Why should I have air conditioning installed?

Air conditioning offers many benefits beyond cooling. It can provide a year-round climate control solution for a range of different environments. With dual-function, most new units boast an auto-changeover switch, enabling your unit to cool or heat as required for consistent thermal comfort.

How is air conditioning fitted?

Your system will have one indoor air conditioning unit, which will be either wall, floor or ceiling-mounted or ducted. The unit will be linked to an outdoor condenser via piping and a four-core cable. Your air conditioning system will be operable by either an infra-red remote or a hard-wired controller.

How long does it take to install an air conditioning system?

It takes around one day to install a single, complete air conditioning system, comprising an indoor air con unit and an outdoor condenser.

How does air conditioning work step-by-step

  1. The air conditioning system pulls in air from the room through its coils and filters.
  2. It either cools or heats it depending on the temperature it’s set to and the current room temperature.
  3. It then recirculates the air back into the room at the desired temperature.

The sealed system uses refrigeration gas which does not get released, thereby offering an efficient and environmentally-friendly solution. Furthermore, as the gas is not released, no replacement is necessary.

What is the difference between HVAC and air conditioning?

Within the industry, the term HVAC is often used. It refers to heating, ventilation and air conditioning whereas AC simply refers to air conditioning. The terms are often used interchangeably as many systems provide both heating and cooling solutions.

Which air conditioning system is right for me?

There are a range of air conditioning systems and designs from which to choose. EuroCool will carry out a site survey prior to installation to discuss your needs and ensure you get the right system to suit your space and requirements. We work with the leading industry manufacturers, supplying and installing superior products from Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Sanyo and LG.

Is air conditioning worth it in the UK?

In the UK, air conditioning is generally more common in offices and commercial buildings. A home air conditioning unit may seem like an expensive investment considering our generally cool UK climate. However, an HVAC system serves both a cooling and heating function, thereby providing all your climate control requirements, year-round, from one, responsive unit.

Is a home air conditioning unit good for your health?

Most modern units are fitted with an anti-fungus filter to trap allergy-causing mites and unpleasant odours. This helps to maintain air purity and keep your environment clean and fresh.

Are there any additional benefits of air conditioning?

Having air conditioning eliminates the need to open doors and windows. Not only does this maintain a safe and secure environment by keeping unwanted opportunists at bay, it also ensures insects and external noise don’t become an annoyance.

Are air conditioning systems Wi-Fi enabled

All systems have the option of being Wi-Fi enabled. This is ideal if you want to be able to control your system from another room.

What does an HVAC service include?

Manufacturers recommend an annual air conditioning service. Regular maintenance will ensure your system operates optimally. A Manufacturer service includes a 20 point check to include checking the pipework, checking gas levels, full check of indoor and outdoor system, cleaning the filters and overall clean and check performance of system.
