Making everyone more comfortable

WITH warmer summers seeming to be a future trend, more and more homeowners are making their environment more comfortable by installing air conditioning in their bedrooms or conservatories.

Working with Daikin, one of the world’s largest suppliers of air conditioning systems, Griffiths have been installing air conditioning throughout Northamptonshire and the seven surrounding counties for almost 20 years. Back then it was cooling only but more recently heat pump air conditioning has become standard, enabling both heating and cooling from the same system.

Because in heating mode the systems are very economical in their use of electricity (roughly one kilowatt of electricity produces four kilowatts of heat) the government allow VAT to be charged at only five per cent for domestic installations.

Generally, air conditioning systems have an outdoor unit and a wide choice of indoor units that can be wall, floor or ceiling mounted. Another option that is often overlooked, is to place a ducted unit in a loft space and feed the conditioned air into flexible ducts that terminate in neat white ceiling grilles. This arrangement can provide air conditioning to several upstairs bedrooms or multiple rooms in a bungalow, without the expense of a separate system for each room.

For wall mounted systems, Daikin offer various options to suit budget and required functions. Top of the range is the Ururu Sarara providing complete climate control with (de)humidification, air purification and ventilation with top efficiencies in heating and cooling. Next are the Stylish models in white, silver or blackwood with a modern and striking design. The popular curved front Emura models, available in matt crystal white or silver, are design at its best, delivering superior efficiency and comfort. Standard wall mounts have an attractive design with perfect indoor air quality, and for those seeking the most economical solution, the Low Inverter model still provides high efficiency and comfort.
