Loft Conversions have become extremely popular as they can provide considerable additional bedroom space for a growing family and are a very useful way of increasing floor area and increasing the value of a property.
The main drawback with them is that they can be extremely hot in the summer months and cold in the winter. Cooling the Loft space can be difficult in the summer months particularly in a city environment where it can be noisy and therefore people are faced with the problem of struggling to sleep because its too hot or because its too noisy or in some cases both!
Modern Air conditioning units can provide both cooling and heating in a very efficient way and therefore can provide the ideal solution for loft conversions. They are also whisper quiet.
These units utilise renewable heat pump technology and inverter technology and are extremely energy efficient at both cooling and heating. Inverter technology means that the pump only runs at the speed required to cool the room so can run very quietly on tick over for most of the time.
They are typically 4 times more efficient than traditional gas or electric powered heating systems all of which can result in substantially reduced running costs and lower carbon emissions.
They are also up to 50% more efficient than 10-15 year old AC systems so can offer good energy savings as against older systems.
These units give you great flexibility to ensure you can keep cool in the summer or do not need to put the full heating system on to heat one room in winter. They are perfect for lounges, bedrooms, loft spaces and conservatories. The units also filter the air helping to remove unwanted pollutants and pollen.
In addition the VAT rate is Zero on these systems as they are classified as a Green Technology and emit Zero Carbon emissions.
We would be very pleased to discuss the various options available to you and provide you with the benefit of their experience to ensure that you are not disappointed.
