Split system air-conditioners are ideal where you only need a few areas cooled/heated. These are great for the budget and are a quick way to create comfort for the essential areas of your home.

Because we are licensed Electricians as well, we offer a great, one-stop service, from supplying a split system air conditioning unit, installing the indoor and outdoor units and also wiring the required circuit back to the switchboard.

There are many different types of split system air conditioning installations that may be required depending on the location. The easiest and cheapest option is the back-to-back air con installation. With this method, the outdoor unit is directly behind the indoor unit location. The outdoor unit can be mounted on a slab or on wall brackets, depending on requirements.

Some situations will require more complex options for a split system air conditioning installation. This involves extended pipe runs or if the outdoor is located high on the wall of a multi-storey building. The outdoor unit can also be installed on a roof or the indoor unit may require a condensate pump. Any advanced installations or special situations require a free of cost site visit to make sure the pricing is correct.

Getting the right sized air conditioner is more important than you might think.

Having a system that is too small can shorten the life of the air conditioner, since it has to work harder to heat or cool the room. This also means that it can take much longer to reach the temperature you want, or never get there at all. Your power consumption will also rise, meaning any savings you made on the initial cost of purchasing the system will eventually be outweighed by the increase to your electricity bill.

If you are ever unsure about what sized air conditioner you need, contact our friendly staff to arrange on onsite quote.
