Ceiling Cassette Mounted
Air Conditioning

Ceiling cassette units are best-suited to rooms with a false or suspended ceiling and are generally used in offices and shops. Because they are hidden within the ceiling void with only a thin facia visible, they do not intrude into the office space resulting in a loss of room height.

These units have the unique advantage of being able to blow cool or warm air in four different directions a single centrally-mounted ceiling cassette can cool a shop or office area of up to 95 square meters.

The Air Conditioning Company can supply wall mounted units from all the major brands including Daikin, Mitsubishi, Gree, Fujitsu, LG, Panasonic, Toshiba and Hitachi. We are also the only air conditioning installer in the UK that offers a 10 year warranty on all our installations.

Things to Consider When Choosing
Air Conditioning for Your Shop or Restaurant

Our surveyors will take you through every step of the process simply and clearly but if you want to do some research beforehand here's everything you need to know:

Ceiling Cassette

Ceiling mounted 'cassette' units are very popular in modern offices.Although they are slightly more expensive than wall units, ceiling'cassettes' are almost entirely hidden within a suspended ceilingand are therefore more discreet and aesthetically pleasing; all thatis visible is an almost-flush facia panel.

They alsohave the advantage of providing four-way air flow so they are idealfor large offices where multiple areas must receive balancedcooling.

Heating Function:
In cold winters we areoften called out to repair systems that our competitors haveinstalled. One very common mistake is to under-specify the heatingelement of an air conditioning system. This can lead to the systemfreezing and as a result leaving you without any heating for youroffice at all.

When our surveyor comes to your officealways let him know if the proposed air conditioning system willalso be your primary or supplementary source of heating.

All the air conditioners that we install also provide anextremely efficient heating function. Indeed, they are so efficientthat when used for domestic applications the government charges just5% VAT.

Types of Split Systems for Offices

There are four types of Split-System Air Conditioners used inoffices. The decision on which to use is fairly straightforward anddepends on office size, layout and future plans:

Single-splitair conditioners have one internal cooling unit and one externalcondenser box. These are the most basic and common systemsinstalled. They are ideal for cooling one single room and areusually the most cost-effective option.

They are alsoused in situations where you need to have multiple air conditionerscontrolled individually (e.g. heating an office in winter whilststill requiring cooling in a server room).The more single splits youinstall the more external condensers you require. If external spaceis at a premium then please see the other options in this menu.

Types of Split Systems for Offices

There are four types of Split-System Air Conditioners used inoffices. The decision on which to use is fairly straightforward anddepends on office size, layout and future plans:

Twin/TripleSplit-System:

These systems are ideal for largeropen-plan offices. Whilst they can have two, three or four internalcooling units they only have one external condenser box. This meansthat less space is taken up on the building exterior.They aretypically used for cooling one large single area and operate fromthe same control panel. It is therefore not possible to control theinternal units individually. These units are not suitable forcooling multiple rooms where different temperatures arerequired.When selecting these units for an open plan office it'simportant to consider whether you are likely to partition the roomin the future. If partitioning is likely or you are looking forindividual cooling control then you should consider a Single-Split or a Multi-Split System.

Types of Split Systems for Offices

There are four types of Split-System Air Conditioners used inoffices. The decision on which to use is fairly straightforward anddepends on office size, layout and future plans:

Multi-SplitSystem:

A Multi-Split System uses multiple indoorcooling units (the amount is dependent on power requirements and thebrand chosen) and one outdoor condenser box.

Theadvantage of Multi-Splits is that the internal cooling units can beindividually controlled. If you are using it to cool multipleoffices, this means that one unit can be off while the others areon, and each individual person can set it to their requiredtemperature. Please note that the internal cooling units must all beon the same mode, therefore it is not possible to cool one room andheat another (please look at single-splits).

Types of Split Systems for Offices

The decision on which type of split system to install is fairlystraightforward but depends on planning permission and how manyoffices you are looking to cool. Here are the options:

Water Cooled System:

These systemsare exclusively used in situations where you cannot have an externalcondenser box, usually due to planning permission. Rather thanreleasing the heat to the outside world like traditional airconditioners (via a condenser box), Water-Cooled Air Conditionershave an internal unit connected to the mains water. Cold mains wateris pumped through the system keeping it cool, allowing the internalair conditioner to run efficiently.

Ceiling Cassette

Ceiling mounted 'cassette' units are another good option for shops and restaurants. Although they are slightly more expensive than wall units, ceiling 'cassettes' are almost entirely hidden within a suspended ceiling and are therefore more discreet and aesthetically pleasing; all that is visible is an almost-flush facia panel.

They also have the advantage of providing an even four-way air flow.

Heating Function:
In cold winters we are often called out to repair systems that our competitors have installed. One very common mistake is to under-specify the heating element of an air conditioning system. This can lead to the system freezing and as a result leaving you without any heating for your office at all.

When our surveyor comes to your office always let him know if the proposed air conditioning system will also be your primary or supplementary source of heating.

Types of Split Systems for Shops & Restaurants

There are four main types of air conditioning system used for commercial premises:

Single-split air conditioners have one internal cooling unit and one external condenser box. These are the most basic and common systems installed. They are ideal for cooling one single room and are usually the most cost-effective option.

They are also used in situations where you need to have multiple air conditioners controlled individually (e.g. heating an office in winter whilst still requiring cooling in a server room).
The more single splits you install the more external condensers you require. If external space is at a premium then please see the other options in this menu.

Types of Split Systems for Shops & Restaurants

There are four main types of air conditioning system used for commercial premises:

Multi-Split System:

These systems are ideal for larger open-plan shops/restaurants. Whilst they can have two, three or four internal cooling units they only have one external condenser box. This means that less space is taken up on the building exterior.

They are typically used for cooling one large single area and operate from the same control panel. It is therefore not possible to control the internal units individually. These units are not suitable for cooling multiple rooms where different temperatures are required.

When selecting these units for an open plan area it’s important to consider whether you are likely to partition the room in the future. If partitioning is likely or you are looking for individual cooling control then you should consider a Single-Split System.

Types of Split Systems for Shops & Restaurants

There are four main types of air conditioning system used for commercial premises:

Water Cooled System:

Many commercial buildings in the UK and especially in London do not have planning permission to place condenser boxes on their exterior walls or roofs. In these cases, Water-Cooled Air Conditioners are the ideal solution as the entire system is located within the property.

Rather than releasing the heat to the outside world like traditional air conditioners (via a condenser box), Water-Cooled Air Conditioners have an internal unit connected to the mains water. Cold water is pumped through the system keeping it cool allowing the internal air conditioners to run efficiently.
