Running Minisplit Line Set Through Basement: Logistics and Noise/Vibration Mitigation
One of my MRCOOL ductless mini split line sets runs straight through the basement and back out the other side of the house to the condenser. The run through the basement is approximately 60 feet, involving three 25′ line sets.
My thought is to place the line set into the rounded part of the lineguard (it would normally go on the outside) within 3″ plastic J hook pipe hangers attached along the ceiling of my basement and crawlspace. This would give the line set support while still allowing me access to the line set, right? Will there be vibration along the line? Is there something I could use (a rubber mat cut to fit the area below the line set?) to minimize this? Is this a good plan, or has someone done this in a better way? My wonderful local hardware guy suggested PVC drain pipe, but I want to be able to access the line set (and I already have plenty of leftover lineguard).
