Solaire Connect was established around the year 2000 and employs a small team of highly knowledgeable and competent staff. This company prides itself on installing leading air conditioner brands, like Daikin and their installation team work to the highest standards in the industry. They also believe a successful installation is only a small part of the service and aim to provide a great after sales support system. Part of this great service is that they strive not to be a sales company, where the company is driven by sales and sales staff work on commission. This allows the team to be non-pushy in their responses to customer inquiries and prioritises the customer and their needs, rather than sales targets.
The Solaire Connect review found this reputable company provides services and features, which are common to some of the top 5 Perth-based air conditioning installation companies. The company offers weekend availability for installation services only, as well as affordable and cost effective pricing.
