INSTALLING A SPLIT SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONER ON A ROOF
Suburb - Ivanhoe, melbourne (townhouse)
These two townhouses each had 6 wall split systems installed. 1 x Samsung 7.0kw AR24FSSSBWK1 and 5 x 2.5kw AR09FSSSBWK1. These units covered the open plan living area, bedrooms and study. As you can see the right and left sides of the house are butted right up against other properties. This made it impossible to locate the out door units at ground level down the sides of the townhouse.
INSTALLING A SPLIT SYSTEM ON A PITCHED ROOF
Suburb - Greensborough, Melbourne
In some cases people will choose to install the outdoor unit up on their roof to keep it out of site. In this installation it was decided because most of the house had decking around it that was used alot for entertaining and the back side of the house didn’t have enough space between the house and the fence. It would have restricted access for things like rubbish bins, wheel barrows and generally moving things in and out of the back yard.
The pipes go out and straight up into the eaves and through the roof to the air conditioner. The drain was neatly saddled to the side frame of the doors and down under the dacking to a drain. Lifting units up onto pitched roofes like this requires safety harnesses and railings and adds costs to the installation. But as you can see, the finished job is nice and neat and the air conditioner hiden from view from the front of the house. It is also hidden when standing down on the decking.
