Air conditioning technology continues to evolve and the humble air conditioning unit has now virtually changed beyond recognition. Unsightly, energy-guzzling and noisy units have been replaced by a new generation of compact designs, packed with technology and are more efficient, quieter and responsive than ever before. If you are thinking of introducing an air conditioning system into your home or business or upgrading your outdated equipment, now is a good time to consider your options.

From Portable Air Conditioning Units to Whole Building Air Con Systems

The team at K2 Heating and Cooling Solutions Ltd. have the knowledge and experience to manage any air conditioning project. Whether you are a residential homeowner seeking a simple, energy-efficient air conditioning unit; a hotel owner with an ailing air conditioning system to upgrade or an emerging IT company with a new server building to keep dry and regulate cool air, K2 should be your first port of call.

In a domestic situation, modern air conditioning units are becoming an increasingly common sight due to their discreet appearance and powerful yet eco-friendly operation, many requiring less energy than an electric light to perform their job! Homeowners with conservatories are beginning to see the value of a wall mounted air conditioning unit for managing temperature and humidity throughout the year, while students will find it much easier to concentrate for longer periods of time after their study or bedroom has been made more comfortable through air conditioning. Residential air conditioning units are also becoming a common sight in caravans, boats and garages due to their power and portability.

While retail outlets, factories, laboratories, warehouses and other commercial premises have always needed and valued air conditioning, many existing systems are consuming far too much energy and taking up unnecessary space. Avoiding upgrading an outdated commercial air conditioning system is almost always a false economy given the considerable energy savings that come about through installing a modern, eco-friendly equivalent.

What's important when considering a new ac unit?

Every air conditioning project is different, but here are some key considerations you need to think about before choosing an air conditioning unit. K2 can, of course, help you with this process.

BTU Rating

A BTU (British Thermal Unit) Rating illustrates the cooling ability of your unit with higher BTU ratings able to handle a bigger area but costing more to run (as a rule of thumb, divide the BTU Rating by 1,000 to get a pence per hour costing).


Once you know how powerful your unit needs to be, you can choose one that fits adequately into your available space. Modern air conditioning units can be surprisingly small but there is a lot of variation in shape and size.


From different mode settings and automatic timers to washable pre-filters and remote operation, today's air conditioning units come packed with features. Spend some time comparing specifications to ensure your budget is spent wisely.

Comfort, Control and Cost Efficiency

If you have been toying with the idea of a new air conditioner in your home or small office but are concerned about the cost then make sure to factor in the savings you are likely to make on your current heating bill. Many people don't realise that many modern air conditioning units are more efficient at providing heat than their gas boilers and can significantly reduce costs.

A new air conditioning unit could be the answer you have been looking for if you are frozen out of your conservatory in the winter but stifled in the summer, as they can be used to both heat and cool indoor environments. Air conditioning units are also ideal for gyms, garages, bedrooms, living rooms and other domestic spaces.

Convenience and control are prioritised in the high-quality units K2 use. Most can be remotely programmed and if you are designing a smart home, you will find options for full home automation. Modern air conditioning units are also much quieter than older models.

The key benefits of modern air-con units:

  • Lower energy usage and better for the environment
  • Cost-effective to help reduce energy bills
  • Can heat as well as cool
  • Remote controllable
  • Integrate with smart home environment controls
  • Usually quieter than older models

The quality of the air conditioning unit you choose is one of two crucial decisions you will have to make. You will also need to make sure you choose wisely when it comes to the supplier and installer of your products.
