How The Split System Installation Process Works

After we have loaded the work vans with your brand new split system air conditioner and we’re on the way, we will send you a text message so that you are kept up to date of our arrival time.


Text Message On Approach from Ready Electrical and Air Conditioning

When one of our technicians arrive they will politely introduce themselves and re-confirm the job with you so that everyone is on the same page.

In particular, the locations of the indoor split system head unit and the outdoor compressor unit. These are the main two components of the installation and govern the piping, electricity and water services.

You’ll know when we have arrived when you see this out your window…

Starting the Indoor Split System Installation

Once everything has been confirmed we start by removing furniture and placing drop sheets on the ground to catch dust and debris. Next, we screwing the mounting bracket for the indoor unit to the agreed position. Then we drill a hole in the wall to get the insulated piping, waste water and electrical cables outside. This is where the loud noises will occur, especially in double brick houses and most apartments.

Outdoor Split System Installation

Once the indoor unit is secured on the wall we move outside to the outdoor unit.

We start working on the refrigerant insulated piping, waste water and bringing in electricity from the switchboard or a local power point.

The commissioning of the outdoor unit begins with connecting the refrigerant piping. This step is extremely important to ensure no leaks.

Next we move onto waste water and power connections. This is where being dual trade qualified split system air conditioning installer and a licensed electrician matters.

Once we have connected the power we connect the pump vacuum and compression gauges to release the refrigerant gas. We use our pressure gauges to ensure the unit reaches the correct pressure and that there are no leaks.

To keep these services discreet, we encapsulate them inside Colorbond trunking. The trunking comes in multiple colours and we colour match it to your existing outdoor facade or guttering depending on your preference.

When it comes to the electricity, we connect the power source to an isolator switch as per Australian standards. This allows our technician to switch off all power to the indoor and outdoor unit when servicing or repairing the unit. Safety first!

Completing The Split System Installation & Cleaning Up

After we have completed the connection of the outdoor unit we clean up after ourselves, vacuum up debris and replace the furniture where we found it.  We treat your home with respect and leave it as we found it – as though we were never there.

We also take rubbish with us including all the packaging materials your new unit comes in. If we performed a replacement spilt system installation we even take the old unit with us at no extra charge.

    Very happy with the great work from the whole team at Ready Electrical! My split system was in desperate need of a clean and Greg was able to send a team out to my place the very next day. The guys did a fantastic job making my aircon look and function as if it was brand new, and they were also so thorough at keeping the space clean with lots of drop sheets / tarps. Thank you for the great work...

    Greg & all his team provided us with an excellent service to install a new ducted aircon system a couple of weeks ago. There was great communication throughout the quoting process and the install was seamless with the team leaving the house very tidy. We needed a slight tweak to the system after using it for a few days and it was sorted out straight away with great efficiency. Highly recommended.

    I could not fault Ready Electrical and Air Conditioning. I have neglected my split system for over three years and yesterday it started leaking. Found Ready on Google this morning and from the first phone call, the job was completed in around three hours. Technician was friendly, clean, and he took the time to show me how to clean it every three months - not years. I would use them again.
