RyanUK: Air conditioning units come in a variety of styles but this unit is not so much through-the-wall as through-the-fence.

Ray Voice of London-based Ryan Air Conditioning was recently called to this installation in Kent which was working “below par”. Not that the owners had their knickers in a twist about it – the unit was situated in the premises of a health and naturist spa.

Half of the condensing unit was showing and the other half was on a guests balcony through a fence that had been built after the condenser was installed.

The unit will of course have to be re-sited but, despite the hot weather and the surroundings, the engineers will be required to keep their clothes on due to health and safety requirements.
