WHERE SHOULD AN INDOOR UNIT BE INSTALLED THROUGHOUT A HOME AND IS THE LOCATION THAT IMPORTANT?
Location is key – If you place an indoor unit in a narrow or small area in your home, air has no room to escape which allows the sensors to believe that the air is at set temperature and will cycle off. It is important to install an indoor unit in an unobstructed area of your home for best air circulation.
SNOW IS COMING, DO YOU HAVE TO KEEP AN OUTDOOR UNIT CLEAR OF SNOW IN ORDER FOR IT TO PERFORM TO ITS POTENTIAL?
Yes/No, with a good unit it should have a pan heater and auto defrost, that should keep it clean but it should be checked after major snow or freezing rain falls.
