    By NEC Code, where should electrical disconnect for exterior heat pump be located?

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Bobby,
      NEC Article 440.14 states that the disconnect for HVAC equipment must be located within sight and be readily accessible at the equipment. The disconnect may not be mounted on access panels, and may not be mounted directly behind the unit.
