Fighting For Air

Whether your basking in the sunshine in August or shivering with December downpours, it’s fair to say the British weather is well known for its unpredictability throughout the year. However, Associated Cooling Services ensure your staff aren’t fighting for cool/warm air – we know how to produce a comfortable temperature whatever the season!

There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration when installing air conditioners in an office, but the number one reason for purchasing one is that it really is the ideal way to keep a team motivated and also impress customers/clients visiting your office to learn more about your product and/or service.

ACS allows an even air flow to be achieved in every room of your office or business premises. We consider the shape and layout of the workplace to be cooled/heated, resulting in some parts of the office receiving a much heavier air flow than others. After all, you don’t want half the office to be cold while the other half is too hot. 

We understand that no office is the same and requirements are always different. Our expert engineers ensure that all units and installations match the expectations you desire.


What system would best suit your office?


Depending on your individual requirements, the most popular system for many offices up and down the country is a wall-mounted air conditioner. In addition, these units are also the most cost-effective option, these are easily installed and situated at a high level on the wall.

Perhaps your business resides in a smaller office? If so a single unit would be ideal for cooling a 1-6 person office. While a larger premises you would require multiple wall units strategically placed so the entire room benefits from its airflow.


As you can expect, modern offices more often than not have the very finest appliances/technology, showcasing their success. Ceiling-mounted also fall into that category, this could be one of your smartest company purchases!

These popular units are slightly more expensive than wall units, but the benefit to a ceiling-mount is that this four-way airflow is almost entirely hidden within a suspended ceiling and are therefore more aesthetically pleasing; all that is visible is an almost-flush facia panel above.

Ducted Units

Ducted Units are another popular choice for offices. While they are one of the more expensive options in terms of air conditioning, they are also the most pleasing on the eye, as the duct-work and internal units are hidden within a suspended ceiling. 

More often than not, installing a ducted air conditioner within an office is best undertaken as part of a building project; however, if you have a suspended ceiling (like many offices do) then it can be easily retrofitted without significant disturbance on your workforce.

The ACS Mechanical and Electrical team run full HVAC commercial projects. A project manager is appointed to oversee all aspects from start to finish. Our customer service is second to none to ensure that the end project fully meets our customer’s requirements. Our surveyors are able to visit your office and advise you of the most suitable options.

In addition, we carry out both new electrical installations and upgrades to existing installations. All installation work is completed to NICEIC regulations and a certificate is provided upon completion of the work.
