Air Conditioner Wall or Celing Mount

Postby groucho » Thu Aug 01, 2013 6:56 pm

Hello,

I am a few months aways from actually installing my air-conditioners, there will be 5-7 units. I am inclined to have them fitted on the floor/wall rather than above under my beams. Nothing scientific in my choice, other than for ten years I have had floor/wall mounted air-conditioners and I am happy with the cooling. I usually use them in conjunction with elevated wall mounted fans.

I may be out of date on my thinking as I know that cold air falls, and the high wall mounted units are unobtrusive .. any thoughts on which way is best? Or is it just a matter of taste?

Thanks

Ceiling mount units are very neat and unobtrusive. Just be sure the installers provide
good support for pipes and a decent gradient for the drain line.

Wall mounted units are of course a lot more straightforward which is probably the best
choice in TH.

Right .. today I gave instructions for wall mounted on three floors, the rooms are big and actually have an alcove under the front windows that are a perfect tuck in for the units. Although the ground floor, and mezzanine will have ceiling mounted units because it better suits the space.
