Wherever you live on the North Shore, Maxim Air can install a custom air conditioning system tailored to your local climate and your individual preferences.
We understand that your cooling needs are influenced by your environment. Our expert technicians will design a system that helps you make the most of natural cooling, lowering your energy bills while keeping you and your family comfortable.
Maxim Air has installed and repaired air conditioners in homes and commercial buildings across Sydney for over 10 years.
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.
Maxim is one of the best company to work with. Professional, punctual and very friendly, they did a fantastic job. I highly recommend them.Haixi Yang 21/10/2018
I had several companies quote to replaced my existing, very old, ducted system. Maxim was the only company to actually listen to what I wanted and make great suggestions - and they delivered a quote that was much lower than I had expected. They turned up on the agreed day and worked till the job was done - no corners were cut - the quality of the install was excellent. It was a very large complex job. They cleaned up everywhere - it was like they had never been there. They left very late at night, after a very early start. Before they left I found them with a torch going over my driveway in detail to make sure no screws had been left that i would drive over - you don't see that attention to detail often. The large team we had working at our place were all very courteous and friendly. For value, integrity and a very high standard or workmanship - I would recommend Maxim to anyone without hesitation.Paul Kangro 20/10/2018

Friendly service and honest advice. Fixed the a/c unit with a simpler fix (which may or may not last) rather than going straight to the expensive fixJames Wakeham 11/09/2018
Aaron delivered on his promise to do the job on time (our tight time-line) and on budget (best quote received). Technicians Matt and Vic were very punctual, very polite, tidy, efficient and helpful. Maxim is highly recommended.smiley r 21/08/2018

Fantastic service! Stephen was very helpful and professional right from the start. My house had a very small roof space which made the job very challanging, but he took it onboard and made things work. The boys were very friendly and professional. Would highly recommend MaXim Air to my family and friends. Thank youUzma Raza 28/06/2018
