What we do
With over 30 years’ collective experience in the AC industry, we can install the perfect air conditioning unit for you, regardless of location. Whether you’re looking for a home AC unit, a set of units for your office, or the means to circulate air around an entire multi-storey building, Arctic Cooling Services will be able to help.
Our products are as efficient and designed to handle the workloads required of them. We are constantly striving to improve them while providing you with the latest models featuring eco-friendly features and advancements in efficiency.
There are multiple different types of standard AC unit so we recommend you take the time to consult with our team to find out which one will be best for you. Our engineers are highly-skilled and knowledgeable on all types of AC unit application and will be able to advise you based on your individual situation.
Although there are thousands of different AC unit types, they can be sorted into three main commercial categories.
Single Split AC Units
If you’re looking for an affordable air conditioning solution, single splits may be the best option for you. They’re commonly used in small commercial outlets such as small offices, cafes, and server rooms. Single splits provide heat and cool air to single rooms whilst the unit remains outside and away from the actual intended circulation area.
Though they can also be used to heat and cool larger industrial spaces, this can only be achieved by combining multiple single splits – you’ll need space to store all the outside units.
Arctic Cooling Services will advise you whether this is the best option for you as it is cheaper than installing a central system. Additionally, should one unit require repairs, the others will still function as normal, meaning only one room or area would be without AC until an Arctic Cooling Services engineer arrived to fix the problem.
Multi-Split AC Units
Just like how single-splits direct air outside for filtration, multi-split AC units work in a similar manner, except the pipework is slightly more complex. Depending on the model and your level of requirement, you may be able to connect up to nine indoor units to a single outdoor unit.
You’ll find multi-split AC units are commonly used in locations such as shops, doctors’ surgeries, and offices, to name but a few.
A multi-split unit is also a space-saving choice, making them the preferred solution for places where outdoor space is limited.
Multi-split units also offer the option of combining both wall, floor, and ceiling mounted AC units, meaning they’re more versatile than single splits. However, they do require more pipework than several single-splits would which we take into consideration when quoting you an installation figure.
VRV/VFF AC Units
VRV stands for variable refrigerant volume, a term coined and patented by Daikin.
Due to the copyright issue, most manufacturers will call this type of AC unit ‘VRF’, which stands for variable refrigerant flow. Don’t get confused – they mean the same thing.
This type of AC installation is split into two categories of its own: heat pump and heat recovery.
Heat pump systems either provide cooling or heating to a building at any one time and are commonly used for open plan areas.
Heat recovery systems provide both heating and cooling to different areas at the same time. They’re very efficient, too – they recover heat from around the building and use it to heat other rooms and hot water. This flexibility means heat recovery VRFs are popular in many larger commercial spaces such as mixed-use buildings.
Installation is surprisingly simple for such an extensive network of individual units, which is great news for busier companies who are looking to minimise disruption.
