Loft conversions are a great way to add additional space to your home and increase the value of the property. In fact, more than a third of homes in some areas of London have extended upwards!
According to research, the London boroughs with the lowest number of houses and the highest property values have seen the highest uptake in loft conversions between 2000 and 2015. The City of Westminster is leading the way with 40% of the 13,000 homes in the area having been extended upwards, followed by 31% in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea and 24% in Camden.
In contrast, the boroughs with the highest number of houses and the lowest property values have the lowest number of loft conversion in the same period.
If you’re thinking of jumping on the bandwagon and converting your loft space, there are a whole host of things to think about – including ventilation and temperature control.
As well as keeping the temperature at a pleasant level (attics have a tendency to get really warm, really fast!), having the correct ventilation and air con systems in your loft conversion will help to reduce the chances of moisture build-up, lower the cost of heating bills, and maintain air quality and humidity levels.
Wall mounted air con units
Wall mounted air con units are ideal for smaller spaces and, as such, are a popular choice of air conditioning for loft conversions.
Available in a wide variety of sizes, styles, and colours, you can rest assured that the air con unit won’t impact on your décor or impose on the room. What’s more, wall mounted air conditioners can also be installed low or high on the wall, meaning they can easily accommodate the shape, size, and layout of your loft conversion.
