Air Conditioning

These days, everyone knows about air conditioning and how it works to cool your home on hot summer days. But what most people don’t know is that air con both heat and cool your home or office. It can also be linked with renewable energy products to increase efficiency and lower your running costs.

We’ve put together a short guide to explain how heating and air conditioning can come from one unit. We’ll also explain why it’s an ideal option for your home or office.

If you’re clued up on renewable energy, you may have heard of heat pumps. Generally, people think of air source heat pumps or ground source heat pumps, which take heat from the air or ground and use the energy to heat your home. Essentially, this is what air conditioning does – these days, most units are combined, so can offer both heating and cooling.

Air Conditioning Installation Peterborough

There are lots of benefits to installing a combination
heating and air conditioning unit, such as:

Climate control

With a multi-split system that offers combination heating and air conditioning, you can control the temperture of different parts of your home or business premises. You can heat or cool different areas as much or as little as you need, ensuring that you’re always comfortable whatever the weather.


Heating and air con systems are efficient. This is mainly because they don’t use ducts to push air around your property. Ducts lose heat on cold days and get warm on hot days, whereas split or multi-split systems use refrigerant pipes and pressure to heat or cool, making it more efficient.

Cheap to run

Combined heating and air conditioning systems are a good option for heating your home, especially if you don’t have a mains gas connection. Electricity powers them, making them cheaper to run than oil boilers. If you’re replacing an old G-rated oil boiler with a new combination heating and air conditioning unit, you could save between £930 and £1,100 a year on fuel bills. Plus if you pair your installation with renewable energy, you could pay next-to-nothing to run your system.

Who needs to carry out
a heating and air
conditioning service?

Combination heating and air conditioning units still have the same components as normal air conditioning units, so an F-gas registered engineer needs to service your unit.

If released into the atmosphere, the refrigerant in a heating and air conditioning unit can be extremely harmful to the environment, so it’s important to have your system serviced by a qualified engineer that can take all the necessary precautions.

During a heating and air conditioning service, the engineer will:

  • Check that your system is still heating and cooling efficiently
  • Clean indoor and ourdoor units
  • Inspect air filters, coils, fans, compressors and any other components
  • Check all electrical connections
  • Test for refrigerant and oil leaks
  • Ensure your system is still compliant with F-gas regulations

If everything is still working well with your air conditioning unit, it will be a simple and quick appointment. However if your heating and air conditioning service flags up any problems, your engineer will advise you on what should be done to fix it. If you have regular services, hopefully any problems will be identified and can be fixed easily at a relativley low cost. That’s why it’s important to keep up with your services, as they could save you money in the long term.
