Electrical Questions? Ask an Electrician Online.
ok, I am a little bit confused. I am not sure exactly the difference between line voltage wire and low voltage wire? Is the line voltage wire, the wire that would run from the electrical panel to the condenser? So, is the low voltage wires the wires ran from the condensor to each air handler?
The wires running to each air handler are a 3 wire.
Can a pvc conduit be used?
The wires that came with the unit are a 4x16AWG wire. The wire has a black jacket on it. The description online appears that it has a PVC coated jacket? Does this mean it is rated for outdoors?
I was gonna swap this out for an MC wire because it will be running above my suspended ceiling. Or can I just run this 4x16AWG bare in the suspended ceiling?
The unit I am installing is a multi zone, 3 headed mini ductless split air conditioner. I have all the heads mounted and the condensor in place, but I want to run the electrical lines from the air handler heads to the condenser and just up in the air of what I should do, If I can just run these bare 4x16AWG wires or swap it out for an MC wire?
If I swapped it out what gauge MC wire do I need?
