4 Things To Know Before You Request An Air Conditioning Quote

Are you thinking of getting an air conditioning system for your home or work? Before you reach out for an air conditioning quote, there are a few things that you will need to consider. First, taking the time to prepare will make the air conditioning quote process faster and more accurate. When our customers come equipped with these answers, we can often provide a air conditioning quote twice as fast, sometimes without visiting the space prior. And we are confident that we are providing the best air conditioning quote possible for their needs.

Know what type of air conditioning quote you want:

There are various options for cooling and heating a home or commercial premises. For example, a split system will provide climate control in one room. A multi-split system can provide options for multiple rooms. A ducted system can control multiple zones in a home or up to individual rooms.

It’s good to know what you are looking for before you speak to an expert. If you want a range of options, the air conditioning company should be happy to provide cost options or additional recommendations based on their experience.

Do your research on what brand you prefer:

Doing your research on which brand you want to install is essential. Not all brands available in Sydney are the same, and just like any other industry, there are good and not-so-good options. When doing your research, consider:

  • Do they have intelligent options and flexibility that fit your requirements?
  • Does the system look good, and will it work within the aesthetic of your home or commercial premises?
  • What post-purchase support do they offer?
  • Do they have good customer reviews online?
  • What is their extended warranty, and what is their policy?
  • If Australian-owned is important to you, do they fit the bill?

Most good air conditioning installers will specialise in a few brands. Specialising allows them to know the brands they install and gain access to special deals and discounts they can pass on to their customers. Knowing the brand, you want to explore will help you narrow down your search for the best installer for the job.

Know the size of your space:

A good air conditioning company will make sure they are fully briefed on the size of the space before they provide a quote. Why? Because they want to make sure that they are quoting the appropriate size unit (measured in Kilowatts) to create a suitable climate for your room or home adequately. Too big, and it could be a waste on your energy bill and cost you too much, too low, and it won’t do the job to cool and heat the room appropriately.

There are several ways you can provide this:

  1. If you have a floor plan for your home, provide this on your quote request. Most good air conditioning installers will give you a quote off the floor plan.
  2. Measure the size of the rooms you wish to have air conditioning installed.

If you cannot provide either measurement option, the air conditioning installation company will send someone to your home. You can expect at least a two-week lead time for a quote if a home visit is required. And always be wary of companies that provide quotes off a website or over the phone. Without seeing your space, they could very well be making the wrong recommendation for your home to rush a sale.

Consider how you will be using your air conditioning daily:

Air conditioning systems now have such a diverse range of options beyond size. There are many more options, from intelligent zoning options to smart home control devices. Therefore, it’s always good to consider how you will be using your air conditioning system before you speak to an expert. Some questions that a good installer will likely ask is:

  • When will you be using your system? All-day? Only in the evenings? Or only on really hot or cold days?
  • How many people live in your home, and what will they expect? For instance, if you have kids in the house, do they spend a lot of time in their room and require air conditioning?
  • If you are in an office or retail environment, how many people are in there? Do you have a situation where you might need extra KWatt units, such as an IT company that requires additional cooling due to the heat emitted from the hardware?
  • Is your home built for the Sydney winter and summer months? For instance, some homes are great for summer but not made for Sydney’s dry winter months, so heating is more important than cooling.

Having these thoughts ready for your discussion with your air conditioning installer can help ensure you get the best options for your lifestyle and requirements.
