How do you wire an AC condenser?
Simply so, what size wire do I need for AC?
It's going to completely depend on the unit that's being installed, but commonly it'll be 30-60 amp with 10-4 AWG wire. You're probably looking at a 3.5 ton unit, so you'll be in the 30-40A (10-8 AWG) range. It might be worth it to get a few quotes from local HVAC companies, and see what they want to install.
Similarly, it is asked, what wires go on AC capacitor?
HVAC Capacitor Wiring Color Codes & Connections - Basics Usually connects to C or Common terminal on the Capacitor. Power source. Usually connects to R or Run terminal on the Capacitor. Power from fan relay to fan motor will typically connect to the T2 terminal on the Contactor relay.
The C wire, or “common wire” enables the continuous flow of 24 VAC power to the thermostat. If your system doesn't have a C-wire, you'll need to run a new cable from your furnace to your thermostat to install most of the modern smart thermostat models. Thermostat wire is just a big spool of bundled, color-coded wires.
