Locating a split system down the side of your home

 


 

Locating air conditioners down the side of your house

Suburb - Rosanna, Melbourne
In this air conditioning installation all three units where mounted on the back of the house. The clients elected to mount the units up on wall brackets above head height. Even though the units are clearly visible above the brick wall it was a better solution because they use that side pathway as their only access into the back yard.
 
Locating them on the ground would have put them in the way and made access difficult. Fortunatley the allyway on the right of the photo was rarly used so the vivisiblty of the air conditioners was not a worry. Generally we mount the units about 7 foot off the ground, keeping them above most peoples head hight and also a nice height for us to lift them up onto the brackets.
 

Units installed are the Samsung 2.5kw AR09FSSSBWK1 models which are perfect for bedrooms.

Suburb - Thornbury, Melbourne

This installation was a rental property. It is a basic back to back install. The landlord was happy to locate the unit down the side of the house as it still left enough space to get things like bins, wheel barrows etc passed it. Note that the colourbond duct cover was an exact match to the existing trim on the home (manor red).

 

Important point: Being an older style weatherboard home we wouldn't mount the unit on the wall anyway. This unit is a 7KW size model and is to heavy to mount to an old wall like this one. If the client had not of wanted to lose space down the side here, we would have suggested to locate the unit on the roof which was a slightly pitched flat colourbond roof.

The unit installed here is the Midea MSCP-24M4 which is popular with landlords because it is our least expensive brand. It still has a very good efficiency rating, is quiet and comes with a 5 year residential warranty.

The client informed us prior to installation that they are planning on building a decking in the near future right where the air conditioner was to be located.

The solution was to mount it up out of the way clearing the height of the decking floor by about 150mm. Both drains (there are indoor and outdoor drains on the units) were able to be routed to the down pipe to the left of the unit. 

This will eliminate any water damge to the decking once it is built.
