Installing in apartments – cutting plaster
Install 1 – cutting plaster
Suburb – Sth Melbourne, Melbourne
In some installations the indoor unit needs to be positioned on an internal. In this case the customer wanted the unit centered between the bed and the window. The only way to run the pipes outside was to cut out plaster. Generally it will cost around $400-$500 to re-plaster the wall. If your priority is aesthetics over price, then this could be the option for you.
Most people who actually own the property and plan on staying for a while will choose this option.
A 2.5kw Fujitsu split system fully installed in this situation: $2195 including GST, plus $400-$500 to replaster.
