    Insulating suction line from Condensing unit

    While trimming grass around condensing unit, I destroyed some insulation on suction line and exposed it. Manual ask to insulate suction line. Is it a DIY work or need a professional? I just want to re-insulate to avoid any condensation on suction line.

    I dont see any harm in the home owner putting some insulation on the line, nothing really tricky about it.

    I agree, it's just a cosmetic issue, with not much potential for screwing something up, or personal injury.
    The potential energy savings from having a couple of feet of the vapor line between the unit and wall insulated vs. not insulated would take 2-4 years just to make up the cost of a stick of closed cell pipe insulation from a hardware store.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
