How to cover AC refrigerant lines?

The copper coils and drip pvc pipe- ac lines- run from the ac unit in our attic down 2 stories to the condenser that sits outside the house. I do not like the looks of the lines…is there a typical thing a person can buy to slide over the lines which would “hide” these lines?

I’ve thought of something like a drain pipe (gutter) to enclose it or build a “chimney” with a series of doors covering the chimney with our house siding so it would blend in with the side of the house. But there must be something the trade does for aesthetic reasons.

Hi Priscilla,

There is a product called “line set cover”(search in Google for “AC line set covers”) designed specifically to hide AC refrigerant lines. Besides that I’ve seen people using a variety of different things to cover air conditioning lines: plastic or aluminum gutters (you have to slice along its side for existing installations), siding panels, aluminum sheets, PVC pipes.

Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with. Thanks.

outstanding! We ordered them online and having a professional install them on the side of our house. I know it will look so much better.

We’ve also extended the drip pipe as ants were using the short one to visit us (annoyingly so) in our kitchen! Much appreciate your expert answer.
