Cool You UK: How Much Does Air Conditioning For Flats Cost To Run?

How Much Does An Internal Air Conditioning System Cost To Run In Your Apartment?

One key question we always get asked at Cool You is about cost. All our clients want to know how much our air conditioning for flats cost to run.

It’s very difficult to give an exact cost, but our technical director Savva does his best to talk you through it in this week’s Youtube video:

There are so many factors that affect your space, which ultimately affect the cost.

First, there’s solar gain. How much heat is coming in through the windows? Are you in direct path of the sun? If you are, that means you’ll have to run the system more often.

Second, you have to consider the occupancy levels. The more people in a space means the more heat that’s generated. Typically, we generate 100 watts per person at rest. To give you an idea how much that is, if you had 10 people around for a party, that’s 1,000 watts of heat generated per hour.

Third: what’s the room being used for? If it’s the kitchen or open-plan living area, then the heat from the kitchen will generate loads of heat to the rest of the room.

The fourth factor is the size of the room. The larger the space, the more cooling required.

Compared to a fan heater in the winter, our cooling systems are cheaper to run. However, it is hard to say exactly what the cost is, because it depends on all of the above. However, what we can say is that our air conditioning for flats are the most energy efficient available, and we will answer all questions honestly, once we know your likely cooling requirements.
