Covid-19 update

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted how we interact with one another. Installers in Adelaide are undertaking practices to protect the health of customers and technicians and reduce the chances of Covid-19 transmission.

We checked in with our top-rated installers and found that the top installers are taking steps to act compatibly with guidance from the federal and state governments:

They can work from floor plans and still also come out on site to quote if that’s OK with their customers. Their team has had flu shots and they are practicing distancing and hygiene, including sanitising tools.
  • Scotts Air technicians do what is required to keep their customers safe, from personal protective equipment to social distancing as much as possible.
  • Rite Price technicians are trained in Covid-19 practice and use PPE. They aim to reduce contact as much as possible and will not send out anyone who might be ill. They ask customers to inform them if anyone on the site they are visiting might be sick or in isolation.
  • Glenelg Air are still operating as usual but with more caution. They are hand washing, social distancing, using masks where possible.
  • Climat technicians are washing hands with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds before and after meeting and maintaining a safe physical distance of 1.5m apart. Our usual handshake greeting is temporarily on hold. Equipment use onsite will be wiped down before and after / site visits. Technicians will wear (P2) mask (or other) and rubber gloves; staff are also provided with anti-bacterial spray.

Heating options

The Compare Air Conditioning Team put together a quick guide of heating options provided by the top air conditioning installation companies in the Adelaide area. Due to Adelaide having warm, sunny weather and low-humidity year-round climate, many of the companies recommended a heating option that also included a cooling feature as well.

Morphett Air

Morphett Air offers split system heating and ducted heating systems for residential and commercial customers.  The company recommends a ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system as the best heating option for Adelaide customers. The benefit of the reverse cycle ducted system is that it also provides cooling, which suits the Adelaide weather, whilst providing stable and constant air conditioning. The company’s recommended brand for ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is Rinnai, as they describe it as being great value for money and reliable brand.

For the heating of smaller spaces and rooms, the Morphett Air team recommends installing single or multi-system reverse cycle split systems, with Daikin being the preferred brand.

Scotts Air

Scotts Air has several heating solutions for customers including ducted reverse cycle units, ducted gas heating and reverse cycle split system air conditioning.

95% of the company’s sales for new constructions and renovations are for ducted reverse cycle air conditioning systems. A ducted reverse cycle system has the advantage of providing all over heating in winter and refrigerated cooling in summer, all from the same system. Scotts Air prefers and recommends Rinnai ducted reverse cycle units to heat and cool a customer’s home, due to its value for money and stable and constant air conditioning. They do offer other quality air conditioning brands such as Daikin and Panasonic, however these brands carry a higher price range than Rinnai.

The Scotts Air team also can install ducted gas heating systems, however they believe that gas heating can cost the same amount as using an electric system to heat a home. The team also can install reverse cycle split systems or multi split systems, however advise that depending on the number of split systems needed, the cost may be similar to installing a ducted system.

Rite Price Heating and Cooling

Rite Price heating and Cooling offers ducted heating (Braemar) and ducted gas heating, ducted reserve cycle heating (Toshiba, Mistubishi Electric, Carrier, Actron and Braemar) and split systems (Toshiba, Mitsubishi Electric, Carrier and Braemar). They also can install Braemar gas wall furnaces and wood heaters.

The Rite Price Heating and Cooling team recommends a ducted heating system, which can be either powered by gas or electricity, as their best heating option for Adelaide customers. Their preferred brand for ducted heating is Braemar, as they believe it is a superior choice based on its value for money and reliability.

For Adelaide customers who are looking for both a heating and cooling option, the Rite Price Heating and Cooling team recommend a ducted reverse cycle system from Mitsubishi Electric.

Gleneg Air

Glenelg Air offers only Daikin heating options to their customers, which includes ducted reserves cycle air conditioners and splits systems. They also have Daikin VRV (variable refrigerant volume) systems, which are quiet and discreet multi-split type air conditioners, which are specially designed for commercial buildings.

The team strives to understand the needs of customers and deliver the best heating solutions for their individual customer needs. Their preferred heating option is a Daikin ducted reverse cycle air conditioner, which provides whole house heating and cooling coverage and discreet outlets. For customers on a tighter budget, their range of Daikin wall split systems are the perfect heating solution and the team can offer a range of great value quality systems in a variety of configurations.

Climat

Climat’s heating options offered by the company include Rinnai gas space and fires, ducted gas heating, reverse cycle split systems and ducted reserve cycle air conditioning systems.

The Climat team believe a ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system is best suited to the Adelaide climate, as it provides both heating and cooling. A ducted system also has fixed stable coverage all over the house and does not blow air like split systems. They recommend Rinnai as they believe that it is an effective and value for money brand option. For customers looking for leading brands, the Climat team recommends Mitsubishi Electric and Daikin ducted air conditioning units, which generally carry a higher price tag.
