Time to Upgrade

Home air conditioning systems keep our home agreeable all year round and if you’re not happy with your home cooling and heating performance, have one of our air conditioning team assess and advise if your unit is past the point of repair and time to upgrade.

Below are some great things to consider if upgrading is on your mind.

Energy Efficiency

Regardless of how well you maintain your air conditioning unit, sooner or later it will lose its energy efficiency and begin costing you more. 

As well as keeping temperature levels consistent and improving air quality, new units will save you cash when compared with your old unit. According to some manufacturers such as Daikin, who when comparing 10 year old models, found the new systems up to 46% more efficient. This means the cost to run a new unit would be substantially less than continuing to use your old system.

Therefore by investing in a new air conditioner system, you can save significantly on each energy bill even to the point of covering the expense of your new unit!


Innovation advances have been occurring at an unparalleled speed in recent years, meaning that air conditioning units have evolved and improved, so if your installation is around 10 years old, its performance might not be as good as newer equipment. 

The technology offered today is designed to last longer and require less maintenance over its lifetime. The investment in a new unit will pay for itself in lower maintenance and running and repair costs alone.


Age can eventually catch up to any air conditioner and it will simply not run as well and replacing parts to keep it efficient is no longer cost effective. Even a good air conditioning system that has been well maintained and looked after has a lifespan of around 12-15 years.

However all mechanical products will eventually need to be replaced. Plus if the system hasn’t been maintained and cleaned regularly over it’s life, causing it to work harder, this can reduce the lifespan significantly.

If you want to know the age of your system, there will be a manufactured date on the side of your unit.

That New Look

If you are renovating, selling or simply working on improving the look and style of your home you should also consider switching your air conditioning to a less noticeable and more stylish option.

Split systems are now smaller and more attractive and are available in colours to suit your decor, alternatively there’s a wide variety of vented and in-wall devices that are barely visible and run quietly. Plus an added bonus of modern control systems, that are easy to use and have convenient Wi-Fi control.
