Air Conditioning Options

As you probably know, the Australian summertime can be extremely hot. When I moved to Australia from England, I knew it would be warm, but I wasn't ready for the intense heat. I had bought a home on the outskirts of Sydney. It was a great place but unfortunately, it didn't have an HVAC system. I moved in during the winter time, so this wasn't a problem. However, when the weather began to warm up, the interior of my home became very uncomfortable. I called in an HVAC contractor who explained my options before installing a modern HVAC system which keeps my house nice and cool.

5 Things to Consider Before Hiring a Commercial HVAC Professional

by Herminia Lopez

Air conditioners are indispensable units in any workplace. The moment an AC unit breaks down, you will strive to have it replaced or repaired as soon as possible to reinstate normalcy at the office. The haste associated with this process can lead to costly mistakes when looking for a commercial air conditioning professional to handle the repairs or replacement. If you want to stay clear of unfortunate and expensive incidences, you should consider the following things before settling for a particular company.

Expected Costs

The charges for replacing a damaged air conditioner are contingent on the extent of damage, quality of the replacement parts and the unit's size. After diagnosing the fault, ask the contractor to give you a quote for the repairs. Have at least three candidates from which you can compare rates, and settle for the one who offers the most reasonable deal. However, you should not choose a handyman over a commercial air conditioning expert just to cut costs. Again, insist that the contractor gives you their estimate while using quality parts.

Durability of the repairs

A competent HVAC professional should inspect the AC unit and give you an estimation of how long the repairs will last before another fault occurs. Often, they will put into consideration the age, maintenance and usage to determine the unit's durability. This information will prove valuable since you will be in a position to make financial arrangements before the unit breaks down.


Often, the manufacturer's warranty will have expired before an air conditioning unit will begin to show any defective signs. Therefore, you won't be able to receive free or subsidised repairs. But, some commercial air conditioning service providers offer a warranty on their services. If the unit breaks down within the stipulated timeframe, you are entitled to free or subsidised services. Apart from guaranteeing the quality of services provided, it also shows the contractor's professionalism.

Company Reputation

The HVAC company's image and reputation are essential when deciding whom to hire. Some online research should inform you about their experience, licensing and accreditations. You can also go through their customer reviews and testimonials for more insight regarding their quality of customer service.

After Sale Services

Most reputable commercial air conditioning service providers offer after-sale services. During summer months, AC units are known to break down a lot. It would be a relief knowing that you have the support of a responsive after-sales service team during such emergencies. 

By putting these tips into consideration, you will be sure to  get the best value for your investment.
