I have a Samsung AC. So from where I can install this via item brand or third party? What's the cost for total installation?

If you don't get the same installed by the brand, then they voids the warranty. (Most of the companies.)

Congratulations๐ŸŽ‰ on your new acquisition.๐ŸŽŠ

Is it an all in one, window type

or

a split type unit with a separate outdoor (main) unit and a indoor blower.

If you have a tax invoice 'proof of purchase', then
you are eligible for free "standard" installation from Samsung.

However if you purchased from a dealer who is also designated by the brand to perform installations, then be cautious.

In split type HVAC (heating ventilation and and air conditioning) unit installations, the dealers often overcharge and/or the technicians pass off inferior supplies and/or could try to blame their mistakes on to the customer or the manufacturer/s.

Usually Samsung standard installation gives upto 10 feet of (copper) tubing/piping free of charge.

Every additional foot of (copper) piping may be charged 300-320 rupees plus GST for each additional running foot.

This is company rate. On an average you (normal customer) has little to no way of finding out what piping the technicians used.

People claiming to use Finolex, RR or such brand's copper pipe.. charge about 250-20 rupees per running foot, for the (copper) piping.

For inverter type aircons โ‚‹/|\_ please๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ avoid cheap (in cost) or cheap in skill technicians for critical installations and refrigerant refills or full repair.

Many manufacturers are using all types of refrigerants like R22, R410A and so on.

Any mistakes in using the proper variant or using an adulterated mix (of the refrigerant gas) could lead to accidents and RISK TO life and property.


Labour charges are a bit of a scam, so nothing much to bother, it is not really under consumer's control.

Being seasonal work/business.. one can even charge 1000-1400 rupees as just the labour charges, from an average middle income customer.


For now, better to check with other Samsung Aircon owners/users in the locality, whether they used Samsung authorised technicians or others.

And how was their recent experience with the Samsung authorised technicians.

If generally it is positive feedback that you get, then it is advisable to approach the brand first.

Else step down to the dealership/seller who sold the goods.

Mind you, with brand authorised installations, spares and accessories.. EVERYTHING (except the refrigerant gas) might turn out to be costlier.. especially in light of the taxes.

For now, you can ignore what the refrigerants cost, because it is Samsung's responsibility.





But just for reference,
an unadulterated, brand authorised/brand supplied 1500gram or so canister/bottle of R22, R410 might cost about 1600-1700 rupees to the end user.

For inverter type air-conditioners, usually they do not just 'top-up' the refrigerant (gas).

Usual process for inverter type split air-conditioner refrigerant (gas) replacement necessitates filling the line with nitrogen
to check for leaks.

Then vacuuming the nitrogen out.
Thereafter filling IN the refrigerant (gas).

Some fill it up preciselyby weight/volume.

Others use the pressure gauge and the visual reference of condensation/ moisture.

I have called customer care and they asked me for the model number and then they told me this AC is not eligible for free installation.

If it's split AC then always with the brand for the installation.
