Default moving the hvac ducting

hey everyone. i was really happy to find this forum. hopefully it will be a great help to my girlfriend and i throughout the next year, and we're looking forward to sharing all our lessons learned.

current setup: our condo has a split system with a heat pump outside and an air handler inside. the ducting and air handler are built into a drop ceiling in our unit and it's a real eyesore. the common practice is to move the unit and ducting into the attic space.

my question: could i rip out the old ducting and install new ducting in the attic space? i'm a pretty handy guy (engineer by trade), and we're both on a pretty tight budget. would an hvac specialist be able to replace our heat pump and air handler, then hook up to my duct work? am i biting off more than i can chew?

cheers!
-toby
