Are you looking to buy, service or repair an aircon in Sydney? Keep reading.
There are so many things to consider when buying an air conditioner in Sydney! Do you want an air conditioner for a specific area of your home or office or one that cools the whole place? How big should that AC be? Do you prefer a ducted or split system? Once the aircon is installed, how much will servicing and repairing it eventually cost? How about AC’s impact on your electricity bill?
All these questions are valid since you want to make the best decision when it comes to investing your money. Below, we will tell you everything you need to know about Air Conditioning in Sydney.
This decision will depend on your budget and personal preferences for some type of air conditioning. Check them out below:
These are the most common ACs in Australia. It’s recommended to use them in rooms and open areas with an average size of approximately 60 square meters. They have two main parts connected by pipes that carry the refrigerant gas: an internal one, located in the area to be cooled, and an external one that dissipates heat. Split-system prices range between $600 – $5,500.
They are similar to the previous ones in terms of their operation and prices (between $600 – $5,500) but differ from the former in that two or more indoor units can be connected to the outdoor unit. Multi-Split-Systems are very suitable for premises that have two or three relatively close located rooms.
This type of air conditioner was designed to cool or heat the entire house. They have a silent central unit that is usually placed on the ceiling and is connected to each area of the premises through air vents and sensors. You can find ducted systems with prices that start at $5,000, but some cost more than $10,000.
A wall or window system consists of a single unit that is installed in an external window. They do not have the scope or aesthetics of multi-split and ducted systems, but their price is much lower than that of this type of systems (between $400 – $1,100).
Another advantage that some wall/windows systems have is that they can be connected to a powerpoint, which makes installation very easy. However, some of these units require additional cables to be installed.
Although they are not as efficient as other AC systems, they are an excellent solution in case you want to cool an area without making modifications to its structure, as is often the case with rented properties. Most of these systems have ducts that can be placed in any window to expel the heat produced by the unit. Prices range from $300 – $1,300.
Heating and AC systems account for about 40% of Australian household electricity consumption. By using these devices correctly, you can save energy and money. Follow these simple tips:
Usually, the higher the star rating, the better the performance of the AC unit, that is, it will cool more and use less energy for it.

You need to know what is the most appropriate air conditioner size for your area. Otherwise, you could be needlessly increasing your electricity consumption or have an air conditioner that does not cool as much as it should.
This includes setting your thermostat to a reasonable level so that your aircon won’t use more energy than necessary nor will it overwork. Moreover, you may use your AC’s Economy or Eco mode, in case it has one.

The two best times to buy an aircon in Sydney are:
1. Several months before the start of summer
Indeed, if your main interest in this regard is to have your aircon installed as quickly as possible, you better buy your unit well before the summer, since, naturally, during these warm months, there is a lot of demand for this equipment and you may have to wait longer than usual for aircon installers to knock your door.
2. After the summer ends
Now if you want to get good prices, the perfect time to buy an aircon is when the summer ends, as AC vendors will want to sell their old equipment at a discounted price in order to fill their shelves with new merchandise.
The installation of a single-phase aircon unit that only requires its connection to a powerpoint can be done by anyone. Other than that, air conditioning unit installation, maintenance and repair work in Sydney must be done by an NSW-Fair-Trading-licensed and ARC-tick-approved professional. This last requirement is fulfilled by having a full Refrigeration & Air Conditioning license or some type of specific license to install air conditioners.
It is important to note that if a person who does not meet the legal requirements indicated above is hired to undertake air conditioning work and causes any damage, it will not be covered by your insurance policy. Worse, you may have to compensate that person if they suffer any physical damage during the installation, maintenance or repair of your air conditioner.
Depending on the model of your air conditioner and the type of fault it has, a professional can charge you between $80 and $150 per hour to repair it.
This is variable, but on average AC servicing costs $100 in Sydney.
