STP Services are an experienced, helpful air conditioning installation provider. After finalising our STP Services review, we rated them in our top 5 air conditioning installation companies on the Sunshine Coast.
This was due to a number of factors, including their competitive prices, experienced technicians, high level of customer service, and willingness to install a wide range of products and brands. STP Services are also the only provider in our top 5 who install hydronic boiler systems, making them an excellent starting point if you want to install this product.
Our STP Services review team found they offer competitive prices compared to our other top 5 rated air conditioning installation Sunshine Coast companies. Their focus is on providing clear and competitive quotes upfront, rather than offering deals or promotions. Their helpful staff are happy to talk you through their pricing options, which a subject to an onsite evaluation and quote, provided free of charge.
It should be noted that unlike some other Sunshine Coast air conditioning installation companies, STP Services do not include GST in their prices, and this needs to be factored in by customers.
The graph below shows how our review teams ranked the air conditioning installation companies in our Sunshine Coast-based top 5 in terms of cost effectiveness. Our STP Services review gave this company a strong rating of 4 out of 5 for the very competitive prices it offers, ranking STP Services in equal second place compared to the cost effectiveness results of the other companies in our top 5.
STP Services provide clear and helpful upfront quotes, both online and over the phone. Like many air conditioning installation companies on the Sunshine Coast, these quotes are subject to an onsite inspection of your home or office, which STP provide free of charge. This is standard in the air conditioning industry in the Sunshine Coast, and Australia more generally.
These inspections help them to determine the specific requirements of your premises, and the best solutions to your air conditioning needs. During our STP Services review, we noted that their quotes provided a detailed breakdown of costs and expenses excluding GST. This ensures that customers do not experience any form of shock in relation to price. STP Services do not have hidden costs, all are included in the quote provided to customers.
The same team are happy to help customers decide on suitable options based on their specific needs, which are determined both at the initial call or online enquiry, and clarified after an inspection of the premises.
The following image is of the online enquiry form provided for customers on the STP Services website. Individuals who are interested in this company’s products or services can use this online form as an effective way to communicate with an experienced STP Services representative. This communication can be a request for a personalised quote, or an avenue to ask more general questions – all of which can be included in the “Message” section, shown below. The overall layout of this online form is clear and unembellished and can therefore be completed quickly, promptly establishing a line of communication between potential customers and the STP Services team. Customers simply insert their contact details, as well as their specific quote request/general enquiry, into the form’s allocated spaces and a knowledgeable STP Services representative will be in contact for an obligation-free consultation to discuss their air conditioning needs, provide a quote and organise a free onsite inspection.
Unlike some Sunshine Coast air conditioning installation companies, STP Services do not provide financing options. They prefer to provide simple upfront solutions rather than dealing with third party providers for financing options or other deals. That being said, our STP Services review noted that they are happy to split payments into three installations, spread across the beginning, middle and end of the installation process.
If financing options are important to you, you may wish to consider other air conditioning installation companies on the Sunshine Coast. However, if you’re happy to pay in one installation or spread it out over three payments, STP Services offer very competitive upfront prices.

The reviewer also expresses high customer service satisfaction with the level of professionalism exhibited and assistance provided by the qualified STP Services tradesmen.
When it comes to product range, our STP Services review found they have some different offerings compared to other air conditioning installation Sunshine Coast companies.
Notably, STP Services are the only one of our top 5 air conditioning installation companies on the Sunshine Coast who install hydronic boiler systems. However, it should be noted that although they provide this service, they do recommend against use of this product due to the humidity and overall climate on the Sunshine Coast. During our STP Services review, we noted that hydronic boilers are not a popular air conditioning solution in the Sunshine Coast region generally, for the reasons mentioned above. That being said, if you are particularly keen to install a hydronic boiler, STP Services provide a high quality, competitive service.
They also install a wide range of other air conditioning systems, including:
STP Services install a range of products, although their preferred brand, ActronAir is not widely installed by our top 5 air conditioning installation companies on the Sunshine Coast, making them a good starting place if you have a preference for this brand. They also install many other brands more commonly favoured by other air conditioning installation Sunshine Coast companies, including Daikin, Mitsubishi, Gree, Haier and Hitachi.
The image below displays two leading air conditioning product manufacturers – Haier Air Conditioning and Actron Air. STP Services are agents for these two major air conditioning brands, as Sunshine Coast authorised dealers and warranty representatives for both.
Our STP Services review noted that they have a high level of experience, having been in operation since 2010. They service different building types, including commercial and residential. STP Services also install air conditioning units in apartment buildings, although they require approval from the body corporate before proceeding.
STP Services offer both air conditioning installation and repair, meaning they are able to assist with any issues that might arise further down the track. They also offer 12-month installation warranty, guaranteeing you’ll be covered should any complication arise as a result of the air conditioning installation process.

Specifically, their willingness to install hydronic boilers and their preference for installing ActronAir branded air conditioners sets them apart from other similar providers.
