Air Conditioning Replacement

Air conditioning systems are perfect for maintaining a comfortable home or office environment, especially during Australia’s hot summer months. Unfortunately, like all mechanical systems, air conditioners can eventually break down and require repair or replacement. If you suspect your air conditioner is not functioning as it should, it may be time to consider an air conditioning replacement.

When To Get an Air Conditioning Replacement

When an air conditioner fails, it’s always best to consult with a professional air conditioning technician, like the friendly team here at Easy Cool Air. We can visit your home or business in Cairns and surrounds to determine if a simple repair will suffice, or if a new unit is required. Here are five signs that your air conditioner may require replacement:

Not cooling or heating effectively or weak airflow – Your air con might have a fault with the compressor or air ducting, or it may just need a simple filter clean. Regardless, it’s a good idea to get it checked.

Leaking refrigerant or other fluids – It’s vitally important to get leaks checked quickly, as it may be leaking refrigerant, which can pose a health risk.

Unusual smells or sounds – These can be innocuous, but they could also indicate mould build-up or a failing unit due to mechanical issues.

An increase in energy bills – An old, worn-out unit is likely to be less efficient, leading to increased energy usage.

Requiring frequent or major repairs – If you frequently need repairs or a major repair, it might be more cost-effective to upgrade.

It’s essential to address any of these issues promptly to prevent further damage and avoid health hazards. It’s also important to seek out a licensed installer for any air conditioning replacement, as air conditioners have parts that can be easily damaged, plus handling refrigerant can be hazardous. Our reputable air conditioning replacement team are all licensed technicians who have plenty of experience dealing with Cairns-specific issues.

How Much Does Air Conditioning Replacement Cost?

The cost of installing a new air conditioning unit can feel daunting, but it’s often more cost-effective than constantly repairing an old, inefficient unit. The costs can vary depending on the type of system required and the complexity of the installation (for instance, split-systems are generally less expensive than ducted systems), but we try to minimise costs while still offering the best possible service.

Air Conditioning Installation FAQs

In Far North Queensland, we do have an issue with geckos blowing up your A/C’s PCBs (printed circuit boards) which can become really expensive to replace. So, blue-chip brands like Mitsubishi and Panasonic provide more internal protection to prevent this situation. From a professional standpoint, it’s true to say you get what you pay for. Mitsubishi, Daikin, Fujitsu and Panasonic are our preferred brands.

This will depend on the size and capacity of the A/C unit that needs to be replaced. Contact Easy Cool Air for a free quote today

A general back to back split system will take roughly 4 hours to professionally install and have up and running. Other factors that may change this will include the ease of how cabling & piping can be routed to your new air conditioning unit.
HVAC is an acronym for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. HVAC systems are used on larger commercial buildings. It is a packaged unit that performs the whole air conditioning process, commonly installed on the roof of a building to save space. There is a supply outlet and a return outlet supplying conditioned air through duct work and returning air back to the packaged unit to repeat the cycle.
This does vary depending on the design and structure of your building or property. To give an accurate estimate, Easy Cool Air would need to come and measure up during a complimentary air conditioning assessment to provide a quote.
