What type of air conditioning system should I choose?

There are three types of air conditioning systems on the market for you to choose from.

Portable: portable air conditioning units are versatile in that they can be placed anywhere and moved room to room as they are needed. They are limited in their output though, and generally, only small single apartments or at a push a studio flat. 

Split systems: this is the most common type of air conditioning system that you will see in small shops, small offices and homes around the UK. The system consists of an (internal) head unit and (external) condenser/compressor. These are one of the most affordable solutions out there. 

Ducted systems: These systems are installed by integrating them into your home or office’s ceiling, floor and wall space and are designed to cool any sized space. The sky is the limit with this type of system. They can be blended into the design of the building, and for the best part, the equipment is not visible. This is the most expensive type of system, but the performance is second to none. 

What size air conditioner should I get?

To ensure you get the right equipment for your space, you will need to check the capacity of the equipment.

Factors to consider include:

The size of your home or office: The larger the area you want to be cooled, the larger capacity the air conditioning unit will need to be. If you have a multi-storey home or a building with many floors, then you will require multiple units throughout the different areas, which will increase the total cost of the installation.

Room height: If you have higher than average ceilings, your unit will need to generate the required cool air to maintain the desired temperature in each room.

Number of windows: The windows throughout the area to be cooled can account for a considerable amount of a home’s heat loss, so you need to consider this when choosing any of the air conditioning systems we have mentioned.

What will affect my air conditioning quote?

Several factors will influence your the final quote you receive, These factors will include;

  • Make, model and specification of the equipment that is needed to create your desired install. At CCP HVAC wee recommend Fujitsu air conditioning equipment but there are many other makes of equipment on the market. 
  • Amount of piping and ducting needed to get from the internal units to the external units
  • Amount of cable required to install the equipment
  • Electrical equipment upgrade. Depending on the age of the existing fuse board and other critical electrical components in the building, these may need to be replaced to be able to serve the new equipment. 
  • Access to the property is also another critical factor that could change the cost of the install. If the building is high or there is limited external access, then specialist access equipment such as scaffolding may be required. 

Don’t allow any of these factors to deter you from getting a quote. We have experience installing air conditioning in a vast array of properties. We will have a solution to help you achieve your goal and your budget.
