Our Friglec Enterprises review team rated the company 3.5 out of 5 stars, which is a strong and competitive rating in comparison to other Darwin-based air conditioning installation companies. This overall rating places Friglec Enterprises just outside of the top 5 best air conditioning installation companies in Wollongong.

Operating since 2004, Friglec Enterprises is a medium-sized business operation, with over 70 years combined industry experience just from the two directors of the company alone. The company is a family owned and operated business employing a small team of local technicians and maintenance contractors in Darwin, who are fully trained to repair, service and install all types of Daikin air conditioning products.

Friglec Enterprises is centrally based in Winnellie, a suburb of Darwin, with the company servicing the not only the Darwin area, but also Palmerston and throughout the Northern Territory itself.

Our Friglec Enterprises review team found the company offers a range of great features like flexible service hours, which reflects the company’s understanding of the importance to have customers air conditioning needs sorted out promptly and efficiently. Flexiblity with service hours allows the company to respond to any special requirements or issues that may come up, such as emergency repairs.

With these amazing qualities Friglec Enterprises is a great choice for Wollongong customers who are looking for solid and reputable air conditioning installation companies.

Our Friglec Enterprises review however also found that the company have slow responses times in relation to email correspondence. Friglec Enterprises also does not have the most flexible pricing options, as the company does not offer price matching of competitor’s quotes, their own special deals and promotions and volume discounts for customers buying multiple units. The company will pass on details of any Daikin manufacturers promotions at the time of quoting. The company also does not offer a finance option to its customers, however this is a common feature amongst air conditioning installation companies in the Darwin area. The company only supplies, installs and repairs one type of air conditioners brand only, which may not be suitable for those customers looking for a range of choice and types of air conditioning products.
Friglec Enterprises also has a great online history of reviews from past customers, both on Facebook and Local Search. The online customer testimonials reflect experiences of a high standard of service and workmanship performed by the Friglec Enterprises. It is important to note however that Friglec Enterprises does not have as many online customer reviews when compared to other Darwin-based air conditioning installation companies.

Price

Our Friglec Enterprises review found this Darwin-based air conditioning installation company to offer average and comparative prices on the products and services they provide. Their pricing rates on installation of air conditioning units are generally on average with standard market pricing. However, when considering Friglec Enterprises‘s pricing, it’s important to note the brand the company is using a leading brand of a high quality, Daikin, which is generally has a higher pricing range than other cheaper brands of manufacturers products.

Our Friglec Enterprises review found that the company does not offer price matching nor does the company have a formal financing option. With price matching, Friglec Enterprises staff believes that competitors’ cheaper quotes may be indicative of a poorer quality of labour or service, which is not consistent with the service provided by Friglec Enterprises and therefore cannot be matched. As there is no formal financing plan, all customer accounts needs to be finalised before work commences, this is similar practise to most air conditioning installation companies in Darwin.

Even though Friglec Enterprises does not have the most flexible pricing options, they are a specialist dealer for Daikin and receive the best price from the onset as they deal directly with Daikin. It’s actual pricing and cost effectiveness is also impressive for a medium-sized company, as its buying power is more limited than some of the other bigger Darwin -based air conditioning installation companies.
