Ducted Air Conditioner In Lounge London Thin Rectangular Grilles

All About Air Conditioners for Lounges

The lounge is the heart of your home and installing an air conditioning system allows you to have the ideal climate for you, your family, friends and even for your pets!

Not only do they provide effective cooling they also offer an extremely efficient heating solution that can significantly reduce your heating bills.

When selecting an air conditioner for a lounge, there are a few key factors to take into consideration. The size, layout and usage of the room all contribute to the type of system we’ll recommend. It’s also very common to find open-plan living rooms connected to kitchens that increase the heat load within the room. Our experienced surveyors will always ensure that any system we install provides the optimum cooling and heating you require.

We offer a free site survey on all our installations and should you be interested in getting other rooms in your home air conditioned then our surveyor is always happy to quote. Having multiple systems installed at the same time will save you money and add value to your home.

Ideal Systems for Lounges: Wall-Mounted Air Conditioners

Wall mounted air conditioners are the most common units used in a living room environment. The two main advantages are that wall units are always the cheapest option to install; 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.

All air conditioners we install are exceptionally quiet which means that they won’t disturb conversations or your favourite TV programmes!

There are also premium models of wall units (like the Gree Moda, Daikin Emura and Mitsubishi Zen units – click the link below to see). They are a little more expensive, however, they look great in a lounge setting. Our surveyor will discuss all the available options with you and show you brochures of the units we install.

Low Wall-Mounted Units for Lounges

Low wall-mounted air conditioners are very similar to standard wall units. However, they are placed at a low level on the wall. They are more expensive than traditional wall units, but customers sometimes prefer them because, like radiators, they are placed out of their line of sight. In fact, our clients often replace their radiators with low wall-mounted AC units because they are similar in shape and size with the added benefit of offering cooling and low-cost efficient heating.

If low-wall aircon units sound appealing, then tell our surveyor, and they’ll design a suitable solution for you.

Large living rooms occasionally need more than one internal wall unit to provide sufficient cooling. Less-experienced installers often suggest installing one industrial sized unit (designed for cooling large shops) for large rooms, rather than multiple less powered units . Be mindful that these units are very noisy and do not provide balanced cooling in the living room environment.

Ducted Units for Lounges

Ducted Air Conditioning Systems are the most expensive option, but they are certainly the most aesthetically pleasing option for a lounge. The ductwork and unit are hidden within the ceiling or loft space, and all that is visible is a small grille flush in the ceiling. Please note that these are best fitted as part of a building project as they require a ceiling void.

If you do not have a ‘false ceiling’ then either wall-mounted air conditioning units are the best option for you (see above).

There are various grille designs available which suit different shapes and sizes of room. Our surveyors will talk you through all the different solutions, so you get specific aesthetic you wish to achieve.
