Commercial Air Conditioning Sydney
A functional, efficient cooling system is absolutely essential to maintain business continuity and avoid losing sales and customers. If the heat is starting to rise inside and out, the only thing going down will be team productivity and revenue figures.
Sydney commercial air conditioning requires system design with top-notch units and fabrication. The best installs are those that factor in the nuances of a space and how to simplify commercial maintenance and access over time. Even for hotels or apartment complexes with similar floor plans, the design, equipment, and controls implemented are often unique.

What are some common issues with air conditioning?
Given their much bigger size than their residential counterparts, commercial air con systems have more complexity and more moving parts. Proper routine maintenance is important to keep things running as expected and to avoid larger or most costly repairs. One of the top issues is actually a lack of commercial maintenance due to inadequate resources or understanding.
Hand in hand with maintenance comes cleanliness. If the filters and units are not kept clean, they will stop running efficiently. They can also cause health hazards over time as dust, mold, fungus, and bacteria build up and get blown through the system. Clogged filters and drains can cause the system to strain to produce cool air, burning out parts and driving up electrical costs over time.
What are the best types of commercial air conditioners?
Recommendations for this come down to the size of the space. It is important that your commercial air conditioner is sized properly for the area it is trying to cool, otherwise the system can become damaged over time (not to mention that it simply won’t cool the space properly).
- VRV/VRF: Best for larger commercial spaces since they can handle a lot of area without overtaxing the system
- Multi-Split: Offers versatility for cooling separated areas but are better for medium-sized spaces since they require extra ducting.
- Single-Split: Perfect for smaller commercial areas like storefronts or offices since they take up less space and tend to cost less.
Who can install commercial air conditioning in Sydney?
You should go with a licensed and insured professional for any air conditioning job, no matter the size. When it comes to commercial projects, the Australia Refrigeration Council requires a full Refrigeration and Air Conditioning license. Electricians and plumbers may also be needed to help integrate the system with other utilities, such as master control panel integration with facility breakers.
As you evaluate services, you should also ask the following questions beyond licensure:
- Are your teams fully insured to work on commercial projects?
- Can you share references for similar work in the area?
- Do you work directly with the municipality regarding permits?
- What warranties do you offer on parts and labour?
- Do you offer contracts for ongoing system maintenance?
- Do you provide emergency services, and if so, at what cost?
What to watch out for when purchasing air conditioning?
For the most part, commercial air con is straightforward, and a professional commercial air conditioning installer should be able to advise you on the best system for your space. That said, there are a few considerations that you should watch or (or ask about) when you are buying a system.
- Size: The system should be right-sized for your space. Too big and you’ll waste energy. Too small and the unit will struggle to cool things properly.
- Zone: Energy labels can indicate the best option for your climate zone. Sydney is in the Average zone according to the Zoned Energy Rating Label.
- Air Quality: Depending on your line of work, filters and humidity controls can come in handy to keep employees and customers comfortable.
- Efficiency: Look for units that meet the Australian Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) to save on electricity.

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Air Conditioning in Sydney
Is maintenance required for commercial air con?
In most cases, yes, but not for the first reasons that might come to mind. Required maintenance comes down to the laws set Essential Fire Safety Measures. Clogged ventilation or parts in disrepair can be a hazard to tenants and need to be prevented. This service is typically conducted on a quarterly basis unless there are special regulations for your industry. The upside is that regular commercial maintenance will also help with system efficiency and reduced utility costs over time.
Are there other options aside from VRV/VRF for commercial AC?
Smaller commercial spaces may be able to make use of either single split or multi-split ductless systems. These can give you better temperature control per room but include many more exposed vents and filters that require upkeep.
Does it matter if our commercial air con is too big for our space?
Actually, yes. You might think that a bigger system is a good thing when it comes to cooling a space. But commercial air conditioners should be right sized for the space they support. An oversized system will create too much moisture and leave things feeling a bit more humid. Likewise, if your system is too small, it will struggle to cool the space, creating energy inefficiencies and leaving everything uncomfortably warm.
How can I save on energy while still keeping customers and employees comfortable?
Having a commercial air conditioning system that is sized properly for your space is a good start, as noted above. Routine commercial maintenance is also important since it will keep the units running as efficiently as possible.
You might be tempted to run your system as little as possible in warmer weather. But if you start cooling the space before it heats up throughout the day, you’ll actually need to run the system less overall. It will simply struggle to catch up and cool things off if you wait to turn it on when the midday sun hits.
