Frequently Asked Questions about Air Conditioner Installation

Air conditioners must be installed by a licensed air conditioner technician. Depending on your air conditioner, this might be a plumber or electrician with a Refrigeration and Air Conditioning license.

The best air conditioner for your home will depend on a number of factors:

  • Size of area to be cooled or heated
  • How well insulated your home is
  • Number of windows and how well insulated they are with curtains
  • How many rooms you want to cool or heat
  • Energy efficiency
  • Budget

A licensed air conditioner technician can help you pick the best air conditioning system for your home.

Air conditioner installation is best left to a licensed and experienced HVAC contractor. They have the skill and expertise to complete the job safely and efficiently, and will not run the risk of voiding the warranty on the system before you’ve even had the chance to turn it on.

A split system air conditioner involves two major components – a condenser outside of the home, and a head unit installed indoors. They can be installed in a home one part at a time, and are often less expensive than a ducted system at the point of purchase. A split system is generally better suited to a smaller property as it only really cools the room in which it is installed.

A ducted air conditioner has the ability to cool multiple rooms at once, through a series of ducts and air vents installed in nominated zones in the home. They are more expensive to purchase than a split system, but their efficiency and ability to cool a greater area make them a highly favoured option for larger homes. Ducted air conditioner units are typically installed in the roof space or on the outside of the home.
