Air Conditioning For Apartments And Listed Buildings In London Without The Need For An Outside Unit

Have You Been Told You Cannot Have Air Conditioning In Your London Property?

If you live in an apartment or listed building and have been told you cannot have air conditioning, we are here to change that.

  • Can the temperature inside your home get uncomfortable?
  • Would you like to sleep better at night?
  • Are you restricted from making external modifications to your property?
  • Are you reluctant to open the windows in your property due to outside noise and air pollution?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you’re in the right place. Call us on 020 8080 9708 to discuss our London air conditioning solutions.

At Urban Cooling, we provide fully internal air conditioning, which requires no exterior modifications to your property. All of our solutions offer the same performance as conventional air conditioning. The difference is, you don’t need planning permission because they don’t require an external unit to be installed.

Why Is Conventional Air Conditioning Not An Option For Apartments And Listed Buildings?

The reason many other air conditioning companies in London can’t provide you with a solution for your property is that the majority of systems require an outside condenser to be installed on a property’s exterior.

This is bad news if you live in either a new build apartment bound by restrictions, in a converted listed building or a property that is within a conservation area. In these types of property, an outside condenser is not an option either due to the restrictions on making exterior modifications to your property or simply because of a lack of space.

Planning Restrictions

New-build apartment owners in London are often not permitted to make exterior modifications to the building. Similarly, those living in listed properties and buildings in conservation areas usually require planning permission to alter a building’s exterior.

This can mean that air conditioning installation in London can be challenging as you need to work within these restrictions.

Lack of Space

Not all new-build apartments have the same restrictions, there are buildings where external air conditioning condensers can be installed.

However, the issue with these buildings may simply be a lack of space. You might have a balcony but an external condenser will mean your outdoor space becomes extremely restricted. You also might not want to block your window with an air con unit.

No Outside Condenser Required

Our air conditioning solutions are different from traditional options. They don’t require an outdoor condenser so you don’t need outside space or planning permission.

Instead, they utilise a fully internal condenser, which is operated by utilising your mains water supply in a controlled manner. Essentially, they operate in much the same way as a washing machine or dishwasher.

Our Systems Use Your Existing Pipework

Our air conditioning units utilise the latest refrigerant pipework, all of which is contained within your property. This means nothing needs to be installed externally and we don’t need access to the outside of your property to fit your system.

Easily Concealable Compact Designs

All of the interior condensers used in our air conditioning systems are designed to be compact. They can easily be concealed in a cupboard, kitchen unit or utility area. There are a lot of creative ways we can disguise them without taking up loads of space.

The interior condenser is then connected to the air conditioning unit via the refrigeration pipework, which can be hidden in wall cavities or the ceiling.
