I am planning on installing an aquacal sq156r heat cool pump and an easy touch controller with the mobile screenlogic interface.
1) Will the pentair app for iPhone/ipad be able to switch the heat pump between heating and cooling modes?
2) Also, I am having an issue with how much airflow is needed for the heat pump.
As of now, my architect has the heat pump located underneath my AC units on the side of the house. So there is masonry block on three sides from pad to ceiling (8').
The fourth side is open (5' wide and 8' from pad to ceiling).
Is this enough airflow through a 5x8 opening? Should I tell my architect to build a half wall (4' high) on two sides with columns to support ceiling? Should we install louvers?
The issue is that the homeowners association requires all outdoor equipment to be concealed by a 4' high minimum masonry wall.
EDIT: The equipment pad is 5' wide by 16' long.
Also, should the heat pump be installed as close to the 5'x8' opening as possible?
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
