Degree C will generally offer lower installation prices than the standard industry installation costs, and also provide quote information with a variety of price ranges for their products and services, giving the customer different options for varying budgets. Degree C does not, however, generally include GST in their prices, leaving the customer to calculate the overall price for themselves.
In terms of discounts, both these companies are not very flexible and do not offer promotions or price matching. Degree C, however, offer volume discounts to customers where multiple systems are purchased at the one time. It’s also important to note that when considering Superheat pricing that they are mainly dealing with commercial clients and the pricing range and style is different for each client, which may indicate the reason for their lack of discount options.
When delivering customer service by phone Superheat received a score of 6 out of 10, which is still a competitive rating for the Hobart market. In the email category Superheat also received 6 out of 10 for their response to customer inquiries. They have a respectable initial response time when responding to a query, within 6 – 24 hours. Whereas sending the quote takes double that time and will usually arrive within 2 to 4 days.

In the delivery of customer service, our review team found that both teams were helpful and polite, as well as being experienced and knowledgeable. Team members displayed competency in answering questions and in providing easy to understand and clear answers adapted to the customer’s requirements. Both companies also provide a free on-site quote, which is generally the most accurate way of discovering how much the installation may cost. Degree C can also provide fully digital quotes where a floor plan is provided.
The Superheat team offer a personalised service that involves individual evaluations of each customer and their needs. They then tailor a custom designed solution to meet those needs which means the system will be effective and should not waste any energy while still providing a high amount of comfort.
In terms of financing Degree C do not provide these options to customers and prefer upfront payment for their air conditioning installation work and products. Superheat also has no formal financing option, with the full amount needing to be settled soon after installation or service. This is practise is common to most Hobart-based air conditioning companies.
