Air Conditioning FAQ About London Apartment Installations

Heat is essential for our well-being, but an environment that is too hot can cause some serious health complications.

To avoid this, invest in an air conditioning solution that will provide good air quality and regulate temperature.

Cool You’s signature fully internal air conditioning solutions are the perfect option for London apartment owners looking to cool down in the summer.

If you’re looking for a new air conditioner for your apartment, Cool You UK can help. Let’s take a closer look at some common air conditioning FAQs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Conditioning (FAQs)

1. Could a water-cooled air conditioning unit cause damage to my apartment?

People fear that the water from the unit might leak and damage their property.

However, this will not happen. Water doesn’t flow to any other part of your property. The water is contained and restricted to the condenser box.

This is the only place where we attach a water supply.

2. Where will the internal condenser be installed?

When completing an internal condenser installation, we arrange to conduct a site survey.

Savva, our managing director at Cool You, or one of our team members, conducts the site surveys. They will gauge your requirements and help you choose the most efficient and cost-effective solution.

Another important thing. We will identify the correct position for installing the condenser in your apartment.

We can place air conditioning units in one or multiple rooms. The condenser can be tucked away from sight under the sink, in a utility cupboard, or even in the laundry area.

We’ll ensure it’s concealed discreetly and won’t take much space.

3. Will there be any mess?

Nobody wants a mess being left behind after a repair or installation. Our installation team take great care when doing the work to minimise the disruption to your apartment.

When we complete installation, we can place condensers inside utility cupboards. All pipes are neatly concealed in the ceiling.

As a bonus, since our internal solutions are completely inside your property, our installation won’t disrupt your neighbours.

4. How long do air conditioning installations typically take?

A standard installation will take one working day. However, the number of rooms and the intricacy of the installation will influence the time it takes to finish the job.

The team usually start the installation as early as possible (between 7 am and 8 am). We are typically finished by 4 pm.

5. Is planning permission required for air conditioning solutions without an outside condenser?

Everything is internally placed. Therefore, no planning permission is needed from the local council.

However, we advise customers to read their lease or freehold agreement. If you are in any doubt, you should seek clarification from your landlord or freehold agent.

We also advise that you check with the management team of your apartment block to see if there are any restrictions within the lease.

6. What kind of buildings can you install air conditioning into?

We can install units in residential apartments. These include new buildings and grade 2, as well as listed buildings and conservation areas.

We have also installed air conditioning units in residential loft conversions and small commercial spaces like offices, shops and medical centres.

8. Can you advise me on the running costs of internal air conditioning systems?

According to Savva, it’s challenging to provide the exact costs of running the system. We should be able to offer an accurate overview of the costs once we know your exact requirements.

However, you should bear in mind the following factors:

  1. The size of the room. The bigger the space, the more it will take to cool;
  2. The number of people inside the room;
  3. The heat coming in from outside;
  4. The functions of the room. For example, the kitchen will generate more heat than the living area.

9. Are these solutions beneficial to sufferers of hay fever or chest problems?

Yes, they are. Our systems can filter air as it is being cooled and dehumidified. Specific advice will be given depending on your condition.

10. How long can I expect my air conditioning unit to be installed after ordering?

After ordering, we always try to fit within your timescale. This can depend on how many rooms there are to be air-conditioned.

11. How much warranty do air conditioning systems come with?

Each internal air conditioning solution has a full 5-year parts and labour warranty. This is subject to you following our planned maintenance contract. This is the best warranty on the market.

12 Can I see an example of your work?

Absolutely! You could even look at the recently completed project at a high-end apartment block in London. Savva explains in the video below:

If you send us a message, we can give you the address.

Because we installed a unit in the concierge area, you’re welcome to take a look at the installation. You can experience the benefits for yourself.

The concierge is there from 8.30 am to 6 pm and will happily talk to you about the installation. Hopefully, he’ll be able to explain just how beneficial it is!
