Air Conditioning for Listed Buildings

It’s fair to say that London has its fair share of stunning, historic buildings that never fail to take our breath away. And, with so many architectural wonders, it’s hardly surprising that there is an abundance of Grade II listed properties in and around the capital.

When a property becomes listed, it takes on a set of regulations in terms of what can and can’t be done to the property, particularly when it comes to external modernisations. To undertake work, you usually need to apply for planning permission.

This can often mean that installing air conditioning in a listed building is something of a challenge. And, with many Grade II listed buildings being very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter, this can cause distress and discomfort all year round.

But if your building is listed, don’t worry, all is not lost. There are still ways in which you can install an Air Con system and keep your living or working environment at the optimum temperature.

The Benefits of Water Cooled Internal Condensers

Water cooled internal condenser systems are often a great AC solution for listed buildings.

This type of air conditioning system involves keeping the internal integrated water cooling technology, where it can be contained within the room and plumbed into the water supply.

What’s more, the air conditioning unit’s condensing box can also be concealed out of view in a store cupboard, under a sink, wherever’s practical within your home.

A further benefit of a water cooled internal condenser is that they have a low noise output, keeping disruption in the working or living area to a minimum.
