The hot climate in Singapore has made air-conditioners a necessity at home. And we know that it is one of the big ticket items, which you have to allocate some (or much) of your renovation budget on.
Sometimes, it's very enticing to choose the aircon contractor that gives you the lowest price. But there are other important factors that you should also take into consideration when you buy air-cons that would help you to save money in the long run.
1. Workmanship for Aircon Installation Aircon workmanship plays a huge part and difference on the durability of your air-cons in the long run. Most aircon buyers would firstly google "best aircon brands" or "cheap aircon". But the workmanship and skilfulness of the aircon installer are equally as important.
The pipes and materials concealed in your ceiling and walls, where major problems can happen there, have to be installed well from the onset to prevent future inconveniences and repair costs. Aircon problems like aircon pipe leak gets even more complicated and expensive to fix, if the concealed pipes run above your built-in wardrobes and cabinets. Aircon pipes do not run as a straight pipe in your ceiling or trunking, bending of aircon pipes is manual work that requires skills and experience.
So, if you are not inclined to compromise on the aesthetics of your home with aircon trunking running all over, you should totally consider choosing the right air-con contractor with quality workmanship. Aircon companies with BizSafe Star and ISO accreditations are likely to be of more quality and reliable.
