They do however advise that it may sometimes be possible to reduce the price and do a better deal for customers. Where multiple units are purchased at once they may offer volume discounts.

Friglec Enterprises offer pricing that is generally on average with standard market pricing. However, it’s important to note that the company are exclusively using a leading brand of a high quality, Daikin, which generally has a higher pricing range. They do not offer price matching nor does the company have a formal financing option. Despite not having the most flexible price options, as a specialist dealer for Daikin they receive the best price from the onset as they deal directly with the manufacturer. Their pricing and cost effectiveness is impressive for a medium-sized company, as its buying power is more limited than some of the other bigger companies.

The staff at both Advanced Air NT and Friglec Enterprises was found to be polite and eager, receiving a rating of 8 out of 10 for customer satisfaction experienced over the phone. Advanced Air NT were rated with a high score of 9 out of 10 for customer satisfaction experienced via email. Comparatively in the email customer service category Friglec Enterprises received 5.5 out of 10 for their response to customer inquiries by email. This is a lower score than our top 5 Darwin-based air conditioning installation companies.

The difference in scores for customer service via email may be attributed to the amount of time each company took to respond. Advanced Air NT were particularly good with correspondence via email, sending follow up emails to enquire if the customer had received the quote, and a further follow up to ask if they wish to proceed with the installation. Advanced Air NT was also found to have very fast response times, responding to requests and sending out quotations generally within a 6-hour time period. In comparison Friglec Enterprises staff members generally responded to an initial enquiry and then generated a quote only after 4 days for each, which is a slow response rate and slower than all of our top 5 air conditioning installation companies. This could be attributed to the medium size of their company. Team members did however provide easy to understand and clear answers, which is helpful for customers.

Friglec Enterprises pride themselves on providing customers with personalised service, delivered through great customer service, providing flexible hours for installations and emergencies. They work with customers all over the Northern Territory, including remote and rural areas.

Advanced Air NT are open on weekdays between 7.30am to 4.30pm and are closed for business on weekends. They are currently looking into financing options for their customers but do not offer these at present. Friglec Enterprises also do not offer financing options.

It should be noted that our Friglec Enterprises review gave this Darwin-based company an above average score of 3.4 out 5 for its overall customer service performance; which is a solid and competitive score.
