Air Conditioning Unit Installation

Find professional aircon installers and compare free quotes!

One of the best ways to ensure your health and comfort during the summer months is with the right air conditioning. Aircon engineers can help you choose the right system for your home or office so you won’t have to dread a Summer heat wave. Business and residential unit installations are both available from the trusted providers in our network.

Health Benefits of Installing Air Conditioning

Many times, people only think of air conditioning as being something that makes life easier. The truth is that it also provides a number of health benefits as well. People with heart or lung disorders can benefit a great deal from having an efficient air conditioning system. That’s because exposure to the heat could increase their risk of heart attack or make it difficult to breathe. Allergy sufferers can benefit from air conditioning because dry air tends to increase the number of flare-ups. The risk of heat stroke greatly increases when indoor air temperatures are too high, and a building that is too warm can make sleep difficult, resulting in a lack of energy among occupants.

Benefits to your Business

If you’re a business owner, the benefits of commercial air conditioning can’t be stressed enough. People will be less likely to patronise your establishment if the indoor temperature isn’t kept at a comfortable level. Your employees can also have difficulty performing their daily routines if they are uncomfortable. This can result in lower productivity and a reduction in the quality of work. Workers could also be more likely to become sick when there is poor indoor air quality. When all these things are considered, it makes sense to ensure that air conditioning units are working properly in your commercial establishment.

Things to Consider when Choosing a Unit

There are a number of air conditioning systems on the market, so knowing which one to choose can sometimes be overwhelming. Quite a bit of difference can be found from one manufacturer to the next in terms of quality. Generally speaking, you should buy the best system you can afford because it will typically last longer and require fewer repairs. Aside from the quality of the unit, some other things to think about when choosing air con are:

  • The efficiency rating of the equipment-a higher number means greater energy savings
  • Type of warranty that’s available
  • Size needed, and this is figured by performing a load calculation using the measurements of your structure
  • Whether or not the unit will also help control humidity, especially in areas where a great deal of moisture accumulates
  • If the air conditioning unit can also act as a heat pump during the Winter. This might be a better choice for new construction, since only one system will need to be installed.
  • The ability of the unit to filter allergens and dust particles from indoor air
  • Availability of parts should repairs become needed
  • How much noise the equipment makes when operating
  • Type of routine maintenance required to keep it in peak working condition

Common Air Conditioning Issues

common air conditioning issues

Although today’s air conditioning units are built to last, things can and do go wrong. The most common air conditioning-related issues experienced by homeowners include all the following:

  • Failure to maintain a cool temperature
  • Air conditioner not coming on as expected
  • Warm air coming from registers
  • Air conditioner cycling on and off rapidly
  • No power to the air conditioner
  • Leaks around the air conditioner unit itself
  • Frozen condenser units

Air Conditioning Unit Installation Costs

Air con units vary in cost based upon their efficiency rating and size. Commercial applications are typically more expensive than those designed for residential use. The quality of the system can also play a role in the overall cost. It's possible air conditioning installation can be more expensive if existing duct work is not in place or needs to be revamped. If a building’s electrical system is not equipped to handle an air conditioning unit, it may cost more to upgrade it. Local building regulations and the layout of a structure can also affect the total estimate.

Your air conditioning questions answered

Where can AC units be installed?

Most areas can benefit from new air conditioning installations including homes, shops, factories and offices.

How long does installation take?

Installation of most ac units including split and single applications is an easy process and will likely only take a couple of days from start to finish.

What does AC unit installation cost?

That will depend on the size of the unit that you wish to install. In general, A/C units are going to cost between £1,800 and £4,000. There may be additional costs for labour, duct installation, or any additional parts that may be required. Getting quotes from local A/C engineers is the best way to get an accurate estimate on installation costs.

What worked better, central air or window units?

A/C window units will only work efficiently in small spaces. They're perfect for small travel trailers, single rooms, or studio apartments. For anything larger, a central air unit is going to be the best choice. They promote proper airflow, help to filter our airborne particulates, and keep costs down by providing cool air to every room.

How can I determine which efficiency rating is best for my building?

By using an efficiency calculator to compare the cost of operating different models. An efficiency calculation can also be performed by any of the experienced HVAC engineers in our extended network.

Is servicing my aircon unit considered important?

Yes, getting your air conditioning unit serviced is vital in order to keep it running smoothly, efficiently and even safely. It helps to avoid repairs which could be costly and keeps your unit in peak condition. Servicing intervals will likely vary between manufacturers.

How often should I schedule maintenance for my air conditioner?

Although different manufacturers have their own recommendations, HVAC experts often recommend servicing your unit at least once per year. This allows engineers to look your system over for potential problems and repair them before they become catastrophic.

Should I choose a wall mounted or portable unit?

Typically, a portable unit will be used for either smaller domestic rooms or temporary solutions, therefore if you have need for a permanent installation or are cooling a larger area then a wall mounted unit will be the correct choice due to the increase in size.
