Why don't the A/C makers put an EXO integral with their units? I've wondered about this for a long time. Seems like buying a new car, and then having to buy the steering wheel seperately (you've got to have one)

Sparky,

"frosty's" ?? - what's a frosty?

'66,

Are those the feeds to the units coming out under the Meters? Is that pvc or Flex going down into the ground?

It is PVC conduit throughout.

I haven't stepped inside the place, I was just parked here eating my sandwich when I noticed these...

The HVAC guys do their own electrical work here.

Virgil,

You'd think that since the HVAC guys can do only a limited amount of work that they could get it right. I guess that's to be expected when there is so little inspection & so many grandfathered licenses.

I'm sure they used schedule 80 pvc (300-5(d)) so the weed wackers & lawn mowers won't cause any damage. [Linked Image]
