We are exceptionally proud of our website and we jealously protect our original material not least we have spent hundreds of expensive man-hours creating what we believe is far and away the best air conditioning website on the internet. The design and content have been created in-house by our own design team helped by those wonderful guys at the world’s best design agency (IMHO) Fishfinger.me.

– When we find that a website has ‘lifted’ our copyright material without having written to us first requesting such permission, we shall, in the first instance, write to them asking them either to pay our charges within 72hrs or to take down the wording from that third party website until such time that payment has been made.

– We offer third party websites a 30% discount off our published charges to those website owners who have contacted us and paid our fees before using our material.
– In the event that a third party website owner takes down our copyright material, please be mindful that our full fees are payable in any event.
