Getting ready to order a Daikin ceiling mounted mini split and have some questions on its location to make sure I am going to be able to get even temperatures throughout the house.I am using the ceiling unit because my wife hates the look of the wall units and am going Daikin due to having a family member being able to get me the unit at cost.
I am picking the 1.5 ton unit to heat the section of the house attached in the layout PDF up until the blue line. The house was originally a ranch with a detached two car garage that the owners connected in a giant sun-room with all windows so for now I am focused on the main portion of the house. Though the rooms aren’t to scale, the overall measurements are correct.
1. Do you think placing the unit right before the hallway is a good spot for it? (red circle) and green circles are doors which will remain open.
2. I would like to put the outside compressor in my screened porch against the house (orange circle) to protect it from snow and the elements. The porch is 8′ tall and is screen everywhere from 2′ to the roof.
Thank You All.
I am in Ocean County NJ, zone 4A and picked the 1.5 ton because it is barely able to cover my needs right now as I am still in the early stages of energy retrofitting and when I am done I figure it can help with the sun-room as my wife eventually wants to remove the dividing wall.
