Flats and apartments are increasingly popular, particularly in London and other urban areas where space is limited and comes at a premium cost.

And, with the growing rise of apartment blocks in London, it perhaps comes as no surprise that a growing proportion of the inquiries we receive are regarding air conditioning for apartments.

After all, when you’ve finished a long, hot day in the office, the last thing you want to have to do is to go back to a hot, stuffy apartment, right?

So if you’re thinking of installing air conditioning in your London apartment and you’re not sure where to begin, here’s our guide to the best types of air con units for flats and apartments…

Water Cooled Air Conditioning Unit without Outside Box

Many apartments in central London, or any other city centre for that matter, won’t allow you to install an external condensing unit, which can prove problematic as they are required for most conventional AC units.

Water cooled air conditioning units offer the perfect solution as the condensing unit can be hidden out of view in a cupboard or under a kitchen sink, meaning that they can be installed in flats limited space and planning permission is also not required. This type of unit can also be installed on listed properties.

This type of air conditioning system is also great for apartments as they offer a low noise output – so you can enjoy your ideal temperature in peace and quiet!

Through the Wall Air Conditioning Unit

Through the wall air conditioning units are another great option for London apartments as they don’t require an outside box or condenser. What’s more, they are also suitable for use on an external wall.

Easy to install and quiet when in use, through the wall air conditioning units only require a single window to operate and their use of a wall sleeve prevents unwanted drafts from creeping in when the system is not in use!

So there you have it – it really is possible to find an efficient and versatile air conditioning system that will keep your London apartment cool and comfortable all year round.
