When purchasing a split type air conditioning system (Hi Wall) with installation, our prices are based on a single storey back to back installation (no special access equipment other than 6-step ladder is required).

The term Standard BACK TO BACK (B2B) INSTALLATION refers to a split system that has two main components, a wall mounted indoor unit with refrigeration pipes that penetrate through the wall and straight down to the outdoor unit positioned directly below hence the name ‘Back to Back’. Your installation may be a standard Back to Back or you may need extra piping, so the unit is installed in your preferred location. Below is an example of a back to back install. All website pricing is based on a distance no longer than 2 meters.

We offer installation of air conditioning systems into homes and building during the construction process and can liaise with your builder or architect to make sure the process is handled efficiently and correctly.
