I THOUGHT I HAD FOUND THE SOLUTION. NO SUCH LUCK. ART. 210.63 REQUIRES AN OUTLET FOR HVAC UNITS. MILBANK MAKES A NEW UNIT THAT CLAIMS TO DO THIS, IT DOES BUT YOU STILL HALF TO RUN 2 CIRCUITS(240V FOR AC AND 120V FOR OUTLET). DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A COMBO AC NONFUSED DISCONNECT WITH A FUSED GFI OFF THE SAME CIRCUIT?
MJ: That sounds like a lot of work to "tap & fuse down" for the "hot" leg for 120 volt. If you are "pulling a neutral" why not just pull a hot with it?? #12 or #10 THHN is hell of a lot cheaper than a tap & in-line fuse. Also, more than likely, you may be violating the UL Label and/or listing for the disco. The lugs in most disco's are only listed/rated for 1 conductor, so how would you make the "tap". John

LET ME BE A LITTLE MORE CLEAR. I'M TALKING ABOUT HOOKING UP A NEW UNIT IN AN EXISTING HOUSE, WHERE CIRCUITS ARE HARD TO FIND SOMETIMES, PLUS GETTING AN EXTRA ROMEX THRU THE HOUSE ISN'T ALWAYS THAT EASY.

EVAD7: OK, got the drift of your situation. Yes, it's tough to get circuits through a lot of times.... That's part of the job. Please don't take my comments as being "smart AxxED", but the nature of the beast that we earn our living from is not always a "cake walk" We run into situations where you may have to go 500' to get a 120 circuit, with a 40' ceiling/roofdeck building..
I have not seen a disco like you described, have you searched the mfg websites? Called Cutler-Hammer area sales rep, or Square-D?
