The Carbon Tax being introduced next month will increase air conditioners and refrigeration gases by 300 to 500%. This is a result of the Carbon-Equivalent Levy being applied to refrigerant gases.
Basically it means that a new Air Conditioner will cost more, or having an existing air conditioning unit serviced will cost more.
Looking at a particular refrigerant gas (R410a), the calculation works out to an extra $47.38/kg that will need to be paid, increasing to $52.32 in 2014. Another way to look at this is with a popular Daikin RXS60KVMA (Split System Compressor); we will see the cost increase by $59.51.
