Project: New Air Conditioning/Heat Pump System for a Royal Bedroom
Kensington Palace is a royal residence set in Kensington Gardens, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London. It has been a residence of the British Royal Family since the 17th century. It is currently the official London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Princess Eugenie of York, Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Duke and Duchess of Kent and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
“Mrs. Sylvia Deakin is one of the loveliest lady’s you could ever wish to meet, and it is always a pleasure and a joy to work with Sylvia and her team.”

Jane Churchill Interiors One of our most long-established and well-respected clients, Jane Churchill Interiors of Pimlico London asked Godfrey Lappage to provide them with a quotation for a new heat pump system to replace the existing Panasonic floor mounted system in one of the Royal bedrooms located at the iconic Kensington Palace. Mrs Sylvia Deakin of Jane Churchill Interiors met Alan Godfrey on site and between them they created the perfect design for their Royal client’s bedroom. With Mrs Deakins attention to detail meticulous in every way, the design of the indoor unit was critical for the rest of the design of the bedroom.
Sleek Designed Indoor Unit
A slim type of floor mounted indoor unit was required due to the curtains installed above having to run freely when being opened or closed. A new Fujitsu floor mounted type was the slimmest indoor unit available and was the perfect option for this project. Godfrey Lappage had great pleasure in providing this wonderful historic building with a quotation for a new Fujitsu floor mounted system, and the new slim and sleek designed indoor unit was therefore installed, and the interconnecting pipework, cables and condensate drain pipe was run down an existing black cast iron downpipe, so we could keep the historic look of the building intact.
“It was an honour and a pleasure to be able to offer our services to not only Mrs Sylvia Deakin and her team but also to work in such a historic and iconic building as Kensington Palace.”

Outdoor Unit Location
The outdoor unit was located in the same position as the previous outdoor unit in the small front garden area. The unit was installed on specialist anti-vibration rubber feet to keep noise to a minimum. With a low running noise and inverter driven technology, these types of systems provide energy efficiency to a very high level. Once installed the system was commissioned and left in full working order. It is always a joy and a privilege to work with Mrs Deakin of Jane Churchill Interiors. This is one of many projects Godfrey Lappage has completed with Mrs Deakin and the installation was thoroughly enjoyed by the Godfrey Lappage Installation Team.
