Air-con servicing East Coast

Postby QueenMinnie » Mon, 09 May 2011 3:12 pm

I need to get my air con serviced, but as I've never had it done before, I don't know who is decent and/or cheap, and I don't know what to look for. I don't want to be taken for a ride, and would appreciate any advice/recommendations. Cheers.

Hi there.

Try Alvin at Koolzlink Engineering ( 97432093 ). Recommended by our estate agent and we've used him for a year. He's very good, genuine and not dodgy at all. Roughly $25 a unit (which is the norm) and he's flexible, so the contract could be for, say, 5 units at a time if you have more and don't want all of them done each time.

Cheers
Chris

His prices are a little higher than you have stated. He quoted me $25 each for the 7 internal units = $175 PLUS $50 for each external compressor (3) - it cost $325. My usual guys only charge $25 each for whole thing - so should only have been $125! And he did not do any of the work that they do. He just vacumed out and did not check belts etc. I had a squeaky unit and he said - 'oh LG ...it is supposed to sound like that'! Seriously. And the next day it sounded like a jet engine!

We used Royal Aircon & Vacuum Services last month and they did a good job. They suggest getting units serviced every 3 months. I suppose the charges will depend on how many units you have.

The number is 9162-2862.

Koolslink came back and replaced the motor at a cost of $350. They were very nice but I still can not help feeling ripped off.
