A lineset cover is essential for residential homes or commercial buildings with a ductless HVAC system. The reasons are for maintenance and to assist in saving energy.

What is a Lineset Cover?

 A lineset cover is often made of PVC and conceals thin pipes or lines, protecting them from UV rays or weather damage. They also prevent animals from nesting within the system or chewing the tubes. They are important to prevent the investment of your HVAC system.


Exposed linesets are subject to damage from the outdoors as seen above.

How Does a Lineset Cover Help?

1. Extreme weather conditions such as heat, cold, wind, and rain can damage linesets over time. Lineset covers are extremely important for protecting HVAC systems from outdoor elements such as rain or animals. Rain causes corrosion or rust on AC tubing, and animals such as squirrels can chew the pipes. Rats or mice also can nest inside your air conditioning system and cause pollution with their droppings; all of which results in system failure.

2. Insulating tubing also reduces heat loss, which is how lineset covers save energy. Without lineset covers, pipes are exposed to outdoor elements. This could lead to damage, which affects the energy efficiency of your system. Therefore, lineset covers extend the life of your HVAC system.

3. Lineset covers or line hides are often overlooked due to their aesthetic value. They add to the design of a home, creating a more professional look that hides the inside tubing of an HVAC system.
