Mark P Posted November 2, 2008 Report Share Posted November 2, 2008 Folklore or Fact An a/c works more efficiently when placed in the shade. I have always heard this, but I have doubts that it is true. One web site stated placing the a/c in the shade will save 10% in electric bills. Next week IÃ¢â¬â¢m having a new heat pump installed. My current unit sits in a nice shady corner that gets almost no sun, but is directly in front of the cloths dryer vent. IÃ¢â¬â¢m considering moving the new unit (because of the dryer vent) to the east side of the house that will get full AM sun, but no dryer lint. Since it is a heat pump IÃ¢â¬â¢m thinking the sun will help it during the winter months. Are there any facts that support where or where not to locate an a/c / heat pump?
