LG inverter low attic

Country of Origin: Korea, Dem. People's Rep of

hi i recently bought LG Inverter air conditioner and the guys that installed it put the indoor unit only 6 cm under the attic.
Will that make problems to the air conditioner and will it works as it should be?
They convince me that it will work just fine but i don't trust them )
thanks

These are usually designed for installation of the indoor unit quite close to the ceiling. The manufacturer's installation instructions would show the required clearance.

well the installation instructions said it should be at least 20 cm but the guys that installed it said it would be just enough. it is working but this is my first air conditioner and i don't know what to expect from it i don't know is it working with highest performance

I take it that you have a wall mount split unit... The Book says about 200mm but I have fitted them closer to the ceiling before now, the main issue is that the front cover opens properly so that you can remove it to clean the filters.... Your biggest issue it that it is an LG, LG stands for lots of things, none of them good.... One LG cassette that I fitted years ago was such a pain in the butt to me I eventually ripped it out of the building, replaced it with a Sanyo free of charge and with a big stick beat it to death on my driveway......One of my many Basil Fawlty moments

my question is if that's enough space for the air to goes in the unit in order to work with highest performance ?

What model is it? where are the air intakes? Generally if there is enough room to open the front panel then it will be fine..
