Staycool does not provide for any electrical mains, gas or water upgrades. This is the customers or householder’s responsibility.
SCOPE OF WORKS
(a) New premises: The customer is responsible to provide all utilities to installed equipment. This includes a gas supply and gas cock to gas ducted heaters, power points for gas ducted heater, and evaporative cooling units within 1 metre of appliance, and appropriate electrical isolators for refrigerated condensing units. The customer is responsible for appropriate drainage of evaporative coolers and refrigerated coils & condensers.
(b) Existing premises: For gas ducted heating, evaporative coolers, refrigerated airconditioning and other products, Staycool provides local connection only for gas, power & water where required to the buyers existing gas line, water line or power.
(c) Locating unit and outlets: If the customer is not home at the time of installation, Staycool will make its best efforts to install the unit and outlets in the most practical and appropriate position available. This will take into consideration limiting structural factors that may lead to the installers deviating from the original plan, irrespective of what has been written in the sales contract or been communicated by Staycool sales consultants. If the customer requests for Staycool to change the location of the unit or any register after installation, this will be a cost borne by the customer to be separately quoted by Staycool. The customer will be responsible for the cost of returning the affected services to their original condition, such as, but not limited to rendering, painting and plastering and the like
(d) Air Balancing: With ducted heating or cooling systems, Staycool attempts to balance the outlets as best as possible, however precise balancing of air volumes is not possible. If the customer requests for Staycool to rebalance air volumes after the day of installation, this will be chargeable to customer.
(e) All rubbish: Staycool will only remove Manufacturer’s packaging and minor rubbish.
ZONED HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEMS
Where zoning is quoted as part of a ducted or multi head system, it is taken that the system does not have the capacity to heat and/or cool the customer’s entire premises, and zones must be closed to heat and/or cool to achieve rated conditions.
(a) Design conditions are based on the customer installing the appropriate roof and wall insulation, internal and external window covering, particularly north/west facing.
