Everything To Know About Air Conditioning For Flats

Just because you live in a flat or apartment block, doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to reap the many benefits that come hand in hand with installing an air conditioning unit in your home. There are a number of different high performance air conditioning units that can accommodate a wide range of building types, including apartments and flats. This guide will cover everything to know about air conditioning for flats.

why should you invest in air conditioning?

Perfect for keeping the spaces that you spend the most time in cool, comfortable and inviting, all year round. Air conditioning is now seen as an essential component in many homes across the UK. If you live in London, you will know that temperatures regularly hit 30 degrees or more during the summer months. It’s easy to see why so many Londoners view air conditioning as a top priority. After all, there’s nothing worse than trying to relax in a space that is stifling hot and uncomfortable, right?

Planning Permission & Restrictions

Flats and apartments often have planning restrictions when it comes to installing air conditioning, particularly in cities such as London. Restrictions often mean that you cannot drill holes in the external wall of the property to install a traditional condenser. In addition, the protected nature of listed buildings also prohibits the installation of an external unit. This often leaves property owners looking for alternative ways to keep their properties cool in the summer months.

Air conditioners for flats and apartments

AC units with a water cooled internal condenser unit are best for flats and apartments. This is especially those that have building constraints and are unable to accommodate an outdoor unit hanging on the wall. Water cooled internal condenser units are also a great option if you are living in a listed building. This because this type of unit requires no planning permission. Installation engineers install the condenser inside the property. They will usually hide the condenser in a cupboard or under the kitchen sink.

What Are The Benefits Of Water Cooled Air Conditioning?

Perfect for overcoming planning restrictions, water cooled AC offers a range of benefits:

  • No planning permission
  • No external condenser
  • Whisper quiet technology
  • Units are energy efficient
  • Suitable for apartments & listed buildings
