    Default Clearance for an air conditioner

    I'm wondering if there have been any carrier unit that allow under 24 inch clearance from top of unit. My thinking is no. I did a search but no luck on Carrier units.

    My rule of thumb is 4 feet min., unless otherwise specified by manuf.

    Depending on the model the clearances are different. The York units have 2 clearances depending on the model. The min. height clearance is 48" and the other units have a 60" clearance. I imagine that Carrier might have the same situation.

    Brian, that is the full web address.
    Copy and paste the entire string into you address bar and it takes you to the pertinent information. I just tried it and it works for me.

    STEP 3.
    Clearance Requirements

    When installing, allow sufficient space for airflow clearance,
    wiring, refrigerant piping, and service. Allow 30--in. clearance to
    service end of unit and 48 in. above unit. For proper airflow, a
    6--in. clearance on 1 side of unit and 12 in. on all remaining sides
    must be maintained. Maintain a distance of 24 in. between units.
    Position so water, snow, or ice from roof or eaves cannot fall
    directly on unit.

    To create a link simply type the following:
