Buying air conditioner dilemma

Recently was looking to buy an air conditioner for my Sydney home. Naturally I hit the internet and stared to get to educate myself with what options to buy one of these home enhancing appliances. It wasn’t all about the options of where to buy air conditioning unit but also what type of a/c will suit my needs.

As soon as you call an air conditioning company, contractor or visit one of the showrooms or shops that sell all sorts of appliances like tv, microwaves, they will start talking the power ratings, energy efficiency rating and pretty much what they think is best option for you. As a consumer you just don’t know if their advice is biased for obvious and not so clear reasons. Example would be that the a/c manufacturer Daikin air has a promotion this month where they reward the shop with bonus volume discounts if they sell so many units.

Another example could be that they had a good experience with their own unit and making a personal judgement call that is completely anecdotal and may not bet the best fit for you. And a final reason may be that the sales person’s commission percentage and margin happens to be highest with Fujitsu air conditioners. The question really becomes whether you should be talking to someone from the appliance shop selling all different appliances and then hire an installation company yourself or go with shop’s preferred contractor or have a completely different approach to it all and talk to an air conditioning company in Sydney like Frost air who will give you best advice to suit your needs, sell you the unit and be responsible and guarantee the installation quality. This is a one stop shop approach and I personally prefer that one. Should anything go wrong especially while under warranty period, you know who to call – why would you buy your air conditioner any other way!

If you are like me and decided to go with the the small local business who sell, install and service air conditioners in Sydney, you would want to then consult your trusted search engine and find someone that you are happy to give business to. A company that you’re comfortable talking to, someone that took extra time to take your details and match your needs with an appropriate solution. Another important consideration is to ask them what their delivery turnaround is as you don’t want to end up waiting for the unit delivery and then installation process to drag on as the particular unit may be on back order.
