Ducted
Air Conditioning

Ducted air conditioning is probably the quietest and most versatile of all air conditioning systems. A ducted system is often the most practical choice for larger areas requiring cooling and air distribution which is likely to be beyond the reach of normal ‘split type’ units. This system is designed for areas with suspended or false ceilings.

We supply all the major brands including Daikin, Mitsubishi, LG, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sanyo and Hitachi. The discreet grilles can be located almost anywhere allowing them to blend in with interior décor. These grilles facilitate uniform temperature distribution and air flow to larger or partitioned areas.

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:

Ducted

Ducted air conditioning systems are usually the most expensiveoption; however, they are also the most aesthetically pleasing asthe duct-work and internal units are hidden entirely within asuspended ceiling with only small grilles remaining visible.

Installing a ducted system is best undertaken as part of abuilding project; however, if you have a suspended ceiling then theycan be retrofitted without major disturbance.

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 Homes

The decision on which type of split system to install is fairlystraightforward but depends on planning permission and how manyrooms 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.

Single Room No Outside Box 

Ducted System for Shops or Restaurants

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.

Ducted System for Shops or Restaurants

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.
