Air Conditioning Installation
Professional Air Conditioning Installation Services in Echuca and Surrounds
Air conditioning systems are long-term fixtures that need to be installed with care. In Victoria, it is compulsory to employ the services of registered air conditioning contractors in order to comply with Australian Standards and Victorian Building Authority regulations.
At Echuca Refrigeration, our specialist air conditioning installers will install your aircon ensuring that the system works at maximum efficiency. We pride ourselves on not just professional attentive service but also on fast response times. Whether it’s needing a quote for installation or turning up for the job on time, we’ll be there!
Before we install an air conditioning unit, we will need to inspect the area the unit is to be installed in, so we can determine the most appropriate AC installation procedure. This is because different sized spaces require different types of air con systems and installation methods. The placement of your unit and the type of system selected will have a big impact on the performance of your air conditioning.
Once we have made a professional assessment and obtained your consent, our technicians will have your air conditioner installation completed to safe industry approved standards.

If you haven’t already purchased your air conditioner unit, we can help you choose an appropriate system. We can help you compare brands, as well as provide expert advice on the pros and cons of each unit taking into account cost, energy consumption, maintenance and other factors, so that in the long run you benefit the most from an informed decision.
When choosing an air conditioning system you will need to consider not only the room size but also the room layout, ceiling height, the amount of insulation, and whether sunlight could affect the temperature.
What size air conditioner do I need?
The following table is a general guide to the cooling and heating capacities required from an air conditioner based on the size of your room.
|Room Size||Capacity – Cooling (C)/Heating (H)|
|3m x 3m = 9 Sq m||2.5kW (C) / 3.2kW (H)|
|5m x 5m = 25 Sq m||3.5kW (C) / 3.7kW – 4.3kW (H)|
|5.5m x 5.5m = 30 Sq m||3.5kW (C) / 3.7kW (H) – 5kW (C) / 6kW (H)|
|6.3m x 6.3m = 40 Sq m||5kW (C) / 6kW (H) – 6kW (C) / 7.2kW (H)|
|6.7m x 6.7m = 45 Sq m||6kW (C) / 7.2kW (H) – 7.1kW (C) / 8kW (H)|
|7.1m x 7.1m = 50 Sq m||7.1kW (C) / 8kW (H) – 8kW (C) / 9kW (H)|

We have found a reverse cycle split air conditioner installation to be the most popular request for our services in Echuca. These systems keep you cool in summer and warm throughout winter. Inverter air conditioners are energy efficient as they deliver a constant airflow that regulates the temperature better. The latest Smart AC can connect to a network, which enables a mobile app to control its functioning.
As well as quality aircon installation, we also service and repair your existing heating and cooling systems. You can rely on us to take care of all your air conditioning needs.
