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.

Fantastic service! Stephen was very helpful and professional right from the start.

Our air condition is 20 years old and never worked to full potential it was always very weak and not much heating or cooling. Rang Stephen he came had a look and advised to change all the ducts and put new zones. Very happy we went with his advise we ended up with perfect heating and cooling so he really saved us from buying a new unit. The guys who came to do the job were all very efficient and polite, I would not refrain from recommending them to anyone they were all very good and very reasonable priceMarlene Nassif 13/06/2018
The boys at Maxim Air Conditioning were very professional and respectful. My new ducted airconditioning has been great. The best thing I found about the whole installation was how quiet and kind the staff were to my family and home environment. Cleaned up everything at the end and took away all packaging. Would recommend this company to anyone!Nicholas Scott 13/06/2018

Maxim did a really good job. Stephen and Aaron provided a good solution for me and provided viable options for the system. Their team does neat work and goes the extra mile (they fixed some holes they found in my roof for me and provided some tips on fixing damaged drywalling). A really good experience they delivered what they promised.Tobin Lottering 27/03/2018
