Alpha Air put a split system into my older style 2nd level apartment in Elwood. A more complicated process than many other properties. They were prompt , thorough & flexible about the upfront deposit. The tradies who installed the unit were respectful, friendly & did a great job. They even sent someone back to the property (at my request) free of charge, to help me set up the WiFi control system. I’d definitely recommend Alpha Air Heating & Cooling.

We have just had AlphaAir helping us with a new ducted reverse cycle system for our home- they were such a brilliant team, starting with Matt, Darren, Locky and also Daniel & the other person that helped installing the unit onsite. They were very accommodating despite their busy schedules, had been prompt and professional with answering all questions we have asked in the process. We do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to install/update their heating & cooling systems. Thanks guys :)

Couldn’t speak more highly of the team- Matt who organised a last minute install after another company mishap, full explanation and application for for gov rebates which others didn’t, so saving me hundreds. Daniel, Dylan, Matt, amazing service and craftsmanship start to finish. Every step of the install Daniel took the time to show and explain where he would be placing units and made sure I was satisfied. Was professional and cleaned up the site after checking multiple times. Walk through at the conclusion for any questions and showed me his work. I absolutely recommend to anyone looking for heating and cooling. 10 stars.

Alpha Air installed our electric reverse cycle ducted air conditioning and heating system. Alpha is a family run business and provided personal and professional service throughout all stages of the process. Also, their price was competitive and the installation was completed on schedule. I would highly recommend Alpha Air for their expertise, customer service and their friendly and extremely competent staff. Daryl Gilbert

I requested a quote from Alpha a little while back and was told that the installation would be straightforward and a 'good deal'. When i received the quote, i was shocked that the pricing was 60-70%+ or more higher than market value of the units plus a reasonable install fee, so of course I let it go. I was continually contacted to take up the offer, but I ignored. When i initially submitted this review, i was immediately harassed, phone called repeatedly about this feedback, basically telling me / threatening me to remove the feedback. The owner is a charlatan looking to take people for a ride and is also dishonest. Be wary.

We had a great experience working with Alpha Air. The team were fast to respond to my enquiry, especially in the middle of summer. They provided competitive quotes/prices both for the installation and our preferred product (Split System Air conditioning unit). Installation was quick and easy to organise.

heating and cooling installation in Melbourne

Every homeowner looks for effective, reliable and high-quality heating and cooling installation in Melbourne.

But having a heating and cooling system is only one side of the story.

You may also need to look for a certified and licensed HVAC contractor in Melbourne who knows every system and can provide you with quality installation!

Heating and cooling installation means a lot of work, not to mention the complications that go with it. This is why you need expert heating and cooling contractors with basic knowledge and experience in HVAC installations, repairs, and even replacements.

So, with all the available teams around Melbourne, how are you supposed to find a heating and cooling expert who is reliable, certified and a specialist in their trade?

How do I choose a good HVAC contractor?

Not all HVAC contractors are the same.

You need to look for a team that you can trust throughout the process and can guarantee you high-quality workmanship.

After all, choosing a hassle-free installation right from the start can also help reduce the chances of having to spend on costly repairs and deal with countless headaches associated with unprofessional work.

So, how do you decide when choosing the right HVAC contractor for your home or commercial space?

Ask for certifications and check their license

An air conditioner installer in Australia needs to be a licensed professional to operate. Alpha Air, for example, are members of the following institutions:

  • Master Plumbers
  • ARCTICK
  • VBA

Can a homeowner install HVAC?

You may be tempted to do DIY installation of your HVAC system; however, there will always be risks involved. Additionally, and most importantly, you may need to engage an HVAC professional to do the work for you as required by Australian working standards.

Such workers are required to work legally and follow mandated standards regarding air conditioner repairs and installation.

For example, your licensed HVAC contractor may need to hold a Refrigerant Handling License issued by The Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC).

For additional information about this, you may need to check the online license check facility at www.lookforthetick.com.au to see if your hired HVAC contractor is certified and a licensed professional.

When you choose a certified, expert HVAC contractor, you are guaranteed that your installation will:

  • Be installed properly in the right location
  • Have a valid service warranty
  • Result in a system that operates efficiently and safely
  • Be properly and safely wired

Ask for referrals

Don’t be fooled by cheap quotes.

When choosing a reliable air conditioner installer, it is best to search for the company online, look for all their media platforms, ask questions, and importantly, find out what other people have to say about them.

Doing this will give you an idea of how they’ve worked in the past and what projects they have successfully completed.

A good and reputable HVAC contractor will always provide you with reliable references and a strong track record to tell you about their previous happy customers.

There are a lot of ways to find out what previous clients have to say about HVAC contractors, they can be by:

  • Word of mouth
  • Website/ Google reviews
  • The local community

Make sure that when you do your research, you’ll choose to hire a contractor that has a credible reputation in handling all types of air conditioning installation.

Choose a guaranteed warranty

What should you do if your HVAC system gets damaged or needs repairs? Does your HVAC contractor offer a warranty policy without adding on extra cost?

Before choosing your HVAC team, ensure you find out what kinds of heating and cooling service and repairs they can offer, in addition to installation. You may also need to clarify if the repairs involved in the contract won’t void your system’s warranty as well.

It might also be good to check what brands they usually service so you’ll know from these if they maintain the quality of service and repairs up to their standard, such as Braemar heating and cooling, Mitsubishi Electric, and Daikin.

Check their service brands

Speaking of brands, you may need to check their brand catalogue when choosing a ducted heating and cooling system.

You may need to choose a reliable brand when it comes to ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling and you may need to further seek advice from your HVAC contractor on which is best for your home, especially when it comes to:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Australian-based parts and support
  • Warranty policies
  • Features and benefits

What should I look for in a HVAC quote

Before installing your system, you should be able to receive a formal contract and quote summarising the work provided by the HVAC installer.

Make sure that everything is well-documented and written on paper with a compliance certificate and maintenance guarantee.

Always ask if extra costs are included, especially when heating and cooling installation emergencies happen by chance.

You may need to check the following information enumerated in the quotation to better compare with the others:

  • Brand name, model number, and energy-efficiency rating
  • Payment terms and conditions
  • Service warranty
  • Value-added services or equipment
