For the Outdoor unit:img15.jpg

 

  • A place where the unit is not exposed to strong wind.
  • It should be a place where there is no chances of direct sunlight and rain.
  • A solid wall which prevents vibration  and is strong enought to hold the outdoor unit weight.
  • A place where there is no plants(especially climbing plants) and small animals cannot access.

 

 

 

For the Indoor unit:img14.jpg

 

  • A place where the airflow is not blocked.
  • A place where cool air can be distributed throughout the room.
  • The indoor unit should be installed at a place where there is no sunlight.

Choosing the height and distance of the indoor and outdoor units from the ground and wall facings :

 

  • Please see the above mentioned diagram to get the exact idea of the installation standards.
  • A special care should be taken to install the outdoor unit such that it faces the atmospheric surroundings.
  • The Indoor unit that is installed inside the room should always be at a greater height from the outdoor unit.
  • The length of the pipe that connects indoor and outdoor unit should be atleast 3 metres.
  • The height difference between the indoor and outdoor unit from the ground depends on the length of the pipe used.
Correct location for installation of Window type air conditionersClick to Expand

For a window type AC, the best height is 3-4 feet from the floor. If you are fixing the AC very close to the wall or in an airtight room it will trip due to high head pressure, as heat dissipation can't happen. Distance must be more than 900 mm after fixing the air-con and top of the shaft should not be closed.

Place Selection

 

  •  Make sure that you install the unit in an area that provides good ventilation. The air conditioner must not be blocked by any obstacle affecting the air flow near the air inlet and air outlet.

 

  •  Make sure that you install the unit in an area which can endure the weight and vibration of the unit. 

 

  • Make sure that you install the unit away from heat or vapour.

 

  • Make sure that you install the unit in an area where the cold air can evenly spread in a room.

 

  • Make sure that you install the unit in an area which provides easy drainage for condensed water.

 

  • Make sure that you install the unit in an area not exposed to rain or direct sunlight. (Install a separate sunblind if exposed to direct sunlight.)

 

  • Do not install the unit in an area subjected to noise or vibration amplification which may affect your neighbour.
