Air Conditioning Units

Post by Globetrotter » December 19th, 2015, 5:20 pm

Hi Everyone,


I'm planning to install Air Conditioning in a small villa. Has anyone else had this done, if so some recommendations and dos/don'ts would be appreciated. :grin:

Considering bringing one out from the UK, as I can source a unit with the cooling capacity I'd like very reasonably, so recommendations on a fitter/tradesman also gladly received.

Thanks,


Dan :cool:

I have aircon in the main bedroom only at the moment, but I'm waiting for a price to get aircon in all the bedrooms, I'm planning for each unit to have its own extractor, I'm waiting for a price for aircon on its own , or units that also heat, it was also mentioned on this site about using an air source heat pump, I'm over in mid Feb, so hoping it would be all installed by then, :smile:

The heat pump units are what I've been looking at - they do seem like a good option. Plus the dehumidifying setting will be invaluable.

I do know someone in Es Castell who is a AC engineer. I thought I had is number in my phone but don't. His name is Rolland, if the number turns up I'll message you.

For anyone looking at options for heating, cooling and insulation, I highly recommend reading this, for a clear explanation with unbiased real world assessments of the effectiveness of different options.

"Without hot air"
http://www.withouthotair.com/c21/page_146.shtml

Air source heatpumps seem like a great option for Menorca, perhaps to work together with a central wood-burning stove.

The rest of the book (all on the website, for free) is great too.

Air Conditioning installation

Post by Grandy » October 22nd, 2018, 11:27 pm

Hi all,
I'm in the process of buying a 3 bed villa in Binibequer. First job is to install a heatpump air con system. (nothing at all atm)
Any recommendations for equipment and especially installers welcome please?

One easy way of ordering is Amazon. This unit seems excellent value and has good reviews...

Any one using one? I need up to 4 probably a multi split system.

I also **know and can recommend Rolland [**There can't be more that one Rolland AC engineer??] I also believe he's an electrician too.

My initial post was made a while ago and now Rolland is no longer working due to a very unfortunate Stoke he suffered a couple of year back.
