……..And why it really isn’t
If you’re in Darwin or Palmerston chances are you’ve had to get an air-conditioning quotation for installation. Chances are those air-con quotes can be vastly different. But there are a couple of ways to protect yourself from throwing away good money.
When it comes to installation of airconditioners you really need to ask yourself about the product you are being quoted on. There are some brands out there being sold off as gods gift to summer when they really are just a lower/middle ground unit in the whole scheme of things that are just going to cause grief if things go pear shaped during the warranty period.
For example one particular brand that is being seen all over town these days and many new builds is just that – a builders grade airconditioner – one way you can tell – where abouts are the support staff located ? If you have to phone overseas for warranty or after care support – that’s a headache.
With our packages just for example, if you have a warranty issue, call us, we’ll attend and if it’s a manufacturers warranty complaint WE do the paperwork for you and get the ball rolling. Any other reputable company will also do the same. It saves you time, effort, lack of comfort with a faster turn around on parts and a company familiar with you and your installation.
The price ? Is it the initial price that’s expensive ? Or the cost over the period of the installation. If you are going to take a punt on a fly by nighter – are they going to be around for an installers warranty? And with the costs of labour and materials, overheads – why is that quote so cheap and that quote a higher price ? Well, an initial higher price quite often means lower cost over install period anther way to look at it is – saving money from the moment of installation.
Plenty of food for thought.
