Good reasons for having air conditioning cooling in a home:
Systems start at £849 + VAT fitted:
Heat pumps provide heating as well as cooling in the same unit. The heat pump is extremely efficient on the heating operation, having a COP (Coefficient of Performance of up to 2.5 or 3.0.COP of 2.5 means that the system will deliver 2.5KW of heat into the room, whilst consuming only 1KW of electricity, i.e. very efficient compared to, say, an electric fan heater or convector.
Other good reasons in addition to the above are:
Far more efficient than any other form of electric heating (because of high COPs, as described above). Difficult/costly to extend an existing central heating boiler system, e.g. for a conservatory, or extension.
Difficult to extend an existing central heating boiler system, e.g. for a loft conversion (insufficient height for expansion tank).
Heat Pump systems are very cost effective nowadays to add additional Heating & Cooling performance to a new space even where there is an existing central heating system in place.
e.g. The fitting of a Heat Pump Air Conditioning system in a new Conservatory.
Air Conditioning in your conservatory can really help to transform an under used room into a real retreat in the summer and the winter. Conservatories are always an attractive and inviting room but the change in temperature from summer to winter often makes them difficult to relax in.

How do I calculate the cooling or heating capacity of my room? Multiply the length x width x height of the room in metres multiply the total by 40, this will give you the answer in "watts"...
