The Design

The indoor mini split HVAC unit was hung high and out of the way to provide the best function and aesthetics. A car port on the exterior wall prevented the Benchmark team from passing refrigerant lines outside in a line set cover. Instead, the lines were run down the interior wall, inside a line set cover, passed through the wall close to the ground and directly into the back of the outdoor unit. The outdoor unit was placed on a heavy duty concrete pad underneath the car port.
