Any recommendations on how high the FCU should be? My current FCU is just below the cornices...

In my opinion, 8ft from the floor is the preferred height. Too height would mean that you are cooling hot air (near the ceiling) that is not needed to help to comfort you.

Cooling unhelpful volume of air is not cost effective.

However, if you have a long room and high capacity FCU, than it make sense to have it higher as you need the air to reach the furthest end of the room. Such selection of a single high capacity for a large room would not be as cost effective as having 2 lower capacity FCUs appropriately placed (8ft from the floor) in the large room to provide immediate cooling to the desired areas.

Hope that the above are helpful.
