Air Conditioning Heating & Cooling

Air Conditioning Installation and Servicing Algarve
  • Mural (wall mounted) & Floor Mounted Air Conditioners Mural are the most common units installed in the Algarve. They are usually mounted above doors or high up on the walls and quickly become part of peripheral vision. Floor standing units are mounted on the floor like radiators and their position gives them a bias towards heating.
  • Bulkhead (hidden) & Ceiling Cassette Air Conditioners Some customers prefer the air conditioning to be hidden and these units are mounted in the ceiling or behind grills. The extra installation and technology make these units more expensive - but unobtrusive.
  • Commercial & Larger Villa Installations For larger builds and commercial premises outside space and aesthetic requirements dictate the need for one or two larger external units rather than multiple external units. These solutions can be complex, expensive and are usually installed by the larger companies like ourselves with the experience necessary to get it right!
