Some installers believe that placing these systems in a garage or attic space may make the system more efficient by decreasing the difference in temperature. But it’s precisely because of these disparate temperatures that you should place your heat pump and air conditioner condenser outside.
Ventilating your attic is key to reducing moisture and avoiding mold. Attic ventilation is a critical factor to ensure that moisture and hot summer air issues are addressed correctly. This will help to preserve the structural integrity of your roof system, reduce energy costs in the warm summer months, improve the effectiveness of your insulation in the winter months and prevent the formation of ice dams.
