A/C Ducting solutions
I am still in my demo/planning stages, and plan to do a roof raise. Part of my consideration on how high I go is whether or not I need to add extra room for A/C ducting. I plan to do spray foam insulation along the roof, so I can run the ducts between that and the ceiling I will build.
I plan to take this vehicle all over the US, and I hate hot weather. Dry heat > humid heat, but 60 degrees >>>>>>>> anything 80 and above. I like it cool, especially at night, so A/C will be important for me. It's going to be a shore power only build, so no need to worry about power consumption, but I would like to minimize price of A/C units.
My plan currently is to buy a mini split, mount it high in the back, and run a duct (unsure of the size, since it'll greatly impact headspace and vehicle height) along one side of the roof, between the insulation and the ceiling. Run vents from that to the ceiling, and on the other side have vents (floor or ceiling, haven't decided). I also haven't decided if those will simply allow air to flow between the walls/ceiling and insulation, or if I will duct that as well.
Heating will be done via coolant heater and heated floors, because heated floors are the greatest thing for your feet since sliced bread. However, on very cold northern nights, I can run the mini split in reverse for extra heating.
With that in mind, tell me about your ducted A/C solutions! Pictures are greatly appreciated as always!
