Our Degree C review, found the company offers very affordable pricing on both their air conditioning products and installation services. The Degree C review found their pricing to be very competitive, in comparison to other air conditioning installation companies in the Launceston area and the prices were generally lower than standard market prices. As a general recommendation, with most air conditioning installation companies, it is best to have a free onsite quote conducted by the company as a way to be more certain of the expected costing and installation requirements, before making a decision.
Even though the Degree C already has very affordable pricing options in comparison to other Launceston-based air conditioning installation companies, the company is open to further flexibility with their pricing.

The Degree C website does not offer an online quotation or contact form.
