Shipping Inspection

Always keep the unit upright; laying the unit on its side or top
may cause equipment damage. Shipping damage and
subsequent investigation is the responsibility of the carrier. Verify
the model number, specifications, electrical characteristics and
accessories are correct prior to installation. The distributor or
manufacturer will not accept claims from dealers for
transportation damage or installation of incorrectly shipped units.

Codes and Regulations

This product is designed and manufactured to comply with
national codes. Installation in accordance with such codes and/
or prevailing local codes/regulations is the responsibility of the
installer. The manufacturer assumes no responsibility for
equipment installed in violation of any codes or regulations.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has
issued various regulations regarding the introduction and
disposal of refrigerants. Failure to follow these regulations may
harm the environment and can lead to the imposition of
substantial fines. Should you have any questions please contact
the local office of the EPA.
If replacing a condensing unit or air handler, the system must be
manufacturer-approved and Air Conditioning, Heating and
Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) matched.
NOTE: Installation of unmatched systems is not allowed.
Operating the unit in a structure that is not complete (either as
part of new construction or renovation) will void the warranty.

Installation Clearances

Special consideration must be given to the location of the heat
pump(s) in regard to structures, obstructions, other units and any/
all other factors that may interfere with air circulation. Where
possible, the top of the unit should be completely unobstructed;
however, if vertical conditions require placement beneath an
obstruction, there should be a minimum of 60" (152 cm) between
the top of the unit and the obstruction(s). The specified dimensions
meet requirements for air circulation only. Consult all appropriate
regulatory codes prior to determining final clearances.
Another important consideration in selecting a location for the
unit(s) is the angle to obstructions. Either side adjacent the valves
can be placed toward the structure provided the side away from
the structure maintains minimum service clearance.
NOTE: Corner installations are strongly discouraged.

This unit can be located at the ground floor level or on flat roofs.
At ground floor level, the unit must be on a solid, level foundation
that will not shift or settle. To reduce the possibility of sound
transmission, the foundation slab should not be in contact with or
be an integral part of the building foundation. Ensure the
foundation is sufficient to support the unit. A concrete slab raised
above ground level provides a suitable base.
