problem solving air conditioning in conservatory.
There must be folk out there with air conditioning in their conservatorues. Mine faces NE, but even without this unusally hot weather, it gets hot, beause we live in a detached bungalow and not overlooked or shaded by anything. Its big, 21x11, so this year we bought the Australian shade blinds for the roof, no way we could afford made to measure blinds. To be honest, I think they would be a nightmare anyway, you get a huge amount of dead flies the glass side, every couple of days I unhook one end, then vacuum them off the floor. We had a unit you put water in the back, I used ice cubes, it gave up the ghost, was debating buying another one, or an air conditing unit with flexy hose to outside, or having a built in unit, (like you get in hotels abroad) have read so many reviews, mind is now boggled, it wont happen till the winter ready for next year, is is worth going the whole hog, what sort of cost are we looking at, installation and running cost, some of the comparission sites they are really expensive to run, (like the one in your car using up all your fuel!) Even a basic model like we had before for a room this size is quite a few hundred pounds, dont want to make the wrong desision.
