Now that the sun is shining bright, many London apartment owners are stuck in humid flats lacking ventilation. And they’re all probably wondering the same thing: should I get air conditioning?
The answer to that question is yes, you should! But there are a few things you should consider before investing in a cooling system for your London apartment.
Cool You’s fully internal air con for London flats stand out from the competition, but before taking the plunge and purchasing, Savva discusses the seven things you need to factor into your decision:
These are the 7 things you need to consider before buying an internal air con for London flats:
1. Planning Restrictions
If you live in an apartment building or a listed property, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to make penetrations to the exterior. This means a conventional system won’t work for you.
Our air conditioning systems are completely internal, meaning everything is contained within your property. Generally, no planning permissions are required when installing one of our systems, making them the ideal situation for London apartment owners and those who live in a listed building.
2. The Size of your Room
The size of the space you are trying to air condition has to be considered when installing air conditioning. Not only can it affect the cost and efficiency of your unit, it’s also a big factor in what kind of system you’ll need.
Here at Cool You, we have over 12 years of experience installing our internal air con for London flats. During a free site survey, we’ll size your space accordingly so that your room’s air conditioning is comfortable as well as practical.
3. Design/ Aesthetic
If you’re someone that loves design, then it’s important to consider how an air conditioner will fit into your carefully curated decor. Our wall-mounted internal air conditioning systems have been carefully designed so that they blend in with your flat. They’re sleek and white, with no branding on display.
If you’re doing a refurbishment, we can also install a concealed ducted system that has a linear grill instead of a wall mount. This will blend in more with your existing decor.
Much like the size of your room, the location of the system is very important and can have a large impact on its performance and energy efficiency when running.
We will always try to position systems so it is aesthetically pleasing and will perfectly cool your space whilst using the least energy possible.
Air conditioning is definitely an investment, especially if you want a system that continues to work well for years to come. Doing the maths and working out how much it will cost is a must. Not only should you factor in the price of the unit and installation, but you should consider the cost per month as well as upkeep.
When it comes to the cost of our internal air con for London flats, we are 100% clear from the beginning what our prices are, so you can buy in complete peace of mind. We’ve also kept our prices the same for the last six years.
