Finally, air conditioning ensures you are breathing clean, fresh air while you sleep, which can have a huge, long-term, positive impact on your health.

Imagine it’s summer, mid-heatwave, and you have a big day at work tomorrow, it’s the deadline for an important project.

You awake the next morning with a spring in your step, ready to seize the day. Your nights sleep fuels your projects success, landing you a promotion.

The Best Bedroom AC Unit

The vast number of bedroom 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

Most air conditioning units can heat your space. If you want this feature, make sure your unit is capable.

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.

Bedroom air con running cost

Compared to a standard boiler

On all standard models of bedroom 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 bedroom air conditioning.

Bedroom Air Conditioning Installation faq

Yes. This is why it is important to choose the right air conditioning for your bedroom, so you get one that is nice and quiet in case you are a light sleeper. One of our air con experts, Vicky, finds she sleeps much better with our Daikin Emura air conditioning above her bed, running all night. She likes it set to 18.5 degrees so she can snuggle up in her duvet, but her partner likes it a little cooler, so he rolls the duvet back a bit and they both wake up with a spring in their step every day. In fact, everyone in our office that has air con in the bedroom is noticeably full of energy, getting the sleep they used to dream of.

Due to this there are constantly new models of bedroom air conditioning units being created by a whole host of different manufacturers. However, Daikin are certainly one of the quietest air conditioning unit manufacturers on the market.
