Air-Source Heat Pump Aesthetic Drawbacks
I’m planning on getting a whole house air source heat pump solution for my 1500 sf 1934 cape in the Greater Boston area. It will become my main heat source after tossing my horribly inefficient NG steam heat system.
My question is about the aesthetics of the outdoor line sets. They’re ugly!
I wouldn’t mind a single line set in the back of the house. However, my ASHP design calls for four indoor units to cover a total of six rooms in the house: two ceiling units in the bedrooms on the second floor, one unit in the kitchen (near the back of the house) and one unit in the livingroom (front and side of the house).
Does this configuration require as many as four ugly line sets running down the sides of the house?
Thanks in advance, Kris
