4 factors that impact the cost of air conditioning installation

  • Air conditioning installation cost

What’s the most important thing when it comes to planning air conditioning installation in Brisbane?

Obviously, it’s pretty important that your system is capable of meeting your needs and keeping you comfortable – that’s what makes the system design process so important.

For many homeowners however, the first thing they focus on is the cost.

Naturally, there’s the cost of the system itself. In addition to that however, there are also a range of other factors that can influence and even increase the cost of your air conditioning installation plans.

It’s natural to worry about expenses. Rest assured, if you can avoid these hurdles however, you won’t need to worry as much about paying an unreasonable amount for air conditioning installation.

Well, that’s enough preamble – on with the show.


What can drive up the cost of air conditioning installation in Brisbane?

1) The air conditioning brand you choose

Certain brands are more expensive than other ones – simple as that! If you’re dead-set on one particular air conditioning brand, know that it may have an influence on your invoice.

Of course, that isn’t to say that you should go for the cheapest option your air conditioning installer offers!

In many cases, the extra cost is totally justified by what these brands bring to the table.

A lot of cheaper, no-name brands are just that – cheap. Simply, they aren’t up to snuff.

Many of them don’t have any maintenance or service presence in Australia – when something inevitably goes wrong, you’ll have a hard time claiming your warranty (if you have one) or finding replacement parts.

While you might save some money upfront, in the grand scheme of things, it just isn’t worth it.

For example, we here at Tri-Tech work with both Daikin and Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning.

These reputable brands really deliver, with:

  • Unbeatable energy efficiency
  • Reliable systems
  • Huge range of options
  • Australia-based warranty and maintenance system

Trust us, it’s worth the extra spend!

2) The size, orientation, and layout of your house

A larger house requires more cooling. And that means either a more powerful ducted system with more ducts, or multiple split system air conditioning systems.

Either way, the end result is the same: you’ll likely have to pay more for your cooling.

Thankfully, this may not have to be the case.

While conventional wisdom may be that a larger house means more expensive cooling, recent developments in air conditioning technology mean that this isn’t necessarily the case.

Now, many of the once-exclusive features unique to these types of large, powerful systems like VRV/VRF are now commonplace and affordable.

3) Unexpected or costly installation challenges

When performing air conditioning installation – in particular, ducted air conditioning installation – we might run into problems that can make the installation more challenging and increase the amount of time taken to complete the job.

And that in turn means a higher installation cost.

One way this drives up cost is by increasing the amount of time needed to complete the job, as your air conditioning team fits your air conditioning system into your home.

For example, say the big day comes and your AC team discovers that that your ceiling can’t support air conditioning ducts, or that the section of wall you’ve selected for your wall-mounted split system doesn’t have any timber beams to mount your A/C to.

Luckily, this isn’t something you need to worry about with Tri-Tech.

Thanks to our extensive system design process – including in-depth research and planning – we’re able to identify all of these installation challenges and plan accordingly.

As a result, we’re able to work around these issues without significantly increasing the cost of your installation.

4) Extras to enhance your home comfort

In addition to powerful air conditioning solutions, our team can also offer a range of air conditioning extras that you can use to make your air conditioning system – ducted or split – more versatile and flexible.

We’re talking about features like:

  • Wi-Fi control
  • Voice activation
  • Room temperature and motion sensors

All of these features can make your system just that little bit more convenient and easy to use. Unfortunately, it does make things a little more expensive.

Luckily, these extras can be retrofitted into your system after the fact – there’s no pressure to get them installed immediately.

We use systems that have compatibility with these extras built-in, allowing us to add powerful extras to your air conditioning afterwards to bring down the cost of your initial installation.
