Life With medical Air Conditioning

Put Your Patients First

Clean air

Healthcare premises need to be clean and that starts with clean air and proper ventilation. Extracting stale air breathed by patients and replacing it with fresh air from outside, keeping patients, staff and visitors safe from any airborne and droplet carried transmissions.

By installing medical air conditioning in your hospital or other healthcare location you ensure patient comfort and optimal ventilation for healthcare purposes. You also ensure your practice is completely compliant with government regulations, standards and laws. Certain medical applications, such as surgical theatres, require even more specialised air conditioning and ventilation systems, to ensure minimal particulates are present that could complicate procedures. Put simply, proper ventilation is vital for healthcare.

Choosing your air con units

The vast number of medical air conditioning systems to choose from makes it difficult to pick one. Here’s what to look out for:


All air conditioning units can cool your space, but some will do so more efficiently than others.


Again all air con systems can ventilate your space, but some are better suited to certain room layouts.


All new air conditioning units can heat your space. Every system we install has complete climate control.


Some units come with special features and additional functions, such as near silent operation.


The shape, colour and material of the unit can be integrated with your hospitals unique design.


Room size needs matching to power output. Units are mostly wall-mounted, some are on the ceiling or floor.

From a range of over 380 daikin units


We are one of the few medical air conditioning installers in the UK to offer this new breed of air-con. These ducted systems can be installed above healthcare areas by utilising unused loft space. The vents can be very small and embedded in the ceiling, so are the best choice if you do not want a visible unit. Eazyzone is the most cost-effective way to get air conditioning for the whole hospital.

How many rooms?

We can fit as many as you require

1 unit "split system"

If you only want air conditioning installed in one room.

2+ unit "multi-split system"

Heat or cool multiple areas of your hospital with one outdoor unit.

How Does AC Work?

Air conditioning (also called aircon or AC) is made to cool, heat and filter air.  To do this, it extracts air using fans into the indoor “evaporator” unit, where it passes through the filter of the unit, such as a Titanium Apatite Deodorising Air Purification filter (approved by the National Asthma Council). These filters trap most airborne particulates and decompose odours while absorbing and deactivating bacteria, making them perfect for turning stale air into fresh air.

After the air has been filtered, it circulates around coil structures that are heated or refrigerated based on the temperature in the room compared to your desired warmth. This works because the coils pump mixtures of special gasses that turn to and from liquid in order to transfer heat from the indoor unit to the outdoor unit. It is a common misconception that air conditioning takes air in from an outdoor unit and exchanges it through the buildings indoor units. Actually, it is a far more complex process whereby the indoor unit acts as the mouth and lungs of the room, with the outdoor unit acting as a brain that ensures each connected indoor unit is at the proper temperature.

All of this is controlled simply through a wall-mounted thermostat or the Daikin app, which allows remote control from your phone, tablet, car & more.

The Condenser Unit

The outdoor counterpart to your stylish interior device works with your evaporators to keep each room at the ideal temperature. The large fans in these machines quietly ventilate excess heat and cold from the intricate system of liquid and gas filled coils within, maximising efficiency. The power capability, features and more need to be matched with your interior units, so most customers leave selecting the condenser up to our qualified engineers. 

Our experts select the condenser unit that suits your hospital air conditioning needs, so you get to pick how many units you want and where plus the style.

Medical air con running cost

Compared to a standard boiler

On all standard models of commercial air conditioning, the energy efficiency ratio is 1:5, meaning you gain 400% extra energy for every kilowatt you put in.

On a conventional boiler the energy efficiency ratio is 1:0.93, meaning you lose 7% energy for every kilowatt you put in.

7% may not sound like a lot, but if you like to have your heating on during the colder months, it adds up to a lot. 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 of wasted energy every day.

The average cost of 1 kilowatt hour in the UK is 16p, so a boiler wastes £3.84 per day compared to air conditioning your hospital.

Medical Air Conditioning FAQ

Although a medical setting is a closely controlled and monitored environment, it can still be assisted, especially by a long lasting and effective aid as air conditioning for hospitals. The consistent circulation of fresh and clean, filtered air is a beneficial aid in a health context as it stops things such as dust, dirt or illness transmission from being able to settle and accumulate too. Improve the area of a hospital or medical facility and increase the level of comfort and enjoyment for everyone within that area whether it is staff or patients.

Any medical facility will likely have quite large rooms. This is because of the necessary equipment, possible beds for patients and high volume of people who populate a hospital or medical facility on a daily basis. Due to this it is most likely that a room will be subject to having more than one air conditioning unit so that the optimal conditions are met as desired. We can install what is known as a ‘split-system’ which will connect multiple air conditioning units to an outdoor condenser unit. This way it ensures that there is constant access to fresh and clean air and it can be distributed as much as you wish by controlling each individual unit.

Yes air conditioning for hospitals does have the ability to be able to heat as well as cool, something that not everyone knows or realises! As a hospital or medical facility will likely be quite a large place with large rooms and potentially many people contained in each room, this can cause a lot of heat. Therefore, in the summer you want to be able to cool everyone down, so that nurses can work more happily and efficiently and patients are made more comfortable while fighting illness or injury. However, in the winter an air conditioning system can do the opposite and provide quick and impressive heat to a setting. This is done through its connection to a heat pump that allows it to be able to perform this function.

A air conditioning split-system has to be individually tailored to each specific environment so that it ensures satisfaction and function with its performance. As such, we cannot therefore estimate the total price for the units and our hospital air conditioning installation service. However, with Direct Air Conditioning because our quotes are tailored and personalised to your specific request, we are able to give you the most competitive price for what we consider to be the best air conditioning units on the market, manufactured by Daikin.
