Is your split system leaking, malfunctioning, or won’t turn on or off? It’s essential to invest in a service provider that understands how to maintain and prepare heating and cooling systems.

According to a report, sales for single-split systems are projected to increase at a 4% compound annual growth rate until 2036.

This article will explore different types of split systems, their components, and the importance of selecting a technician who does the job right!

Importance of Selecting an Experienced Technician

Beautiful Girl Turns On The Air Conditioner

Let’s look at some things you should consider before calling up a heating and cooling provider!

1. Make sure they are licensed

A split system keeps you warm during Melbourne winters and cool when there’s an unexpected hike in temperature, so you want to invest in a technician who knows what they’re doing.

The Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations Act 1995 (‘The Regulations’) details the licensing requirements for professionals who work in refrigeration and air conditioning systems. Trustworthy HVAC experts will have employed staff with these licences.

Don’t ask your neighbour. They most likely don’t have the credentials! Only a licensed HVAC specialist can fix your system, so look for technicians with a proven track record in supplying and installing various split systems (like the Aust Climate team!). If you would like accurate information on licensing law, reach out to the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment, and Water.

2. Search for transparent pricing

Is your split system refrigerant not working? When hoping to get anything repaired or maintained, you don’t want the price to be misleading before you commit to handing over money.

With the right heating and cooling provider, you can experience transparent, honest pricing straight off the bat, as well as comprehensive, written quotes before proceeding with the job. This way, you can trust your split system is receiving the best in professional care.

Additionally, if you’re tired of your old gas heating system, look into how to replace your gas heater with electric heating and cooling. It’s worth the time and investment.

3. Always check company reviews

Does your service provider of choice have an excellent operating history? Whenever your split system needs an urgent fix or regular maintenance, you don’t want to book the first heating and cooling specialist you find online.

Do some investigating! For example, the Aust Climate team of professionals has over 25 years of experience in the business, many 5-star reviews and testimonials, and a 6+ year workmanship guarantee.

Check ratings or reviews on their website or Google Reviews to ensure you get the highest service standard. If customers say that the service provider offers high-quality work and doesn’t hesitate to recommend them, this is a good way to know you’re paying for a trustworthy service. After all, you don’t want your split system to need additional repairs due to a faulty job.

4. They use quality suppliers

Reputable split system service providers that care about your home will always offer you the best split systems for optimal performance and energy efficiency. You don’t want to be directed towards an old, outdated model. Leading Australian supplies that they offer could be:

Daikin is a trusted brand that has innovated the heating and cooling industry since 1924. A split system air conditioning unit model–such as the Alira X–removes more than 90% of air pollutants, odours, viruses, mould, and allergens with its Steamer Technology.
