At the front (fan side) of unit, no less than 1m is recommended for a small split AC and 2m for a large package AC. More would be preferable. At the back (no fan) of unit, no less than 100mm is needed for a small split AC and 200mm for a large package AC. More would be preferable. N.B. All outdoor units not only need a minimum distance around them, but also must be located so that the hot air they blow out can escape away from the unit, and new cooler air can be taken through the unit. Careful consideration regarding location is required by an experienced installer.
In most buildings air conditioning accounts for up to 60% of energy use.

If there is a hot day forecast, then pre-cool your house the night before. This is especially effective if your house has a high thermal mass such as solid brick. This will allow your air conditioner to work at its optimum during the cool evening, saving power and wear and tear on the unit. It also allows the unit to keep on top of the heat load as it begins to warm up during the heat of the day.
An inverter is a type of power conversion circuit which provides optimum power control and extremely efficient operation by changing the frequency of the power supply. So even though you get speedy, flexible operation, you use less electricity than conventional units.
