The comfort of the residents directly depends on the correct microclimate in the apartment that is clean air, humidity and temperature. The latter significantly affects not only the well-being, but also the performance and health of a person.
The air conditioning system in the apartment is designed to regulate the air temperature in the room during the prevalence of high external temperatures. The key factor in the implementation of an air conditioning system is the selection of equipment: the right power, energy efficiency, reliability and aesthetics.
Attention! The air conditioning system cannot replace the ventilation system! Even if the manufacturer specifies the function of adding fresh air, its volume is not enough to ensure complete ventilation of the premises.
During the calculation and selection of the system, a number of factors, affecting heat flow into the premises:
For air cooling can be used systems differing in: the type of circuit, the number of outdoor units and the location.
Formation of operation principle and components of a future system
This stage is the first and fundamental. It involves a meeting with a client, where the characteristics of the object, the client's wishes and the budget are discussed. Based on this information, it is already possible to form a general idea about the future climate system. In addition, exactly at this stage, the client can understand whether the approach of the company and the intended implementation of the system is pleasant.
Without this step, it is impossible to move on to the subsequent stages of the implementation of the engineering system in the house or apartment.
A package of documents with drawing and specifications for the system
The design of the internal engineering system is the first stage of its implementation at the facility. It includes the development of drawings with diagrams, plans, accurate calculations and indications of the dimensions and location of the ventilation system elements. The project also contains a specification, a task for builders, electricians, plumbers and a feasibility study for the choice of equipment. For reliability and a better result, you need to order the design of a ventilation system in specialized design and installation organizations at the stage of construction or reconstruction of a building in order to avoid possible complications and unnecessary material costs.
Several options of the system - for different budgets
This stage is possible only after carrying out calculations, which correspond to the power and functionality of the future system. The cost of the future project is adjusted precisely due to the equipment - depending on the equipment, the price of the entire system changes. The cost of aerodynamics remains unchanged in all 3 variants, since a decrease in the price of a strapping entails a decrease in its area, which will lead to incorrect operation or increased noise characteristics. Alter Air provides several equipment options - depending on the selected system pricing policy. Nevertheless, we always focus on manufacturers, proven by time and experience.
Installation of equipment by certified teams according to the project
Installation of a climatic, water treatment or power supply system provides for the installation of equipment in strict accordance with engineering and structural calculations and drawings. This kind of work is most competently performed by specialists from design and installation organizations that provide services in a complex: design, installation and commissioning of the system. The installation of the internal engineering system is carried out in stages: marking the locations of equipment and air ducts, installation of installations, insulation, assembly and connection of system units, connection of drainage and power supply, start-up and commissioning, completion of repair work, installation of ventilation grilles and consoles.
Setting up and checking the efficiency of the system before starting it
During commissioning, the power cables of the system are connected, start-up, adjustment and debugging of the working climate system are carried out. If all installation steps are followed, the installation will run smoothly and efficiently. At this stage, the most important task is to check the installation and configure the system in accordance with the project. Without commissioning, it is impossible to hand over the system to the client.
Maintenance and monitoring of the system after its start
Alter Air is not just another online store that deals exclusively with the sale of equipment, but a full-fledged design and installation organization, the scope of which is much wider. We are engaged in service maintenance of air conditioners, fans, ventilation units, we carry out repair of water purification filters, repair of an air humidifier in Kiev and Ukraine, restoration of battery and much, much more. Service maintenance of systems is an important stage, since the client, in the process of interacting with the climate system, may notice certain aspects that need to be corrected or reconfigured. Service and repair of many systems can be carried out even remotely - Alter Air specialists are always in touch.
When choosing an air conditioning system a significant factor is the location of the indoor unit of air conditioners.
Alter Air uses only 4 types of indoor units for its projects: wall-mounted, duct, floor and intra-floor. This is due to their effectiveness, ease of use and the possibility of being integrated into the interior.
Drawing presents example of a project by Alter Air specialists, where duct air conditioning is implemented in apartment in the Tetris Hall residential complex. For the most comfortable and effective cooling in living room and dining room, a Daikin FBA50A duct-type air conditioner is used. Еquipment itself is located in bathroom (to save height of ceiling in room), and cold air is supplied through Madel LOOK CM slot diffusers.
For bedrooms, Daikin FDXM35F and FBA35A duct units are used. Principle of placement is the same - they are mounted in second bathroom, and cold air is supplied through linear diffusers.
The air conditioning system in the apartment is one of the most important systems for ensuring a healthy and comfortable microclimate. We recommend that the design and selection of equipment should be done by the specialists - they will select the optimal power of the equipment and its correct placement.
Among all the options presented, Alter Air recommends duct type air conditioning in an apartment, as it is the most efficient and comfortable air cooling system.
If you are in doubt about which air conditioning system to choose, call 0-800-33-08-28 and our specialists will select an option that will meet all your requirements and budget.
At first, it may seem that design is a step that can be overlooked and thereby save money. But we are sure that this opinion is wrong, because with it you get a system according to your budget, which works efficiently, it is well placed and works in conjunction with other engineering systems.
An efficient system that suits all room parameters
Designing allows you to calculate and visually create the system as accurately as possible. A complete package of design documentation includes drawings with diagrams, plans, precise calculations and indications of the dimensions and location of the ventilation system elements. The project also contains a specification, a task for builders, electricians, plumbers and a feasibility study for the choice of equipment. This will make the result accurate and technically sound.
Aesthetics and productivity of a climate system are result of common work
Coordination with interior designers and architects is an important part of making a system that is not only effective but also aesthetically pleasing. Constant contact with designers will also speed up the implementation process - no party will redo their projects and waste their time, and the client will get the best result.
Interaction with "subcontractors" (installers, builders, electricians)
The facility often employs several specialists or companies, each of which has its own area of responsibility. But all zones are most often connected to each other. Alter Air provides specifications and tasks for related specialists, which are in one way or another related to the implementation of our climate systems. This allows you to avoid stagnation in the work process and achieve a better result.
Complex projects for several systems - saving time and nerves
The Alter Air team includes specialists from all climatic areas - ventilation, air conditioning, heating, water purification and water treatment, etc. This allows you to create complex systems projects and integrate systems into each other. This approach is an absolute advantage of our company, because the client can get the implementation of all climatic systems in one company.
The ability to clearly plan the budget for the climate system
Designing will allow you to see the exact estimate before the start of installation work, you can choose a system within the strict limits of the allocated budget. Alter Air offers the client several financial variations of the system in order to choose the most comfortable and suitable one. With the package of documentation, the client will receive a clear understanding of the cost of the project in order to be able to plan their expenses.

In our work, we are like a family doctor - we treat your home, analyze a problem, offer solutions to it, and not just sell pills like a pharmacist in a pharmacy.
We chose Alter Air to bring our cool engineering project to build our own home. Now the following systems are installed in the house: heating with a heat pump, underfloor heating, supply and exhaust ventilation with heat recovery, which allows you to keep moisture and easily breathe fresh clean air. The house maintains an excellent temperature of + 22 ° C - no stuffiness and dust. Everything is magical!
I looked at several companies on the Internet and settled on the Alter Air company. After talking with their specialists, I realized that people are very well versed in their business. They sensibly explained how to implement home heating and ventilation correctly and with minimal cost. During my stay in a new house, I have already experienced the operation of these systems, and especially the ease of control. The temperature in the house is comfortable and kept at a given level. The ventilation works inaudibly, but noticeably - with the windows closed in the morning it breathes freely and easily, there is no dust. I am very pleased with the work of Alter Air and I will recommend you as a good performer who does quality work!
If you feel uncomfortable in the apartment because of the temperature, the answer is yes. If there is no need to cool the apartment during the summer period, then it is possible not to install air conditioning system.
Alter Air has been working in the climatic market for many years, so we know which brands have proven themselves in terms of reliability and efficiency.
If you are looking for equipment, which is going to serve for many years, we recommend paying attention to Daikin, LG and Mitsubishi Electric. In terms of pricing, they are not cheap, but the build quality, workmanship and improved functionality justify their price.
Amore budget option is Cooper & Hunter.
Both options are used for air distribution, but diffusers have proven themselves much better in terms of comfort for many years. Residents do not feel the air currents coming from the diffusers, which is an absolute advantage.
In its projects, Alter Air predominantly uses TROX and MADEL LOOK concealed linear diffusers.
