Air conditioning units - are they worth it?

How hot does it need to be for an air conditioning unit to be a worthwhile investment? Are they worth it for UK summers?

"Short answer is yes. They do heating and cooling and are much more efficient then a boiler to heat a property. You then have the advantage of cooling in the summer."

"Ideal for hot bedrooms in the summer months, they do tend to dry the air, a glass of water is handy to have by the bedside, it’s important to size up the AC unit correctly for the room size .. it all depends if you want a split unit, or just a portable unit ."
