Airwell Air Conditioning
Service and Repairs Gold Coast
Yes, we do repair and service Airwell air conditioners and Emailair air conditioners here on the Gold Coast. Whether they are the wall mounted type, the ducted type, rooftop package or the cassette type, they are nearly all repairable. Most parts for Airwell and Emailair air conditioners are still imported and available in Australia for which we at Air Affair have excellent access to. These parts are genuine parts. We are fortunate enough to also be able to source and use generic parts for a number of Airwell air conditioner repairs, and this is the reason that we are able to repair most systems that require service. It just depends on the nature of any failure.
Airwell in Australia
Airwell was operational under the ECP banner (Electra Consumer Products), a very large organization here in Australia, which has now more or less evolved into Electrolux. Their ‘foot in the door’ so to speak was with the acquisition of a very well known and respected brand called Emailair. Most of the air conditioners installed here were manufactured in Israel by Electra, an Airwell subsidiary, Australia, and in China. During their heyday they were responsible for a very large amount of air conditioners being installed around the country as they were very competitively priced. The range of Airwell split ducted systems were very popular and many thousands are still operational today. (2014)
Sadly, things didn’t quite go to plan for ECP. They did their best to honor their products and warranties, but the overwhelming amount of equipment they had supplied got the better of them and in 2007 they went into receivership.
History of Airwell
Airwell was established in France in 1947, producing its first window mounted air conditioner in 1950 and its first split system in Europe 20 years later. The company originally designed and built cooling processes for the industrial industry and a few years later started producing air conditioners for the light commercial and residential market, mainly for the harsh climates in the French African colonies and the Middle East.
During the boom times they managed to boast a portfolio of 600 or so models for a wide range of air conditioning and cooling applications. The main brand names under their umbrella were, along with the Airwell brand, Electra, Fedders and Wesper. Some of these other brands were imported into Australia, although Airwell succeeded in Australia with the acquisition of Emailair.
Divisions of Airwell (overseas) have since been divided and sold off to companies in Sweden and Germany.
Airwell is internationally recognised as representing quality, sophistication and technical innovation in air conditioning for residential and commercial use. A respected brand name of the global ECP group of companies, Airwell has a rich history in Australia and New Zealand linking back to Emailair.
