Product range

Camray Air recommend that customers install Panasonic air conditioning products. This is because they believe that Panasonic are superior to other brands in terms of their after installation service, whilst offering a high quality product which sits at the top end of the market.

Camray Air also install Daikin and Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning systems and will install without supplying, meaning that if you have a particular product you would like and can personally source, Camray Air will install it for you.

None of our top 5 air conditioning installation Wollongong companies install ducted heating, evaporative cooling or hydronic boiler and steam boilers (with the exception of Wollongong Air Conditioning who do install hydronic boiler but recommend against it). The heat and humidity of the Wollongong region lowers the efficiency of an evaporative cooling system, whilst boiler systems and ducted heating are heating only options which are often not preferable given the Wollongong climate.

  • Alpine Refrigeration and Air Conditioning recommend Toshiba and Carrier products, however they also install Temperzone, LG, Hitachi, Mitsubishi Electric, Daikin, Panasonic, Pioneer and Fujitsu air conditioning solutiongs.
  • ADL Services recommend the installation of Fujitsu products but will also install Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Daikin and Temperzone.
  • Marksmen Refrigeration prefer to supply and install Mitsubishi Industries, but will also install Fujitsu products.
  • Wollongong Air Conditioning recommend the use of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, LG, Panasonic or Daikin air conditioning products and solutions.
