Air Conditioning Replacement Service

A functional and effective air conditioner is an important part of any Australian home, keeping you and your family comfortable all year round.

When you find yourself relying on an older air conditioning unit, it can lead to less effective cooling, greater running costs and inconvenient breakdowns. An air conditioning replacement can maximise your comfort thanks to the latest in temperature-control technology while also saving on your electricity bills.

If you are looking for an AC replacement, the team at Ideal Air is here to help. Our expert technicians provide a fast and effective air conditioning replacement service that will see your new unit up and running in no time.

When Should You Consider Replacing Your Air Conditioner? 

As air conditioning equipment ages, the internal components naturally start to wear out and break. This leads to higher running costs, frequent repair bills and constant frustrations. Repair bills can add up quickly and it is common that these can exceed 50% of the cost to have the system fully replaced. 

It can be difficult to know when to make the big decision to replace your air conditioner rather than have it repaired. Generally, systems over 12 years old will begin to have more frequent breakdowns, with the expected lifespan to be between 15 and 20 years. If the system is getting toward the back end of its life and starts breaking down, leaking or being particularly noisy, replacing it may be the best option.

Once a cooling system has broken down a few times, it is likely to keep doing so. Air conditioners perform worse as components wear out and degrade, which also increases your energy bill as the system works harder. It’s a good idea to replace a cooling system that has broken down a few times, as it’ll be costing you more money in the long run.

What System Is Right for You?

There are many things to consider before choosing a heating and cooling system replacement, such as how many rooms the unit will be affecting, the size and layout of the space, reliability of the system and energy efficiency. Options for your new air conditioning unit include:

  • – Reverse cycle split systems
  • – Reverse cycle multi split
  • – Reverse cycle ducted
  • – Central gas ducted heating
  • – Evaporative cooling

Ideal Air’s experienced technicians are able to install all major air conditioner brands, such as Daikin, Mitsubishi, Hitachi and more. 

If you aren’t sure which system type or model will be best for your family, the Ideal Air team is happy to offer our expert advice to help get the temperature control in your home just right.
