Life With Living Room Air Con

Welcome to new realms of comfort

Create utopia

Whether your living room is a cosy nook or one of many grand entertaining rooms, there’s only so much comfort cushions can bring.

By installing living room air conditioning you, your family, friends and guests will enter a new world of comfort. Tailor the heat and humidity to your ideal environment all year round, whilst relaxing safe in the knowledge that you are breathing fresh, clean air. The extraction of particulates from the air makes this a wise choice for pet owners or those who suffer from allergies such as hay fever. If you have a respiratory condition, you may need lounge air conditioning to breath correctly.

Imagine, before driving home in the snow on Christmas Eve, after a hard years work, you open the app on your phone and see your family have the AC on already, keeping it at the normal temperature. You like it a bit hotter, so you take control of the system and turn up the heat. You smile the whole way back as you picture your family realising your almost there, your kids rushing to quickly wrap your presents before you arrive home.

Choosing your air con unit

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 living room air conditioning needs, so you get to pick how many units you want and where plus the style. You can find out more about different condenser units by using the button below or contact us and our experts will do the work for you.

Living room air con running cost

Compared to a standard boiler

On all standard models of living room 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 living room air conditioning.

Air Conditioning For Living Room FAQ

When choosing what brand to go with for your living room air conditioning installation it can seem like a big decision, and it is, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be a hard one. Everyone is the same in wanting to have and to know that you got the best possible option for the money that it cost and with the expense of air conditioning you certainly don’t want to be disappointed. That is why choosing Daikin is the best choice you can make. With Daikin, you get state-of-the-art air conditioning units that look good and boast innovative features without breaking the bank either!

It’s not about the size of the air conditioning unit but about how much air it cools or heats, at least that’s how we think the saying goes! With a Daikin unit, whether it is the Ururu, Sarara, Perfera, Emura, or even the new Stylish, you get a compact and nicely designed unit that really packs a punch. Despite their small size, these units are compiled of the best, high-quality components so that it gives results that will blow you away, and it will keep doing so for years to come (with regular maintenance).

Between the various different manufacturers and entire ranges of different models in all shapes and sizes of air conditioning units, there are plenty of features and functions to have you completely lost when deciding out of all of them. A good portion of air conditioning manufacturers are already well-established and recognised household names including Mitsubishi, Hitachi, LG and Samsung. Each different manufacturer will feature a different feature or function that supposedly makes their model better than the rest. However, for the best all-around performance that is as reliable as it is impressive, as well as a host of innovative functions that show Daikin not only to be industry giants but also pioneers too!

In our opinion, the 5 best air conditioning units can all be found on this website! The Emura, Sarara, Perfera, Ururu and Stylish all perform slightly different roles for air conditioning and are each suited to certain environments. We know for a fact that the air conditioning units that Daikin produce and that we fit for living room air conditioning installation are the best available. We can fit units by any brand but we choose to install Daikin so our customers can see just how good they are too.

There are certain variables that can contribute to a change in price for lounge ac installation. It can depend on which unit it is that you would like to have installed. Out of the Daikin range, each unit performs specific functions and can be more suited to certain, specific environments. Despite this there will be slight differences in their individual cost which will be outlined. If you are wanting a unit installed by another manufacturer this is something that we can handle for you. However, depending on the necessary labour required to install different brands and any differences between the installation processes may incur extra costs.

Still confused? Our experts can guide you through the process and help you choose the right system for your home
