How to Install a Split AC This Summer


The summer months can be painful if you don't have the right air conditioning system. While there are many different kinds of air conditioning units, it's up to you which method will work best for you. Regardless of which unit you pick, the process of AC installation in Marietta needs to be done right in order to get the best cooling results. Split AC units are a popular choice that provide optimum cooling when installed correctly. There are a few important tips to follow when installing a split AC this summer.


Placement

When you're installing a split AC system, you want to make sure the wall you choose to install it on is strong enough to support it. If you pick a weak wall in your office or home, you might have the split AC installed only to find out that it will tear through your wall and leave it ruined. You want to have the installation company test your wall in order to make sure it will support the AC's weight completely.


In order to create the best performance of cooling for the room, your split AC unit needs to be placed approximately 7 to 8 feet above the ground.

The indoor unit of split AC also requires at least 15 cm of open space around the top and sides of the unit. This space will allow room for the air to flow and circulate throughout the room properly.


All of these things are crucial to the efficiency of your split AC unit. Be sure to check all of these components, and make sure nothing is done incorrectly during the installation process.


Location

For adequate cooling with indoor and outdoor split AC units, it's important that you mount the split AC away from any sunlight or water. When you place a split AC outdoors, you want to make sure there is no hindrance to the heat coming out of the condenser.


An outdoor unit should also be placed on a flat surface. If you fail to place the split AC on a flat surface, it will vibrate excessively. This vibration can lead to the breakage of many important components of the split AC. Vibrating also creates a lot of unwanted noise that will bother you and your neighbors.


Correct Tilt

The split AC unit needs to be installed with a slight tilt. This tilt will allow unrestricted flow of the condensed water from the drainpipe. While you might easily overlook the tilt, it's one of the most important components towards having a fully functioning split AC.
