What to Consider with the Location of Your New Air Conditioning System

Author: Lance Wiggers

When it comes to beating the summer heat, there’s nothing quite like an air conditioner to cool down the house. If you’re in the market for a new air conditioner, it’s not only the brand that’s important – it also needs to be installed in the correct spot in the home. As experts in installing air conditioning Mandurah, let’s take a look at the best spot for your new system so you receive maximum benefit.



Airflow is one of the most important factors with the location of your air conditioner – you could have the best air conditioner on the market but it won’t matter if the cool air can’t flow properly. Your individual system will have its own requirements around airflow and your installation technician will be able to advise. Factors such as the ventilation in the room, the location of windows, nearby light fittings and any obstructions will have to be considered. Remember that the best location for your air conditioner may not be the most central.


While some air conditioning systems are incredibly quiet, there are others which make a little bit more noise. For this reason, you need to consider the noise factor when it comes to the location of your system. For example, you need to be aware that some cheaper brand external units can cause problems with your neighbours and may not comply with local council requirements.


It’s not just the area of the house you need to consider when you’re planning to install your air conditioner, such as the bedroom or living area, you also need to think about the spot it will sit on the wall. It needs to sit high enough on the wall to compensate for the fact that cool air will sink to the bottom of the room. If it’s positioned too low, you won’t feel the full benefit. However, remember that you also need to maintain it, so don’t place it so high that it’s impossible to get to!

External unit

With your air conditioner installation, it’s not just the more visible interior system you need to think about – there’s also the external unit. The external unit is generally placed on the outside wall of the room being cooled by the system but you need to ensure it’s in a stable spot with plenty of airflow. It also needs to be easily accessible for maintenance and preferably in an area which isn’t too prone to getting dirty. Also remember that your air conditioning system will have to work overtime if it’s exposed to direct sunlight, so a sheltered location is best.
