The steps for the installation of the air conditioner

To install a reversible air conditioner, start with the administrative procedures. If it is an individual or collective dwelling, it is important to make a declaration and an agreement of the owner or the sign. This is legally necessary. The installation of the two-block device necessarily involves the modification of the facade insofar as the second is fixed inside the building or house. A declaration to the town hall of your city before carrying out work on the façade.

The study of the location

The study of the installation is essential to guarantee the functionality of the device and comfort in all rooms. Due to the 2 blocks that compose it, the device can not be put anywhere. But it must be put in a location away from pipes and cables. To agree on the best location for your air conditioner respect these 4 tips from professionals:

  • The layout of the room
  • The interior configuration of the room
  • Exterior configuration
  • Air quality

The outdoor unit must be placed at a minimum distance of 6 m from the vicinity. In addition, in the case of a heat pump, 10 m must separate the air conditioner at the neighbor's property.

A brief reminder of the law on noise pollution and noise level

According to Article R 1334-31 of the Public Health Code, "noise can be considered as a noise nuisance if it is repetitive, intensive and long".  So unless your air conditioner is silent, know that it emits noise disturbances likely to disturb the neighborhood.

The thermal comfort of the air conditioner

It is not recommended to install the reversible air conditioning at your height or above your bed, sofa or table, you risk that it constantly blows in your face. So think of a distance of 2m above the ground for an even distribution of air inside each room for ambient air.

For interior configuration:

  • Avoid fragile supports unable to support the weight of the device

  • Away the air conditioner from electrical appliances and all hot springs

 For the exterior configuration it is simpler think of:

  • A secluded location
  • Inaccessible by the way.
  • Fix it in a shaded corner away from the sun's rays.

Reversible air conditioning for thermal comfort in all seasons

The choice of air conditioning system is very important for comfort in living rooms and for energy saving. Reversible air conditioning is among the most popular. This device is not limited to softening the temperature inside your home when the one outside is high. Like a heat pump, this device provides a heating mode during the winter period.

Reversible air conditioning consists of an outdoor unit that has the function of recovering calories from the outside air and storing it in calorific liquid. Several elements ensure the pressure change namely the compressor, the evaporator, the expansion valve and the condenser. Hot air is then diffused into your living rooms through the indoor module of the reversible air conditioning.

In summer, the outdoor unit of the unit rejects warm air into your living rooms. The indoor module blows fresh air to soften the ambient temperature.

You have the choice between a monobloc, mono-split or multi-split reversible air conditioner. It depends on the number and dimensions of the rooms to be heated in your home.
