Luxe is a professional hair and makeup salon which opened in Uddingston, just outside Glasgow, this summer.

Owner and director Rachel has 12 years’ experience in the industry, having worked not only in city centre salons but on TV and film sets too.

Her impressive CV includes River City, Waterloo Road and Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie.

Keen to establish a good temperature for her clients straight away, Rachel decided to get air conditioning fitted before the salon opened.

She got in touch with B-DACS and asked us to install a suitable system while the salon was being renovated.

Installing an Air Conditioning Unit to Match Luxe’s Interior Design

We recommended going with a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries split system and suggested two alternative approaches.

The first involved fitting a wall-mounted unit, which is the most popular choice for small businesses. It’s the most affordable form of air conditioning and has quick installation times.

However, in the hair and beauty industry, interior design is very important. Given the size of the salon and the overall look Rachel was aiming for, a ceiling-mounted cassette unit was the right option.

Luxe was already going to have a feature wall, which an air conditioning unit would have clashed with, and the salon needed to have mirrors, seats and sinks positioned around the room.

Plans were also in place to drop down the ceiling, which created a large enough space to fit a cassette unit. The ceiling was going to be painted white, which made it easy to find a unit that blended in with the salon’s design.

Positive Feedback from a Successful Installation

The project went well and we completed the installation in a couple of days. The air conditioning system provides heating and cooling for the salon and is controlled by a hard-wired panel in the manager’s office.

The unit we installed is unobtrusive and the salon looks great. It’s located at 18 Main Street, Uddingston and you can find out more about it by visiting their website.

After the air conditioning installation, Rachel had this to say about B-DACS’ work:

“B-DACS were a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job fitting the air conditioning system into our salon. With multiple contractors on site at any given time and with the area so tight, B-DACS’ installers got on with their element of the project in a professional manner and couldn’t have been more helpful.

“I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending B-DACS to anyone and I will certainly be using them again if the need arises.”
