When choosing a new heat pump / air conditioning system, you may find yourself choosing between a floor mounted unit and a wall mounted one. When choosing between floor or wall mounted heat pump / air conditioners, you will need to consider the parameters of your space, both in terms of size and aesthetics.
Floor mounted heat pump / air conditioners can be beneficial in specific situations. Floor mounted units are easier to install, as they are able to be positioned close to existing electrical outlets and require little to no structural support. Their location also makes maintenance a simple job. Floor mounted heat pump / air conditioners are great at heating a room quickly and efficiently due to their low location, and could be ideal for colder climates. A floor mounted system could also be ideal for buildings where wall space is limited.
Wall mounted heat pump / air conditioners are a popular choice for a wide variety of applications. Their space-saving design is ideal for tight spaces, and their sleek look gives a modern feel to your room. Wall mounted heat pump /air conditioners are ideal for quick cooling of a space, as the air is delivered from a higher location in a more even distribution.
Some rooms do not have the wall space for a wall mounted unit, while others may be fully decorated. In both these cases, a floor mounted heat pump / air conditioner is a great option of providing hot or cool air to the room.
Vaulted or cathedral-like ceilings prohibit the installation of a wall mounted heat pump / air conditioner. In this instance, a floor mounted heat pump / air conditioner is still a suitable way of heating or cooling the room.
For sheer ease of installation and access, a floor mounted heat pump / air conditioner is a worthwhile option. Simple maintenance, such as filter changes and leak checks, are far easier on a floor mounted unit than a wall mounted one.
On the other hand, your home may lack the floor space to accommodate a heat pump / air conditioning system. A wall-mounted heat pump / air conditioner frees up floor space while still providing efficient heating and cooling of your home.
A smaller space is ideal for a wall mounted heat pump / air conditioner to provide maximum heating or cooling efficiency while saving you floor space.
Wall mounted heat pump / air conditioners can be positioned in an unobtrusive location and their sleek design means they will complement any existing furniture or decor in the room.
Ultimately, your choice of heat pump / air conditioning installation depends on the characteristics of your space. If you would like to view our range of heat pump / air conditioning systems, browse our product selector more information.
