We Can Supply & Install
Choosing which air conditioner suits your needs best is the first step! As there are several options, each with their own price, installation needs and efficiency, it’s important we establish which works best for your home or office first. If you’re updating an existing system to something more modern, you’ll almost certainly save money on your utility bill simply by bringing your cooling system up to date.
Choosing The Right Air Conditioner
The right system for you depends on your home or office, your budget, your flexibility and the overall efficiency you hope to achieve. To help clear the air, let’s talk about both the pros and cons for each of the major A/C unit types.
If your home or office is older, retrofitting for central air conditioning may not be practical. That’s because we need to snake ducts through existing walls, which requires cutting and patching holes. In some cases installing central AC is not possible. That being said, should your home or office be of a more modern design, or is still in the process of being built, then central air may be right for you.
Controlled via a centre console, cooling is delivered via ducts and is the most visually appealing form of air conditioning in that it can’t really be seen! Central air also has great efficiency ratings.
Ductless Mini Split Systems
A ductless unit can be a smart choice if you’d really like central air but can’t get a ducted system to work in your home. This type of A/C system mounts to the wall and requires only a small hole to be cut, making it easier to install. The big bonus is the lack of ductwork: Air blows directly into the room where the ductless system is placed.
Window Air Conditioners
Because window units don’t require any permanent installation modifications, they’re also a good choice for renters. When you don’t have the ability to make alterations to your home, a window unit makes sense as a temporary solution, and you can take it with you when you leave. They are easy to install, though heavier units may require additional support to stay put in the window. They are great for rooms in older homes where you can close a door to keep cool air contained, and they’re perfect for allowing each family member to control their own temperature in a bedroom for sleeping.
Air Conditioner Installation Prices
With soaring electricity costs, keeping a lid on your A/C operating expenses is an important consideration. Air Conditioning Sunshine Coast will factor in the cost of purchasing a unit of the correct size and work out how much the installation will cost on your behalf upfront.
A portable unit may cost in the region of $500, while a new split system unit can start at $900. The price is dependent on the unit’s kilowatt capacity. If the unit has a higher kW output, it will cost more than a unit with a lower output. If you inhabit a smaller space – such as a studio apartment or home office – a portable unit is more affordable than a split system.
For an estimation of prices (excluding installation) for a variety of systems, expect to pay in the region:
- $749 for an Olimpia C4.1kW portable air con (cooling only)
- $899 for a Fujitsu C2.5kW H3.2kW reverse cycle split system
- $1089 for a Fujitsu C3.5kW H3.7kW reverse cycle split system
- $2399 for a Mitsubishi C8.0kW H9.0kW reverse cycle split system
*please be aware the above prices are subject to change on behest of the manufacturer.
Fitting Split Systems
Once we’ve settled on your air conditioner, the installation process can begin. The rate is dependent on a few factors, including where you live, the air conditioner you’ve chosen, how many units you’re installing and the ease of access on your property.
For a wall hung split type air conditioning system expect to be charged:
- $600 to install a 2.5kw – 3.5kw inverter system
- $650 to install a 5kw – 6kw inverter system
- $700 to install a 7kw – 8kw inverter system
- $750 to install a 9kw- 9.9kw inverter system
If you are installing a reverse ducted air conditioning system, some typical prices quoted online (unit + installation) are:
- $5400 for an 8.0kw ducted reverse cycle air conditioning unit (Samsung) installed to 6 points
*no two installations are the same and we’re specialists in finding the best price for you and your home or office.
Installing Split AC Systems
Split system air conditioners are the trailblazers in air conditioning units for a number of reasons.
Easy to install, simple to maintain and cheaper than ducted systems, the units are a popular choice for both landlords and property owners who are seeking simple and easy to use heating and cooling options for their properties that provide perfectly climate controlled environments.

Installing Ducted Air Con
Installing a ducted air conditioning system is a full day, a sometimes-longer process involving many moving parts. Initially, an expert will determine where the outdoor unit will be housed as well as where the controller will be installed. Plastic sheeting will cover furniture and flooring, and then the installation can begin.
The indoor unit needs to be separated into 3 parts to enable it to fit into the ceiling cavity.
The structure of the roof is used to suspend the indoor unit to eliminate vibrations via the ceiling. Once in place, the safety tray to catch discharge fluids is mounted underneath the suspended indoor unit. The safety tray drain and the condensate drain are then run out to the roof gutter.
The outdoor unit is placed in position and the refrigeration pipes and the electrical interconnect are run from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit. Holes then need to be cut for the supply air diffusers and then these diffusers are fitted.
The air ducts are laid and connected to the branches and these connect back to the air mixing plenum on the indoor unit. The return air ducts are connected from the indoor unit to the return air box (above the return air grille). This completes the air system installation.
The control cables are run to the zone motors and the cables are run from the wall controllers to the indoor unit. The ducted air conditioning system is turned on and all functionality must be checked thoroughly.
