Who We Are

Our vision

Our vision is always to go the extra mile for our customers. Our passion for premium quality air conditioning units, ground-breaking system designs and top notch customer service has enabled Ford & Doonan to grow from just two people to over 125 today.

Proudly Western Australian Owned

Ford & Doonan began back in 1985 when the founders discovered a gap in the market for a company that not only continually worked to create more advanced air conditioning designs but also could offer premium customer service. The company currently has eight branches in Perth and 10 branches across Western Australia, each with multiple specialist divisions and service departments.

WA’s Most Awarded

We are WA’s most awarded air conditioning company who you can trust to provide the very best in air conditioning solutions for your home or business.
