Check list for optimal location of indoor fan coil

 #1.   Choose a mounting wall that is strong and solid enough to prevent vibration.

 #2.   Exterior walls are usually best because you must run a refrigeration line to the outdoor unit as well as a condensate line in accordance with building codes.

 #3.   Select a location out of direct sunlight or limit sun exposure as much as possible.

 #4.   Ensure the location has good air circulation.

 #5.   Remove obstacles that may block air flow.

 #6.   Avoid air streams such as a doorways or close proximity to heat sources like kitchens.

 #7.   Make sure there is space in front of the unit for service access.

 #8.   Consider the fan coil unit’s operational noise and install it where the noise won’t be a disturbance. 

 Tips on choosing best location for outdoor unit 

 #1.   Anchor the outdoor unit horizontally on a concrete slab or rigid mount above ground level.

 #2.   Foundation must be level and should not adjoin the building to prevent sound and vibration transmission from unit to  building.

 #3.   If installing beneath a protective awning, make sure that heat radiation from the condenser is not obstructed.

 #4.   Ensure that animals or plants will not be affected by the unit’s discharge of hot air.

 #5.   Discharged air should not be blocked by obstacles.

 #6.   Shield unit fan from strong wind; prevent wind entry by setting unit along a wall or using a dust or buffer plate.

 #7.   Consider unit’s operational noise and choose a location that will not intrude on neighbors or building occupants.

 #8.   Discharged air should not blow toward windows less than 25 feet/7.5 meters away.
