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

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 loft 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 today and our experts will do the hard work for you.

Loft air con running cost

Compared to a standard boiler

On all standard models of loft 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 loft air conditioning.

Air Conditioning For Loft FAQ

Because each house is different, so is the price. Contact us for a free quote to find out how much air conditioning your loft could cost.

A loft can be a stuffy and sweaty, sticky environment that collects all of the heat that is produced and trapped within a property so that it can feel like when you are in there you are slowly cooking in a very large oven. If a loft doesn’t have any kind of windows or skylights then the air circulation will be very limited and this will also lead to the environment being stuffy and unappealing. The opposite of this couldn’t be more true once you have had loft air conditioning installed.

There are regulations regarding loft conversions that people are required to follow. These can also include air conditioning or alternative ventilation for the benefit of maintaining good health. By having access to loft air con it will ensure that the air remains circulated and fresh so that it is not uncomfortable or prone to becoming dusty either. A loft conversion is certainly a place that could become inflicted with mould due to poor air circulation, allowing it to become a hazard to health through the transference of mould spores.

A wall-mounted air conditioning unit works by being connected to an outdoor condenser unit. This could be as a sole unit in a property or as a part of a split system. Regardless of the setup, the way that an air conditioning unit produces the fabulous cool new perspective for your loft is to have fresh, outdoor air drawn in through the condenser unit. After having been cooled it is then circulated through the desired unit to provide that specific setting with cool and refreshing air. This is how a wall-mounted air conditioning unit works to execute the process of providing refreshing air to your loft conversion.
