Hello! Has Febraury passed us already? For the southern hemisphere, it means the official end of the summer season and a welcome to autumn. For Melbourne and the rest of Victoria, summer 2011/12 meant a scorching start to the New Year, with the second day of 2012 reaching 40 degrees! And Melbourne’s northern suburbs experienced a freaky Christmas afternoon, when a shock of a thunderstorm resulted in hail stones the size of golf balls! That’s Melbourne weather for you.
Anyway, we would like to wish all our customers, colleagues, family and friends a belated Happy 2012 and we greatly thank our Coldflow Team for their fantastic work over the business’ busiest period. It’s no surprise for you to hear that November through to February is our industry’s peak season, so there was little time to blog in our business as we concentrated our team’s efforts on providing our customers with quality cooling products and exceptional customer service.
So, apart from 40 degrees and Christmas hail stones, what was the overall summer like this year? It was an unusually hot summer for metropolitan Melbourne. The average minimum temperature was recorded at 16.4 degrees, 2.5 degrees more than the long-term average. An article in The Age, (published 29th Feburary 2012) featured Alex Zadnik, a senior meteorologist at forecast firm Weatherzone, who said January and February were particularly warm this year, with maximum temperatures averaging 27.4 and 27.3 degrees respectively — 1.5 degrees higher than usual. “Both the maximum and minimum temperatures experienced in Melbourne this summer were significantly above the long-term average,” he said.
Finally, as we take the step into some cooler days, we are proud to mention one of our summer highlights was installing air-conditioners for the houses featured in The Block – Channel Nine’s successful home improvement TV show last year. Many thanks to the lead Coldflow crew, Daniel H, David C and the others in our team for their involvement!
We hope everyone enjoys the first weekend in autumn.
This is my second system that Coldflow have installed, and I'm very happy with the result.
2 head air conditioning system installation was quick and tidy. Even though the cassettes are more complicated and involved to install. All the guys cleaned up after themselves and took all the rubbish away. Excellent service and workmanship, even when it rained and then heat (its Melbourne )
System work a treat, just waiting for the heatwave to arrive. Great work by the team.
I was extremely happy with the service provided by Coldflow.
I had a ducted cooling system installed, the team turned up on time and completed the job the same day. The guys were courteous and completed the job with a minimum of fuss and disruption. The workmanship was excellent and all ducts were located as per our previous agreement. The y placed drop sheets wherever required and cleaned up after completion. Again was very happy with the service provided by all the crew.
Replaced gas ducted unit. Installation was the perfect I have ever seen and the installers cleanup and did more than they were suppose to do. Customer service focused and really good company to work with. Have also got my cooling installed from them last year, so recommended already to friends and to anyone needing Heating and Cooling
From my first conversation with a consultant, I felt confident that Coldflow had the experience and knowledge I was looking for. I was thrilled with the level of customer service I received and follow up from them. The installers were professional and helpful and on time. I am very happy with the evaporative cooling unit we chose, thanks to the assistance and guidance of our consultant. I highly recommend Coldflow and would use them again.
Very good service. David the Sales consultant understood what i wanted with no pressure, and was patient. Installers were friendly. Had one one problem with controller, but they have back the next day and was promptly fixed. Thanks again
Thanks to Craig at Coldflow. He listened to me, about how cold and hot certain rooms were. Other companies just tried to sell me what they wanted. Very good service, very happy with my heating and cooling.
