Grateful for any feedback from anyone that has installed air conditioning in their house.
Contemplating putting a unit in open plan living area and master bedroom.
You mean heat recovery ventilation?
No air conditioning to cool the air
never considered installing aircon in a dwelling in Ireland.
generally the solution is fabric upgrade and position of windows
can you describe your accommodation?
I can see circumstances where air conditioning would be necessary in poorly designed new houses. i.e huge south and west facing windows. Clearly the designers are not carrying out an overheating analysis at design stage.
Over heating is a problem with the majority of new houses now.
An air-to-air heat exchanger can provide cooling in the summer and heating in the winter.
If it is a large open-plan area then the "cassette" in the ceiling might be a good way of doing it?
(Installation not cheap as requires an f-gas certified installer)
Rubbish. that’s a ridiculous generalisation. Please provide data to back-up this statement ?
Dont live with it, but do work with it. There's not too many domestic installations here, and many of those are in the trade. Having said that, any I know are happy with it. Its not cheap, you'll pay €2-3k per room
