Before we work out the benefits of an air conditioner universal remote, it is important to understand what a universal remote is.
“A universal remote is a remote control that can be programmed to operate various brands of one or more types of consumer electronics devices. Low-end universal remotes can only control a set number of devices determined by their manufacturer, while mid and high end universal remotes allow the user to program in new control codes to the remote. Many remotes sold with various electronic devices include universal remote capabilities for other types of devices, which allow the remote to control other devices beyond the device it came with. For example, a VCR remote may be programmed to operate various brands of televisions.” Wikipedia

Majority of our business has come from frustrated customers that have either been treated poorly by other retailers or have found it difficult to near as possible in some cases to get the correct remote for their unit. One thing to factor in when researching a specific remote is when you are buying an ‘original’ remote that is specific to a single brand, you will find that either a retailer or installer / repair company will charge you an excessive amount of money that is not justified. Our remotes are not only cheaper, but they are flexible enough to be compatible with many brands.
We also stick by our products and are proud of them. If you receive one of our remotes in the mail and find it difficult to synchronize the remote to your unit, don’t hesitate to call the 1300 number on our website. We have staff that are waiting on the other end of the phone happy to help.
So please, don’t spend your precious time in researching the brand and exact model type you require. Give us a call and we can take all of the hassle away from you and provide a remote that is compatible to your needs.
