Zero VAT for inverter air conditioning systems for the home

Don’t delay! Get going and enjoy all the energy efficiency benefits of a new inverter air conditioner with zero rated VAT.

Effective 1st April, and for five years, the Chancellor has cut VAT from 5% to zero on heat pump installations.

Importantly, BESA have clarified that this means a typical domestic air conditioning system that is able to heat (i.e. using an air source reverse cycle inverter heat pump) will be zero rated for VAT.

The zero VAT rating only applies to a full installation at a domestic property, and not simply the supply of equipment.

Better Air

Think cool air, but also think clean air

home air con living roomAir conditioning uses an array of technologies to purify and clean the air.  They help ensure that your home is a healthy space in which to live or work.  Such features as a dual barrier coating that keeps out dust and grease, and a ‘titanium apatite’ or ‘plasma quad plus’ filter (from Daikin and Mitsubishi respectively) that helps render bacteria and pollutants harmless and removes unwanted microparticles and moulds.  Welcome news for asthma and hay fever sufferers, and actually anyone concerned about the quality of the air that they breathe indoors.

This is wall sculpture…

The first thing you will notice about the elegant Daikin Emura FTYS Series air conditioner is the curving facia.  It lends it a sculpted silhouette that looks superb. It is available in white and silver that compliments the latest in interior design fashion.

Reflecting the latest trend in trend in air conditioning, the Daikin Emura uses air-to-air heat pumps to extract heat from the air and inverter technology.  This means air can be cooled or heated with less energy and so minimise running costs.

The nitty gritty…

Up to 5 indoor units can be connected with a single outdoor unit. Or, if it using a Mini VRV outdoor unit, up to 9 indoor units (the system will need two or three BPMK boxes to allow connection of the split indoor units).

And the clever…

Like the Mitsubishi MSZ-LN air conditioner, the Emura features a 2 area motion detector smart sensor that can identify if anyone is in the room or how long it is empty.  It then adjusts its settings based on the activity it sees. Aside from saving energy, this means it can also guide chilled air to flow where people are not.  This way unwelcome drafts can be avoided.

The Daikin Emura Air Conditioner also boasts some clever features to assist with indoor air quality and help keep it healthy and clean. For example the titanium apatite deodorising filter decomposes odours, and a silver allergen removal and air purifying filter traps 99% of allergens such as dust mites and pollen.

In addition to a sophisticated remote control, it can also be controlled online from any location with an app, or via your local network or internet.

Air Con advice

Six top tips for home air conditioning

domestic air con home

Air Conditioning to suit every room in your home

Indoor units that look beautiful…

There are indoor units to suit every room in your home. From living room to kitchen, bedroom to home office, home gym to pool room.  Our experienced design engineers will help you choose what is right for you.

You will find some air conditioners that seek to make a statement and are very sleek and stylish.  And others that aim to be more discrete, using ducts and ceiling vents to disguise their presence. They can be mounted high or low.  

  • High wall mounted units (sleek and stylish)
  • Low wall mounted units (a bit like a designer radiator)
  • Ceiling cassettes (the discrete option that is usually ceiling mounted)
  • Slim-ducted units (even more discrete, all you’ll see are the ventilation grills of the outlets, air is directed to the outlets through insulated ducts, each of which can contain a damper to provide control of the air flow to individual rooms.)*
 

…connected to outdoor units that do the graft

Installed systems usually comprise an outdoor unit. In this is a fan that connects to an indoor unit via two insulated pipes that contain a refrigerant, invariably R32 because it has a low Global Warming Potential.

 

What size air conditioning system will suit me?

A good starting point for deciding which air conditioning system you need in your home is to consider the size of the ac unit(S) that is required. Also how much flexibility you want to control the temperature of individual rooms.

Small and simple – single unit air con

A single high or low wall air conditioning unit links to an an outdoor unit for simple but effective air conditioning of a single room. 

Larger – up to 4 unit air conditioning system

If you have more than one room, or a particularly large room, a split air conditioner may be the answer. Up to 4 indoor units are linked to a single outdoor unit. They all operate together. In other words they are all either on or off, and cooling or heating as one.

Largest – multiple room AC

Efficient and powerful, the next step up is the multi-split air conditioning system. A single outdoor unit can serve up to eight rooms.  Importantly, each indoor unit can be individually controlled to heat or cool each room to climate controlled perfection. This flexibility offers the ultimate comfort about the home.

* A note on ducted units…  Ducted air conditioning is likely to be best suited to new build homes rather than as a retro-fit.  This is not to say it cannot be done, but often the disruptive building work may make this a less appealing route.  

There are a variety of stylish wall air conditioners on the market, from budget to premium. If you have more than one room, or an especially large space to cool or heat, you will need more than one air conditioner linked to an outside unit.

Our surveyors will guide you through the choices and help you select the right air conditioner for you. They have years of experience and know the good, from the bad, from the ugly. And whatever air conditioner they recommend, you can be sure it will represent the optimal cooling solution for your home or home office.

It may surprise you just how inexpensive an installed air conditioning system is. But really there are no catches. That is providing you use a reputable air conditioning installer like Clean Air.

Even our budget air conditioners look sleek. And, if you stick to our recommendations, it will share a very similar technical specification to that of a more expensive unit.

For true beauty and style you may opt for a premium model.  We will understand why.  Mitsubishi and Daikin have models that look simply stunning. And by combining performance and function with designer appeal, they represent the pinnacle in wall mounted air cooling and air management.

So, whatever the weather outside, go ahead and create the perfect environment inside. Book a Free Survey Today

A ducted air conditioning system is the way to enjoy the perfect room temperature in the most unobtrusive way possible.  It quietly gets on with the job in hand and maintains an optimal climate controlled environment. All day, every day.  For discrete performance and supreme comfort, nothing else quite beats it.

It is the most expensive form of air conditioning to install. Also, it may not be possible as a retro fit in some domestic properties. This is because of the prohibitive cost of enabling building works. But do not let this put you off.  No matter how big or small the job, our surveyor will visit your property and advise what is possible in your home. There is no charge for this service. So, please go ahead and book your free site survey here

 

How does ducted air conditioning work?

Ducted installations distribute a stream of conditioned air to your rooms via discreet grilles. These are usually sited within the ceiling. To cool, heat and circulate air an air outlet and return air inlet is used. The ducts will be neatly run within the roof or ceiling space so that all that you actually see are the grilles.

Quiet and powerful performance is a given. This form of air conditioning is one of the most versatile of all the climate control solutions. Above all, this is the perfect way to achieve a balanced and gentle airflow. Especially within larger homes or room spaces.  This said, installation of these systems requires an experienced engineer with qualifications to match. Clean Air has installed such air conditioning systems for over thirty years. Our engineers are highly trained professionals.  For example, you can be sure they will carefully calculate air flows and balance the ac system to suit.

For precise control of individual room temperatures you may require a number of ducted systems.  Or if you are happy to simply restrict air flow to individual rooms or zones, we can install dampers within the ducts.

clean air living air con

home air con living roomSometimes a low floor or wall mounted air conditioner is preferable to one installed at a high level. They are often a great option for a dwarf wall in a conservatory, or a room with vaulted ceilings,  or simply to occupy a space under a window where a radiator might otherwise sit. The other big advantage is that they are easier to position out of primary sight lines. These are often important considerations and will outweigh the price premium over high level wall air conditioners.

In common with the latest range of heat pump inverter technology air conditioners, they will heat as well as cool. It is not uncommon to have  clients use them in place of a conventional radiator.  After all they promise a perfect temperature whatever the season and can often be the more energy efficient way to warm a room.

Two of the Best Low Level Air Conditioners

 
The Mitsubishi Electric MFZ-KJ Series

A striking, compact, asymmetric Mitsubishi MFZ-KJ-Floor-Mounted-air conMitsubishi MFZ-KJ-Floor-Mounted-remote controllerMITSIBUSHI-LOW-LEVEL-AIR-CONDITIONER-FLOOR-WALL-MOUNTdesign cloaks technology that make the MFZ-KJ Series an extremely versatile and capable air conditioner.

There are three features which make this an outstanding air conditioner

First is the auto swing vane. The MFZ-KJ air conditioner deploys three unique shaped vanes to ensure optimum air distribution for a more natural airflow throughout the room. This means it performs brilliantly, as a cooler or as a heater. A clever addition is the hot start for draft prevention.

Second, the MFZ-KJ features a clever Econo Cool setting that allows the set temperature to be raised by 2 degrees C without a loss of comfort but can offer a 20% gain in energy efficiency.

Finally, it has an effective Anti-Allergy Enzyme filter – artificial enzymecatalyst on the filament – to help catch allergens, dust and odours.

 
The Daikin Nexura FVXG-K

Daikin Emura - FTXJ-MSDaikin Nexmura RemoteThe Nexura retains the familiar and stylish Daikin curves. As a design statement it is a winner, and certainly stands out from the crowd aesthetically speaking.

More importantly perhaps, under the hood of this low level air conditioner, are features that mean it performs a treat too. Daikin market the Nexura as ‘the best of two worlds united’.  It is easy to see why given its obvious capabilities in both the cooling and heating departments.

Key Features that make the Nexura stand out

When it comes to heating the Nexura has an ace up its sleeve. It features a unique aluminium part to the front panel that warms and radiates heat, just like a traditional radiator.

The rapid cooling or heating mode is also very effective for when instant an boost – either to warm or cool – is required.

The titanium apatite deodorising filter is also worth a mention. It helps capture harmful organic chemical substances such as bacteria, viruses and allergens, airborne dust particles and remove unwanted odours.

Finally, you will certainly appreciate the low noise levels. As little as 22dB(A) in cooling mode, and 19dB(A) in radiant heat mode. Not bad, considering ambient sound in a quiet room may average around 40dB(A).

It can be wall mounted, or recessed in to it,  and at just 600 mm high it is usually a perfect fit beneath a window. When installed as VRV for residential application, up to 9 indoor units can be individually be operated within the same mode and connected to just one outdoor unit. Product Features

Ventilation Lossnay-VL-100Ventilation is vital

 
Improved air quality and comfort at home begins with effective fresh air ventilation. 
 
The challenge is…  that modern homes must adhere to very strict Building Regulations that call for highly insulated and air pressure tested homes.
 
And the good news is… that air conditioning your home provides the perfect opportunity not only to introduce fresh, clean air to your property but also expel polluted air. 

 

Ventilate for Comfort

ventilation-home-download-web

One of the very best ways to achieve this is with the Daikin VAM or Mitsubishi Lossnay ventilation and heat recovery units, purpose designed for domestic use.  They introduce fresh air and remove stale air converting major heat loss into energy gains.

Fresh Air Ventilation

The trump card of these ventilation units is the ability to  simultaneous supply fresh air while extracting stale and polluted air, and in a highly energy efficient manner.

Heat Recovery Saves You Money

By recovering both latent heat and sensible heat up to 79% heat recovery is possible, which saves both energy and costs.

Easy Installation

With good sound attenuation and simple installation, these units are proving a popular ventilation solution.

In the current times ventilation is an ever more important consideration. We expect to be very busy with these types of unit, so beat the rush and a book a free site survey.

Popular in homes in Australia, as temperatures soar in the UK so evaporative cooling is earning it’s place here too for domestic applications.

This form of air conditioning, which uses water rather than refrigerants, is now the default way to cool warehouses and factories in the UK. Clean Air were one of the very first to introduce it to these shores in 1989.  Indeed we have probably installed more evap cooling units in the UK than any other company. It is easy to see why. It is not just because we are great at what we do, which we are, but also because evap cooling units are such incredible things.

The first reason for this is that evaporative air conditioners are highly effective. Each evaporative unit can lower the temperature of 360 m2 by up to 16°C. And not only do you get cool air, but you also get fresh air ventilation. This is because evap coolers introduces a continual flow of filtered air from outside which displaces the hot and polluted air inside.

Secondly, they are very economical to run. From just a £1 per day and up to 80% cheaper than some of the older air conditioning systems.

Thirdly,  because they consume little power and use just fresh air and water, evap cooling is a very green way to keep your cool.
