  • Split system reverse-cycle

A particular system or design may be better suited to your premises and your requirements, than others. Our experts can determine this through a site visit and close consultation with you to establish your needs.

There are many brands, sizes and styles on the market with varying user-features, performance and mounting options ranging from 2kW (the smallest split system) to a larger 25kW cooling capacity, which suits larger spaces.

Air Conditioning installation Melbourne by Form Electrical

Split system air conditioning

Split system air conditioners come in smaller and larger models giving you the versatility to cool either one room, or an entire home. They provide cooling by drawing the warm air from inside and dissipating it outside, via an outdoor condenser. The indoor and outdoor components are connected via pipework and electrical wiring, with drainage lines to remove condensation. Split systems are a great low budget option and they are quiet, cheap to run and don’t require ductwork. They can be mounted on the wall, floor or ceiling.

Multi-unit split system air conditioning

Multi-unit split system air conditioning is a tailored setup of multiple split systems operating from one outdoor condenser unit. The units can operate simultaneously, meaning you can have rooms with varying temperatures throughout your home or building. This works great for multi-story homes, apartments, townhouses and small office buildings and is a good space-saver, with only one condenser unit needed outside. Our expert team can tailor your air conditioning installation setup including the amount of units, unit types, and placement based on your space.

Ducted air conditioning

Ducted air conditioning provides streamlined climate control and a consistent temperature in every room. The cooling travels through ductwork installed in the roof or under the floor, entering every room via outlets located in either the floor or ceiling, making these systems quiet and unobtrusive. There is a central control centre with options for multiple control stations and some also allow customisable zones, for personalised temperature variance or usage timing according to your lifestyle. Single phase and three-phase options are available for high-powered homes and small buildings.

Features of air conditioning

Operational and aesthetic features all contribute to the function, performance and comfort your air conditioning appliance provides you. It is your investment and it is there to work for you!

  • Remote control / control centre
  • Adjustable fan settings
  • Customisable air distribution angles
  • Higher and lower temperature
  • Timer/clock and thermostat
  • Smart features
  • Size and appearance

When selecting air conditioning, consider the things that are important to you when it comes to placement, operational and user features. We are all unique and there are a variety of air conditioner makes and models on the market to cater. Our team can provide recommendations based on your preferences and budget.

Air Conditioning Installation Melbourne

We want to source the product that’s perfect for you (not what others want to sell you) so you can get the most out of your investment, use it in the most cost effective way and enjoy the comfort of your new appliance.

Air conditioning designed for you

Our experts will look at your home or commercial building, ask you questions and chat with you about the way you will use your cooling so we can recommend the best air conditioning type, size and setup based on your preferences and your space, including:

  • Room/property size and shape
  • Air flow
  • Natural light
  • Location of doors/windows

This onsite assessment will help us assess whether multiple units are required and we can also check your switchboard to confirm that it’s safe to accommodate your new appliance into your existing electrical system.

Mounting your air conditioning

Mounting equipment holds your air conditioning unit (and its outdoor components) in place, in the desired location. Mounting should be practical, safe and unobtrusive.

Indoor units can be wall mounted, floor standing or ceiling mounted using mounting brackets. Outdoor units can be fixed using roof-mounting brackets or poly-concrete bases.

Fast and safe installation

At Form Electrical we use only quality tools, materials and parts to ensure a quality installation with all equipment and connections running seamlessly, so your new appliance performs and lasts. Installation will include:

  • Installing mounting mechanisms
  • Constructing holes through walls
  • Installing wiring and drainage pipes
  • Mounting the indoor unit
  • Fitting/mounting the outdoor condenser unit
  • Testing and instructions/advice

Following your air conditioning installation we will show you how to use your new appliance and offer expert advice on the best ways to cool your home, including some good tips and tricks!

You should always use a Registered Electrical Contractor for your installation. Air conditioning units are hard-wired appliances, required by law to be installed by a qualified, licensed electrician and comply with Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules AS/NZS 3000:2018. Form Electrical is a Registered Electrical Contractor (REC 30327) so your installation will be 100% safe and compliant.

Do you repair air conditioners?

Yes. Form Electrical offers repair and maintenance services for air conditioners including regular testing and ‘Test and Tag’ for commercial air conditioners. Damaged air conditioners can sometimes require replacement parts, due to minor accidents and general wear and tear. Professional servicing by an expert technician checks your overall system condition and efficiency including working parts, connections, responsiveness and performance. Filters are cleaned and any build up such as dust and residue is removed, which may be affecting its performance. Keeping your system maintained also improves air quality and extends the lifespan of your appliance.
