Heat Pump Extended Distance from House


I am replacing a Gas Pack with a Dual Fuel Heat Pump. I live in Tennessee so the temperatures are generally moderate. The location of the current pad is right next to the house, between my deck and elevated back door. I would love to extend the deck across the back of my house to also serve as the elevated back porch. However, the current pad location prevents me from doing so, and HOA rules prevent me from moving the unit to another side of the house.

If I pour a new pad about 10 feet out from the house, I could place the new unit so that a duct runs under the newly extended deck.

Is this something I would come to regret, later?

I have seen outdoor ducting, like Thermaduct, and weatherproof insulation products that are more oriented toward commercial applications. Will those be applicable or too cost-prohibitive in a small residential application?

As an alternative, I could have the carpenter who builds the deck extension build an insulated enclosure...

The temperature in the house is fine, but the indoor fan runs all the time. What's wrong?

Sometimes homeowners turn the fan switch to "On" versus "Auto" which causes the indoor fan to run continuously. Turn the switch to "Auto" and the fan should stop running continuously.

Is there any advantage to setting my thermostat fan to "On" so the fan runs constantly?

Yes, there are a couple. The first is that you get constant filtering of the air in your home. The second is that because the air is moving, you have a more even temperature throughout the home. However, continuous fan mode during the cooling season may not be appropriate in humid climates. If the inside of your home feels uncomfortably humid, it is recommended that the fan be used in "Auto" mode.

Why is a matched system important?

A matched system is important for a variety of reasons. One is comfort. When all our components are properly sized to your...
