Carla Cameron explores the benefits

There’s no denying that the UK’s weather is famously unpredictable, and the summers are now starting to get longer and hotter. These periods of intense heat make everyday life in the home a little more challenging.

Keeping individual rooms, converted lofts, basements and other living spaces at year-round ambient temperatures can be a real struggle, and day-to-day living can become uncomfortable.

Whilst conventional boilers offer us some comfort in the colder months of the year, it can often feel like there is no respite when warmer weather comes along.

That’s why an increasing number of homeowners are beginning to install air conditioning units within their homes, outbuildings and loft spaces, to ensure they can maintain a comfortable temperature all year round, rather than for just half of the year.

Here, we take a closer look at some of the main benefits our air conditioners offer, whilst also showcasing just how effective air conditioning can be for your home.

Air conditioners offer more than just heating and cooling, they’re also excellent at removing pollutants and viruses from the air

Benefits of air conditioning for your home

Air conditioning brings a whole host of benefits for your property, from helping to regulate temperatures during the night to bringing about a healthier home thanks to our unit’s filtering abilities.

Sleep well, live well - Gone are restless nights, tossing and turning in a hot bedroom when you invest in an air conditioning unit. Simply set a comfortable temperature for your family and rest easy!

Low running costs – Our air conditioning units boast fantastic energy efficiency, which helps you to keep more money in your pocket. Whilst only consuming a low amount of energy, they are extremely efficient and can heat or cool a room effectively.

Limitless installation choices – Our units can be installed in a whole host of areas around your home, including garden rooms, outdoor office spaces, home offices in the loft or any other room in the home you can think of. One of the major benefits of air conditioning is that they can even be installed even if there are sloping walls or low ceilings – instead of a wall mounted unit, you can simply opt for a floor mounted unit.

Quiet and efficient – Whilst they are extremely efficient, air conditioning units are also very quiet, which makes them perfect for home offices if you are working from home. Along with this, they also excel in areas of the home that are prone to retaining heat like garden rooms and loft rooms.

Heating and cooling

Heat and cool your rooms to different temperatures – One of the biggest benefits of air conditioning over other systems is that different temperatures can be set in each room if you have more than one unit in your home.

This means that if you have some family members who prefer things a little warmer or cooler than the rest, they can enjoy a temperature that suits them in their room.

Visualise the unit in your home before purchasing - If you’re considering an air conditioning unit but aren’t 100% sure on where it would be best installed, then our handy app can help.

We have developed the MEView3d app (Apple & Android), which lets you see our range of air conditioning units in situ, so you can be confident that you are making the right decision on unit placement.

A happier and healthier home

Mitsubishi Electric air conditioners offer more than just heating and cooling your home, as they’re also excellent at removing pollutants and viruses from the air and are even proven to reduce allergens around your property.

The Plasma Quad Technology in our air conditioning units provide a filter system that inhibits viruses and bacteria. It also breaks down mould and allergens, whilst absorbing dust and microscopic particles. Essentially, our air conditioning units will make your home more comfortable to live in, with cleaner, purer air.

Alongside this, powerful filters in the units can help to keep pollution out of your home. Air pollution inside can be up to 2-5 times higher than outdoors, so it’s essential you do what you can to reduce this. Several of the more premium air conditioning units on the market include technology that focuses on air filtration and nullifies common pollutants in the home.

Mitsubishi Electric units are capable of neutralising the following:

  • Viruses
  • Bacteria (staphylococcus)
  • Allergens (such as pet fur and pollen)
  • Mould
  • Microscopic particles (PM2.5)
  • Dust


Another benefit of investing in air conditioning technology is that you can actually use a cloud-based app to monitor and control the temperature of your home. Not only can you use this on your PC, Mac, Tablet or Smartphone, you are actually able to control the temperature of your home via voice commands using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

Here are some of the biggest benefits that MELCloud offers for your air conditioning unit, helping you to easily manage and use it effectively:

Control – you can switch your device on or off, wherever you are. This makes it particularly handy if you are outside of your home and want pop your air conditioning on so when you return home, your property is at a temperature that suits your needs.

Planning – MELCloud offers a holiday mode setting, weekly scheduling and live weather feeds that help you to anticipate when your air conditioning unit may need to be used.

Insight – operation mode reports can be viewed, along with electrical energy consumption reports that help you to keep an eye on your energy bills. Although it’s worth reiterating, our units are very energy efficient!
