The cost of installing a split system air conditioner costs between $400 – $900, depending on a range of factors such as accessing the area for the external unit, the model and brand to be installed, and how many split system air conditioners you will need to be installed as the cost per unit decreases if more than one is required in a single home.

air conditioner installation

Split system air conditioning services have an average price of $75/hr. This is only an average, though, and actual costs can still change from job to job. Typically, rates range from $65/hr to $88/hr.

Where does this pricing data come from?

All prices stated in the above article are based on FY 2016 pricing data compiled by ServiceSeeking.com.au. The figures resulted from a comprehensive analysis of quotes submitted by Split System Air Conditioning Specialists on the site from July 2015 to July 2016.

Factors that affect split system air conditioning costs

Although split system air conditioners are one of the more affordable options, prices can still differ widely because of each home’s requirements. The actual cost of your job depends on a number of factors including:

Size of the area

Larger areas require air conditioners with higher cooling capacity. For a mid-sized space of around 25 to 30 sqm, you’ll need a split system with a capacity of around 3.7 kilowatt-hours to 6 kilowatt-hours, give or take. Measure the size of your room and ask your chosen air conditioning specialist for advice on what cooling capacity is most suitable.

Cooling capacity of the air conditioner

Air conditioners with higher cooling capacity are more expensive than those with lower cooling capacity. Wondering whether you should ask your installer to supply the unit as well or buy from a store? Make sure to check all your options and go for the one that can give you the best deal.

Other materials needed

Tradies may charge extra for the cost of the materials to be used in the installation. These include cooling chemicals, cabling, piping, etc. The expenses also tend to add up if the job involves installing more than one unit.

Additional service

Removing and replacing an existing split system is usually more expensive than a new installation because it is more time-consuming and labour-intensive. Since most installers charge hourly rates, any extra task that takes longer to complete naturally means additional costs.

Different split system air conditioning rates throughout Australia

At about $65/hr, Victoria has the most affordable rate for split system air conditioning services in the country. Meanwhile, rates for the same service in New South Wales and Queensland are at around $70/hr and $72/hr respectively.

To ensure that you get the best possible service, hire only licensed and insured split system air conditioning specialists. You can easily find them on ServiceSeeking.com.au.
