Who can install the split system?

The split system installation must be performed by a licensed technician.

According to the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC), all installers and technicians are required to hold either a full Refrigeration & Air Conditioning license or a restricted license that lets them only install split system air conditioners.

This means you can get the installation done by a plumber, electrician or specialist air con installer, as long as they are licensed to handle refrigerants.
