With prices that are generally lower than the market average, affordable installation quotes and cash back options to help the customer with their decision, Camray Air is impressive when it comes to pricing. The Camray Air team are happy to review price-matching enquiries for customers and will also offer volume discounts where multiple units are purchased and installed at once. ADL Services are also open to offering volume discounts, offering a cheaper cost per unit where 3 or more units are installed in the one place, depending on the project and with the stipulation that it would need to run smoothly.
Camray Air will also assist their customers to access Panasonic cash backs at various times, which are usually on offer during the slower winter months. ADL Services do not offer such deals or price matching outright.
Our ADL Services Review team rated the company 7 out of 10 for customer service experience both over the phone, and when provided via email.

In terms of response speed, Camray Air was rated with a generally medium response time generally taking between 24 – 48 hours to respond to initial online enquiries and generally providing a quote within the same time period. This placed them in equal second for responsiveness. ADL Services’ response times were initially slow in responding to our team’s online request for a quote, however this was due to technical difficulties. Once this was discovered ADL Services were very quick to rectify the issue, responding with a personalised quote within a matter of hours. We recommend that customers follow up with the sales team by phone if online requests are not responded to within a couple of business days. ADL Services, acknowledged receipt of our request (once our request was properly located) and responded with a personalised quote within 6 hours.
Both teams employ staff that are friendly, helpful, and adept at answering technical and other questions customers may have with regard to their air conditioning installation needs.
Camray Air is willing to provide rural installations on a case-by-case basis. ADL Services will potentially travel to rural areas but with travel time charged to the customer. To save customers the cost they generally recommend that rural customers organise their installations through more local air conditioning installation companies.
Neither company offers financing options to its customersbut Camray Air do offer a service most others don’t have in the form of a 24-hour breakdown service, offered to their contract clients. This is very convenient for customers should they be experiencing major issues.
With 22 years in the industry, the staff at Camray Air is rated amongst the most experienced air conditioning and installation technicians in the area. Impressively, ADL Services have been around slightly longer since 1991, backed by 27 years of experience and expertise in the industry. Their technicians have the skill and knowledge to deal with a variety of different types of air conditioning system installations.
Both companies offer a 5-year warranty on installation, which is fairly standard for the region. They are able to install a wide range of systems for residential and commercial properties, including apartments, with the exception of evaporative, hydronic and boiler systems. Each has the standard ARC tick of approval, meaning they can handle refrigerants.
