Standards for Air Conditioner Installment


In June, 2000, the Murieta Board of Directors approved a set of minimal standards for installing air conditioners in individual condo units. The installation of air conditioners is not required and is strictly done on a voluntary basis; however, if installed, they need to abide by these standards. The Murieta HOA is not in any way involved with installations.

Here are the minimum standards:

Maximum noise level - 72 decibels

Rotary Compressor - not piston driven

Efficiency rating (SEER) - 13+

External Patio Compressor/heat exchanger unit mounted on anti-vibration pad

City of Newark building permit - including electrical and mechanical

Comply with ALL codes as per City of Newark

Inspection approval by City of Newark Building Department
