Important factors that determine the price

There are several factors that influence the price of air conditioning installation. The above prices can therefore fluctuate greatly. Knowing the factors makes it easier to get a clear idea of the exact cost. Therefore, be sure to go through the most important factors that determine the price, which you will find below!

1. The size of the room

The exact cost of an air-conditioning system depends mainly on the size of the room. You need to determine the amount of power required before you can choose the right device. A more powerful unit costs a lot more than a simple model. By having a power calculation made, you can avoid spending more money unnecessarily.

2. The brand you choose

Air conditioners are available in different brands. It goes without saying that the better brands, such as LG and Daikin will cost you more. However, it is important to know that the warranty for these devices is usually better and that it is also easier to find spare parts for them.

Moreover, a good quality air conditioner lasts much longer. To give you an idea of the price difference: a Maxicool, Eurom or Gree unit will cost between €950 and €1,800, and if you choose a similar unit from Panasonic, Daikin, LG or Mitshubishi, it will cost between €1,100 and €2,450.

3. Extra options

Some air conditioners have extra options. These will obviously cost you more. For example, if you want an air conditioner that you can control via an app, you will have to pay between 90 and 190 euros.

Additional indoor units for heating multiple rooms will cost between 600 and 810 euros each. For a nicer design, you also pay a few hundred euros more. Would you also like a maintenance contract? Then you will pay an average of 120 euros per year.

Which air conditioner is best for you?

Before you find out everything about air conditioning installation costs, it's good to know which type is best for you. With the information below, you're sure to find the right air conditioner for you!


Which room do you want to cool?

Want to buy an air conditioner? Then take into account the room you want to use it for. For example, if you want to install an air conditioner in your bedroom or office, it's important that you don't choose a noisy model. Generally, mobile air conditioners are the noisiest, but if you prefer this type of air conditioner, you can always look for one that produces less decibels!

Are you looking for a temporary or permanent solution?

In some cases you may only need an air conditioner temporarily. Then it's a good idea to choose a mobile air conditioner. It is easy to move and cheap to buy. However, it is important to note that a mobile air conditioner consumes a lot more energy. That is why it is usually only recommended as a temporary solution or if you do not plan to use it much. A split airco is a better alternative if you want a more permanent solution!

How many rooms do you want to cool?

Do you want to cool more than one room? Then a mono-split air conditioner is not for you. In that case, a mobile or multi-split air conditioner is best. This type of air conditioner consists of one outdoor unit and several indoor units. Exactly how many units depends on how many rooms you want to cool or heat.

A mobile air conditioner can also be used to cool multiple rooms, but not simultaneously. You always have to move the unit to do this. The disadvantage of a multi-split air conditioner is that it is very expensive, because you have to pay for the air conditioner installation and a hefty purchase price. You also have to pay a hefty extra price for each additional indoor unit.

How big is the room?

The size of the room also plays a role, as the required cooling capacity depends on it. It is difficult to calculate this yourself, because there are a number of additional factors that play a role here, such as the degree of insulation, etc. Fortunately, you can easily calculate the capacity yourself. Fortunately, you can easily have a power calculation made by one of our specialists!

What extra options are important to you?

Air conditioners come in many different types. Some models have more functions than others. Many air conditioners nowadays can also heat rooms, because they are equipped with a heat pump. There are also devices that are easy to operate via smartphone or that have a ventilation function. Check out the different options beforehand, so that you know which functions should definitely be included for you!
