Hiding a ductless head
Here’s my idea to hide a minisplit head, please critique and tell me why this won’t work. Keep in mind that the ducted install was a lot more expensive and the floor units are large and just don’t look good imho.
1. Mount mitsubishi head 18 inches from floor. I realize this goes against the manual. Will only be used for heating. See https://www.buildinggreen.com/blog/7-tips-get-more-mini-split-heat-pumps-colder-climates
2. Inset unit into wall as far as allowed.
3. Build buffet table to go over unit, route grill into the buffet top for airflow. EDIT: I meant console table with no face or bottom to block airflow. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Convenience-Concepts-Northfield-Console-Espresso/dp/B002YD8E36/ref=mp_s_a_1_12?keywords=console+table&qid=1583516177&sr=8-12
4. Make sure no one ever places papers on buffet table…
crazy? Hvac contractor was concerned about the air bouncing off the floor and short circuiting the airflow. Sounds ideal though for hiding it, I don’t think anyone would ever notice it.
