The scorching sunshine in Melbourne during the sultry summer months undoubtedly demands air conditioning. The summer heat is too much to handle for the hip populace and refraining from daily chores is also not on the cards. Air-conditioning soothes the weather to inspire normal daily chores in a comfy way; so that you don’t feel over exhausted and lethargic to sparingly participate in the activities of life. Installation of air-conditioning isn’t much of a headache if you have a few required tools and the zeal to follow the precise DIY instructions.

Window Air conditioning

It’s a bit bulky unit to handle swiftly I agree, but don’t be scared it isn’t too heavy to cause a dropping out of window while installation. Prepare for the voyage of fix-in the AC with lots of sheet metal screw and a cordless drill, ideally with a screw tip; along with couple of expanding panels also few brackets and plywood pieces.

Remove the outer casing of your air-condition unit, according to your model’s directions undo the screws of metal casing and slip it off the unit.

Fix the casing on window and fasten it with sheet metal screws.

Check to confirm no movement of the casing; lift the air conditioner and slide it in installed housing.

Attach expandable side panels to cover the open window area otherwise measure the area to be covered and cut pieces of quarter-inch plywood accordingly. Fit in using silicone sealant and stuff in foam insulation around the window unit.

Split Air Conditioning

It’s a little more complicated than window unit but with ample experience in plumbing and electrical work, you can get it installed all by you; keep up the zeal and make sure to grab the basic tools. Indoor unit- Choose a suitable location at least 7 feet above the ground. Level the mounting plate against the wall and drill holes at the appropriate spots to affix the plate. Shove-in plastic anchors and firmly secure the plate to the wall using tapping screws. Lift the indoor unit and press it against the mounting plate, ensure it is fastened impeccably. Finally join water drainage pipe to the base of indoor unit.

Connecting pipesDrill a 3″ diameter hole through the wall that slopes down toward the exterior. Insert a flexible flange into the hole for purpose of adequate drainage. Bind copper pipes and power cables together with electric tapes and further affix drain pipe at the bottom with duck-tape wraps; to allow free flow of water.

Outdoor condenser- Attach metal angles to the exterior wall, away from any heavily trafficked or dusty areas for supporting the condenser unit. Choose the size and endurance wisely as the unit is quite heavy one; also provide rubber cushioning underneath to minimise vibration. Follow the manufacturer’s wiring diagram and instructions to connect the cable wires, use a cable clamp for better joining. Secure the flare nuts of the pipes to corresponding inlets on outdoor unit. Lastly the air and humidity from refrigerant circuit needs to be bleed. You’re done, just relax and enjoy the cool air!
