    Question

    Have installed this for a customer. (Samsung 26,000 btu indoor/outdoor units AD26B1C13 and UD26B1C2) Now Samsung tech says that the indoor unit has a MINIMUM 4 foot high requirement. I can find in the install guide a MAXIMUM height but not a minumum requirement. Does anyone have any ideas on this? Appreciate any input.

    Hmm

    The unit we put in may be having some problems due to high humidity. The home sit right on a lake and right now it's cold here (temps -0 to 35 or so). I'm not sure if that's why Samsung is saying the unit needs to be at min. 4 feet? Any ideas on that? Still, if a mfg. gives you "official" install specs, I like to see them from the mfg. in black and white!

    Just a wild guess- could they mean that they don't want you to mount the indoor unit right at floor level in a room because the air won't circulate properly?

    In other words, could the factory mean that they require a minimum height in the room, not a minimum elevation above the condensing unit?

    I agree. Since hot air rises. The cool air will just pool on the floor. Last summer I saw wall units installed in a glass solarium on a side wall below the curved glass. My feet were cold and you felt warm walking to the room. PTACS with top venting would have worked better.
