Spring is already in the air! Trees are blossoming, the temperature is rising, and sunny skies are becoming more and more frequent. With spring just around the corner, many of you might have already started to dig out your summer wardrobe, but have you ensured that your home is ready for the warmer weather? In London, temperatures during the summer months frequently peak at 30 degrees or more, which can make it almost impossible to escape the heat in residential properties that do not have an air conditioning unit installed.
After all, getting a good nights sleep or even relaxing at home can become a tiresome task if you are met with a stifling hot living space. Installing an air conditioning system in your home in the capital will not only allow you to create a cool and comfortable living space, but it can also add significant value to your home too. With this in mind, air conditioning is an invaluable investment when it comes to ensuring that you are able to relax and unwind in optimum comfort and increase the value of your home, all summer long.
What types of air conditioning can you install in residential properties in London?
There are a range of air conditioning solutions for residential properties, from wall mounted units to ducted systems. Before you choose the right AC unit for your property, you should consider the type, the size, which rooms need cooling. This will give you an indication on the type and power of the unit that you are looking to install. You can use our simple cooling calculator to calculate the cooling requirements for your room or property.
Wall Mounted Air Conditioning
Wall mounted AC units are one of the most versatile and cost-effective air conditioning solutions for residential properties. Available in different sizes and colours, you can easily tailor the units to suit your requirements. A single 2.8KW unit can accommodate an average-sized room. You will typically install these units in spaces such as small living rooms, bedrooms, home offices and kitchens. If you are looking to cool a larger space, you will require a higher power unit. Wall mounted units are available up to 6.5 KW and can accommodate open-plan apartments and living areas.
Ducted Air Conditioning
Ducted AC units are a more aesthetically pleasing solution for residential properties. Engineers will usually install these units in a suspended ceiling. Their design, make ducted units discreet. The only visible element are the small grilles in the ceiling. As with wall mounted units, ducted systems can accommodate most residential spaces, from the typical bedroom to open plan kitchen and dining areas.
Residential Water Cooled Air Conditioning
If your property is restricted or limited on space, internal water cooled AC units are the ideal solution. Water Cooled units use mains water to cool the air in a room. This type of internal air conditioning does not require an external condenser unit and is contained internally in a concealed space. As a result, internal water cooled units do no planning permission. This makes them in London properties such as apartments and grade II listed buildings.
