Best Air Conditioner brand for reliability

Air conditioning, fans, and anything related to keeping it cool, such as insulation. This would include any posts generally discussing how to keep it cool, such as which types of blocks are better insulators.... ideal wall thickness for keeping an A/C house cool, etc.

Im also thinking about putting the compressor with " longest distance" on top of the other for redusing both distance and pressure.
My plan is to put the pipes beside the downpour from the gutter for redusing the visual effect as much as possible.


There is no need to put the outside unit on the floor, to keep the lift to the minimum and keep the direct sun off our compressor ours is mounted at the same hight as the indoor unit. Not very pretty but not an area we look at.

And how about the distance. Looking at Picture seems like several meters ?

It is. It's about 3.5 metres, so well within the maximum 15. We didn't want the compressor outside the bedroom so its position is governed by the position of the Livingroom windows.

In fact the compressor is very quiet, so much so that a normal room fan masks the sound in the daytime. But any unnecessary increase in noise at night is to be avoided.
