    Default Clearance to compressor

    Does anyone have info on clearance of a direct vent termination to an exterior compressor?
    Any info and/or paperwork is appreciated.

    Goodman replied to my e-mail-

    Dear Darren Miller,

    Thank you for contacting Goodman/Amana's Consumer Affairs Division.

    The technical support department has advised that there isn't a direct specification regarding distance but they do recommend at least a 3 foot distance.

    If you desire additional assistance, please contact our toll free line at: 1-877-254-4729 and speak to any of our Consumer Affairs agents.

    Thank you,

    I wonder how anyone including the installer would know that Goodman recommends 36" clearance if it is not written anywhere?

    Goofy.

    the 36" recommendation is for maintenance access and air movement.

    36" is the rule of thumb in the HVAC field.
