Mini-split compressor in crawl space?
Ok folks, another job, another question.
Changing from electric baseboard heating, to dual indoor unit minisplit, ~15-20k btu heating capacity. Pacific N.W. fairly mild climate, but can get quite cold (~10f) for many days a winter. We have little if any need for A/C, but it might be unused minimally.
This my question. This is a Condo unit with a very large joined crawl space, that has 6-8th of head room in most places (why they didn’t build a basement is beyond me!). This crawl space is minimally vented and the floor above the crawl is insulated. My thinking is...the crawl space is always much warmer than the OAT most days, but most especially when it is cold. It is also cooler in the summer. Both features make the basic efficiency curves are improved in both situations.
So, are there code issues with this? The volume of the crawl space is such that I don’t think I need to worry about it getting “too cold/winter” or “too warm/summer, given that the crawl space is vented.
Thanks again in advance,
