Air conditioning installation has to be executed by professionals who know what they are doing because there are many aspects that need to be professionally assessed before you place the units in the required locations.
Convenient indoor unit applications
Manufacturers after many years of Research and Development (R&D), have brought out different designs in split system air conditioning indoor units which are able to be installed at any type of indoor location.
These units are available in Wall mounted units, Ceiling suspended units, Floor units and Compact Cassette type ceiling concealed units.
Calculate cooling capacity
To begin with, the area which requires the air conditioning has to be assessed and the cooling capacities required should be calculated and if there are any openings that could cause a loss of cooling, those have to be sealed if not any loss of cooling could have a direct impact on the unit installed.
It is imperative that optimum cooling should be forthcoming from the unit installed or its performance could be hindered and frequent breakdowns would be experienced.
Select the most ideal position for the indoor unit
For optimum efficiency the air conditioning installation team should select the most ideal and appropriate location either on the wall, if it is a Wall Unit, or on the ceiling if it is a Ceiling unit, or on the floor for a Floor unit or for the more sophisticated Compact Cassette type ceiling concealed unit which are priorities.
The air conditioning installation team should take extra care to ensure that the indoor unit is placed in such a location that cool air distribution is even within the room and installing it in the center of either the wall, or the ceiling or the most ideal location on the floor would be appropriate whilst providing optimum cooling.
The height at which the indoor unit would be installed should also be taken into serious consideration, because higher the unit the more volume of hot air it has to contend with to ensure optimum cooling hence this exercise should have been addressed, when the initial cooling calculations were conducted and the required indoor unit selected.
Select an ideal location for the outdoor unit
The outdoor unit needs optimum ventilation as its inbuilt fan expels heat and any obstructions could have a direct bearing on its efficiency.
The outdoor unit has to be placed as close as possible to the indoor unit though it has provisions to be extended to a maximum of 15 meters, doing so could drop its efficiency to a certain extent hence placing the outdoor unit where its noise does not affect the inside should be primarily considered when the air conditioning installation is carried out.
Electricity connections could be provided to either the outdoor or indoor unit but in air conditioning units of higher cooling capacities it would be necessary to connect the outdoor unit to the electricity as per manufacturer’s specifications and for safety reasons.
