Experts, please help.

I wanted to buy Air-con System 3 and visited couple of shops and confused.

I want to install in 3 rooms. Most likely I turn on only two air-cons as third room is a guest room.

Typical usage is as follows.

Master room (3.3 x 4.2 meter), On between 11.30 pm to 6 am
Bedroom 2(3.3 x 4.2 meter), On between 8 pm to 5.30 am
Bedroom 3(4.0 x 4.2 meter). Seldom on. May be monthly once.

1) What is full load?
2) What is part load?
3) I want to buy ME Starmex but Sales man suggested MHI. He says MHI is new and low power consumption compare to ME which is 8 year old technology. I looked at energy star and but confused

Full Load:2.18
Part Load:0.72
Cooling capacity 7.31 Kw

Full Load:1.48
Part Load:0.58
Cooling Capacity:6.19 Kw

Since the cooling capacity for Both Aircon is different, How to determine? If Cooling Capacity of MHI is increased to 7.31 kw then what will be the Full Load and Part Load of MHI Air-Con? Can some one help me to understand?

4) MHI - Is Auto cleaning but ME is manual cleaning which we can open and clean. How critical is this feature? What you recommend?

5) Anyone have experience with Midea? Is it reliable? How about cooling ?

Thank you in advance for your help.
