From shopping in the convenience of your home or office to having your equipment delivered to your doorstep, buyers will have a lot to benefit from shopping online. It’s extremely helpful to find different options without going out and falling in line in stores. Moreover, some online wholesalers offer huge discounts when you purchase a unit, and even bigger deals when you buy equipment in bulk. This is a huge benefit especially if you are an independent contractor or tradie offering air conditioning services.
While it’s extremely easy and convenient to purchase an air conditioning system online, there are still a few things you need to remember to make sure you get the most out of your equipment.
1. Type of AC and model
The first step is to determine which type of AC to purchase. If you are a tradie specialising in air conditioning services, you may already have a catalog of products that you want to offer to customers, whether it includes window type AC, split systems or ducted systems.
It also helps to have an idea about which brands and models you plan on purchasing. Air2You has a wide selection of air conditioning systems from world-class brands, such as Mitsubishi, Toshiba, Carrier, Samsung, LG, Daikin, and Braemar. Also, look out for brands and models that meet the latest Energy Star standards. Units with higher star ratings mostly consume less power and are therefore more efficient to run. They also generally operate quietly and provide convenient controls.
2. Capacity / Power consumption
Another important aspect to consider is capacity. You have to determine the right size of air conditioner so that it won’t feel insufficient and at the same time not over-chill a room. Getting the right size of AC will help save on electricity costs. This blog post tells you a few important things you need to know when finding out the right size of AC to purchase.
When shopping online, make sure to check the sizing guide and capacity chart before you choose a unit.
Browse the product descriptions thoroughly. Search for unique features like Smart Controls, wi-fi capabilities, and airflow technology. Also, check out other convenient features such as digital displays, remote controls, built-in timers and programmable thermostats. Focus on features that affect the system’s performance and efficiency.
Be diligent in checking a system’s warranty details when shopping online. Some vendors cover both parts and labour while others cover parts only. If you’re unsure about warranties, it helps to contact the company’s customer service via email or phone. To avoid problems in the future, it is best to transact with reputable wholesalers and suppliers only.
5. Payment options
Check for preferred payment options. Most online wholesalers allow for credit card payments. Before checkout, make sure you’ve understood the company’s shipping policy and agree to shoulder shipping costs. Carefully provide your personal details and take note of discount coupons you can use.
6. Delivery options
Most online wholesalers allow buyers to pick up their equipment from their physical store or deliver to your home. Check if your area is within the wholesaler’s free delivery policy. If not, you may be asked to provide a small fee to cover for delivery costs. Also, find out how long you have to wait for your equipment.
