We can install your new split system
*For guaranteed installation before Christmas, job must be paid in full and product on site by date listed. For all bookings made after this date, lead times can increase up to two weeks post-Christmas.
When selecting an air conditioner for your home, the size and type of room it is going to be installed in should be considered. To best gauge the size of the unit you require, refer to the supplier brochures available in the aisle or at the Special Orders desk.
Standard installation includes back-to-back installs with the price determined by the size of the unit and whether the installation is taking place on a single or double storey home. Installation pricing is representative of a standard installation for a split system unit. Installations that do not meet these conditions will be classified as a non-standard installation and additional charges may be applicable.
Standard back-to-back installation is a split system with two main components – a wall mounted indoor unit with an outdoor unit positioned directly below on a single storey dwelling.
A double storey installation is a split system with two main components – a wall mounted indoor unit that is mounted on the second storey of a dwelling and an outdoor unit mounted outside at ground level directly below the indoor unit. If mounting outside unit onto a wall, brackets are an additional cost.
