White Wall Mounted Air Conditioner installed in a Loft Conversion

All About Air Conditioners for Loft Conversions

Loft conversions are commonplace across the UK and in terms of temperature they are the most extreme rooms in the home. They are either boiling hot in the summer orĀ freezing cold in the winter. Fortunately, having an air conditioner installed in the loft completely solves this age old problem. Not only do air conditioners provide effective cooling they are also extremely efficient heaters.

We only install the best quality air conditioners that can deal with the temperature extremes of the loft. Every unit we install is ‘whisper quiet’ so if the conversion is an office or bedroom you can work or sleep in peace!

We provide a free site survey no matter how big or small the installation. All surveys are carried out by our experienced air conditioning surveyors who can quickly advise on the ideal AC unit for your loft.

Ideal Systems for Loft Conversions: Low Wall-Mounted Air Conditioners

The majority of lofts have pitched roofs, and do not have many full-sized walls; in these cases, we sometimesĀ need to recommend specialist AC units.

Low wall mounted air conditioners are ideal for loft conversions insofar that they are placed at a low level on the wall which usually solves the problem of the sloping or low ceiling. They are more expensive than traditional high wall units, but customers often choose them because, like radiators, they are placed out of their line of sight. One unit is usually sufficient to provide both cooling and heating to a loft, but very large loft areas might require two units (e.g. when the loft of a five bedroom house has been converted).

Our surveyors will take the layout of the room into consideration when choosing a location for the air conditioner in order for you to get the most effective cooling/heating.

Wall-Mounted Air Conditioners for Lofts

Wall mounted air conditioners can also be used in lofts which have higher ceilings or at least one taller wall. They are cheaper than other air conditioners and, like their low-wall counterparts, they are also easy to retrofit in rooms without the need for redecoration. They are long, thin and placed at a high level on the wall.

There are also premium models of wall units (like the Gree Moda, Daikin Emura and Mitsubishi Zen units). They are a little more expensive; however, they are superb looking units.

Our surveyors will happily talk you through all the options available to ensure you get exactly what you are looking for.
