I have a heatpump outside my condo in a ventilated louvered closet off
of my balcony.
The blower unit is in a closet inside my condo.
If I vent a kitchen range hood exhaust fan to the vented closet will
the exhausted kitchen air somehow end up in the a/c air in my
Thanks for your help
Unfortunately you're getting the idiot's response.
If it's a split system then you won't get outside air fumes brought
in from the condenser. However you should never vent a dryer or range
vent within about 6' of a heat pump due to contamination of the
condenser or abnormal air flow.
Now if it's a packaged vs. split system you could be getting some
fumes. If in doubt have a pro look at it.
No, a heat pump compressor shouldn't introduce air.
However, air from a clothes dryer or range hood shouldn't be any
where near an AC unit. The lint, or grease (respectively) will
clog the fins on the AC unit.
Who would put a heat pump in a closet? Doesn't seem like it would
have enough air flow to be useful.
