I would really appreciate anyone's thoughts / experiences on the subject.
I am looking to install an air conditioning system in my property. The property is a two bedroom maisonette. We are looking to install air conditioning as we cannot get ags supplied to the property and was looking to use this as both a cooling and heating system.
We will have to place one unit on the outside of the building and have been informed that planning permission is probably required. Has anyone else had to apply for planning permission for air conditioning? If so, I would greatly appreciate your insight into the process and how best to get such an application approved.
The neighbours on either side of the property do not have any objections to the proposed unit - and there are similar (actually bigger) units in the road servicing restaurants / hairdressers / etc.
Is there any case examples out there which I could use in my case?
I imagine the main objection could be the noise of the unit - which the techincal specification shows it runs no greater than 49db. Would this be too loud? I assume it is all relative to the background noise in the surrounding area but how can I find out what this is???
