Where will the RCAC be placed? What is the best position for the RCAC?

Indoor
On walls or ceilings (unless floor standing type)
Over sitting and sleeping areas
In hottest/coldest & most used rooms (e.g. the kitchen)
Near centre of room
Easily accessible
NOT above electrical fittings (which pose a fire hazard)
NOT close to dust or particle sources (which clog filters)

Outdoor
Usually the outdoor component will be on the ground outside the air conditioned room. Check for placement:
On firm concrete base or securely bracketed to wall (so the component won’t vibrate)
As close as possible to indoor component (usually 3-5 m)
Enough space on both sides for regular airflow
Easily accessible
Shaded from direct sunlight (use an awning if needed)
NOT near any corrosive substances
