a. General. The air conditioner is designed so that it is adaptable to a variety of installation arrangement.
Most typical installations are made by preparing an opening in an exterior wall of the room or enclosure to be
conditioned and positioning the air conditioner so that the front of the cabinet is inside the room or enclosure
and the back outside. Alternate installations may be made with the entire cabinet either inside or outside the
conditioned area. The following are minimum requirements for all installations:
(1) A relatively level surface capable of bearing the weight of the air conditioner on which to set the base.
To insure proper condensate drainage, the surface should be level within 5 from front to back and side to side.
See figure 4-1, Sheets 1, 2 and 3 for mounting dimensions.
(2) An unobstructed flow of air from outside the conditioned area to the intake and discharge of the
condenser fan (back face of air conditioner).
(3) An unobstructed flow of air from inside the conditioned area to the conditioned air supply and
discharge openings (front face of air conditioner).
(4) An unobstructed flow of air from outside the conditioned area to the fresh air intake (back face of air
(5) Access to the front and back of the air conditioner for routine operation and servicing and for
