What are split system air conditioners?
You’ve probably heard your colleague, friend or local electrician mention this model of air conditioning system to you. It’s growing in popularity in the Gold Coast, and across Australia because they’re easy to install and not so harsh on your pockets. They’re called split systems because the unit is made up of two separate parts. In basic English, one part is outside to harvest cold, filtered air and another part is inside to distribute that air. Split systems have an internal head unit as well as an external compressor and condenser. The price of installation is relatively low compared to other units, provided that you require it to function well in a limited area of space or one particular room.
How much does it cost to install air conditioning?
The average hourly rate for air conditioning installation in Australia is about $80. This price will differ based on the area you’re in and the specifics of the job you call us out for.
