Default Air Conditioner Location - by building code.

Hello,

My neighbors AC was supposed to be installed behind their house, because these are 30ft lots, and there is much space between homes.

They called us today to ask if we would object if they put their AC at the side of their house.
They have a 4 ft walkway, and we have 2 feet. Is there any code reg. AC installations at the side of the house?

If they take up their 4 feet with an AC, it will be quite tight. Another main concern is noise (since the baby nursery will be right above it. I think this is why the builder puts the AC units behind the homes, and not at the side.

Any help would me much appreciated!

Consult your municipal by-law office for the official answer.
