Air Conditioning

Air Conditioning is a great cost efficient way to manage the temperature, humidity and cleanliness of the air within a building. All year round climate control is achieved by the air conditioning unit cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. This can lead to a more productive workforce through providing a comfortable working environment all year round.

Inverter-controlled air conditioning reduce energy consumption by as much as 30% (compared to non-inverter systems) saving you money on your energy bills all year round. Advanced technologies recover heat from air conditioning installations providing low cost heat and lowering carbon emissions. Many modern systems have sensors that automatically shut off the units when not in use resulting in further savings in energy bills and ess of an ecological footprint.

Advanced controls enable users to fine tune settings in any room they choose. You may just want to heat one room in a large building as an employee is catching up with some work out of office hours. Air conditioning allows that single room to be cooled or heated independently of the rest of the building, something a conventional central heating system is unable to do.

Timers can be easily set up for a number of requirements. An example would be offices can be heated or cooled 15 minutes before employees arrive for work.

The main types of Air Conditioning Systems are –

Single Split Air Conditioner

Single split air conditioners are the most common and basic systems installed. They consist of one internal fan coil unit that is connected to an external condensing unit via copper pipes. They are ideal for cooling or heating one room and are usually the most cost effective option to air condition a room.

Multi Split Air Conditioner

A Multi Split system uses multiple internal units that are all connected to one external condensing unit, ideal is space outside is an issue. The amount of internal units is dependent on the number of rooms that require air conditioning and each unit can be individually controlled. This allows each user to either have their system on or off and to set their own required temperature. All indoor units on a multi split system can only work in the same mode. It is not possible to heat one office and cool another.

Variable Refrigerant Flow Air Conditioner (VRFs)

As with Multi Split systems, VRFs have a number of internal units connected up to one external condensing unit. These are larger duty systems enabling larger numbers of indoor units to be used. Latest technology VRFs utilise Heat Recovery which increases efficiency and helps reduce operating costs. With many VRFs each separate unit is able to either heat or cool independently, so unlike the Multi Split System, you can heat one office at the same time as cooling another.

Air Source Heat Pump (Air to Water)

An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would. This makes them more suitable for underfloor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time.

Portable Air Conditioners

Portable air conditioners offer quick and easy temporary cooling. They can be used to provide additional cooling to an existing system when required or to provide cooling to an area that is not currently air conditioned. During a hot spell, an office that does not have air would temporarily benefit from a portable air conditioning unit. Or a server room that was struggling to maintain the required temperature during the summer would also benefit from a portable unit.

Air Conditioning Installation

At Boss Cooling we offer a free no obligation site survey in order to identify your specific requirements. On this survey we will also identify and assess any electrical and building works that will be needed to be carried out to accommodate the final installation.

On completion of the initial survey and identifying specific requirements, we will design a system to meet your needs and supply a quotation to carry out the works.

Upon acceptance of this quotation, all equipment and materials will be ordered and all risk assessments, method statements, health and safety documentation and schedule of works will be supplied. The installation will then begin at a time agreed with the customer. Boss Cooling’s core engineers are employed by Boss cooling and only approved Subcontract labour is used when required.

The systems are fully commissioned and handed over at the end of the installation. At this point any staff training on the operation of the systems will be carried out. You will then be issued with a completed commissioning sheet and the systems operation and maintenance manuals.

At Boss Cooling, we only install systems supplied by the industry’s leading manufacturers. These include Daikin, Mitsubishi Electric and Fujitsu. Every system installed by Boss comes with a free 3 year warranty and a 5 year warranty can also be provided if required.

After the installation we like to continue to work with the client and offer a full after sales support service and a preventative maintenance agreement.

Service and Maintenance

In order for your Air Conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation equipment to operate as efficiently as possible we strongly recommend a regular maintenance is carried out. It is well known that regular servicing will ensure a far longer lifespan of the equipment, improve its performance and reduce running costs.

At Boss Cooling service and maintenance contract will also make you fully F Gas compliant. Under F Gas legislation, it is the owner of the equipments responsibility to ensure that their air conditioning and refrigeration plant is leak free. As part of the contract we will do the regular leak inspections. We will take care of all required record keeping. We will send a fully certified engineer to you and we offer 24/7 support in the event of a refrigerant leak.

Lack of maintenance can increase energy consumption by as much as 36%. Any potential problems can be identified and put right early helping to prevent expensive breakdowns and downtime.

Not only will a regular maintenance keep your air conditioning and refrigeration plant in good working order, it will also kill 99.9% of all bacteria and fungi on contact within 60 seconds. Micro organisms such as Legionella, M.R.S.A and E.coli are all eliminated.

There are many residential, commercial and industrial environments that would benefit from a stale air removal and fresh air supply system. We are highly skilled and experienced in the design, installation, service and maintenance of trusted manufactures ventilation systems to meet your requirements. We ensure that when designing and specifying systems, the latest technologies are utilised to ensure a reliable and cost effective system is installed.

Ventilation at home

We understand the importance of having good air quality at home. As the average person spends 70% of their time at home, it is clear that the environment within a home is one of the most important to the health of its occupants.

Homes have become much more energy conscious and through measures like double glazing, draft proofing, improved insulation, these homes are gradually becoming air tight sealed units. This is ideal in terms of comfort and energy saving, but through sealing off the essential supply of fresh air will create stale, humid and contaminated air. This poor quality air has a detrimental effect on health causing ailments such as headaches, fatigue, respiratory problems.

The increasing levels of humidity within indoor air caused by sealing up our homes also leads to high levels of condensation. This is one of the major causes of dampness and leads to mould growth. If left, this can lead to musty, unsightly properties and can cause a number of health problems such as triggering asthma.

We offer a wide range of the latest energy efficient ventilation systems that offer whole house solutions to your air quality issues. These systems include Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) and Positive Input Ventilation (PIV).

We can carry out a free, no obligation site survey to identify the best system to suit your requirements.

Commercial and Industrial Ventilation

We understand the importance of air quality for many commercial and industrial applications. Buildings such as hospitals, factories, pharmaceutical environments, banks, restaurants, all require the perfect air temperature, humidity and air quality.

Modern commercial and industrial buildings are subject to many requirements regarding energy efficiency. These stringent requirements result in a reduction in the natural flow of air through a building which causes a number of issues such as a lack of fresh air/oxygen, risk of allergies, long lasting odors and increased mould causing condensation. These issues are likely to contribute to a significant loss in productivity, low morale and higher rate of sickness amongst many employees.

We offer a number of highly efficient, versatile ventilation systems to meet your exact needs. To ensure high levels of efficiency, we specify ventilation systems that utilise heat recovery technology to reclaim heat from stale outgoing air and reuse it to warm incoming, clean air. To ensure a reliable system, we use trusted manufactures, Daikin and Mitsubishi, of which up to 90% temperature exchange efficiency is achieved resulting in large energy savings.

The heat recovery ventilation systems can work in conjunction with existing or new air conditioning to maintain a comfortable and fresh environment.

We can carry out a free, no obligation site survey to identify the best system to suit your requirements
