Answer: 
The ampacity of 14 gauge wire is 20 amps as a starting point, but the NEC requires that 14 gauge never be used in a branch circuit with an overcurrent device (breaker or fuse) allowing more than 15 amps. Also, the wire must be de-rated if there are more than 3 simultaneously current carrying conductors. An additional derating is required if the ambient temperature is greater than standard. Derating may Read More
The ampacity of 14 gauge wire is 20 amps as a starting point, but the NEC requires that 14 gauge never be used in a branch circuit with an overcurrent device (breaker or fuse) allowing more than 15 amps. Also, the wire must be de-rated if there are more than 3 simultaneously current carrying conductors. An additional derating is required if the ambient temperature is greater than standard. Derating may also be needed for a wet environment and if multiple cables are run closely together in certain cases. Note that if only 3 of the 4 wires can be energized at one time, no derating is needed for over 3 conductors, but the other factors may apply. With only the over-3 conductor de-rating applying, the ampacity will still be over 15 amps. If any of the other deratings apply, the allowed current may fall below 15 amps. These rules are all spelled out in the NEC and there are tables for calculating the effects of these factors, but the rules are complex and will require significant study. It may be easier to consult with a pro. (The AHJ will likely have a limited willingness to help design a compliant implementation.) Read Less

Answer: 
You will need to consult the manufacturer of the mini-split system as well as your local AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction). Normally, the ampacity of a 14 AWG conductor in a Type MC Cable with 3 or less current carrying conductors is 20 Amps. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at Read More
You will need to consult the manufacturer of the mini-split system as well as your local AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction). Normally, the ampacity of a 14 AWG conductor in a Type MC Cable with 3 or less current carrying conductors is 20 Amps. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed. Read Less

Answer: 
Southwire's response notwithstanding, 14-4 ALWAYS means four current carrying conductors. What Southwire described in their response to this question would be 14-3 cable. I cannot account for this disconnect; maybe they are wrong, or maybe the product description is wrong.
MC cable is always required to supply a ground conductor, but there are multiple ways allowed to do this. The most common way is Read More
