What is Air Conditioning?

Air Conditioning is a mechanical system designed to cool and distribute air into a space. This will improve the environment for people or equipment. Modern air conditioning systems also dehumidify and filter the air.

The F-Gas regulation

The F-Gas Regulation (EC) 842/2006  was adopted on 17th May 2006 and later revised and replaced by (EU) 517/2014 in April 2014. The overall aim of F-Gas is to reduce and contain emissions by using responsible refrigeration. These regulations include:

  • Better containment of F-gases in their applications

  • Recovery of F-gases from products and equipment reaching their end of life

  • Training and certification of technical personnel and companies working with F-gases

  • Reporting of production, import and export data within the EU

  • Labelling of certain products and equipment containing those gases

General air conditioning information:

By locating the outdoor (condenser) unit in direct sunlight makes it work harder. The location of the outdoor air conditioning unit must be easily accessible from all sides.


Horsepower is a measure of the rating of a compressor and does not relate to the cooling capacity of an air conditioning system; the systems capacity is measured in kilowatts.

If a unit produces a fault due to a problem with the installation of your air conditioning (i.e. faulty flare connections etc.) this will not be covered under the warranty, therefore it is essential that a certified air conditioning contractor is employed to undertake the installation.

It has been researched that most people are comfortable between 22 and 26 degrees. The same applies to a humidity level of 60% to 75% in summer and 55% to 70% in winter.
