Installing air conditioning in a home - With global warming there is little doubt that UK summers are getting hotter. If you consider some European countries and the US you will see that Air Conditioning in homes is becoming more and more popular.
Its strange when you think that often our workplaces are air conditioned, most new cars come with air conditioning as standard – yet our homes are not.
DIY fit air conditioning has started to become more popular. B&Q for example have now started to offer a line in self fit air conditioning. The unit we used is a split unit. It contains an internal fan and control unit designed to be installed at high level in the room and an external cooling / fan unit.
These units are fairly simple to fit, they claim that if you can plumb in a washing machine then you should be able to fit this.
