Air conditioning | Expert guide

How much does air conditioning cost?

The cost of a new air conditioning system is based on a number of different factors, including:

  • The type of system being installed: ducted systems are more expensive than split systems, because they involve more extensive installation processes.
  • The amount of space being cooled: if you have a large space to cool, then you’ll need an air conditioner with higher output, usually at a higher cost.
  • The brand of the air conditioner: high quality products are more expensive, but they offer more efficient performance and greater longevity, for long term savings.
  • The energy rating of the air conditioner: you’ll pay more for split systems that have a good energy rating, but you’ll save on electricity bills over the long run.
  • The amount of piping and cable needed: larger properties require more materials, like piping and cables, which can increase overall costs.
  • The amount of ducting needed (for ducted air conditioners): again, larger properties will require more ducting, which adds to the cost.
  • Whether the switchboard needs to be upgraded: it’s important that your electrical systems can cater for your air conditioner—if they need to be upgraded, your installation will cost more.

Air conditioning installations vary greatly, depending on size, product, and configuration.  Consequently, the cost can range anywhere between $750 to $20,000 or more.

How much does air conditioning cost to run?

Most modern air conditioners cost between $0.25 to $0.95 per hour to run while cooling your house, but that does depend on the size of each room.1

Which type of air conditioner do I need?

Just like pricing, your ideal system will depend on several factors including:

  • The amount of space being cooled: to cool only one or two rooms, a split system is cheapest. If you want to cool three or more rooms from a single controller, a ducted system is a more appropriate option.
  • The amount of control you’d like: if you want to operate your air conditioner from a single central device, then a modern system with smart technology capabilities is the right choice for you.
  • Energy efficiency: if a low carbon footprint and even lower power bills is high on your agenda, then an energy efficient system will be worth the extra initial cost.
  • The noise of the system: some brands of air conditioner are quieter than others, and that can influence your decision.
  • The look of the system: wall mounted split systems are more visible than ducted ones, which is something some people like to avoid.


What are the benefits of air conditioning?

  • Improved sleep—good quality sleep is critical to our health. Air conditioning can provide you with consistent temperatures each night, which makes for easier sleeping conditions.
  • Reduces the risk of dehydration and heat stroke—the Australian climate can be punishing in summer, but with air conditioning you can stay cool and hydrated more easily.
  • Air purification—air conditioners use advanced air filters to purify the air that you breathe, using a process that removes dust and allergens.
  • Better home security—by keeping cool with the windows closed, you can enjoy greater home security.
  • Fewer insects—with the windows closed, fewers mozzies and flies will be able to get in.


Benefits of ducted air conditioning

  • Ducted air conditioners are well concealed using advanced wall and ceiling ducts, which means a neater, less cluttered look for your home.
  • Ducted systems offer far better energy efficiency for large properties and commercial spaces.
  • Most modern ducted air conditioners are quiet—you won’t even know they’re there.
  • Ducted air conditioners operate using a central system of control, which means you can manage your temperatures through a single point.
  • For the reasons above, a ducted air conditioner can increase the value of your home.


Benefits of split system air conditioning

  • Split systems are far cheaper, and far easier to install than their ducted counterparts
  • Some modern split systems are also very quiet.
  • Split systems are easy to maintain – cleaning the filters every 1-2 months, is usually enough to keep your air quality high.


What is reverse cycle air conditioning?

Reverse cycle air conditioning offers cooling and heating options. It is a great alternative to a heater, even for Brisbane’s milder winters, and is often more energy efficient than older heaters.

What is inverter technology?

Inverter technology allows your air conditioner to control the speed of its compressor. In older systems, the compressor only has two modes: on and off. As a result, they run at their maximum capacity until the desired temperature is reached, before turning off completely until the temperature increases again. This results in decreased efficiency and increased power consumption. Inverters prompt the compressor to run at the exact speed needed to regulate the temperature, without having to overexert itself.

Inverters have allowed air conditioning systems to become around 30% more efficient.



Most installations take just one day, although ducted air conditioner installations in larger properties can continue for two.

Split system

For split system air conditioners, the indoor unit is mounted high on a wall. The outdoor unit is mounted discreetly in a well-ventilated area, where it won’t get in the way.

Ducted system

Indoor ducted units are typically fitted within ceiling cavities, but they can sometimes be fitted beneath the floor if necessary. The outdoor units are placed out of the way, again in a discreet well-ventilated location.

We use and recommend high quality air conditioners from Panasonic, Daikin, and Mitsubishi. These systems offer greater efficiency and durability, with the added bonus of lower power bills over their long lifetimes.
