Installing the Indoor Section
- Select the location for the fan coil and condensing unit
- The bracket for holding the fan coil must be mounted on the wall
- Connect the wires to the fan coil
- The unit can be placed on the mounting bracket
- The fan coil can be pulled down and it will snap into place on the bracket
The fan coil should be placed in an area of the wall that will allow free air movement. For ease of installation the unit should be located on an exterior wall. The condensing unit should be located where the airflow will not be obstructed by buildings, shrubs, etc.
The top of the bracket should typically be at least four inches down from the ceiling for a high wall unit. Then, a three inch hole should be drilled through the wall to the outside. The easiest way to do this is with a hole saw. It is important that the bracket is installed perfectly level or tilting very slightly toward the drain outlet.
For many units the wiring harness does not come wired to either unit. The wire designations vary with the unit but a diagram is provided to tell you what wire goes to each terminal.
The wires, drain tube and refrigerant line connections should be taped together and pushed through the hole in the wall at the same time. The condensate drain line should be under the refrigerant pipes to ensure proper condensate flow.
