Air Conditioning for Listed Buildings

Contact Us

As with many Grade II listed buildings, modernising this type of property can be a challenge, particularly if you want to install air conditioning. Temperature can be an issue in listed buildings. You tend to find in older properties they are very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. To solve this problem, installing air conditioning can help regulate the temperature in your home.

​Guidelines in city centres, conservation areas and Grade II listed buildings prohibit traditional external condensing units and the drilling of any holes in the external walls of the building.  Integrating air conditioning in a Grade II building can be a challenge if this involves modification to exterior walls. In this scenario ACS are able to install a water cooled internal condenser system. The internal integrated water cooling technology can be contained within the room, and plumbed into your water supply. For aesthetic and practical reasons, we are able to conceal the condensing box of the air conditioning unit out of view. This can be stored in a cupboard, under a sink or where convenient in your home. There is also low noise output. If you do have planning permission to drill holes through the exterior wall, an alternative option is through the wall air conditioning.

​If you live in a Grade II listed building in London or the Home Counties and require advice on which type of AC unit to choose, ACS will provide expert advice, install and maintain your air conditioning system. We are also able to sell and supply AC units based on your requirements.
