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.

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

When it comes to heating and cooling installation in Melbourne, HVAC are four letters that you’re bound to hear time and time again.

If you ask us, these four letters represent the ultimate in home comfort, and are without a doubt the best choice for high-end homes in Melbourne.

Of course, you won’t want to just take our word for it – air conditioning installation is a major decision, and you’ll need to think things through, as well as know what you’re in for if you choose this type of system.

And that goes beyond simply understanding how HVAC systems work.

It’s important that you understand what these systems come with – that means the good, the bad as well as the things you’ll want to keep your eye on.

And that’s why we’re here today: to educate you on the ins and outs of choosing HVAC for ducted heating and cooling in Melbourne!

5 things you might now have known about HVAC heating and cooling

Is heating and cooling maintenance necessary?

Absolutely!

Air conditioning systems are complex devices, with many different moving parts. As such, it’s important that you keep yours well-maintained to avoid problems with these complicated pieces of machinery.

You’d think that this is something that would be pretty self-explanatory.

Unfortunately, while most homeowners are aware of it, a surprising number of them don’t act on it, instead leaving their system to wear out as the years go by.

Make no mistake, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning service is non-negotiable!

And that brings us onto a good follow-up question…

How many years does HVAC last?

While most systems have a prescribed useful life of 15-25 years depending on brand and a number of other factors, with good maintenance, your system may be able to last all the way up to 30 years – not bad at all!

Of course, wear-and-tear aren’t the only things that can limit your system’s useful life.

Just look at how quickly technology is moving around us – buy a new phone for example, and within a year it’ll already be obsolete. While the pace of change in the air conditioning world is slower, it isn’t stagnant.

To avoid this, our team chooses high-quality brands like Daikin ducted heating and cooling and Mitsubishi reverse cycle ducted air conditioning – brands designed to stand the test of time.

Not only are they durable and long-lived, but they also incorporate the latest tech like voice activation and efficient-refrigerants, making them future-proof and giving your home a system that’ll (literally) last decades.

How do I know if my air ducts need to be cleaned?

Ducting is the beating heart of any ducted heating and cooling system in Melbourne

Naturally, you’re going to want to keep these all-important ducts in good condition – and importantly, clean.

On top of helping your system perform better, it also protects you and your family from having to breathe in dust, debris, or pollutants that might be blown out of your ducts.

How often you’ll need to clean depends on air quality, as well as how frequently you use it. As a general rule however, every 3-5 years is a good benchmark.

Once again, this number is just a guideline – if the air quality has visibly decreased or you’re starting to smell mould coming from your ducts, that’s a sign you should book a clean ASAP.

How do I find a leak in my HVAC system? And how do you fix an air duct leak?

Air duct leaks make your system less effective, end of story.

Cool (or warm, if your system is set to heating mode) air is able to escape prematurely, meaning less of it makes it into your living spaces.

Not only that, but it also wastes power, since your system now needs to run for longer to compensate!

Realising you have a leak can be as simple as noticing that the air is coming out warmer than it usually does, or noticing that your system is using more power than it should. Finding said leak is a different story!

Luckily, air conditioning teams like ours have a range of tactics we can use not only to determine whether or you’ve sprung a leak, but exactly where it’s located in your system of ducts.

How do you check airflow in ductwork? And how do I increase the airflow in a room?

Is your airflow feeling a little bit weaker than you’re used to?

It might not necessarily be one of the problems listed above – alternatively, the cause could be something completely innocent (and more importantly, easy to fix).

We’re talking about issues like:

  • Duct grilles becoming misaligned
  • Clogged filters
  • Problems with the blower

These problems aren’t exclusive to ducted HVAC systems, either – we can see this problem pop up in a wall-mounted and ducted split system in Melbourne too.

Luckily, most of these are pretty easy to fix. And if you’re struggling to do it by yourself our team is always available to help!

In the meantime, there are a number of tactics you can use to increase the airflow in your home – for example, if you have ceiling fans, you can use those to help spread the cool air around.

How do I choose a heating and cooling system?

So you’ve decided that ducted reverse cycle air conditioning in Melbourne is the right call for your property. Now for the hard part: choosing the right system for your needs.

Choosing your system is one of the most important decisions you’ll need to make when fitting your home out with a heating or cooling system. Luckily, it’s also one important part that we can help with!

A lot of people assume that their air conditioning installer is just that: an installer. They think that they only turn up on the day, do the job, and that’s it.

You already know that we do post-installation service and repair – is it any surprise that our service also extends long before the big day itself?

In addition to installing your system, our air conditioning team also consults with you in the design and planning phase. That includes evaluating your space, crunching the numbers and helping you choose the most appropriate system.
