvers to better distribute the air. The units have a built-in ionizer for better indoor air quality but their website is not much help and does not have a stated warranty policy. 


Springer Nova

STIEBEL ELTRON----<1*-----------NA

This brand offers two sizes of units that have electronic controls but their website is not much help and does not have a stated warranty policy. stiebel-eltron.de


This brand offers both single and dual hose models that can be purchased directly through their website. The WA-1350DE models have electronic controls and self-evaporating condensate technology so that you do not have to dump a condensate bucket. They feature digital controls but only a basic washable filter which does not do much to clean the air. 

The WA-1420H model is a basic single hose heat pump which requires a continuous condensate drain connection when operating in the heat mode. The units are relatively noisy during operation and their warranty is not very good when compared to other brands. sunpentown.com
