Air Conditioning Extra Costs

We have tried to make it as easy as possible to get supply and install pricing to you, but sometimes there are extra costs involved. For example, if you have a double Storey house, we will need to either mount the unit up higher on brackets which is an extra $250 cost, or we could run the ducting down the wall the two storeys down to the ground which is an additional $250. It is a necessary extra cost involved, as it can’t be installed as a simple back to back installation. If your installation is an up and over method, please contact us as we will need to verify the distance the piping run has to be and also the accessibility options involved within your roof space. Please call Snap Air Conditioning and speak to one of our experts to confirm if you are ever unsure.
