njoy unrivalled performance with our latest 2020 range of electriQ Eco Friendly wall-mounted Air Conditioners. You can using your smartphone to control the temperature and schedule your air conditioner from anywhere. This cost-effective, energy-efficient unit will economically cool or heat rooms up to 30 sqm in size. It has the added advantage of being exceptionally quiet so you will forget it is even there. The unit also features a built-in dehumidifier function to remove excess moisture which further helps improve the air you breathe.

Imagine if, before your commute to/from home, you we're able to control the temperature of your home or office using your smartphone, so the moment you arrive you're welcomed to a toasty warm or perfectly chilled room every time. Well, this is now a reality thanks to electriQ's latest air conditioner with built in Wi-Fi. It connects to your home Wi-Fi in the same way your laptop does, so you can use your smartphone to quickly monitor and manage the temperature, fan speed and a host of other features from practically anywhere.

The Wi-Fi functionality can also help you save money on your energy bills too! Let's say, for example, you're held up in a work meeting and are running an hour late home, just pop your smartphone out and set the air conditioner to turn on an hour later. It gives you instant control at your fingertips - after all, your smartphone is always within easy reach!

To suit your needs and budget, electriQ split air conditioners are available in a choice of 2 different models - eIQ-9WMINV and eIQ-12WMINV. The electriQ Wall Split Inverter air conditioners come with an impressive 5 year warranty. eIQ-9WMINV has a superb energy efficiency rating of A++ for cooling and A+ for heating. This air conditioner features the very latest HFC free compressor Inverter technology that will reduce or increase the compressor speed according to fluctuation in temperature dependent on your required heating and cooling levels, thus saving you between 40%-60% on your energy bill when compared with a non-inverter equivalent which has fixed compressor speed.

What Stands Out

  • 12000 BTU - Ideal for cooling large spaces up to 30 sqm
  • A++/A+ Rating Rated efficiency max 14 pence per hour - Stay cool or heat your room without breaking the bank
  • Does not require installation by an F-Gas registered engineer or specialist equipment for typical installation – everything you need is supplied
  • Eco Friendly: Using latest refrigeration gas with zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and lowest possible global warming potential (GWP)
  • Control the temperature and schedule your air conditioning from anywhere using your smartphone: Alexa and Google home compatible
  • Cools, heats and cleans the air – great for all year round use
  • Doubles up as a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture in the air
  • Self-cleaning with Titanium Gold technology which also cleans the air, reduces the maintenance cost and extends the lifespan of your air conditioner

It is great if you could do it yourself. We had our Mitsubishi Air Conditioning fitted in this week in 2 bedrooms and it took 2 people 1 and half day (1st day was a long day 9am to 7pm) to fit it and test the system. We got it done professionally through F-Gas Safe Engineers as they need to pressure test the system to ensure no leaks etc (that took 4 hours).

Not quite sure what point you are making, but a single aircon unit of this type can be installed as a permitted development as stated in the rules you've quoted. That means you don't need to apply for planning permission

What’s a ballpark cost for this? IMO there is no way this could be a DIY job unless you’re already some sort of tradesman. I’d bugger this right up.
You also know air con units produce heat too aswell as cool air and soon these will be the new standard as trying to slowly phase out gas boilers in the uk
Even if you are in a listed building or conservation area you may still be able to enjoy air condition. If you got a loft and is not converted which is most likely to be the case as you need planning, you can put the inverter in the loft. Just need to make sure lots of cross vent in that space.
Not quite sure how this is meant to be DIY. The installation of these can’t be for average joes. The power connection for a starter is probably a spur and needs to have a spare RCD in the fuse box with additional routing out to external wall plus a junction box and a switch. Then the pipe works which are all pressurised. Then the split heads themselves need power which again will require wiring in the property, most likely to be taking a spur off the wall socket somewhere.

I had a quote from appliances direct last year, 1 inverter 3 split heads £1080, £500 worth of accessories, then another £1200 fitting. Basically labour and capital is 50/50 roughly.

I am going for the same. Had no idea there was a difference between Mitsubishi and MHI. Did you know you can get a wireless module that allows you to control it via an app? It is around £100.

I am going for a single room unit and using someone from work who does our work ones and is suitably qualified and reliable.

A point of note for anyone considering a proper split system. If like ie10 you are thinking about maybe going for two rooms, but maybe at a later date, the outside condenser unit can only run two inside units not one and then another at a later date.
What I am trying to say is that if you want to do one room now and maybe an additional one at a later date, this is not possible. You would have to change the outside unit too as you can’t have one which can do two rooms but only doing one.

Hope it helps.

There absolutely is depending on your CC. I got totally screwed by this after a neighbour grassed me up - cost me several hundreds of pounds to get it resolved. If my PP was rejected I would have had to taken the lot down at my cost.

Don't just assume you can install A/C with no dramas, there's always a curtain twitcher on your street who wants to ruin your day

It won’t be planning permissions it will building control regulation you will apply to say the system is adequately installed to

part F- ventilations
part L - conservation of fuel and power
part P - wiring regulations

I would alway ask the Local council Or building control First Before undertaking, depending on the area you may or may not need it but....

if you follow the instructions from the manufacturer you will cover part F & L. part P should be untaken by a qualified electrician and tested to standard. When you apply these part will have to shown to be covered, building control see a certificate for electric it will be fine

I found being open and honest with them is far better than messing them about as they will just fine you for nothing

For two off 2KW indoor units and 1 off 4KW Outdoor unit, all cost including Electrician (to take a spur off the rings main and fit a rotary isolator) was £3500. After the installation was done, I now appreciate how labour intensive the task was, no way could I do it myself. I also thought to but Air Conditioning system in this country you have to be F-Gas registered.

Most modern a/c units will auto shut down if installed in a sealed loft, or a loft with minimum airflow, you would need significant sized openings to get sufficient airflow for a condenser to operate correctly. Professional installers wouldn’t entertain fitting a condenser in a loft unless each of the gable walls, or the roof had 2m x 2m openings to allow free movement of air.

AC units from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries vs Mitsubishi Electric are like chalk and cheese, they are completely different ends of the air conditioning market.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, tbh, there was not much price difference between MHI and ME, I personally went for MHI as I am getting 7 years warranty (with Annual Service). Also read a lot of reviews before making decision and spoke to a few who have had MHI installed and said no issues whatsoever. Also,MHI are Japanese and one of the core companies of the Mitsubishi Group
Supposed to be self install but you would at least need a vac pump to remove the air from the indoor evaporator unit and pipework before releasing the refrigerant from the condenser into the system - or am i missing something ?

Also just noticed uses R290 (Propane) as the refrigerant so misses F-gas regulations

Toshiba heat pump unit can produce 4.6kw of heat from 1kwh of electricity thus isn’t that much more expensive to run than a gas boiler per kwh. I pay 12.9 per kwh for electricity thus this unit would cost 2.8p per 1kw of heat using electricity. I pay 2.45p per kwh of gas.

Horrible for the environment, I'd never consider refrigerant based air cooling. Evaporative cooling is much more efficient and doesn't contain environmentally dangerous refrigerants.
