Clearance needed for visual screen
We just had Bryant A/C installed it's the slim model with the horizontal fan. Unfortunately the only plane to locate it is very close to our front door where it's an eyesore. I plan to make a panel from a section of reed ("bamboo") fencing framed. I would leave space at the bottom and sides to enhance airflow (and the reeds are not dense so air can flow through). However i want to make sure the 12" of space between the unit and the screen would be OK...The owner's manual says 12" for "tall grass or shrubs" but doesn't mention fencing.
