Answer: 
Wire size is always based on ampacity, or amperage draw/ current. Check the placard on the unit, consult NEC wire sizing chart, and choose the proper wire size/ gauge. Using a larger wire never hurts. The Circuit Breaker and/ or Fused Disconnect is to protect the wiring and equipment. Non-fused Disconnects are commonly used between the Panel and the Unit, but they do nothing more than kill the power to Read More

Perhaps you should consult a qualified electrician. Read Less

Answer: 
That will depend on the unit. The unit's data label will tell you the minimum circuit ampacity. Use this number, along with the National Electrical Code and your local codes to determine the wire size.

I want to run 8/2 UF gauge wire w• ground from my main breaker panel @ my house on a 30 amp single pole breaker to my storage building which is about 200 feet. Can I use this as a emergency quick disconnect since access to the MAIN BREAKER is so far.

Answer: 
Yes, you can. You may encounter voltage drop issues, depending on what you plant to use on the circuit. You also have to de-rate the wire if direct-buried. If you just plan to power a couple of fluorescent lights and a small fan, you will be fine.

Answer: 
Yes, this setup will work. However, as long as you're going to the expense and work of burying a cable, why not make the cable a 6/3 UF? This will give you greater future flexibility in electrical capabilities in your storage building and it sure beats having to replace the cable when your electrical needs in the building change, I know that if I install 120 volts, before too long I'll find myself Read More

Answer: 
No. This is a 240 Volt, single-phase disconnect. It is designed specifically for air conditioning units. I have been an a/c tech and now contractor for 20+ years, and I have yet to see one that requires a neutral and two hot conductors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GE 60 amp non fusible disconnect- outdoor. I replaced my outside disconnect with the unit. Very simple and safe design. For the price, I should buy a spare to put on the shelf. April 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Deal A great product at a great price. I just can't figure out why they sent 8 in one box, and 2 in another the next day. Seems to me it would have been cheaper to send them all in one box. May 4, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solidly built AC Disconnect I use AC Disconnects for my work. This is the only brand that is built solidly. Home Depot is the only store I have been able to find them at. Menards & Lowes only sell a very flimsy cheaper made product, that I have had to use in a pinch. The plastic on the cheap ones break. I strongly recommend this product! August 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The right Product at a great price Skill Level: Homeowner / Skilled in Electrical basics I bought this 60 amp 240 Volt Non fused AC Disconnect as a replacement for the Breaker style one that went bad on my unit. 15 min to remove old one and install this new one with basic hand tools. Quality product for the price I would recommend this for anyone needing such a device. June 13, 2015
