Keep Your Space Perfectly Climate-Controlled with Ideal Air! Leading Melbourne Specialists in Heating and Cooling

Residential Air Conditioning Installation

Your indoor air temperature system plays a huge role in the comfort of your family at home. Thankfully, the team at Ideal Air are here to help you achieve optimal temperature and air quality by ensuring good air filtration no matter the season.

A good temperature control system is an investment, bringing both greater happiness and health to the lives of you and your loved ones. With Ideal Air, your air conditioning installation will be a breeze.

Our team has experience installing air conditioners and heaters of all kinds, offering a vast range of options for keeping your home at the ideal temperature. If you are looking to keep the entire home at a comfortable temperature, ducted systems may be the right choice. Evaporative cooling and split systems are other popular choices. If you aren’t sure what the right option is for you, Ideal Air is here to offer our professional advice.

What is involved in a split system installation?

As a split system installer, we have found that this is one of the more common choices for heating and cooling in homes. Split systems – while only controlling the temperature in a single space – can have a lower cost upfront, are quick and easy to install, and offer more flexibility.

If you have decided that a split system is the right choice for your home, a member of the Ideal Air team will first assess where the optimal location for the unit is. They will take into account factors such as the sunlight your home gets, vent locations, air ducts, ceiling space and which walls will best support your split system.

A split system is made up of two separate units that work together – one outdoors and one indoors. When we start your air conditioner installation, the first thing we’ll do is mount the indoor unit with a mounting bracket. After that, we’ll make a precise hole in the wall to connect the electrical wiring and create drainage lines. Any wiring we run through the hole will be protected with a PVC tube.

Once we have secured your indoor system to the wall, the Ideal Air technician will install the outdoor unit (also known as an outdoor condenser), connecting both parts of the split system together. From there, you’ll be able to enjoy your new heating and cooling unit!

What is involved in a ducted system installation?

Ducted systems are an excellent choice for homeowners who are looking to cool and filter the air throughout the entire home. By installing ducted air conditioning in your home, you guarantee the highest quality of heating and cooling, year-round. This will help to keep your family comfortable and give you the freedom to choose different temperatures for different areas of your home. 

Our team of expert technicians will install your ducted system in the floor or ceiling, depending on your personal preference. The heating and cooling ducts will be strategically placed and air will move through the ducts to provide the best temperature control for your home.

At Ideal Air, we pride ourselves on completing installations using top-quality workmanship with a quick turnaround. This ensures that you can enjoy an optimal temperature in your home as soon as possible. 

What type of air conditioner is right for you?

When choosing the right air conditioner for you, your family and your home, there are a few factors to consider. Air con installation cost is the most obvious, but other factors worth your consideration include:

  • How many rooms you need your system to heat or cool
  • Layout and size of each room
  • Energy efficiency
  • System reliability
  • Noise of a heating or cooling system

We are here to help you get the best temperature control for your home and individual circumstances.
