Mini Split Head Unit Clearance
I am looking to spec a mini split for an open kitchen and dining room. The ideal location for the head unit is on a soffit located above a bay window. The soffit is 12 – 1/4″ H. Fujitsu model ASU9RLS3Y is 11 5/8″ H. However, the specs call for an additional 2″ of clearance on the top. Is this 2″ necessary for installation or operation of the unit? I checked with Fujitsu and they replied back and said it was 3″ of clearance but didn’t offer any solutions. I could potentially switch to another wall location but this one offered the most coverage.
