Fuengirola, Espana (PressExposure) June 30, 2011 -- Air conditioning is being installed in more homes in the UK today than ever before. Due to the recent extremely hot summers, there is growing interest in mechanical cooling in the home and this market is expanding rapidly. Consumers are researching the cost, efficiency, and versatility before committing themselves to this expenditure.
When choosing air conditioning, one option available is central air con where a central system uses supply and return ducts to circulate cool air through a house. Another alternative is a split system which consists of two parts, the first is a main evaporator unit which is inside the building and the second is an external condenser box which can either be hung on an outside wall or can sit firmly on a flat roof or even the ground.
Many consumers opt for split air conditioning units for the simple reason that the condenser is installed outside the building; this means that from the inside the operation of the unit is very quiet. Another benefit is the cost as split air conditioning units are cheaper than a central system. Also, with a central system, if the duct work for the system has to travel through a place like an attic or a basement, it may lose a percentage of its energy consumption.
A split air conditioner, does not require ducting, as individual units inside the home are connected with conduit cable to an outside compression unit, therefore, not only do you get the advantage of a more efficient system, but have the choice of placing the inside unit wherever you want. The obvious place of course is on a wall in the room selected for cooling.
The versatility of this form of air conditioning is apparent as the inside blowers for a split air conditioning system can be placed on any wall in the house and usually accompanied by a remote control so that the temperature can be adjusted or turned off and on in each and every room where there is a unit installed.
The air conditioning market is climbing in step with climate change and the mindset of the UK consumer is also changing as is the whole of Europe. It was reported that the extreme hot conditions in August 2003 caused 35,000 additional deaths across Europe, 2,045 of which were reported to be in the UK, for the 10 days of the heat wave.
A spokesman for Climachill, specialists in all air conditioning said "cars are now air conditioned as standard and some think that air conditioning should be statutory in all new housing and commercial developments.
