Always Choose A Reputable Aircon Installer. Let me tell you why this is very important.
As a homeowner, all you want is a problem-free daily living. Once a problem crops up at home, you know at least a few hundred dollars would have to fly out of your pocket. One good example is, oiling of your window hinges. Such a small and easy task. Yet many failed to do so causing the hinge to rust, erode and crack in less than 5 years. Cost of replacement, $250 ( must use an approved contractor by HDB to do the job). Oiling once every 2 months over 5 years, less than 1 oil bottle.
So now for your aircon. You’ve paid a few thousand dollars for that 5 ticks aircon. A few thousand dollars isn’t cheap. After 1 year of usage, your aircon starts to condense. Followed by the trunking moulding. After that, you observe some leakages. That’s it.
Now you’ll need to get your regular service personnel to pop by and diagnose the issue. Then he starts telling you to change this and that. Cost? Maybe close to $1000. Is it worth it? To top if off, your aircon's lifespan is also affected.
All these issues could easily be avoided if an experienced and reputable company does the job. Best part is that all of them issue out a warranty. Although they issue out a warranty, the other problem is that whether they honour the warranty issues to you. What’s the difference between a good and a “not so good” company? One use premium materials for everything. Even for insulation, type of trunking, wires, etc.. It is also easier to contact someone from a more reputable company especially if the company has a building that can’t be moved right?
With a really good installation, you can be worry-free until it’s time to actually change your aircon which is probably between 7 - 12 years with proper servicing cycles.
These are big ticket items, so never take your chances. After surveying many places, we found Lifestyle Guru by Natural Cool to be choice for many. Even for commercial aircons. You can see them at every Expo with a robot at their booth. They even have their own building. You can also check out their Facebook Page @lifestyleguru.sg . To top it off, I think they are also the 1st aircon company that converted the traditional aircon sales into an e-commerce business!
How many aircon company does that? Anyway, this is my 2 cents worth of why you should really look for an experienced and reputable aircon company. Good Luck Aircon Shopping!
