I think you'll find that 'climatisation' refers to the more basic kind of blown air heating/cooling systems, as commonly found in retail premises, hotel rooms etc., and which is colloquially referred to as 'air-conditioning' in layman's terms
'conditionnement air', on the other hand, refers to true technical air-conditioning, which may include particle filtration, fresh air bleed, humidification, or of course de-humidification, de-ionization, etc., etc.
Quite how you choose to differentiate between those 2 concepts in EN I'm not sure!
