Due to space limitations in an apartment the internal unit of a proposed ALTHERMA 16KW High Temperature heat pump cannot be placed inside. The proposed installation is in Athens-Greece, where weather is generally mild and freezing conditions maybe once or twice a year.

Alternatively, the external unit can be placed outside in a relatively protected from harsh weather elements place like an external balcony covered from above, and within an insulated enclosure that can be constructed for this purpose.

Do you think this is a workable idea?

Thanks,

Providing the unit is protected from water ingress, I don't see a problem.
