Heat pump water heater and pantry with long duct run
I’m building a home that’s roughly 60’x25’. I have my heat pump water heater located on the second floor and my 4’x2’ kitchen pantry on the opposite side of the main floor. I’d like to run a long insulated duct channeling the heat pump’s cold exhaust air to the pantry. It would be a straight shot 60’ run. Over the 60’, I can slope the duct down by a foot.
I realize that the temp will not be consistent, but even if it cools the room at all, it can only help. The pantry will have dry herbs for the most part.
Is there any chance that this would work?
