So i just got a 1.5TR split AC (LG LS-H18VNXD) and i have two options.
Install the otudoor unit (ODU) just behind the indoor unit (IDU) on the outer wall, so piping distance would be minimum possible, But the ODU faces the sun directly. OR Install the ODU 12 feet away from IDU (pipe will have two 45 degree curves), but ODU will be cool and shady place.
Which one will be more efficient and by how much ? Please advice.
Optional questions: If the answer is shade one, do i need additional gas recharge (the ac comes with 1kg r32 prefilled). Also I am planning to make a air filter for the ODU as it comes with naked fins and there are lot of bugs around, will it be fine ?
Don't know the installation guy will be honest so asking it here. Thanks :)
