Although "hot" is not often a term used to describe the UK weather, we have seen a rise in average summer temperatures in recent years, and many home and business owners now consider air conditioning as a necessity rather than a luxury. In 2018 more than 200,000 aircon units were sold in the UK, and by 2020, although many commercial premises were closed due to the pandemic, 40% of retail floorspace in the UK featured air-conditioning.
If you are one of the many British residents who now see their aircon as necessary as radiators, you'll want to make sure your unit is fully functioning before the warm weather hits.
There are various aircon accessories available that benefit air conditioning and help keep it running smoothly.
Here we have listed the most frequently used AC accessories our customers choose for a high-performing system.
Anti-Vandal Aircon Steel Cage
We stock several anti-vandal, simple to assemble steel aircon cages.
The steel cages are designed to fit the part of your aircon unit that needs to be placed outdoors. Unfortunately, depending on how easy it is to access your outside aircon unit, it may be prone to vandalism. Our steel cages are designed to deter hooliganism and avert accidental damage.
All guards are made to a high-quality standard, and one person can easily put them together.
Universal Air Conditioning Remote Control
Our universal air-conditioning remote controllers are compatible with aircon units from all major manufacturers.
These easy-to-use, time-saving devices are easy to program and control all standard functions. Remote aircon controllers are a must-have aircon accessory, as not only do they have a programmable timer that helps keep utility bills low, but they lengthen the life span of your aircon by limiting unnecessary overuse.
Galvanising Spray Paint
Galvanising spray paint is a corrosion protection treatment that prevents rust. It is fast drying and can be used on light rust or clean metal. Galvanising paint will protect your exterior aircon unit, as it is weather-resistant, prolonging the life of your system.
