Greetings. I am in need of some air conditioners for my cabanas. High wall split units are what I need. Any suggestions for the best, most reliable units for use in Belize and for the hotel industry. Someone mentioned to me today a brand called TGM. Never heard of it. Help! Our guests arrive in 2 weeks

Recently saw an ad for a unit in the states by Mitsubishi that is similar to what i saw last year in the cafeteria/restaurant at Goldson in BC. Sounds like what you may be searching for. Seem to recall a similar looking system in the front window of the big hardware store in San Pedro too! Good hunting..........Richard :p

I am in a similar situation and asked for advice on the message board and got none. You probably want to find out what is being used locally in your area. Best to check around for an electrician who can do the install and service the product. Then go with what they suggest. I believe the TGM mini splits are from Brazil. I had trouble finding them on the internet as well, but they do use them in San Pedro.

Without a doubt David in belmopan is the best - he gives a 4 year warranty which is unheard of in Belize,and deals only with Carrier.He now has most of the contracts with the gov't.,and his service is second to none. Tel. no 822-0084 cel 614-3080

Without a doubt David,and his team who are based in Belmopan are the best - he gives a 4 year warranty which is unheard of in Belize,and deals only with Carrier.He now has most of the contracts with the gov't.,and his service is second to none. Tel. no 822-1313 cel 614-3080 companys name is International Refridgeration p.s. yes I did buy my a/cs from him and have had no problems since the day he walked through my door -the previous 3 years were nightmares where the only answer was to buy new ones.

Pedro - Does he have someone in San Pedro to service them or does he come from Belmopan? Can I get some specifics from you re size and price etc.? I tried Bowman Electric in Belize City but got no reply. I have the name of another local guy (Lino Ancona) but I think he just does the install.

My email is down David is more expensive than Wally but he provides the best - Int refridg. come to the island when you call or when the machine breaks down or for when your service is due. call him. I bought a wall unit from Wally it lasted five months (no warranty)(1800 btu-1800bzd) Ancona serviced it -that really should be a clue. David reckons my wall unit which is 30 btu (cost 2400bzd fitted -I think)will last at least 15 years,and they are cheaper to run which has proved out on my electricity bills. It is now your decision-
