Residential Air Conditioning

We may not get much summer in the UK but when it does get warmer, being indoors can get incredibly stuffy and uncomfortable. We’ve all struggled to sleep at night when it’s muggy or done an emergency run to the shops to buy extra fans when the temperatures have soared.

With many of us now working from home as well, it’s important to have a cool and comfortable place to sit where you can be happy and productive.

At Cool-Tec, we have over 35 years of experience designing, supplying, installing and servicing a wide range of high-quality air conditioning units and systems for homes across Dorset.

With a range of energy-efficient residential air conditioning units from the biggest, most trusted brands, you can stay cool all year round!

Why invest in air conditioning for your home?

Investing in air conditioning for your home has a range of benefits, including:

Stay cool, whatever the weather

This is probably the most obvious benefit but definitely the biggest. Just think – no more tossing and turning in bed on those sticky summer nights. Keep cool during home workouts or create a perfectly comfortable work environment in your WFH space.

Improve your air quality

Air conditioning has been proven to promote better air quality, reducing the risk of dehydration, asthma attacks, and even heat stroke on those days when it’s simply far too hot.

Air conditioning is efficient and versatile enough to suit any home

We specialise in fitting home air conditioning systems from leading brands, which offer a relatively high efficiency rating. With plenty of different models and types, including central and multi-split, there’s a perfect air conditioning system to complement any home.

Types of residential air conditioning

There are different types of air conditioning units that are suitable for home use. As the air con experts, we can advise on the best solution to suit your home and budget. Some of the different types of residential air conditioning include:

Central air conditioning

This is ideal if you have a large home and you wish to cool multiple rooms at once. Central air conditioning units use a split system that regulates air through ducts installed in your home. This can also sometimes be known as a ducted system.

“Split” implies that there is a combination of two main units: an outdoor unit (which comprises a condenser and compressor) and the indoor unit (which comprises the evaporator coils and air handler).

Programmable thermostats can be coupled with central air conditioners for a “smart home” experience.

A central air conditioning unit cools all the rooms attached to ducts at the same time, regulating temperature quickly and reducing humidity throughout your home.

Wall-mounted air conditioners

These are probably the most commonly used air conditioning units in a home environment. Long, thin and placed at a high level on the wall, they’re really easy to retrofit in rooms with no need for building work or redecoration.

Another huge advantage is that they’re really quiet, making them ideal for home use. While a single unit will usually be enough to cool most rooms, larger rooms may require an additional wall unit.

When we visit your home, we can advise on the best model to go for.

Low wall-mounted air conditioners

While these are a great choice for conservatories, loft conversions, and any rooms with low walls, they are suitable for all rooms of the home. As the name suggests, they are similar to wall-mounted air conditioning units, simply placed at a lower level on the wall.

They’re often popular with homeowners because they are placed out of their line of sight, in much the same way as radiators.
