3 tips for installing air conditioning to your body corporate property
The Queensland summer can be brutal, so to dial down the temperature you may want to consider installing air conditioning to your body corporate property
It’s not unusual for owners to install air con to their homes, especially considering how hot Queensland summers can get. However, before installing air conditioning to your body corporate property, there are a few things to consider.
In a body corporate property, any fixed air conditioner requires a compressor and pipes to be fitted to the exterior of your building and may require drilling into the wall. As exterior walls are common property, you will need to get permission from your body corporate before going ahead with an installation.
Under Schedule 6 of the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997, air conditioning installation is considered a non-structure improvement. This means that an owner can make an improvement to common property if approved by the committee or the body corporate at a general meeting.
