Hi all
See there are a lot of aircon topics, but cannot find any good references for a Pta(Centurion) installer. The net is like a sticky maze. Lots of companies, but not all so rosy when it comes to reviews.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated!

Crikey what an absolute clusterf..k!
Seems nobody really wants to take my money, and I want to install 2 aircons

Seems par for course is that I have to repeatedly follow up on quotes requested
eg. Ask for a quote on 2 x 9000BTU, X brand
Receive prices on 12000BTU, Y brand
Refer to original request, now receive quote on Z brand

I am still trying though

Quotes would be between 1400 to 1800, right? I think they have one quote assuming standard length of aircon pipe (can't recall how many meters though). We got one installed for 1450 but that was 2 years ago - I reckon prices would have increased now.

What drives me to more drink....

Only 1 quote so far received has a breakdown of all the separate components

The others quote the aircon price and in brackets - installation included - so you never know what the installation cost is

But the average what I could get from some of the websites is about R1 500
