Top Air Conditioning Installation related questions

What’s involved in a standard air conditioner service?

During an air conditioner service, your electrician will check the thermostat and gas levels, along with filters, coils, coil fins and condensate drains. They’ll make sure they’re all free from dust and debris so air can flow properly.

How often should I service my air conditioner?

This can depend on how frequently you use your air con unit and how dusty or polluted the outside environment is. If you do a DIY clean of your filters every few weeks and keeping the outdoor unit clear of debris and cobwebs, you may only need a professional air conditioner service once a year.

Do ducted air conditioners need servicing?

Yes, just like all other air conditioners, ducted air con systems can collect dust and dirt, so need regular cleaning. Brushing and vacuuming around the vents will help, but it’s a good idea to get the ducts professionally serviced yearly.

Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?

When trying to decide if you should repair or replace your air conditioner, weigh up factors like: the age of the air conditioner, its energy efficiency, and the cost of a new unit verses the cost to repair.

Do you need a licence to install or repair air conditioners?

Each Australian state regulates the licences of air conditioning professionals. But installers and technicians across Australia must hold one of two licences issued by the Australian Refrigeration Council: either a Full Refrigeration & Air Conditioning licence, or a Restricted licence (allowing for work on split system air conditioners only).

How much does it cost to service an air conditioner?

The average cost of an air conditioner service on Airtasker is $122-$450, but price can be affected by the complexity of the task. Read our air conditioner price guide to learn more about the cost of different air conditioning services.

Apart from the AC installations, what other air conditioning services can I book through Airtasker?

Our platform connects you with qualified specialists who can assist you with any AC-related service. They can perform simple maintenance work like cleaning the vents, coils, and air filters.

What do air conditioning installation services include?

Air conditioning installation services cover the entire process of fitting your new air cooling system to your home, office, or commercial space. Whatever type of AC unit you have, expert installers can help you out. If needed, you can also find qualified electricians on our platform who can assist you with any wiring issue or connect your unit to a power source.

If it's your first time booking an aircon installation with us, here's what you can expect:. 

Window type AC installation

Window type air conditioners are probably one of the most common AC units you'll find in the market. If you have a window opening located near an outlet, it makes the ideal spot for this type of appliance. But in case you prefer to mount your AC through the wall, you can also reach out to an expert handyman who can drill and cut a hole on your wall to fit your aircon unit accordingly. Assuming that you already have the location ready, your installer can proceed with:

  • Installing the case or panels on both sides of the air conditioner
  • Lifting the AC and balancing them in place
  • Screwing the case or panels to the window sash if needed
  • Securing your appliance with L brackets
  • Sealing the gap between the wall or window frame and the AC unit

 If you need to install a functional curtain or blind to block the sunlight from your window, or solely cover your AC unit when not in use, we can also connect you with nearby curtain and blind fitters who can lend a hand.

Split system AC installation

Unlike window type units, split system air conditioners are more discreet and aesthetically unobtrusive. However, they fall on a lower cost range as compared to central AC units. While they look easy to install, they still involve some piping and cabling work that only experts can efficiently do. Split system installation includes the following:

  • Screwing the mounting plate onto the interior wall
  • Drilling holes to feed the pipe
  • Connecting pipes from the indoor to the outdoor unit
  • Mounting the indoor unit
  • Installing an outdoor condenser unit in a secured location
  • Levelling the ground where the outdoor unit will sit
  • Placing the outdoor unit
  • Connecting electrical wires from the indoor to the outdoor unit

Ducted air conditioning installation

When it comes to bigger houses or spaces, a ducted AC is usually the way to go. It comes with a central unit and a series of ducts that help distribute cold air across the entire room. Similar to a split type aircon, it also has an outdoor unit, only larger. Installing ducted air conditioning can be quite tricky, so it's best to leave the job to an expert installer. It typically involves:

  • Fitting the outdoor unit
  • Creating a hole in the ceiling for the vent and main ductwork
  • Connecting pipes and cables from indoor to outdoor unit
  • Cutting wall or ceiling holes in other rooms to accommodate the air vents
  • Mounting of the central control unit and thermostats
