Choosing your wall mounted air conditioner

Controlling Air Con from Tablet

What features should I look for in an air conditioner?

When selecting your wall mounted air conditioner there are some features you can expect as standard that include adjustable heating/cooling settings, dehumidifier and adjustable timers. Yet there are further useful functions you can enjoy if you choose the right brand.

So, to help you make the best choice, we’ve listed a few of the key attributes to look for:

If you’re looking at the economy end of the range, here are some suggestions…

  • Quiet in operation

Check that the air conditioner you’re considering isn’t going to be noisy. You should specify sound levels of 21dB(A) or lower. The Mitsubishi Classic, for example, can operate to this level, while the Toshiba Seiya is extremely quiet, operating at just 19dB(A) in silent mode.

  • Energy efficiency

Lower energy consumption will save you cost and is better for the planet too!

Both the Mitsubishi Classic and Toshiba Seiya, include an intelligent control to improve the energy efficiency of your air conditioning, reducing consumption by up to 25%.

If you’re happy to spend a little more on your air conditioning, mid-range units offer even better energy efficiency and are quieter still in operation, (the Daikin Sensira, for example, operates at just 3dB(A) in silent mode and can reduce energy consumption by about 80% in standby mode). Plus you can expect a few extras…

  • Comfort mode

Air conditioning is all about comfort – keeping you cool in the summer and warm in winter. Mid-range units like the Daikin Sensira take that commitment to comfort up a notch, guaranteeing draught-free operation, preventing air being blown directly onto your body, while the Mitsubishi AP features double vanes for super even distribution of airflow.

  • Auto cooling-heating changeover

Most modern air conditioners provide heat as well as cool air, depending on the season. The clever Daikin Sensira saves you the trouble of making the change by automatically selecting the correct mode to achieve your required temperature. What’s more, its powerful mode helps you boost heating or cooling rapidly, returning to preset mode once you’ve achieved optimum comfort.

For real luxury, spoil yourself with a premium air conditioning system like the Mitsubishi LN, which offers the latest innovations…

  • Plasma Quad Plus Technology

Helping neutralise viruses, bacteria, allergens and other contaminants, you can enjoy the purest of air year round – say goodbye to hayfever and winter colds with this fabulous feature!

  • Smart i-see sensor

Designed to keep you as comfortable as possible, the Mitusbishi LN’s smart sensor automatically monitors room occupancy and accommodates body temperature accordingly.

  • Built-in Wifi

While other models offer Wifi as an optional extra, this comes as standard Mitsubishi LN, with monitoring via MELCloud app. It is both Google and Alexa Voice Control compatible, putting you in complete control of your air conditioning system, wherever you are.
