I need 1 A/C unit replacing( the other 3 are fine)The original ones are Panasonic installed about 14 years ago. Doesn't need to be the same make ? 

Would want an approximate price for a new one or if available a reconditioned unit, I'm trying to keep the cost as reasonable as possible.

Hi Tizzy,

It will obviously depend on the size, but I got quotes last autumn for a new inverter unit for a bedroom and they varied, supplied and installed, between €540 and €580.  Hopefully, someone in your area can recommend a fitter.

Kind regards,

Kim

Hi Kimmy.

Thank you very much for your message. 

My A/ C unit is a small - average size, certainly not large.

I had one price given to me, which was much more expensive than the ones you were quoted. Really hope l can find a fitter in the Calpe area.

Like Kimmy, we had a few quotes last year for a single split inverter unit for a bedroom, and went for one at a cost of €530 all in, done by a company based in Guardamar. All quotes were in the range of €500 to €600, so expect to pay within this range.

I wouldn’t go near a pre-conditioned unit - if indeed they exist- there won’t be any manufacturers warranty for starters

We had to replace our Mitsubishi unit in our bedroom in August. We couldn’t get Steve Birkett as he was snowed under with work. We went to a local Spanish firm on the Avenue de Valencia and paid €630. Fitted within 2 days which was vital as you can imagine.  If you can get a good unit offering cool, hot and dehumidifier, go for it. Every room should gave an aircon unit in this country. Money well spent.
