Domestic Split Air Conditioning Systems: Comprising indoor and outdoor units connected by refrigerant pipes and cables, these are suitable for single or multiple rooms.

The Air Conditioning Installation Process:

Installing a home air conditioning system involves several steps, typically handled by trained professionals:
Indoor Unit Installation: Mounting the indoor unit in a location with sufficient airflow is crucial for optimal performance. Holes may need to be drilled to accommodate piping and wiring.
Outdoor Unit Installation: Proper placement of the outdoor unit, considering manufacturer specifications and noise levels, is essential. Our installation engineers can advise on suitable locations.

Wiring and Connection: Each air conditioning system has specific wiring requirements, which our professionals will follow meticulously to ensure proper functioning.

Cost Considerations:
The cost of installing an air conditioning system varies based on factors like system type, installation complexity, and property requirements. Worcester Bosch units are recommended for their quality, with installation costs typically starting from £1600.
