Can I run Lineset in PVC?


Ok so I'm getting ready to finish my basement. My AC is current R22. I suspect It'll have to be replaced at some point. I'm thinking about running a empty pvc line to allow for a future new lineset without having to tear up drywall. I need to go up and then left (2 90's). However I only have room for a 2" pvc. Will the lineset take these two bends? I'm also wondering if I should even bother with this. From what I've been reading it's possible to reuse a lineset but most don't seem to recommend it.

Won't be able to run a new line set through it.

Unless your current line set leaks down the road, or is too small for a new R410A system, no reason not to reuse it.

if your line set is the size you will need for your new system later....you can use a flush kit to reuse it with 410 a system.. you won't be able to insert a new line set through 2" with 90s in it.....ben sr
