3.5. Installing the unit

• Please install the outdoor unit without slant. (within 0.3 degrees)
• Install 4 anchor bolts at the locations indicated with arrows in the figure.
• To reduce vibration, do not install the unit directly on the ground. Install it on a secure
base (such as concrete blocks).
• The foundation shall support the legs of the unit and have a width of 3 in (80 mm) or more.
• Depending on the installation conditions, the outdoor unit may spread its vibration during
20 (500)
operation, which may cause noise and vibration. Therefore, attach damping materials
or more
(such as damping pads) to the outdoor unit during installation.
• Install the foundation, making sure that there is enough space for installing the connec-

tion pipes.
or more
• Secure the unit to a solid block using foundation bolts. (Use 4 sets of commercially avail-

• Do not install directly on the ground, this may result in equipment failure.
• The drain water is discharged from the bottom of the equipment. Construct a drain ditch
around the base and discharge the drain water properly.
• Provide ample space for ice buildup from condensate between the bottom of the unit and
the flat surface on which it is mounted. Otherwise, there is risk that the drainage water
will freeze between the device and the surface, disabling drainage.

anticipated snow depth for the region.
The installation of snow hoods and drift prevention
fencing is recommended when blowing and drifting
