Apartments and flats bring their own set of challenges when it comes to installing air conditioning. Building restrictions will often limit the types of air conditioning units that you can install. This is because many buildings will not permit the installation of an external condensing unit. With cities like London’s property landscapes dominated by flats and apartments, water-cooled air conditioning systems offer the ideal solution with a range of benefits for these types of properties.
What are the benefits of water-cooled air conditioning?
No External Condenser Unit
It is common for owners of apartments and flats to need planning permission to install an air conditioning system. This is because a traditional condenser is installed on the outside of the building. One of the main benefits of a water-cooled system is that they do not require an outdoor condenser box. The water-cooled condenser unit is installed internally, therefore you do not need to acquire any planning permission.
Condenser Unit Hidden
With traditional air conditioning units, many consider the outdoor condenser units visually unappealing. In order to combat this, installation engineers will hide the water-cooled condenser within your apartment. Additionally, the condenser is hidden in concealed spaces such as cupboards or underneath kitchen sinks, for added benefit.
Low Noise Output
Modern water-cooled air conditioning units operate with very low noise output. In addition, night set-back settings allow you to slow down the fans of the A/C unit. As a result, this function will reduce noise levels even further at night. Additionally, it will reduce the cooling requirement and regulate your apartment’s climate in line with lower night-time temperatures.
Low Power Consumption
Power consumption is a common concern for air conditioning systems in general. The latest inverter technology compressors optimise the water-cooled A/C system to consume less power which results in greater energy efficiency. New models assure the lowest consumption of electricity and water than any other models on the market. As a result, you do not have to worry about large energy bills.
Reverse Heat Pump Technology
As an addition to cooling aspect of the A/C unit, water-cooled air conditioning systems have the option of reverse heat pump technology. This allows for a heating facility, meaning that you can be comfortable all year around with both heating and cooling facilities at your disposal.
Reduced Environmental Impact
The incorporation of R-32, a new refrigerant gas, is more efficient and has a lower environmental impact than previous gases.
