Builders like you have one thing in mind when starting a project: getting the best possible sale price when the property eventually goes on the market.
You’ve got a great location. The plot is sizable. You’ve splashed out for high quality appliances and fittings.
However, you can’t forget the essentials such as air conditioning!
If you want to add value to your project, air conditioning is a no-brainer – after all, who would want to buy a home without air conditioning with how hot Brisbane summers can get?
Air conditioning installation in Brisbane is essential to getting a good sale price – but how can you get the maximum return with your project’s cooling system?
If possible, install a ducted air conditioning system
While air conditioning installation definitely adds value to your project, certain types of systems add more value than others.
In particular, ducted air conditioning is a big-ticket item that adds a “wow” factor to your home. Most people are accustomed to split systems, and love the extra power and coverage that a ducted system offers.
Not to mention, ducted cooling grilles are sleek and unobtrusive. Appearance and presentation are some of the most important factors buyers look at, after all!
On the other hand however, ducted air conditioning installation involves a higher up-front price.
Depending on what you’re building, you may have a better return if you stick with wall-mounted split or multi-split systems.
This is especially true if you’re building townhouses, smaller houses, or units.
In these cases, a full ducted system may not be the best way of spending your money, as the installation may cost you more money than the value it adds to your home.
Before committing to one type of system or another, engage an air conditioning expert in Brisbane.
We’ll perform an in-depth system design process, selecting the most appropriate type of system and can even provide quotes for multiple types of systems.
Armed with this information, you’ll be able to decide on the system that maximises your return.
Think of air conditioning extras
Most homes in Brisbane have air conditioning systems.
However, most only have relatively basic systems – they’ll cool, and if they have reverse cycle technology, will heat during winter, too. But that’s usually about it.
If you want to add value to your project with air conditioning, you’ll need a system that offers great extras to maximise comfort, control, and efficiency.
The issue is that air conditioning is what many in the real estate and construction business refer to as an “invisible” upgrade. It’s valuable, sure – however, it isn’t as immediately visible.
Going ducted is one way of making your air conditioning system more immediately valuable – another is by offering luxury air conditioning extras.

Choose a reverse cycle system
While we still call them air conditioners, the truth is that the vast majority of brand-new air conditioning systems use reverse cycle technology to provide both cooling and heating.
In fact, HVAC systems are so widespread, that they’re essentially the industry standard nowadays.
While reverse cycle systems may not exactly add value like it did a couple of years ago, using an older system that only performs the one function can take value away from your home!
Make your air conditioning as unobtrusive as possible
As any real estate agent will tell you, appearances are everything. To get the most value when you sell your project, it will have to be as presentable as possible.
This is the reason why flourishes like marble cooktops and good property staging add so much to a home’s value!
Applying this same principle to your air conditioning can bump up the sale price.
Ducted air conditioning offers a seamless appearance, with grilles that sit flush with the ceiling. Likewise, multi split systems come with options for bulkheads. Both of these can help create a cleaner appearance, which can win over buyers.
However, this isn’t the only way you can improve the appearance of your air conditioning!
Small duct air conditioning comes with a number of benefits:
- It’s more energy-efficient than traditional ducted aircon
- SDS allows homes with less ceiling space to support ducted cooling
- It’s easier to install
One of its key features however is its flexibility. Thanks to the narrowness of the ducts (as little as 5cm across), small duct systems can be installed just about anywhere.
Thanks to this flexibility, you can get creative with your designs. Small duct systems can be installed in:
The options (and styles) are limitless!
