You will have to utilise a trained air con unit installer for installation work if you are installing a unit on any building exterior.

Things to consider for an AC installation

Prior to making your purchase, you need to know a great deal about the area you hope to air condition. Your choice of location is going to be dependent upon your area of most use, but you also need to make sure that that area has enough space to accommodate an air con installation.

Where to Place your Unit

When you install an indoor unit, it’s imperative that you:

  • Avoid any direct sources of heat and sunlight.
  • Avoid spots where oil mist or sulphur exists or where any kind of gas can leak.
  • The wall that is going to hold the system needs to be strong enough. If it’s not, then consider constructing a wood or metal frame that would offer extra support.

Buying the Right Air Conditioner

There are many considerations before buying the unit you need and one of them is having it properly estimate the size of your aircon. Once you have estimated how much air you need or the BTU, start picking a good air conditioner using that estimate.

Spend enough time shopping around online and in local stores to find great prices, but just remember that other considerations are also essential, such as an inverter or smart AC feature and the aircon brands.

Type of properties & Regulation

There are certain regulations that need to follow for an HDB and condominium. The outdoor unit only can be placed in a specific area according to the rule. And HDB aircon installation permits are also required when installing an AC unit in Singapore.

Simply one of the best in town! Professional and prompt services. We have booked their services both for residential and corporate spaces. The team, led by Michael, was really warm to deal with, and they tried to be as transparent as possible in guiding us about the repair they were doing. As a repeat client, I cannot recommend them enough. If you want quick response from the team, you can simply contact them through their website.

Great professional services. We've had bad experiences with professional cleaners and aircon specialists before, so we were naturally wary about this at first. Fortunately, after our third try, we found the professional partner for our home (and even our home office). You can readily sense that they have been doing this for years because of their efficient system, from booking to dispatching. Their aircon specialists are also skilled and I heard from one of the specialists that they are required to renew their license annually. Great thanks and great job!read more

FAQs About Aircon Installation

What are the common mistakes in AC installation?

The common mistakes in AC installation include the following:

- Improper System Size
- Incorrect Air Con Position
- Improperly Insulated
- Improper Thermostat Position
- Poor Quality Of Indoor Air
- Failing To Check For Leaks
- Picking A Wrong Contractor

How much does new air con installation cost in Singapore?

The cost for installing split type air conditioning, which includes the whole unit, can range from $2,000 to more than $5,000, for an average set up. However, the actual price tag will vary a lot based on where you specifically live, the kind of system that you need.

How long will a Singapore air con installation take?

Typically, a split system air con install takes 4 to 8 hours. That will include the time involved in removing your old unit if the replacement of that is involved.

Can you do air con install on your own?

Even with the technical knowledge for AC unit installation, there's a serious risk in the process given all of the various electrical components involved. That, and it also requires nuanced experience in AC matters to make sure you are putting the right unit size in place.

Having said all that, the installation of a window air-con unit can be a rather simply DIY affair. The heavy lifting involved is minimal, and you only need to tighten some screws. Just a token amount of effort can help you cool a room that you find comfort during the long warm season. Many window AC units can even heat a cold or chilly room.

Just remember that split-type condenser units and window AC units need to be only installed using approved methods and locations. If you want air-con installation or replacement in your flat, then you must use installers who have had Building and Construction Authority training.
