energy-efficient ways to cool and heat your home.

How much will it cost to install a new split system in Adelaide?
When calculating your new split system replacement cost, we will need to consider the
-The number of units being installed, as well as the size.

where the units are in your home.

Why is it cheaper to replace an older unit?
It is usually cheaper to replace older air-conditioning unit’s than to install a completely new
system. This is because the installer can usually use the same pathway for the piping, so
there is less needed in terms of drilling holes through walls or pour a concrete base and running a dedicated power feed.
The split system replacement cost of a back-to-back replacement unit at Domestic Air Conditioning Services SA will cost
approximately $600 including GST (Excluding the price of the new unit).

Insulation: Are the ceilings and walls insulated? What’s underneath and on top of the room?
