Electrical Question from James about a Swapped A/C Circuit

Thanks for your electrical question James. No – I have never heard of this before, but can see that it is possible. My guess is that theses two condo units are positioned side by side and that the floor plan is basically mirrored or flipped. And very likely both of your electrical panels are installed in a common wall between the two units, really close to each other. If this is true then what may have happened is that the a/c cables were installed to the wrong panels. Yes,Â this can be fixed but one side of the wall will need to be opened up so the cables can be removed and re-routed correctly.Â I would contact the company who sold the unit to you and request they fix this. If they would like to located the original electrical contractor and take proceedings that up to them and the legal departments.
