Our Nortan Air Conditioning and Heating review, found the company has a standard and sometimes slightly higher than standard pricing range on their air conditioners and installation services. However our review team acknowledges that the pricing when lined with their quality customer service and workmanship, sets them apart from other companies.

The review team based the pricing on quotes received over the phone or by email from the Nortan team. Customers can request a price quote by phone, email or via one of their online forms. However as with most air conditioning installation companies, it is best to have a free onsite quote conducted as to be more certain of the expected costing and installation requirements, before making a decision.

Nortan does offer a little flexibility in their pricing, with the price matching of competitors’ quotes. Pricing matching will only be considered by the team at Nortan if the two quotes match, in terms of air conditioning models and manufacturers and installation requirements. It is important to remember that any decision regarding price matching is at the discretion of the Nortan management and is considered on a case to case basis. Nortan does not offer further price flexibility via volume discounts or special air conditioning manufacturers’ deals and promotions, which are offered by some of the other Melbourne-based air conditioning companies.

This Melbourne-based air conditioning installation company was found to have standard pricing in comparison to other Melbourne air conditioning installation companies. However Nortan’s price range is still very competitive and solid pricing. Although the company is not the cheapest in the Melbourne market, they are also definitely not the most expensive. Our Nortan review team believes the company’s great and competitive pricing range and as well high quality workmanship and great customer service make them an excellent option for Melbourne customers.
