Air Conditioning Installation Brisbane

Professional Air Conditioning Installation and Supply Service by Brisbane Based Dawson Electric

At Dawson Electric, we are the air conditioning installation Brisbane wide experts. We understand the need for air conditioning all year round in your home or business.  During the summer months, it can get hot and sticky outside and a fan just isn’t enough to beat the Queensland heat and humidity. You don’t need to escape to the local shops to escape the elements when you can enjoy the use of a split system air conditioning unit at home or work. And with a domestic split system air conditioner installation, you can also make use of the heating features of a reverse cycle unit during the cooler months in Brisbane.

When getting Dawson Electric's split system air conditioning installation in your Brisbane home, you will not only be more comfortable in your surroundings, but you can rest assured that installation is of the highest professional standard. Your air conditioner installation allows you to choose from a variety of reputable brands such as Fujitsu and Mitsubishi Electric.

Why Get a Split System Air Conditioner Installed?

As mentioned above, not only can you cool but you can heat on a reverse cycle depending on your needs at the time. However, there are many more fantastic benefits of having a split system air conditioning installed at home or the office around Brisbane. You can have individual air conditioning systems in different rooms allowing you to choose the right temperature should one room have more sunlight than another or one have morning sun and the other the afternoon sun. You can then customise your settings as necessary for each room that you have a unit installed.

A split system is an excellent option for compact domestic spaces rather than a large building. This is great for an office of up to 20 people or an open area of your home such as the kitchen, dining and entertainment area. Another great feature of a domestic split system air conditioning unit is that the compressor is outside of the building. The unit feeds outside air into the room after going through a filtration and conditioning process to ensure you have the cleanest of air with no leaves or debris from outside.

Did we mention that domestic split system air conditioning units are also known for being more economical than most other systems as they use less energy, saving you money? Not only do they have a lower maintenance cost for parts such as filters, with electricity prices in Queensland constantly rising, but you can also be comfortable without worrying about adding too much to your utility bills.

Things to Consider When Choosing an Air Conditioner Installation Service

  • Ensuring that your air conditioning system is only installed securely
  • That your split system air conditioning unit is in the correct and optimum location
  • All the wiring is in excellent condition with no damage and the correct wiring is used
  • No damage is caused to your system due to improper handling
  • Your manufacturer’s warranty remains valid
  • A certificate of compliance will be issued to you
  • Advice and recommendations of which system is best suited for your space
  • Making sure your system is economic

How to Choose the Right Air Conditioning Unit for You

With Dawson Electric's air conditioning installation, our technicians will go through all these details with you during your initial consultation. However, just some of the things they will need to consider include;

  • How big is the room the system will be installed in? 
  • How many people will use the room?
  • What kind of electrical or heating devices are used? 
  • What BTU (British Thermal Unit) capacity is needed in terms of a kilowatt power output? 

Should a unit be too big, then it will not be as energy efficient as it could be, or too small then it won’t cool or heat the room to your desired temperature. As an average guideline for a domestic dwelling, the below standards if a room is:

  • 10-20m2 then a unit of 2.6kW should be adequate
  • 20-30m2 use a 3.5kW unit
  • 30-45m2 would suit a 5-6kW unit
  • 45-65m2 would benefit a 7-8kW unit

Money Saving Tips for Owning an Air Conditioner

If you’re thinking about your electricity costs, © CHOICE has done their own testing and found that the approximate yearly cost is between $286-586 per year based on electricity costs of 30 cents/kWh. However, by having a professional air conditioning installer do the hard calculations of choosing the right system, this can help reduce your cost by ensuring that you have the right size for your needs and be more energy efficient.

Another handy tip during warmer weather is to try not to put your air conditioning setting as cold as you can, keep it above 20°C and try not to use if the temperature inside is 25°C or below. Improving the air flow with ceiling fans can also be a cost-effective way to keep cool. In those colder months, utilise blankets, warm clothing and a nice hot drink until it gets to 8°C or cooler and then use the reverse cycle option for heating. This doesn’t only save on the energy bills but also the wear and tear of the unit and reduces maintenance costs.
