It is a brand new split system in the attic. In brand new construction. I want to run the line set inside the studs down to the condensing coil. As I said previously I've been away from doing this for sometime time and need to know which pitfalls to watch out for.

Also a refresher on the line set hook ups.

If you are going to run in wall, I would insulate both lines to prevent possibility of condensation issues. I would also attach a sheet of thin metal from stud to stud where they will run.This will prevent sheetrockers from hitting the copper lines.
