Do you need air conditioning if you live near the coast?

Where you live affects how warm or cool it will be at different times of the year. If you live close to the sea, you can benefit from its cooling breeze in the summer and its warmth in the winter, compared to inland areas that are warmer in the summer and colder in the winter. A coastal beach brings in cooler breezes than a harbour beach.

Buildings on the Upper North Shore generally require more cooling and heating than those on the Lower North Shore, but you'll still benefit from having energy-efficient air conditioning installed wherever you live to keep you cool in the hotter months.

Other factors also affect how much natural cooling you're able to receive in your home, such as its design, the materials used in its construction and the orientation of your windows and doors.

At Maxim Air, we specialise in all types of air conditioners from all the major brands, so we can recommend the ideal option for your home or business.

Can living on the coast damage your air conditioning?

One problem with living near the sea is that salt and sand in the air can get into your air conditioning unit and damage its metal coils and other components. That's why routine maintenance is so important to make sure it's free from faults and operating at peak efficiency.

When we install your new air conditioner, we'll organise a maintenance schedule so our technicians can check, clean and service the unit and its components as often as needed, helping you to enjoy uninterrupted cooling.

If your A/C does develop a problem, regular maintenance means we can catch minor issues before they become serious, saving you money on repairs and extending the life of your system.

How to look after your air conditioner

You can help your air conditioning system stay in good working order with regular cleaning and maintenance. You should:

Clean or change the filters. This should be done at least once a month if you live on the coast, or more frequently if you have pets.

Clean the outside unit. Spray the coils and aluminum fan blades a few times a week to rinse away salt and prevent corrosion.

Clear away obstacles. Keep the area around the outdoor condenser unit free from leaves and other debris, to avoid blocking the airflow and putting a strain on the system.

Install a resilient system. Maxim Air's technicians will recommend air conditioning that's designed specifically for a coastal climate, with components that will stand up to corrosion.

    Just had a ducted system and a single unit installed by Maxim. The "whole journey" was an exceptional experience! - very approachable, competitive and reasonable pricing, accommodating to installation date, friendly staff including the owners, who are down to earth people.

    No need to look elsewhere!

    MaXim Air recently installed ducted airconditioning in our home. From start to finish the service was very professional and efficient. The installations guys were awesome and worked tirelessly in extreme heat to complete the job and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Thank you MaXim Air

    Thanks to Arran and Stephen for their excellent workmanship and customer friendly attitude. Right from the beginning of the process they always guided us about the right product for our home and kept us informed all along. We installed 18.0 KW ducted AC and the whole process was really smooth. There was some delay from my end in approving the quote but Arran still did his best to accommodate the installation dates so that my family can bear the unexpected hot weather in Sydney during the months of December and January. Thanks Maxim team.

    The team at MaXim Air are extremely professional and friendly. They provided expert advice and suggestions during the initial quote for a ducted system, which was also highly competitive. The installation went flawlessly, they even helped fix up a sagging ceiling when installing the ducted vents. They truly went above and beyond in making sure I was 100% happy with the job. I would highly recommend MaXim Air Conditioning.

    Arran provided expert advice and ideas (that no one else had suggested) for the initial quote for our ducted air conditioning. The quote was very competitive. We received reminders of the installation day via text prior to installation. On the day of installation Victor and his team arrived on the dot of 7am and worked all day until the job was completed. They were very conscientious and cleaned up thouroughly. Would highly recommend MaXim air conditioning services.

    Maxim recently installed 2 split system air conditioners for us and we were very pleased with their excellent service. Stephen and his team were efficient, hardworking, professional, and pleasant to deal with. We were impressed with the effort that the team went to in ensuring we were happy with the position of the units in each room, and making sure the areas were tidy and all rubbish removed after installation. The team was punctual and completed the tasks within the quoted time frame. We also were grateful for the quick responses to our queries. We would highly recommend Maxim. Thank you Stephen and team.

    Excellent service from the Maxim team. A bit late (due at 7am which is too early on a Saturday anyway!) but no concern as they did a great job and were very helpful. Highly recommended.
