Best Air Conditioning For Your Conservatory

Conservatories are a great addition to any home. Not only to they add value to your property but gives you extra space in your home with lots of natural light. Your ideal AC solution will depend on your budget, the size of your conservatory and the aesthetic that you are looking to maintain. This guide will help you find the best air conditioning solution for your conservatory.

The Benefits Of Installing Air Conditioning In Your Conservatory

Due to the number of windows, conservatories can get very hot during the summer months. They also get very cold during the winter. This makes using your conservatory throughout the year somewhat of a challenge. Your most effective solution to fluctuating temperatures is to install an air conditioning system. There are many benefits that an AC system brings to your home.

Air Purification

Air conditioners are known for their air cleaning capabilities, promoting a healthy indoor living environment. They are particularly effective at removing pollutants from your indoor airspace. This includes dust, pollen and other allergens such as pet hair.

Heating and Cooling

The reverse cycle allows you to heat or cool the room with your AC system. This is particularly useful for conservatories due to the temperature fluctuations between seasons, keeping your space comfortable all year around.

Humidity Regulation

Conservatories can become very humid, particularly during the summer months. AC systems regulate humidity levels by removing the heat and moisture from the air via the evaporator coil, leaving the room cooler and more comfortable. This has a range of benefits in terms of preventing condensation on the windows and reducing the chance of mould growth. As a result, this not only reduces the risk of damp and mould damage to the interior conservatory but prevent any related health conditions.

Types Of Air Conditioners For Your Conservatory

Portable Air Conditioners

Portable air conditioners are a quick and cost-effective air conditioning solution. They require minimal effort in terms of installation so you can get set-up quickly. This option is therefore most suited if you are on a limited budget and want a quick fix.

It is important to note that portable air conditioners are not as effective as installed units. In addition, they require floor space, which may already be limited in your conservatory. They also require access to an open window to allow for the outlet pipe to distribute the warm air outside.

  • Quick set-up


  • Takes up floor space
  • Requires open window

Wall Mounted Air Conditioners

Wall mounted air conditioners are a more permanent, versatile and cost-effective solution for conservatories. They are available in a range of colours and sizes, making them easy to accommodate your space. These units are ideal for conservatories, given that there is a full-sized wall available for installation. They are easily retrofitted and can be installed in one day.

Water-cooled Air Conditioners

Water cooled air conditioners are great for restricted or limited properties. They require no external condenser which eliminates the requirement for planning permission. Unlike traditional units, water cooled systems use water instead of air to cool your indoor space. As a result, the condensers installed internally and plumbed into your mains water supply.

These units help you save on space as engineers hide the condenser unit in a concealed space such as a hallway cupboard or under the kitchen sink. With no external condenser, you also do no not have to compromise the visual aesthetic of your home.

We source our units from Parkair, who provide the best water cooled air conditioning products on the market.

What Size Air Conditioner Do I Need For My Conservatory?

The size of the unit that you will need depends on the size of the room you are looking to cool, the direction that it is facing and the window area. The large number of windows in a conservatory will have a significant impact on the size of the unit required. Please refer to our air conditioning size guide and calculator to get idea of the size you will need.

The Importance Of Air Conditioning Maintenance

In order for your air conditioner to work effectively, you need to have a regular maintenance schedule. Air conditioning maintenance will prevent any unexpected malfunctions and breakdowns. Additionally, you will save money on electricity bills. Neglecting to maintain your AC system will result in blocked filters and malfunctioning parts, which means the unit will have to work harder to cool your space.
