LOCATING A SPLIT SYSTEM DOWN THE SIDE OF YOUR HOME
LOCATING AIR CONDITIONERS DOWN THE SIDE OF YOUR HOUSE

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.
