Air conditioning Installation Sydney: Do you need to hire a professional to install an air conditioner in Sydney?

In the vast majority of cases, yes it is necessary to hire an a Sydney-based aircon professionals. The only AC-related job that a person who does not have a license to operate air conditioning equipment can do in Sydney is to connect a single-phase air conditioner to a powerpoint. However, to install any other types of air conditioner you will need to hire an ARC-tick-approved NSW-Fair-Trading-licensed professional.

Only in this way can your home insurance policy cover you against the occurrence of any damage caused during the installation of an air conditioner in Sydney.

In any case, only a certified and licensed aircon professional can install, repair and service the following types of air conditioners:

Split systems
Multi-split systems
Ducted systems

What kind of questions should you ask the professional who is going to install your air conditioner in Sydney?

In order to know if the installation of an air conditioner will be carried out by an expert, ask them the following questions before hiring them:

– Do they have an NSW Fair Trading License and are they approved by the Australian Refrigeration Council?

This is the minimum that any self-proclaimed professional AC in Sydney installer should meet. If they do not meet this requirement, it is better that you do not hire them.

-Do they have insurance?

Having a license usually implies being insured, but it is worth asking.

-What does the installation service include?

In this sense, ask them if you should buy the materials yourself or are already included in the installation? Do they offer a guarantee? In case they do, for how long and what does it cover?

-What other services do they offer?

Normally, those who have a license to install air conditioners offer other types of services such as an electrician, plumber, etc. This information can be useful to know if it can do the type of installation you require.

-What are their fees?

This is particularly important so that you do not have surprises when it comes to paying for the installation of your air conditioner.

What is the best place to install a split system in a house?

In the bedrooms, each split should be located in a place where the air does not flow directly to the beds. Now, for the rest of the areas, it is recommended that each unit be placed in the centre of each of these areas in order to provide an equitable airflow to all of them.

What is a back-to-back installation anyway?

It is a way of installing wall-mounted split systems in which the distance between the indoor and outdoor is the smallest possible since they are installed on the same wall and in the same place, but each one facing opposite sides. It is as if they are leaning on each other, except that they are divided by a wall.

Naturally, since the appliances are close together, fewer pipes, drains and cables are used than in any other type of installation, making this one the most economical there is.

Another way to save costs when installing an AC is the so-called side-to-back installation, in which the indoor unit is installed in an upper corner of the room and the compressor, outside the property, just like in a back-to-back installation, but on the floor and perpendicular to the indoor unit.

Both back-to-back and side-to-back installations allow the water produced by the internal unit to flow towards the external unit so that the latter expels it.

How long does it take to install a split system?

If the installation takes place in an area where no other air conditioner has been placed, setting up the new unit may take 4-8 hours. Otherwise, the installation could take a full day.
