Still in the design phase for a new dry pipe fire sprinkler system retrofit into an existing attic space. Due to the existing arrangement of the building it may be significantly easier to route a portion of the system exposed to the outside.
My only concern with doing so, along with ensuring that the exterior of the exposed pipe is well protected, would be the potential difference in temperature between a cooler outside and a potentially much warmer attic.
Would condensation not build-up when the cooler outside cools the pipe as it enters the warmer attic?
I may be overthinking this, but how best could I address potential condensation concerns in a scenario like this?
