On par in terms of pricing, Advanced Air NT and HME Air Conditioning & Electrical Serviceswere rated 4 out of 5 by our Advanced Air NT Review team, ranking them in equal second place in comparison to their competitors in our top 5 recommended companies for the region. These prices fall around the medium range for the Darwin area but both offer different discounts, which may add value in terms of cost-effectiveness.

It should be noted that HME Air Conditioning charges customers for an on-site inspection where Advanced Air NT do not, and the later are clear about any unforseen costs, which are included on their detailed quotes.

Although Advanced Air NT does not generally offer price matching, as they attempt to provide the best and lowest prices they can offer, they may sometimes be able to reduce the price in order to give their customers a better deal. HME Air Conditioning are willing to price match, but only Advanced Air NT will offer volume discounts to customers where multiple units are purchased at once.

With already competitive prices Advanced Air NT and HME Air Conditioning do not offer manufacturer deals and cash back offers. HME Air Conditioning has a longer length of warranty, which will save customers money if things go wrong in the first 10 years.

Despite their lack of discounts both strive to offer their customers the best prices they can and do quite well in terms of cost-effectiveness when compared to the rest of the Darwin market.
