Watch ProtoCool in action

James was a commercial client of ours, using our services to cool one of his office buildings in Reading. But like many, he was experiencing high temperatures in the top floor of his home. This was effecting his sleep and focus, and so was a high priority to fix. The solution? A ducted air con system to give him back control.

Air Conditioning Reading, Berkshire & beyond.

More and more people across the UK are waking up to the benefits of air conditioning. Not only does it cool your home in the summer, it heats your home in the winter too. It's not just for holidays abroad, and it's not just for the wealthy. As gas prices rise, air conditioning is now the go-to solution to cut costs and increase comfort. Nothing else offers the same perks when it comes to features, costs, and 24/7/365 day use.

COVID Statement:
The comfort and safety of those we're responsible for is paramount. So where does that leave us when it comes to air conditioning and Covid-19? Over the past few months, we've had many questions from our network on air conditioning and the use of ventilation systems.

Generally there have been two parts to official advice:‍

1. Good ventilation, which can be provided by Air Conditioning, is an important factor in reducing the spread of Covid-19.

2. Regular servicing and maintenance of ventilation systems is a must.

Official WHO statement:

"Air conditioning and ventilation are considered effective control strategies for preventing workplace infection. If a ventilation system is well maintained the risk of transmission should not be significant. By well maintained, we mean that the system is inspected periodically, the most efficient filters are used, the filters are changed according to manufacturer recommendations, and the duct systems are cleaned periodically""Air conditioning and ventilation systems that are well-maintained and operated should not increase the risk of virus transmission."

"All air conditioning and industrial ventilation systems for both residential and high occupancy buildings (government buildings, schools, hotels, and hospitals) should be inspected, maintained, and cleaned regularly to prevent transmission."
