Advice on the Sizing of this Mitsubishi Heat Pump
I am installing Mitsubishi HVAC SYSTEM in new 4000 sqft house – 2 story and finished basement. We plan to use 2 x 36k outdoor unit.
does rain effect the out door unit performance? should I cover the top of the unit?
Can you please review below information and suggest if this system is properly sized and energy efficient? I am open to other ideas also.
Location: Secaucus, NJ
Building: single family, 2 story with open concept finished basement
Foundation: ICF basement foundation with R-26 in wall and R15 In the Slab
Framing: 2×6 stud wall with ZIP-R6 sheathing + R-23 rockwool insulation
Attic: vented, 2nd floor ceiling insulation-R38
we are planning to install air handler in the attic and then insulate around it to keep it in conditioned space.
Windows- double pan fiberglass, Windows U-factor is 0.31 and .29 SHGC
Should I install ERV or HRV for this location? installed standalone or integrate into air handlers?
