It’s worth noting that Deep Blue Air Conditioning’s quotes were not only often equal to, but also below market average on occasion. This may explain why they do not offer volume discounts where Acclaim Air Conditioning will consider doing so at the discretion of the sales person and depending on the job. Also, Acclaim Air Conditioning can also authorise extra incentives, which would save customers on installation costs, if multiple jobs were completed in one day.

Acclaim Air Conditioning don’t normally offer price matching, but are willing to consider it if there is a small price difference, usually within or below a $500 bracket. Deep Blue Air Conditioning will consider price matching, but when the match is with a truly like-for-like installation and precise model.
