Air Conditioning Specialist

Heating and cooling your home is essential part of maintaining a comfortable environment. With the extremes experienced by Australia in summer and winter, maintaining a comfortable environment can be a challenge. When it comes to heating and cooling, air conditioning specialists can help make sense of the complex world of air conditioning.
Air conditioning units come in different shapes and sizes with the two types being evaporative and refrigerant. Evaporative air conditioners use the evaporation of water to cool air that is pumped into your home. Refrigerant systems use a cooling process similar to a fridge to cool air before pumping it into your home. Refrigerant systems can either be installed as split systems, window/wall/floor mounted and ducted systems. The strength of the air conditioning system is determined by its power. An air conditioning unit for a small room only requires a small amount of power, whilst larger rooms or house systems require larger units. Unit power can range from 0.8 kW to 18kW.

What do Air Conditioning Specialists do?

Air conditioning specialists provide a range of services that can help you choosing, installing and operating your air conditioning system. Air conditioning specialists can:
- Selection: Choosing the right type of air conditioning system can be a complex process where room sizes, power needs, ducting and other details need to be considered.
- Advise on power requirements and recommend upgrades to suit the desired air conditioning unit.
- Install air conditioning units and ducting.
- Organise connection to mains power by a licensed electrician.
- If using evaporative air conditioning, organise for a licensed plumber to connect the system to the house water supply.
- Conduct periodic maintenance to keep your system operating at peak efficiency and ensuring the system is not contaminated and a danger to your family.
- Repair or replace damaged air conditioning units.
- Adjust thermostats to suit local conditions.
- Calibrate air conditioning systems to ensure maximum performance.

Choosing an Air Conditioning Specialist

When choosing an air conditioning specialist, there are a few basic checks that you need to do when to ensure a quality job with little stress.
1. Is the air conditioning specialist qualified & licensed? To connect your air conditioning unit to mains power, a licensed electrician is required. Also, depending upon the type of air conditioning unit you have installed, a licensed plumber may also be required. Your air conditioning specialist should be qualified and experienced in the installation of that type of air conditioning unit and certified to handle refrigerants by the Australian Refrigerant Council (AFC).
2. Are they insured? Check to insure that they have the relevant insurance coverage for themselves and any work they do. This includes Workers Compensation and Liability Insurance.
3. Correct Paperwork. Written quotes and guarantees, certificates of installation are a few of the necessary documents that the air conditioning specialist can provide. These should be provided at the completion of the job and before the air conditioning specialist leaves the jobsite. These documents ensure that the work has been done by a qualified air conditioning specialist and may be required for insurance, building inspections or on resale of your home.
4. Warranty. Ensure that you receive a copy of the air conditioning specialist’s written warranty. This document will tell you exactly what is under warranty and what is not. Also ask what actions are required by you to maintain the warranty. This may include regular inspections and maintenance.
As with any other trade, ensure you understand what the air conditioning specialist will be doing before they commence the job, how long it will take and the costs. Finally, ensure you get multiple quotes for your job and ensure the quotes are based on the same information for ease of comparison.
