The tradesman were efficient, timely and very professional.....in today's world we always hear the negative never the positive, we have to change this hence my email.

I will relay my point of view of your company to family and friends, and please relay my message to the staff concerned.

"Thank You" once again.

“Mark, i'd like to give you a quick feedback on how the installation of 2 Panasonic air conditioners went at Panbula Place Flinders on Thursday 5th November. We were very impressed with the 2 boys Jarrod & Scott. They were very polite, worked quickly & efficiently & were very helpful moving some cupboards that were in the way of pipework & then replaced everything back in its original place & removed all rubbish. We also found young Brendan to be very polite & helpful when giving us the quote. Overall the whole process of dealing with you & your company has been a very positive experience, and we would have no hesitation in recommending Rapidcool to our friends."

“I am writing to you to express our appreciation and acknowledge your efforts over the past four years ( since 2002 ) as one of our leading service agents from a group of over 650.

Unfortunately in this day and age, good quality Service Agents are rare in our industry and it is company's such as yours that Fujitsu General is proud to be associated with.

As you are aware, the current technical complexity of our products requires complete understanding of not only the higher level functions, as demanded by our customer's, but also a complete understanding of the basics of refrigeration theory. The technical diligence that you have applied on many occasions deserves acknowledgement and we look forward to working with your company into the future.

On many occasions we have requested that you attend to customers quickly and you have always been prepared to respond accordingly.

Fujitsu General is certainly prepared to recommend your company as one of the premium Service Agents in the Illawarra area.

Kind regards,

Bruce Stuckey - Fujitsu National Service Manager

“I would just like to say thank you for installing our ducted air conditioning system. I was initially in two minds about the whole thing and about which system to choose, but your honesty, product knowledge and confidence set my mind at ease.

Credit also to the RapidCool team ( Austin & others ) who installed the system in our home, what a fantastic team they are. I was amazed at just how quick and efficient they are.

Thank you again,

Mirjana & Chris Bugeja.

“Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for the professional manner you conducted yourselves in the process and installation of a ducted air conditioning unit at my premises over the last 2 days.

I would particularly emphasis our thanks to the 2 young men who were the main installers. They were efficient, considerate and thorough in ensuring we were satisfied with the system and comfortable with knowing how to use the system.

It was a pleasure dealing with your firm.

Kind Regards

Peter & Sue O'Leary

“Just a quick note to say how pleased I am with the air conditioning system you installed in my home 12 months ago.

We have been through cooling and warming cycles of the system without problem. My wife refers to our home as 'toasty' now we are in winter, and the cooling capacity in summer was just wonderful.

As you know, I obtained three quotes before selecting your company. and I am very happy I did as both other companies wanted to install much more powerful systems at a much greater expense to my home. You advised against it, said the unit you installed would be more than adequate for a house the size of mine, and you were right. Your honest, professional approach saved me thousands of dollars and I now have an excellent air conditioning system thanks to Rapidcool.

Again, many thanks for your advise and our trouble free unit.”

Best wishes,

Geoff Phillips - Geoff Phillips Productions.

“Firstly, just a quick note to let you know I am most impressed with the manner in which both yourself and your staff conducted themselves during the installation of my air-conditioning unit at North Wollongong.

I thought that this feedback may be of use to you - that you were the only trades person that quoted a completed job on time ( and within the quoted amount ) out of the seven different trades persons that worked on my renovation.

We are very happy with the air-conditioning unit, which you suggested - not only is it quiet, but doing the job marvelously well!

Once again, thank you on a job well done.”

Kind Regards

Mark and Suzanne O'Brien

“I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the installation of the air conditioning today!

My husband was home while the guys completed the installation and was really impressed with their work.

We look forward to putting it to good use over the rest of the summer!!!"

Kind Regards

Were Mark O'Keefe given the opportunity of starting his working life over again he would probably study exercise science, he says. Even so, lifestyle is the most important factor in Mark's life, certainly more than making money.

Born and bred in Wollongong, Mark attended St Brigids where he spent a stint as an alter boy. He then continued his studies at Edmund Rice College. Mark was eager to enter the workforce and decided that completing an apprenticeship of some form or another was mandatory. He was devastated when his initial application for an apprenticeship in the refrigeration and air conditioning are was unsuccessful, but elated just a few weeks later when Graeme Hodder offered him a position with 'Carrier Air Conditioning' as a refrigeration and air conditioning apprentice.

Once qualified, Mark spent the next few years working for a number of air conditioning businesses in Wollongong, Brisbane and Cairns. It was during this time that he also worked as a gym instructor in John Dorahy's Gym and as a lifeguard with the Wollongong City Council. He decided too that he had to improve his management skills and completed a Management course at Wollongong TAFE.

With his management Certificate on board, Mark decided that he had learnt enough to establish his own air conditioning business and in 1993 Rapidcool was created. His business, though small, enjoys an excellent reputation in the local area for prompt, efficient service. The comp nay provides and installs traditional room air conditioners, split systems and ducted air conditioners for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.

"I'm an impatient person and I don't like waiting for people. Why should my customers wait for me? If I'm running behind time I make a point of contacting the customer to let them know how long I'll be. I believe that they shouldn't have to wait around waiting. The customer is the most importation person because without them I wouldn't be in business."
