The Lowdown on Air Conditioning Installation Melbourne – How to Survive the Summer Heat
Summer may be over for another year, but when it comes to air conditioning installation, Melbourne homeowners should not wait until next summer to book it in. In fact, if you melted a little this summer and you’ve been thinking about how to survive the heat next summer, the best time to call us is during the cooler months when we’re not flat out like a lizard drinking, installing air conditioning.
When Is the Best Time to Install a Split System Air Conditioner?
If you’re wondering when the best time is to buy and install an air conditioner or split system air conditioner, it depends on your budget. If you want to save a little extra, air conditioner prices in Australia are often cheaper in the cooler months, when sales are on, well after the rush of air conditioning installation has passed.
The big companies often have sales on split system air conditioners, but that doesn’t mean you should rush out and buy one just yet. You need to do your research into which is the best air conditioner for you. And that’s where we can help.
We all know that life without air conditioning in Melbourne, for at least six months of the year, is hard. Given that we regularly achieve insane temperatures into the 40s during a Melbourne summer, and given that global warming is predicted to increase temperatures year on year, if you wait until it’s too hot to think about air conditioning installation, it may be too late to book someone in or your preferred machine may be sold out.
Air conditioning installation in Melbourne is absolutely imperative to survive the heat. It is literally a matter of life or death for children and the elderly, and a matter of comfort vs discomfort, sleep vs crankiness for everyone else.
So don’t suffer unnecessarily, just give us a call at ElecSmith Electrical Contracting Services in Langwarrin and we can come and talk to you about the best air conditioners for your property.
Which Air Conditioner Is Right for You?
There are many different types, sizes and brands of air conditioner and split system air conditioner available on the market, so it can all get a little overwhelming when deciding which air conditioner to buy.
At ElecSmith, we can help you cut through all the confusion by asking you a few questions and providing the right advice based on your answers and our experience as an A grade Melbourne Electrician.
Some questions to think about include:
– Do you need a split system air conditioner for heating and cooling in one unit or do you already have sufficient heating in the property?
– Do you want ducted evaporative cooling throughout your home and if so, are you aware of the pros and cons?
– Do you want individual air conditioners in each bedroom as well as other rooms in the house?
– What is the best position for optimising airflow throughout your property?
– What size air conditioners do you need installed to cover and cool each zone?
– Are you going to need to install an air conditioner on an internal or external wall?
We can help you answer these questions and any others you may have and can offer you a free quote at the same time, so give us a call or drop us an email and we can start the ball rolling.
What Is the Best Air Conditioner to Buy and Which Brands Should You Avoid?
You may find cheap air conditioners online or lots of brands to choose from, but which is the best air conditioner to buy? Should you choose the cheapest or is the most expensive going to be the best? Which air conditioners get the best ratings and last the longest?
Cheap air conditioners with brands you’ve never heard of may not always be the best solution for you in the longer term. We understand that you may have a budget, but from our experience, we recommend only a small handful of brands for reliability and they are not always necessarily the cheapest, though they can save you in the long run.
