Air conditioning for flats

Why is water-cooled air conditioning in the UK so high in demand?

This summer, almost every part of the UK has experienced long, hot summer days and record temperatures.

Although many of us have thoroughly enjoyed soaking up the sunshine at every opportunity, learning to live and work in these temperatures has been a very different matter, with many people struggling to sleep, work and even complete everyday tasks.

And changes in the UK’s climate has meant that more people than ever before are investing in air conditioning units, especially those living in London where temperatures have reached 30 degrees or more.

As the majority of London properties are flats, apartments or listed buildings, there has been a stark rise and demand for water-cooled AC (air conditioning with no external unit).

This is because unlike other AC units, which use an outside condenser, water cooled air conditioning units are self contained, require no planning permission or an outside condenser box, meaning they are perfect for installation in apartments, listed buildings and flats, which make up most of London’s skyline.

what are the benefits of water-cooled internal condenser AC system?


  • Ideal for listed buildings, apartments, offices and shop units within shopping centres, where an outside condenser box or external vents are unsuitable.
  • The condensing unit is hidden within the property and uses mains water in a controlled manner to remove heat
  • Low noise output.
  • No planning permission is required.
