split system aircon

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

I am going to install split system aircon in my HT and was wondering if you thought it would be ok to install it behind the screen wall?

My screen has AT material and the surrounding panels will be covered in GOM.

I guess i'm wondering if the air will penetrate the GOM and screen and do you think I would be in danger of making the screen shake when the aircon kicked in?

Cheers,
Simon

I'd also be worried about turning your screen into a giant dust filter.

I thought about installing my minispit out of sight behind the screen, but figured that there would be significant loss of efficiency.

Thanks Cathan

A couple people have said similar sorts of things to me so I guess it means I need to either put in on the side wall, or in the back corner of the room.

Cheers,
Simon

When I first started my room, I remember a good general rule of thumb: registers in the front and returns near the rear. People prefer a breeze in the face as opposed to one on the neck.

I don't know if it's true, but I would not put a mini split behind the screen.

Mitsubishi makes a mini-split model where the inside portion is recessed up in the ceiling. Maybe something to investigate for this situation. I know it runs a little more but hey, you are closer to the source.

Placing the system behind the screen, your biggest worry would be condensation on the front side of the screen.

I think I saw the system you mean on the weekend. They call it a ceiling cassette. It would have been great but I have star ceiling in the way
