Air Conditioning For Flats

Installing air conditioning in your flat

More and more people are opting to install air conditioning in their home since it has become more affordable and more widely available. As our climate continues to change, and temperatures can be unpredictable, it can be more cost effective and energy efficient to have an air conditioning system.

In a flat, especially on higher floors, big windows can make the space uncomfortably hot in the summer. Flats can also be poorly ventilated, due to being one of many smaller units in one large building. If you live in a built-up area, noise and air pollution often mean you don’t want to open your windows to get air circulating. Air conditioning is an ideal solution to these problems.

Why install air conditioning in my flat?

  • Consistent climate control – You decide what temperature your flat is at all times, and the air conditioning will keep it at that number, ensuring that you’re comfortable year-round. There are also options for air purifying and humidity control.
  • Cost effective – Because flats are smaller spaces, you may only need one or two interior units to effectively air conditioning the whole home.
  • Cohesive designs – A split-wall system is the most popular for a residential property, and the interior units come in a range of styles, sizes and shapes, making it easy to blend your units in with existing décor. 
  • Space saving – Living in a flat means making the most of a smaller space. Wall-mounted interior units can be placed up and out of the way of furniture, taking up less space than a fan or radiator would.
  • Energy efficient – Once an air conditioning system reaches the desired temperature, it will power itself off until needed again. It can also be set to only run when the room is occupied, or at certain times, lowering power consumption and household bills.
  • Boosts property values – If you own your flat, investing in an air conditioning system can make your property worth more.

Which air conditioning system should I use for my flat?

A split or multi-split system will more than suffice for a smaller space like a flat. These are the simplest and most popular types for residential property, and can be very affordable. As well as the above benefits, the systems are quiet and only require one outdoor unit, making them minimally invasive to neighbours and adjacent buildings.

Before installing any air conditioning system, always check if you need planning permission or have to adhere to any building rules. Even if you own your flat, the overall building may have stipulations that you must follow, particularly concerning the outdoor elements. If you’re unsure about your options, contact your local authority and an experienced air conditioning company for advice.
