Kitchens are usually well ventilated by oven hoods, but sometimes that’s not enough. Plus, an oven hood can’t do much in terms of climate control.

By installing kitchen air conditioning, you can cook, eat and entertain guests at an ideal temperature and humidity. Kitchens are the hottest spaces in homes, but you can fix that without needing to open windows for insects and air pollution to ruin your culinary experience.

Imagine it’s Christmas day and the whole family is round. The cooking is going well but it’s just so hot and stuffy, you are getting mad at everyone. Suddenly you remember and turn your kitchen air con on. Within minutes the temperature and humidity has returned to a comfortable level, and you sing and dance your way around the kitchen with justified enthusiasm. Nothing is burned, everything tastes perfect and whilst everyone toasts your amazing cooking skills, you silently thank your air conditioning unit.

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:


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 homes unique design.


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.

Kitchen air con running cost

Compared to a standard boiler

On all standard models of kitchen 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 kitchen air conditioning.
