Air conditioners are complex mechanical systems that depend on a wide variety of conditions to work correctly!

Air conditioning units must be the correct size to meet a certain “load” on the house. They are designed to have a certain amount of refrigerant, known as “charge”. They are also designed to have a certain amount of airflow across the coils. When any of these things changes, the system will have problems. If you produce more heat indoors either from having more people or appliances on or because of other changes in the house the air conditioning may not be able to keep up.

If the refrigerant charge on the system leaks out it lowers the capacity of the system – you will simply get less cooling and the system will not work efficiently.

If airflow across the outdoor condenser coil is reduced the ability to reject heat outdoors is reduced and again the capacity of the system may go down, especially at higher outdoor temperatures.

What is the Aircon installation process

air conditioning cairns
  1. We’ll discuss your intentions for your home/property. This may include number of rooms requiring air conditioning, and number of a/c units required. Makes, types, warranties, performance, and styles of air conditioners preferred to suit your home/property’s décor and of course, your budget.
  2. Measure & quote. We’ll crunch the numbers to determine the thermal efficiency of a particular space, or collection of rooms. The costs and timeframe will be explained in full.
  3. Hand shake. Once agreed upon, we’ll rock up on a date & time to suit your timetable.
  4. Air-con installation day. We’ll aim to have your install done in a timely fashion, with minimal disruption to either yourself, or your tenants.
  5. We’ll explain our backup service, care and any maintenance package you may wish to proceed with.
  6. Enjoy your climate-controlled home or property!

Property investor? Add value with an upgraded air conditioning system

Most investors are looking for any way to maximise their returns with either increased cash-flow, equity or added value to their asset or portfolio. Done well, one can avoid a capital improvement situation with the addition of a new or upgraded air conditioning system. This is a win-win for any investor with decreased maintenance costs, an attractant for tenants, and potential yield increases/rental returns.

Cairns’ property market is an evolving entity but nonetheless fruitful for investors. Median prices for all units have been climbing steadily since 2012, and rental yields have ascended from around 5% in 2010 to a very healthy 7.5-10% at present, depending on the suburb your property is in.

The numbers for all houses are not quite as good, so it would make sense to have new, or upgraded air conditioning installed for your tenants, as well as for the benefit of one of your most valuable assets.

 

About Nathan from Easy Cool Air

Easy cool air

About Us

My name is Nathan Chamberlain and I’m the Director of Easy Cool Air P/L.

I first started working in the Air-conditioning industry in 2011 as a labourer installing spiral duct work in Perth, Western Australia. This continued until I was given an opportunity to take on an apprenticeship in Refrigeration and Air-conditioning in 2012.

I specialised in the installation of various types of Air-conditioning units in commercial, industrial and domestic use. I stayed with the one company for the duration of my apprenticeship, building trust where I was promoted to Leading Hand, taking on more responsibility and organising jobs to be carried out in a timely matter.

One memorable challenge was when I was given the opportunity to work in Papua New Guinea installing chilled water systems into banks of IT server rooms. This continued until 2015 when I was signed off my apprenticeship three months earlier than required, due to persistence and a drive to succeed.

Shortly thereafter, I decided to begin my journey to start a business in Refrigeration and Air-conditioning. I was sub-contracting to companies installing Air-conditioning in Schools which was a part of a BAS program. This led to traveling all over Western Australia to small country communities installing Air-conditioning into rural public schools.

I then made my way over to Cairns in September 2016 to work as a contractor at the James Cook University campus in the CBD. This led to bigger opportunities developing business relationships with potential and ongoing clients.

Easy Cool Air is now a company based in Cairns. We are here to comfort you and design and install quality Refrigeration & Air-conditioning systems to suit your needs.

Why Should I Regularly Service And Maintain My Air Conditioner?

We all know in everyday life that if we don’t maintain something, it will probably, eventually, either come to a screeching halt, fall over or break.

Our bodies, vehicles, homes, plants, and even our relationships need maintenance. As do your air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Several undesirable things will start
to happen if we don’t:

  1. Under-perform – not cool or heat to their optimum
  2. Odours from bacteria; germs and mould become airborne creating health issues
  3. Become inefficient – resulting in using more power, or require more power for your desired temperature
  4. Leak refrigerant
  5. A/C unit components can malfunction
  6. Drains can become blocked – leaks or spillage can occur where you don’t want them

There are some DIY maintenance tasks you can do for your indoor split-system unit. Firstly, make sure you periodically clean the filters. These can be rinsed with water, leave out to dry, then refit. Depending on where you live, this could be done anywhere between every 6 – 12 months.  Alternatively, we can perform as little or as much maintenance as you need to keep your system running at peak performance. Above all else, keeping on top of this will go a long way to preventing problems down the track.

Contact us anytime to discuss a maintenance plan and we’ll lay out our comprehensive checklist in plain Aussie language, not industry jargon.
