From boutique, regionally-focused organizations to multinational corporations, here are the top HVAC distributors leading the Australian market.
Clean air was once a niche issue but now features prominently as mission-critical in many people’s minds. The COVID-19 pandemic sparked greater awareness around indoor air quality and its effect on our lives, and millions of Australians are now focusing on how to ensure that the HVAC systems in their homes can also be utilized to protect them from airborne diseases.
HVAC distributors are often the first place that people turn to learn more about air care technology, and Australian HVAC suppliers are in a unique position to offer their expertise and guidance.
The renewed interest in HVAC systems and their operational efficiency is also growing among businesses. According to the Australian government’s Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems account for up to 50% of a commercial building’s energy use, along with its electricity consumption.
Because of an HVAC system’s potential impact on everything from monthly electricity bills to the bottom line, choosing an HVAC provider is a critical decision for business owners and site managers.
