Building a loft conversion is a great way to maximise the space in your home and add value to the property. With property prices too high for many, it offers the ideal alternative if you need more space for your family. But the temperature in the loft can be either be too hot or too cold, depending on the time of air, and air conditioning offers the ideal solution.
During the summer when the temperature starts to rise, most people instinctively reach to open the window to ventilate the room. However, if the room you are in is cooler than the temperature outside you should keep the windows closed, otherwise all you are doing is letting more hot air into the space.

But even with the window closed the temperature may still be too much to sit around in. And if you have turned the loft into a bedroom, getting to sleep at night may be a struggle, especially as the heat rises to the top of the house.
Air conditioning gives you back control, enabling you to set the right temperature in the room so you can relax and get a good night’s rest. While Velux windows offer some ventilation, they struggle to provide enough during the warmer months of the year, which makes the space much more uncomfortable to use.
Modern air conditioning units make it much easier to blend in with new décor in the loft. Low wall-mounted systems tend to be a popular option with many homeowners, as they sit at a similar level to radiators and complement contemporary design ideas.
Duct air conditioning units are also a good way to conceal the system, so you are only aware of its presence when the cool or hot air is turned on. So whether you use the loft as a bedroom, playroom or home office, you can find the right temperature balance at any time of the year.
When you install a wall-mounted air conditioning system with AAC, you can choose from over 250 colours to repaint the cover panels. That makes it easy to find the right tone that works with the loft décor so the unit doesn’t stand out and look obtrusive.
