Living in the UK, we are unfortunately only subject to a few weeks of sunshine a year. During the summer months, air conditioning is a necessity when it comes to cooling down the temperature of your space by removing the heat and moisture from the room. When thinking of possible ways to improve a working environment, functioning air conditioning might not be the obvious answer. However, air conditioning units can benefit many different businesses such as factories and offices in a multitude of ways. At Ian Hobbs Technical Services, we are the leading air conditioning experts in the South West who are able to provide your business with the highest quality air conditioning service, whether that be installation, breakdown repair or routine maintenance.

So why exactly should you hire a professional air conditioning team to carry out the task for you? This handy guide is going to help explain.

Where is Air Conditioning Needed?

Whilst this list is not exhaustive, here are just three places where air conditioning can be fitted.


Air conditioning is vital when it comes to ensuring that your employees are comfortable. It has been found that the air conditioning in an office can actually impact the productivity of staff too. Also, with new modern systems being extremely quiet, this means that your staff are undisturbed from their work. A closed and confined office environment is susceptible to coughs and colds which can result in employees calling in sick. Fortunately, air conditioning units have filters that purify the air and minimise the risk of bacteria, odours and dust particles from entering the working environment.


If you own a supermarket or corner shop, you want to ensure that the chilled goods are chilling at a comfortable temperature. If you are looking for your store to be left at a comfortable temperature whilst also being energy-efficient, it is best to have air conditioning installed.

At Ian Hobbs Technical Services, our ventilation engineers are able to design air conditioning systems that fit seamlessly into any superstore. For just one example of how we fitted an air conditioning system into a superstore, take a look at the work we completed in a Co-Operative store in Radstock. We are a business that is proud to make a difference when it comes to the opening of your store.


We spend most of our time in our homes, that’s why domestic air conditioning installation is a welcomed addition to any home. No matter what the weather is, air conditioning allows you to control the temperature of your home. Especially on those hot summer nights, to achieve a good sleep you will want to have a cooling system. Air conditioning can also help with the security aspects of your home too. For instance, instead of leaving windows and doors open on a hot day or night, air conditioning can be used to provide a cool temperature in your house. This will help to prevent any thieves or vandals from accessing your home.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Air Conditioning Engineer or Installer

Helps you Choose

One of the main benefits of choosing a professional to undertake this task is to actually assess and advise you on what would air conditioning unit would be best for you and your environment. This completely removes the possibility of the air conditioning unit being too small or too big for your space. If you were to choose an air conditioning unit that doesn’t fit your area, then this would cost you more money and time to have this removed and replaced.


If you decide to install an air conditioner by yourself, then you might run into some energy consumption issues if you make any mistakes. A potential issue that can arise surrounding this would be more energy being used than is actually required. The more energy you use correlates with a higher utility bill,  therefore hiring a professional means you are using less energy and saving money.

Safety First

Installing air conditioning from a DIY approach is dangerous. As well as making sure you’ve actually fitted the unit correctly, there are other hazards such as blades, electrical parts and metallic shards. By hiring an experienced professional air conditioning installation company, you know that you are safe from any potential injuries or accidents.

Professional air conditioning companies also have a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to the actual installation process, so they know how to complete the job and ensure the unit is functioning properly. If you instead opt for a DIY approach, then this increases the chance of you missing a step of the process – leaving you with a dysfunctional air conditioning unit. Not only this, but hiring professionals means your air conditioning is installed much quicker than attempting to do it yourself.

It is therefore important to enlist the help of a company that knows exactly what they are doing. At Ian Hobbs Technical Services, we know exactly what it takes to install an air conditioning unit. Whether it be a single air conditioning unit or a complete office development, we have the expertise and knowledge to create a more comfortable and energy-efficient environment.

The Right Equipment

A lot of different equipment is required to actually install an air conditioning unit. Both ventilation engineers and installers have all of the appropriate equipment such as; electrical testers, cordless drill, ladder, wet and dry vacuum and all of the necessary safety equipment. Although this is only some of the equipment, if you were to attempt the installation yourself then you would need to invest in all of the appropriate tools. Therefore hiring a professional can save you money in the long run.

Less Stress for Yourself

Having a professional complete the job means you don’t have to worry about the logistics and implications of the air conditioning installation. Knowing that your air conditioning unit has been fitted by a competent and skilled team will give you peace of mind that the job has been completed properly. Furthermore, considering that the air conditioning unit will have been installed properly, this massively reduces the risk of any future repairs that might cost you in the future. However, if you choose to complete the installation yourself, then the possibility of a future repair is amplified.

Hiring an Accredited Contractor

One aspect to look out for when choosing your air conditioning installation company is whether they are approved by any accreditation bodies. Accreditation is important when choosing a business to complete the work, as it shows external recognition that the company are legitimate and perform their duty with integrity.

At Ian Hobbs Technical Services, we are proud to be approved by many different accreditation bodies including; BEES, Constructionline, OFTEC and Trust Mark. Accreditation bodies such as TrustMark ensure that companies comply with their government-endorsed quality for workmanship. This particular body provides trust, confidence and further peace of mind to clients. To see the full list of accreditation bodies we are approved by, visit the bottom of our homepage.
