THE INSTALLATION OF AN INTERNAL DC INVERTER WATER COOLED AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM WITHIN AN APARTMENT IN A GRADE II LISTED BUILDING, ORCHARD LOFTS IN EALING
This apartment within a converted Victorian warehouse in Ealing was previously a photographic studio. The building features a restored central atrium which benefits from glass roof lights and, whilst very impressive, creates a great deal of heat.
To alleviate this, the owner wanted air conditioning but being a Grade II listed building, the owners were not allowed to fit a traditional external condenser box, nor were they allowed to drill any holes in the external walls of the building.
The client wished to air condition the sizeable open plan kitchen/living room. The only solution available to them was our internal system. This type of solution allows everything to be retained within the apartment.
As part of the installation, a water-cooled internal condenser was installed in a kitchen utility cupboard that houses the apartment’s hot water boiler and services. A quiet and energy-efficient DC inverter high wall unit was installed adjacent to the cupboard, serving the open plan kitchen/living room.
Our engineers connected the refrigerant pipework between the condenser and the room unit with no disruption, and all works were completed within a day.
No planning permission was required to fit our air conditioning systems in this apartment.
For this project, we installed:
1 x 7kw (24000 Btu) water-cooled DC Inverter condenser
Open Plan Living Room / Kitchen
1 x 7kw (24,000 Btu) DC Inverter high wall unit
