    Well the install manual is a little vague, but I found this City Multi bulletin.

    http://meus1.mylinkdrive.com/sfiles/..._Clearance.pdf

    Page 11 shows the S Series side discharge outdoor units. Obviously this different model has difference clearance numbers, but they specifically say no front to back installations.

    MXZ multi head install manual also mentions no front to back.

    I was at a class for a different brand unit and we were talking about this situation. The trainer suggested to try to use a baffle to throw the air up. I would only try this is as a last resort.

    I wouldn't want the headache associated with installing them like that.

    Turn the left one 180 and turn the center one to point away from the wall.

    The only narrower width would be stack them one over the other - all with air intake side facing the wall.

Does that still apply if you’re putting another condenser in front of the fan discharge? I don’t want to cycle condenser fan discharge air into another condenser and run into issues during the summer. I attached a photo of my ideal layout with 20” between units but not sure if it’s accurate.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    I gotta get a pix of a new motel near me. 3 minis just like jbh posted then the last one blows right in the side of a builder Carrier cube condenser! I bet it runs some high heads next summer!

    Installing multiple Mini Split Condensers on a single pad clearances.

    Its pretty much the mo of this company as a whole. Everyone in town knows it. Even the GCs that hire them job after job. No one will touch their prices.
    Its been said they will install a new construction house all equipment and duct for 3500. I cant confirm that though it would not surprise me.
    Most HVAC contractors love this company because they do a great job keeping everyone busy.

    On this same job the guy pulled deep vacuums by the sound of the pump. Brazed lines with no nitro. Ran condensate Drain lines 125 using the mini pumps. Ran lines above manu max recommended length. I can go on.

    Someone told me the install guys are paid by the job, so everything is a race. Again cant confirm.

    I posted maybe 2 years ago on wos with some really winners of this same building.
