Distance from Compressor to air handler??

Hello all just a quick question about heat pumps and distances. I want to put my heat pump around the far side of my house and run the lines outside and then into the furnace room. My question is what is the max run for a 3ton heat pump. Most of them come with 15' lines but I have seen 30' and 50' lengths for sale. Is there anything wrong with this idea?

In the IOM, or Instalation Operation Manual, there should be a chart that cross references the distance and size the line set should be, and the maximun recomended distance. Sure you can put it wherever you want as long as you use the right size piping.
