Choose an experienced air conditioning installer
Take it from us, air conditioner installation is a very hands-on job. Many of the quirks that come with different air conditioning systems and brands can only be learned on-the-job.
With that in mind, one of the most important things to look for is experience!
How do you figure out how much experience your air conditioner installer has? Simplest answer, you could ask.
If your air conditioning team has a good website though, they ought to show off their experience! Tri-Tech was founded almost 30 years ago, while our directors boast more than 35 years’ experience each.
We are proud of our company and our team, and are confident in delivering the right aircon solutions, thanks in part to our extensive experience.
Are they licensed and registered?
Like any other trade, air conditioning installation isn’t a job you can turn up to and start doing the next day.
To become an air conditioner installer, applicants need to obtain a Certificate III in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration as well as a Refrigerant Handling License.
Businesses need to also be registered and licensed with various bodies to ensure compliance and honour workmanship guarantees and insurance, etc.
Air conditioning installers in Queensland are required to register with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC).
These pieces of paper don’t just tell you that your air conditioning technician knows their stuff. Applicants are required to:
- Provide written references
- Possess a minimum level of experience
- Offer evidence of technical qualifications
A QBCC license guarantees all of these things, and is proof that your air conditioning specialist can safely and competently look after your needs.
They should also be registered with the Australian Refrigeration Council, or ARC. ARC is Australia’s peak body for the refrigeration and aircon industry, providing leadership and knowledge to the industry. They also administer refrigeration handling licences to professionals in the industry.
Does your air conditioning installer have professional paperwork?
While this one isn’t necessarily proof of high quality, it’s definitely a sign that your air conditioning operator is running a serious business, and not a fly-by-night, cash in hand operation.
You should expect:
- Detailed quotes
- Full disclosure regarding expenses and charges
- Further information regarding the product and installation
A paper (or digital!) trail tells you that your air conditioning installer is willing to commit to and deliver their promise.
Moreover, getting everything in writing can provide clarity and an extra layer of security if things don’t go as planned.
The relationship between you and your air conditioning specialist doesn’t end once installation is complete.
Like any highly-complex piece of machinery, your air con requires ongoing maintenance to prolong its life and stay in top working order.
When deciding whether or not to stick with your current air conditioning installer for ongoing support, ask them what type of post-sale service they offer.
Does your tech follow-up to make sure everything’s working as intended?
How quickly do they respond to warranty issues?
Can they attend to yearly check-ups to ensure your system is reaching its potential?
