Knowing that we’ve helped you find the best solution r air conditioning your apartment is the aim of the game here.

We can quickly identify exactly what’s possible in your circumstances, what it actually is that you need, where everything should go and importantly, what sort of budget you’re looking at.

Portable air conditioning units

If you live in a small space, perhaps all you need is a simple portable unit.

These units are cheap and can be easily installed in a single space that requires cooling.

These units plug into a standard electrical outlet and can typically cool a small room.

There’s no disruptive installation process with a portable unit, however, they can take up much-needed space in the room you are cooling. Plus, they are noisy and don’t blend in with their surroundings.

Most importantly, because a portable unit needs to be vented to the outside, a window has to be opened to remove the hot air at all times.

This isn’t ideal if you live in a ground floor flat and need to keep windows closed for security reasons.

Through-the-wall air conditioning

Alternatively, you might be best off with a through-the-wall unit, designed to air condition small rooms.

These units must be fitted on an internal, outside facing wall.

They require holes made to the exterior property, so if you live in a listed building or have strict planning permissions, you are unlikely to be allowed this option.

Conventional air conditioning

The same can be said for conventional air conditioning.

These are the best solution if you are allowed to have an outside condenser unit on a wall, roof, or patio.

However, most London apartment blocks won’t allow them as management and planning permissions are required to place the external condenser outside.

While these units are cheaper than fully-internal solutions, in the long run, they might not necessarily be more cost-effective when other factors such as scaffolding, length of pipe run and future maintenance access are considered.

Internal air conditioning

In most cases, you have probably already considered the options above only to be told that you are not allowed a conventional air conditioning unit.

That’s why our fully internal air conditioning solutions for apartments is the ideal solution.

A fully internal air conditioning solution offers exactly the same quality and no compromise performance as a conventional system without the need for an outdoor condenser unit.

The difference is that it’s fully contained within your property, eliminating the need for any external penetrations, permissions and planning consents that can sometimes make getting air conditioning a major headache and expense.

If you are looking to air condition a finished apartment, these systems result in minimal or no disruption or redecoration required.

Cool You: How they work

Cool You’s internal systems have two components: a wall-mount and a condenser box. The wall unit is mounted in the room that you’d like to be cool.

That unit is connected to a condenser, which is located in a concealed spot in your flat, such as a utility space or boiler room. These two units are connected with refrigeration pipework that can be hidden in cavity walls or in the ceiling.

The system works exactly the same as a conventional system with an outside condenser. The only difference is that an external condenser uses the air outside to dissipate the heat.

With an internal condenser, the only way to remove the heat is to use mains cold water connected to the concealed condenser only to take the heat away.

Everything is done internally within your property with no external box to worry about, making it the ideal option for London apartment owners.

Whichever air conditioning product you require, we’ll guide you every step of the way to ensure you get exactly what you need.

Site surveys

We carry out detailed site surveys to make sure we know which solution works best for your property.

During these visits, Savva will walk you through how the solution will work and the best place to put it.

If we visit your property to conduct a full and thorough site survey and we feel that an alternative solution to what we have previously discussed will give you better results, we will use our years of expertise in this field to guide you towards that solution.

We won’t start work until we’re 100% sure it’s the best product for you.

At the end of the day, we know that good customer service means selling you the product you actually need, not which one might make our company a quick buck.
