Air Conditioning FAQs
An air conditioning unit is designed to distribute (hot and cold) air throughout a room or building. It can also help improve the air quality and act as a dehumidifier.
All outdoor units we fit are able to withstand the harsh weather conditions we experience in the winter. We do not advise covering the unit as if the system is turned on by accident without uncovering the outside unit, it could cause serious damage to the system. However, we would recommend that you have your air conditioning system serviced after this period to ensure it is working as it should be.
The cost of an air conditioning system will depend mainly on the size of the room you wish to install the unit in and the type of unit you are installing. MAC offer a wide range of air conditioning systems all varying in price. Check out our online price calculator for an accurate quote for air conditioning installation based on your requirements.

If your current air conditioner is showing signs of failure, you should look at installing a new system. These signs include an increase in running costs, regular refrigerant refills and also, old age could be a factor.

Buy Now Pay Later provides the option of deferring your payment for a set period and selecting how long you’d like to pay monthly once the deferral period ends. You will be charged interest after this deferral period but you can start your payments beforehand to further reduce the interest you pay. Alternatively, you can select Interest Bearing Credit which also allows you to spread the cost with monthly payments, although these payments will start immediately you will be able to set the repayment period to suit you and you will have a lower interest rate compared to Buy Now Pay Later.
With either option you may be required to place a deposit beforehand, but this solely depends on the value of your order and will be clearly explained by a member of the MAC team. For further details, please refer to our finance page.
