The system requires regular maintenance to function effectively and efficiently throughout their life span. Neglecting regular servicing can result in reduced performance and increased energy consumption, as well as a higher risk of malfunction.
Regular maintenance is key to ensuring a long life for system. We recommend a General Service annually for all new hydronic and air conditioning systems, and twice annually for older systems.
Yes - hydronic heating radiators and towel rails can be installed in most existing homes. Occasionally, hydronic underfloor heating can also be accommodated, or replaced with other alternatives such as electric under tile heating. For your unique home, please book a quote to discuss your options.
Some quick fixes to try are to first change the battery in your thermostat or controller. If your controller is hand held, ensure you are standing close to your system and that the path between the controller and the system is not obstructed. Press the buttons slowly and deliberately, and avoid button smashing as it can overload the small computer in the controller with commands. If you are still experiencing problems or if your controller is displaying an error code, contact us to book a Diagnostic Service Call.
For most wall hanging units, and for ducted return air, you are generally able to check and clean the filters yourself. It is recommended you clean your filters after heavy usage (such as a hot summer!) and at least once annually. Our technicians will also clean your filters for you as part of your yearly general service.
Our general service range is within a 15-20km radius from South Melbourne. We do work on projects outside of this range, including rural Victoria, when the project is large, boutique, or combines both hydronic heating and air conditioning.
Yes, quotes for new installations and changeovers are always free and generally take about 15 minutes for a site visit. Quotes for repairs are not free. Repair jobs are booked under a Service/Diagnostic Call and you will be charged for a technician call out and labour to diagnose the problem. If your system is over 10 years old it is generally worth considering a quote for replacement.
A very professional outfit. Zac is hands on, highly knowledgeable and provides great customer service. They installed a ducted system with multiple zoning. Happily came back a couple of times to make a minor change and help me understand the systems full functionality, which is excellent. They may not be the cheapest but you get what you pay for and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Highly recommended.
I had a very old Daikin multi system at my place with 4 inside units, that died on me after over 20 years. The Arctic team were reasonably quick to respond and even came to inspect the existing system.Zak then walked me thru the proposed solutions and worked with me to minimise additional work at my place.Once the scope of work was agreed, Zak and team project managed the installation, electrician and the paint job for me.Nathan and Luke were professionals, did their work efficiently and ensured the area was left clean every night. The final product was as I expected. I would definitely recommend Zak to anyone looking to install an AC.
I would like to thank you and your team for being so professional, committed and customer oriented.In particular with Annie. Her communication is excellent with a clear and honest response. She also responds to our calls and emails promptly. 5 ***** for you Annie!We initially had an issue with an old unit that was not working properly. As a result of the diagnosis of the unit in the report in the Invoice, I spoke with Annie to get some more clarification as we were quite indecisive if we should replace with a new unit for long term benefits.As a result of her clear and honest communication, she is one of the reasons we chose your company to install a new Daikin heating and cooling unit although we know your company's quote is not the cheapest but trust will provide a very good and professional service.Your crew did a very good job in installing the new unit and everything is working fine.We will certainly be happy to recommend it to all our friends.Kind regards,Meiliana
David SpryZak and the team are very professional and delivered a very high quality service. The guys were very efficient and timeliness was second to none. Well done guys and would recommend Arctic to anyone with an airconditioner issue.
Back in December 2022, Daikin HO recommended that my husband and I choose a Daikin dealership close to our home to obtain a replacement Daikin remote controller that had broken.Will answered our first phone call to Arctic Melbourne. He went beyond the call of duty trying to source a remote controller from a variety of outlets. The repaired or new remote controller would need to work with our 23 year old Daikin AC unit. Eventually, after much effort, Will very reluctantly advised us that our AC was too old to be compatible with a new remote controller. Additionally, there were no ‘old’ remote controllers available for sale as our AC unit was indeed very 'old'.In January 2023, my husband and I decided to ‘bite the bullet’ and buy a new AC. It was obvious that we would ask Arctic Melbourne to supply and install, given their excellent customer service.In mid January CEO Zac, provided his considerable expertise, explaining the advances in the equipment over the last 20 plus years. We were impressed with the speed and efficiency of Arctic’s office in providing the quotation that same day. Two weeks later, as promised, Technicians Luke and Anthony arrived to install the new equipment. They are both skilled and experienced professionals and thoroughly delightful human beings. Their dedication to make sure the job was completed and tested was fantastic.We have no hesitation in recommending Arctic Melbourne. Regards, Valda and Guy.
The team at Arctic were superb in finding the right solution for our hydronic heating and air conditioning needs and then managing the installation process. We could not speak more highly of the Zac’s team
I empolyed Arctic to completely remove our old underfloor ducted heating and in ceiling evaporative cooling and replace with a new single system so needless to say a complex project. Zak and his team measured each room and applied the technical craft to design and size the right heating and cooling load for our house. This part alone is specialised and needs to be right. Zak took the time needed to answer all of my queries before I decided to proceed. The guys turned up as planned. I even received a text to say there are running 15mins late. The work was done perfectly and respected my family members at home during works and made sure we were always happy. The end result is faultless and I highly recommend them to others.
Recommended for innovative solutions and professional and friendly installers. Zak listened to our requirements and quoted a solution to meet our needs. The team of installers were courteous, friendly, professional and tidied up after themselves. Would engage Arctic again.
Central Heating - Had my 40-year-old ducts replaced. Very hard job as the house is very low to the ground. Arctic Team were fabulous. Excellent work completed, the site was cleaned up and a very happy customer. The heating is now working more efficiently! Would highly recommend Arctic Melbourne for any heating or cooling. Thank you!
The people at Arctic are great people. Not only did top quality tradesmen install a top quality air conditioner, I was the beneficiary of people who cared. To get my unit installed, I had to deal with the Body Corporate from hell. And Zac (the boss) was so patient, helpful and understanding he earned a sainthood. This is one of the finest companies I have dealt with.
Zak and his team were awesome. Super clear on communication and their input on how best to install the system in our house was great.Installation was quick, clean and professional. They were very supportive on the setup of the system walking us through everything we could adjust.Definitely recommend.
Zak and Raelene took the time to consult with us and design the perfect system for our needs; great quality and can even be operated remotely! Coming home on a hot day has never been so refreshing, it feels like we're living in a whole new house. In summary, it was an absolute pleasure working with Zak and his team and we could not be happier.
The Arctic team were faultless from on the site quote and discussion of needs to replacement of our old twin units with a single unit, installation of new split systems and clean up once the job was done. Zac, Adrian & the team kept us informed of progress throughout the process and any potential issues. There were no 'surprises' and the entire replacement/install competed within 2 days on time and to requirements. I was impressed with their professionalism, work ethic and most importantly know how. Recommended
The technician arrived promptly as scheduled. He was thorough in his assessment and fixed issue as needed. I would highly recommend Arctic Melbourne to anyone requiring professional and prompt service.
It was pleasure to deal with Zak and the team when arranging to research a Daikin R/C and have it installed. All calls and emails were responded to promptly pre-installation day. Neil and Luke arrived on time, were most professional and explained everything fully. They were respectful at all times in the house, moving furniture etc. I have no hesitation in recommending Arctic!
The team at Arctic were experienced and knowledgeable. They provided an effective solution to our aircon needs and their skill at installation was extremely welcome with work carried out fairly quickly and smoothly.
I found Zac and his team very efficient, on time and they knew their stuff. All issues were addressed on time and in a very professional manner. Great feedback during the process. His follow up service is excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Arctic Melbourne
Prompt service and immaculate installation of a split unit. Amidst the lockdown restrictions, Zak and his team managed to get a virtual inspection of the place, and we managed to get the aircon replaced and installed the moment the restrictions were lifted! Thanks again for such professionalism in your service!
We contracted Arctic Melbourne to install a couple of Daikin multi-split systems in two stages. They installed the compressors and several wall units in September prior to commencing work on our renovations, then returned in June to complete the second half of the job. Arctic were friendly, professional, punctual and responsive to any questions or issues. From the initial quote/design with Zak through to the install with Dimitri and crew, Arctic were a pleasure to deal with. Since completing the installation we have asked for advice or assistance with a few minor issues and Arctic have been knowledgeable and helpful. We would happily recommend Arctic Melbourne to friends and family and would seek to use them in future.
The guys were responsive and flexible in finding the right solution and prompt and efficient during the installation. We are now cosy in a Melbourne winter and are looking forward to being comfortable throughout the year. We highly recommend the Arctic team.
A very big THANK YOU to Zak and his team at Arctic! Our old hydronic boiler broke down on Thursday and Arctic went out of their way to instal a new one by the following Monday so we are toastie warm again 🙏 I’ve used their services previously to instal reverse cycle air con and upgrade my hydronic heating. We have been super happy with their service and easy going manner. I wouldn’t use anyone else and happily recommend them for all your heating and/or cooling needs.
The guys at Arctic are true professionals, and deliver great quality work. They are direct and honest, which is helpful to us given the work was being done amidst a bigger home renovation. Thanks Zac and Jeremy and team!
During this tough time of isolation and distancing its tough to find quality professionals to do work for you, especially at home. The team at Arctic are an antidote to all that working to a very high professional level, using PPE to protect both them and the homeowner from all the issues we face today. I cannot recommend them highly enough they delivered on all fronts plus being great value for money and very friendly to boot. If you want great work and you need a service or a new system for your house and home, Just call the team at Arctic.
The guys at Arctic Air were great. Good, competitive prices and quality equipment but most pleasing if all was their communication. We stuffed them around a little with access to the property but nothing was a problem for them and they were able to get the job done on time. I’d have no problem recommendations them if you’re looking to install aircon
Adding an air-conditioning for high-rise apartment is a tedious job. A lot of companies don't bother to offer the service. Finally Arctic Melbourne has my job done. They offer a great service, thanks very much to all members of service team.
Couldn’t recommend Zak highly enough. I discovered Zak after being delayed by 6 weeks by one bayside’s big hvac companies. Zak moved heaven and earth to install before Christmas a year ago to enable my build to continue and complete on time. Hydronic and VRV AC systems are rocking and his price was competitive.
It was a pleasure to work with Arctic Melbourne. They were on time and worked very efficiently. They were prepared and able to take on the advice of my neighbour who has fitted Daikins to his own unit which is a replica of mine. It did save them all time too!
Excellent advice and design of air conditioning system that met our particular needs. Prompt installation with no fuss. Friendly tradesmen who left no mess. On time each day and full completion as promised. Serviced our hydronic system at the same time. Could not wish for anything better. Thank you Zac and your great team.
When you think air con please make sure that you use a reputable and capable organisation such as Arctic. They have a great team of technicians who are friendly and cheerful, who know what they're doing, take pride in their job, turn up when they say and make sure that you're happy with their work.Arctic's knowledge and advice is first class and you can trust their judgement and suggestions to add value to your job.Arctic not only provided us with a great reverse cycle system for our unit but also bailed me out when another company, Professional Heating and Cooling, stuffed us around and left us with an incomplete and bodgie job. Arctic came in and did the whole job properly and efficiently, including rectifying the previous works, and also improving the layout of our system. We are delighted with the new system and we're well prepared for any weather conditions 👌
The team at Arctic we’re fantastic from the very start. Their initial contact was speedy, and Kieran was really friendly. A date for the quote was locked in and completed on time (the guys were early even!).The installation was quick and professionally completed; the team were all really lovely people and kept us informed of what was happening each step of the way.Almost two months after the installation we have not had any issues with the product. Everything about this company is quality. We could not be happier with the result.Would recommend Arctic Melbourne to anyone!
Very prompt service - booked in quickly and technician turned up on time. Technician explained all aspects of the service and seemed to do a thorough job, including tidying up afterwards. Would definitely use Arctic again.
When I first rang the Arctic office to have someone service my air-conditioner ahead of summer, the team got back to me straight away with dates and times.I had Dimitri attend my apartment to service my air conditioner. From the start to finish he was fantastic, kept me updated with what time he would arrive and how long he would be there for.He cleaned up once finished.Great experience dealing with Dimitri and the whole team at Arctic from start to finish
Very Good serviceOverall, I am very happy with the service. The staff come to install the A/C units are very friendly and cooperative, willing to make efforts to satisfy the specific needs of the our family. My family are happy to give you a 4 star. Well done!!!
I needed my air conditioner fixed n was given Dimitri’s name n he arrived on the day n time he said he would be there! He was very professional n talked me through with a rough idea of what needed to be done n when finished cleaned n tidied up so I will be definitely letting my friends know n thank you once again !
Delighted. Having dealt with a number of tradies throughout our recent renovation we couldn’t be more delighted with the service we received from Arctic. From start to finish, the team at Arctic couldn’t do enough for us and did it with a smile on their face. Big thank you to everyone. Bring on the heat so we can use our new wonderful A/C.
Zac responded within seconds to my text enquiry and was onsite within 2 hours to fix our heating. He explained everything and even sent photos showing exactly was repaired. Refreshing to have such focus on customer service.
Had a technician come to my house today. His name was Dimitri and was very knowledgeable about my new air conditioner that was installed. Very friendly, took his boots off & cleaned up after he was finished. I would highly recommend Dimitri from Arctic.
Great service from getting the quote, booking the installation and the installation itself. Very informative and friendly at all times. They also came back to change something I wasn’t 100% sure about, without a fee. Would recommend them to others.
I had Artctic install a split system aircon in my apartment, an exterior unit and two ventilation “heads” in the top storey bedrooms. The job went really well, and we are very satisfied.Things that we appreciated:Selecting the right equipment for our installation, correctly sized.Tradesmen who attend site when they say they will; no hanging around waiting for people to show up.Competitive pricing and a quick quotation.Tradesmen who clean up their mess before they leave.I would highly recommend Arctic.
Great experience dealing with the guys at Arctic from start to finish. Good advice on best product to use in my apartment, very tidy with the install and great after sales service. Plus l even found an electrician and plasterer through them. Excellent job well done and highly recommend.
The staff were very friendly, reliable and caring. My old split system had broken down in this cold winter and I was very impressed by the fact that Zak the director serviced my call promptly. Arctic’s work in installing the new system was second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending Arctic for a first-rate quality job.
