How to choose the right brand
Different brands do air con differently, but the top brands will likely cover most of the above factors fairly equally. A professional installer will help narrow the options down based on efficiency, size, and budget requirements.
From there, it’s up to you, and it comes down to features. Here are just a few that stand out to most buyers:
- Number of supported zones
- Reverse cycle capabilities
- Physical size vs. available space
- Thermostats and remotes
- Variable speed compressors
- Smart home connectivity
- Air quality monitoring addons
At HunterCON, we recommend only the best aircon brands for our clients. These are tops when it comes to reliability, warranty, and customer satisfaction

Ready for wide-range cooling that’s no sweat? Samsung’s ducted air cons operate in -15°C to 50°C outside temperatures for cooling. Versatile installation options give more flexibility for placement and access for maintenance. The included touch screen controller manages everything from scheduling to filter alerts and temperature sensors.
How long is the A/C installation process?
It usually takes one full day to install a ducted air conditioning. However, the actual time will depend on the complete job. It’s worth noting that installing all new ductwork, such as in a new home build, will add more time to the project for sheet metal fabrication and installation.
Other general factors when installing an air con system include:
- Removing existing air con systems and wiring
- Installing new or repairing existing ductwork
- Installing the new condenser
- Calibrating and programming thermostats
- Accounting for multi-zone temperature regulation
How much do ducted air conditioning systems cost?
The cost depends entirely on the size of your building. The larger your house, the larger the AC system will need to be. Consequently, the entire installation process will also be longer.
The actual cost of installation will depend on your house’s layout, as well as the material it is made of and the number of people living in it. Either way, on average, you will have to pay approximately $5,000 to install it on a small property, which can go up to around $10,000 for a one-story, three-bedroom home.
