In the video below, I explain how to work out if your garden studio windows are north facing. If they are north facing, you probably won't need the cooling aspect of an air conditioner in your garden office...(see my comments at the bottom of this page, about costs)
Hi There, Alex and I discuss the Air Conditioning Units in the videos below...
, , , ,
STANDARD AC UNIT SPEC (installed in 95% of Garden Studios)...
LARGE AC UNIT SPEC (installed in very large Garden Studios)...
As a guide to AC costs...
A/C. 10 year cost including purchase at 14.1p per kWh £2,600
Conventional 3.2 kw electric radiator with built in thermostat control and hand held remote.
10 year cost including purchase at 14.1p per kWh £5,280 and no cooling facility.
This doesn't allow for the fact that the cooling mode still uses electric and so you would have
to allow for that.
I believe the AC purchase is more of a "comfort" decision as the room is
generally more comfortable than having a conventional electric heater.
I do have a Which report summary if you decide to buy a normal heater. Let me know if you'd like to see that
and I can email it to you.
Also, bear in mind that an AC can be fitted retrospectively so you could try a summer and winter

My apologies for not writing sooner but I just wanted to let you and the team know how pleased I am with the garden studio.
The fitter team were great and everything went smoothly I am pleased to say. I have completed the internal painting and fitting out of furniture etc so my long awaited garden office is up and running. With the wonderful summer weather the aircon has been a real boon!
The only very minor problem was that the matching aircon fused switch was not packed so the team sourced one locally. They said they would send on the matching one to me and I would be grateful if you could arrange that. Could you also let me have a receipt for the payment etc.
Once again many thanks to the whole team and the efficient and hard working fitters.
I have to say I am impressed with the way the office all fits together – you guys have really got this thing down!
