minisplit line

Had a minisplit installed. The heat pump is resting on the ground, which is where I wanted it.

Asked installer if refridgerant and drain line could be run between the drywall and brick so as not to have the channel mounted vertically down the side of the house to where the heat pump is. He gave some generalized excuse 'that I don't want to do it that way', 'usually have problems'. I could not get an example or a reason why it couldn't be installed that way.

I looked in the supplied installation manual, and I did not see it discussed.

Why could or would it not be a acceptable method to run the refridgerant and drain line between the drywall and brick?

Thanks.

Re: minisplit line

I think this can be done in the way you want only if you consult someone who is professional in the field on installation of any heating system. May be the installer you have hired has not installed it correctly. Last month, my uncle has gone through the installation process of water heater by consulting the professional heating Bergen County NJ team and got all hisd work done within short period of time. If you need, you can consult the same team or else can opt to other comfortbale options too. Good luck.
