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 house???
Thanks for your help
No, because the heat pump is not moving air into the house. It only
moves the outside air through it's own coils. However, having a heat
pump in a vented closet doesn't sound like a good idea, as it's not
going to get good airflow as compared to being outside in free air.
If it doesn;t have free airflow, the efficiency will be decreased.
Also, venting a range into a vented closet isn't a good idea either
and is likely a code violation.
