High Quality Air Conditioning

Cooling systems become essential in homes and businesses across Australia. If you’ve ever sweltered through an Australian summer, this isn’t news to you. When the summer starts to heat up, air-cons can help make sure you stay safe and comfortable. But selecting the best air conditioning Sydney has to offer can be a bit of a challenge with so many options to choose from – that’s where we can help.

Portable units can be appealing since all they need is an outlet. But they tend to be less efficient and more of a temporary solution. Both split and ducted systems can be installed with a budget and cooling needs in mind. But both also need a licensed, insured professional to get the job done right.

As you navigate toward better cooling solutions, HunterCON is here to help. We consult and install ACs for residential and commercial buildings in Eastern Suburbs, Inner West, Lower North Shore and South Western Sydney. We can help you choose the right system, the right size for your space, and the right price.

We also stand by our work. Every installation service is backed with a workmanship warranty, so you can have peace of mind. Call us on 02 8283 1105 to chat with us today!

What are the advantages of using air con?

It comes in handy during the balmy summers, as it can be hard to sleep or think straight in all that heat. This is a solution for when a cross breeze or fans simply aren’t enough to keep cool. But they do a lot more than just help homes and businesses stay comfortable.

They can aid your health. A/C filters capture a lot of the dust, pollen and debris that trigger allergies and asthma. They also reduce the humidity indoors. This helps prevent bacteria and mould from developing in the house. Many modern units come with HEPA filters, which can boost the filtration process.

Lower humidity and cooler temps are also great for furnishings, and electronics. Reducing moisture can help protect your belongings from dampness, mould, dust, and bacteria. It can also lead to your home smelling fresh and airy. Tech products like computers and TVs do better in cooler temps (while they tend to produce heat of their own). Keeping them cool will help them last longer.

What type of air con should I get?

They all function to regulate temperatures, but how they do it is quite different across several types. Criteria to keep in mind are the size of the space to be cooled, how many rooms need cooling, and the available budget.

A split system comprises two units that are connected via pipes. The indoor unit delivers the cool air, and the outdoor unit produces the cooled air.

Split systems are suitable for homes since they offer temp control on a room basis. They’re also simple to install, and the units are more affordable compared to other options. You’ll want to do your research on noise levels since some can have compressors that make a bit of a racket outside.

A ducted system has a compressor that stays outside while ductwork is hidden in the walls. This system delivers the cooled air via vents. This offers uniform temperature control throughout a home or business. But since the ductwork is all behind the scenes, the install tends to be more time consuming and costly. And if you want to control temperatures, you’ll need to install zoning.

Multi-split systems have many indoor units connected to a single external compressor. This provides room-by-room climate control that’s ideal for offices.

This system provides the advantage of complete temperature control without affecting the facade. Temperature zoning is made simple with a multi-split system.

How long does it take to install it - Air Conditioning

How long does the installation take?

Most typical installations are completed in one day for split systems or replacements for existing ducted air-cons. If you don’t have existing ductwork or a forced air furnace already, then the project will take a bit longer. Your installer should be able to give you a time estimate along with your price quote.

Some of the factors that can impact the installation time include:

  • Crawlspace or attic installations
  • Difficulty in accessing the furnace
  • Installing a new ductwork
  • Need for dismantling an old furnace
  • Drilling in concrete walls
  • Addressing electrical issues
  • Installation of lineset through finished living spaces

How much does an air conditioning system cost?

The cost will depend on the type of unit and the complexity of the entire installation process. Smaller systems usually cost around $600 to $750, whereas larger systems will cost around $2,400 to $5,400.

Installers usually charge by the hour, anywhere from $60 to $110 per hour for a domestic project and $80 to $140 per hour for commercial units.

You will see that many factors will influence the final quote you’ll receive such as:

  • Type and size of the air con unit
  • Amount of interconnecting cable and refrigeration piping
  • Amount of cable ducting
  • Need for meter board upgrade
  • Access for installers

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Conditioning Sydney

Can I install AC myself?

Unless you go with a portable unit, you’ll need to choose a professional installer. Home and business owners are not permitted to attempt these installations themselves. There are regulations in place throughout Australia to prohibit this. Air con installation is conducted with specialized tools and experience to do the job right and keep the unit’s warranty.

When is the right time to buy an air con unit?

Just like everything else in Australia, peak seasons will usually mean peak prices. If you are planning to buy an air conditioner during or around the summer months, chances are you’ll end up paying a higher price. The installation could also cost more because the installers are likely to be busier during summers. It’s usually a good idea to plan ahead and get your air con installed during the off-peak season.

How noisy can an AC be?

One thing you should consider when buying an air con is the noise level. It can be very annoying to have a constant white noise in the background when you’re trying to focus on a task, relax, or go to sleep. You should look for a unit that has a noise level of under 50 dB. For reference, here are the noise levels for some other common sounds:

  • Whisper, light snoring – 20 dB
  • Moderate snoring – 40 dB
  • Loud radio – 80 dB
  • Subway train – 100 dB
  • Ambulance siren – 120 dB

How can I make sure my air con is energy efficient?

Heating and cooling systems account for about 40% of Australian household electricity use. When buying a unit, check the energy star rating. Usually, the higher the star rating, the better the performance of the unit. This means it will cool more while using less energy to keep you comfortable. You also need to be sure your air con unit is properly sized for your space. Otherwise, you could be increasing your electricity consumption or have an AC that doesn’t work properly.

Is getting an air conditioner worth it?

The answer to this question is a personal decision.

If you’ve struggled through hotter months, or ducked to the local Westfields just to enjoy a little A/C, then the answer is likely “yes”.

Going back a few years, many Australian homes were constructed without it. In Sydney in particular, where the climate isn’t just warm but humid, fans alone can’t always provide the levels of comfort you need – which has fuelled an explosion in A/C installation.

Keep in mind, an air con system does more than just cool things off. Here are a few other benefits that A/C can add to your home.

Asthma attack prevention

Running an aircon not only reduces humidity in your home, but it can also lower the amount of mold, mildew, and other airborne allergens such as pollen – all of which can cause asthma attacks.

A more secure home

Since you’ll be keeping your doors and windows closed when the aircon is turned on, it becomes harder for someone to break in. We’re not saying that you shouldn’t get security services for your home, but this is just another reason to love A/C.

Improved air quality

Many modern units come with advanced filters that protect against pollutants, irritants and even small pests and parasites that can frustrate you and your pets.

Better sleep

Did you know people actually sleep better in colder conditions? We don’t need to tell you how important a good night’s sleep is to your general well-being, with a modern A/C unit helping you wake up feeling fresher and ready to take on the challenges of the day.

Keep your electronics cool

It’s not just your body that will thank you when the temperature drops, because the electronic gadgets and appliances in your house will work better in an air conditioned house, too. Electronics like computers, laptops, and TVs are prone to overheating, and that can damage their performance and efficiency.
