Air Con Install - Not fishing related

 Hi - Can anyone give me a price on the install of a 3.5kw Fujitsu Split System? I just bought one and want to get it put up in my daughters bedroom - direct access to outside and the ground unit can go on the corner of the house (back corner room). Seems the cost varies but wanted to find out some ball park idea - or anyone want a cashie?

 Not a quote as such but I did the same thing in our current home.  Paid the installer 800 plus the sparkie 500 to run the power.

 

I don't worry about cashie jobs now...its only 10% and they make up their price each time.  Let them claim it on tax.

 

Hope that helps.

have no idea why you would pay an "installer" then pay a sparky extra. just get licenced sparky to do all it.
for a basic back to back install, outside floor mount (no brackets) and not too far a run to fuebox expect to pay....really at the most $800. total. usually about 4ish hours work.
