Domestic Air Conditioning

Within the last 10 years air conditioning for cars has gone from being a luxury item to the point where now you can’t find a car without air con as a standard feature. The same can be said for our homes, and in the next 10 years, nearly all homes will have the same fantastic benefit of domestic air conditioning.

Home Air Conditioning Systems

We’ve all lain awake at night, struggling to sleep due to the heat and humidity on summer’s nights. We’ve all lain in bed, trying to figure out what else we can get over ourselves to keep us warm when the boiler has not done the trick. Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to worry about the temperature in your house or how much it could be costing you? With our home air conditioning systems you can make that change and create a much more inviting home to be in for a relatively small outlay. We have found that to run an indoor air conditioner constantly all year round in one room costs around just £70 and this will only get cheaper as technology helps us create more and more efficient units.

The only downside to these lovely additional rooms within your home is the excessive heat gain and the excessive heat loss which is normally unavoidable. Direct Air Conditioning however, can offer stylish and economical air conditioning systems that will give you an effective and efficient solution to both heat buildup and excessive heat loss in your conservatory. When you install conservatory air conditioning instant results can be noticed with just the flick of a switch, immediately making your conservatory a much more inviting environment to relax in.

Here’s the clever thing about modern residential air conditioning systems that many people are not aware of – they can also provide instant heat on demand. By using a heat pump which extracts low temperature energy from the environment and increasing its temperature for heating purposes, our system allows all year round use of your conservatory. And what’s more a heat pump system, due to its innovative design, is up to 5 times more efficient than traditional gas boilers and is more than capable of warming your house completely, even during the lowest winter temperatures. The increasing popularity of these heating systems is reflected by their overwhelmingly successful application in the cold climates of Scandinavia.

How Cost Effective is Air Conditioning?

If you are still considering not getting home air conditioning and having a conventional heat source then let me tell you this: on all standard models of residential air conditioning, the energy efficiency ratio is 1:5 meaning for every kilowatt of energy you put in you get 5 out. A conventional boiler the ratio is 1:0.93 meaning that for every kilowatt you put in, you lose 7% of the energy! 7% may not sound like a lot initially but when you take into account the fact that in 24 hours your boiler produces around 175 kW (kilowatts) of energy but uses 190 kW to create that heat meaning you’re paying for an extra 15 kW a day. Scale this up to a year and take into account the average UK cost for 1 kilowatt hour and you’re potentially wasting a massive £579 a year!

With home air conditioning, you simply don’t have that problem. We could look at how much you would save if you used the same amount of energy as a conventional boiler (it’s £771 if you’re curious) but the fact of the matter is that a domestic air conditioning unit does not need the same amount of energy to run as a conventional boiler. And so you immediately are saving money just by installing air conditioning. Furthermore, because the government considers that home air conditioning is much better for the environment they are encouraging their use by reducing VAT to 5% for home air conditioning installation.
