Installing ductless minisplit over refrigerator
Building an 800sf 2 story house, main floor is 400sf open floor plan. Would there be any problems if I were to install the ductless mini split head above the refrigerator?
I was thinking of mounting it on the front of the soffit so it would be flush or slightly proud of the front of the fridge, allowing it to spread air down without hitting the fridge. It would also be further from the coils on the back of the fridge. I read that it should be 7-10″ below the ceiling.
Additionally, not sure if it’s possible, but if I could somehow add some sort of screen to visually hide it, that would be even better. I’m concerned that would conflict with the efficient operation of the air exchanger, though you’d think a highly air permiable screen would be ok?
Finally, I may add a passive make-up-air vent for the stove hood behind the fridge, just to throw another variable in there.
