To move or not to move hvac copper lines

While we are remodeling the bathroom, interior walls open to exterior, we are working on a wall that butts up to the condenser outside. The hvac lines are running on the outside of the home.

Questions: how involved to have tech move them? Should we? Is there any gain to place in wall?

Other then looks outside, no real gain. Could also get noise from line set after moving them inside.

Also any condinsation coming off of the lines will be stuck inside the wall.
