Fully air conditioned homes are the latest interior design trend in a world increasingly overwhelmed by pollution, airborne diseases and global warming causing colder, freezing winters and hotter, unbearable summers. What was once only available to the wealthiest UK households is now available for you and your family: the ability to control the environment of each room to within 0.5 degrees. We spend huge parts of our lives at home, so we should not have to settle for boilers and fans pushing stale air around.

By installing air conditioning in your whole house you can keep your home well ventilated and the perfect temperature, whether you want your bedroom cooler in summer or your home gym warmer in winter, with air conditioning for your whole home. Keep the family happy by providing the perfect sleeping temperature in every bedroom, with clean, fresh air pumped in and stale air pumped out without having to open windows and let in pests. The benefits for each room are massive, so we have written individual pages for each room of your house, where you can find out more.

Choosing your air con units

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

Cooling

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

Ventilation

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

Heating

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

Features

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

Design

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

Space

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

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 houses air conditioning needs, so you get to pick how many units you want and where plus the style.

Whole home air con running cost

Compared to a standard boiler

On all standard models of home 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 whole home air conditioning.

Cost of running home air con

Compared to a standard hot tub

The cost of running AC units throughout your house depends on your system, because each is unique. However we can estimate these costs based on our experience in the industry. To make it even easier to understand, we have compared the cost of air conditioning various room sizes to the cost of running an average modern hot tub.

For less than the price of running 1 hot tub, you could run air con in 4 small rooms:

A whole home air con system is what is referred to as a “split-system” air conditioning arrangement. What this refers to is that you are able to have multiple indoor air conditioning units (up to 5) placed in different rooms throughout the house. These units are then connected together by ductwork to a outdoor unit that will draw fresh air into the property, before it is then circulated accordingly. A feature of having this type of system installed in your property is that you can tailor the temperature of each room to exactly how you want it by individually controlling each separate unit.

This can be done and there are systems that are produced that will not require extensive or labour-intensive ductwork to be installed. A ductless air conditioning is a HVAC system that cools a building in the same way that central air would. Central air refers to an air conditioning system that will regulate airflow and temperature from a single unit location. Although this air won’t then be distributed throughout the ducts that it would if it were a typical whole house air conditioning system, a ductless system will still use a series of tubing and units within different rooms to be able to circulate the refreshing air. This leaves you with unsightly and unattractive tubing that you won’t have to put up with when having a Daikin split-system installed for your house.

There is no exact answer as to how much whole home air con would cost to run. Unfortunately, there are too many variables, such as the number of units that you have installed or how much you use your air conditioning, that giving a precise answer on this becomes an impossible task! However, one thing that we know for certain is that air conditioning is substantially cheaper than other traditional or conventional means of heating or cooling. This is due to the fact that by having comprehensive control with air conditioning, you can control each environment separately instead of spending money on heating or cooling the entire property.


It requires a heat pump to be able to do so but a home air conditioning system will heat your home as well as keeping you cool. The heat pump facilitates the extraction of low temperature energy before then increasing the temperature. This will then circulate the heated air and keep you nice and cosy. A heat pump has been proven to be up to 5 times more efficient than a traditional boiler as well, so you’re saving money and getting warmer quicker.
