Air Conditioning Controls for New and Existing Systems

  As both NICEIC Approved electrical contractors and F Gas qualified Air Conditioning engineers C Gascoigne Ltd can offer new and existing customers our experience in control systems for their Air Conditioning installations. We regularly encounter buildings where air conditioning systems are running needlessly in unoccupied rooms and set on unrealistic temperatures by the occupants leaving the bill payers to pick up the tab.  This is both harmful for the environment and the wallet.  By using a little intelligence and quite often some simple control devices the air conditioning can be brought back under control by lowering heating/cooling loads, reducing run times and in turn bringing down running/maintenance costs.  C...

Monobloc/Through The Wall Combined Indoor Air Conditioning Unit and Heat Pumps

What is a monobloc/through the wall combined indoor air conditioning unit and heat pump?

This can be an advantage where space outside is of a premium or external aesthetics is an issue such as listed buildings, hotel bedrooms, conservatories and the like.

Are monobloc/through the wall air conditioning units available with heat pumps built in?

Yes, monobloc air conditioning units can be purchased with a heat pump so the unit can deliver both cooling and heating as required.

Wall Mounted Electric Heaters v’s Air Conditioning

The Most Efficient Electric Space Heaters for Offices, Hotel Bedrooms and more…

Traditionally electric heaters have been ugly buzz boxes on the wall pushing dry heat around a room through a noisy cheap fan motor with little to no thought for cost or efficiency. Whilst in the large part this remains to be the case, there are other much cheaper to run more efficient and intelligent systems on the market today. It is the purpose of this article to introduce the reader to these systems and hopefully give some understanding on how these boxes of seemingly magical powers work.
