A mini split is a great HVAC system to install that can also be made to look better and fit into the surrounding area.
One way to make a unit look better is to install a line set cover which will be located on the outside wall.
What is a Mini Split Line Set Cover?
A mini split line set cover protects and hides the refrigerant line and electrical wires on the outside wall after a mini split installation.
After a mini split is installed, the line-set is often left hanging down the outside wall.
While it can be taped up and any holes plugged with caulking, a line-set cover makes the job look professional and protects the line-set from damage.
They are low-cost items that can be a real benefit to any installation.
I always install a cover kit after a job, as will any HVAC company that does an install.
Many HVAC companies will have an in-house metal fabricator that will build a general metal cover.
These covers, while very functional, often are ugly things that can be replaced.
Every job will be different, with the mini-split locations a big factor.
For example, a unit in the backyard out of sight may not be a big deal with how it looks.
A unit in the front yard may matter more for a nice cover for better cosmetics.
There are many units, available with those below some of our favorite units.
Be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a kit is a good fit for you.

After a mini split unit is installed, covering the line-set is needed to help protect it from the weather or any damage.
Covering it also makes it look nice without a bunch of wires and lines hanging down a wall.
If you just need functionality and don’t care about the look, most HVAC companies can sell a fabricated metal cover.
HVAC install companies need to fabricate all types of metal for a home duct-work and will most often simply bend some metal for a quick cover.
If you are looking for a better style, there are several nice covers available.
A good cover kit will also make a job look professional as well as curb appeal.

How did you bend the line sets at the bottom of the cover?
They are usually bent slowly by hand but there is also line set bending tools.
We are looking for line set coverkits in commercial brown. Are any of these premade in a color so they do not have to be painted onsite?
They usually are white and need to painted if the color needed is different.
So you CAN just kink the line set at a right angle? I’m afraid to bend it where it comes out of the house.
A line set can be slowly bent into place. Most installers will bend them slowly by hand, but a bending tool can also be bought.
