    HVAC is a great business to get into indeed. Bunch of crooks.
    2.5 k aint bad actually. Considering I had a quote for 13k. I was like yeah no thanks,GTFO out of my house.

    What size mr cool? I’m assuming 24,000 with the 20 amp breaker? Doing some research I think the larger unit requires a 30 amp?

      Keep in mind I'm not an electrician and I always recommend hiring one. My unit is a 24K and I used a 20A dual pole breaker. I also have a weather proof box with a fuse/disconnect just outside the unit for service. The outside unit which you will be wiring up to your power circuit will have a plate on it. This plate will specify the power draws of the system, minimum circuit ampacity, and max fuse size. You must adhere to these guidelines. In my case the unit was rated at around 13.6A @ 230V for the compressor and fan draw. The minimum circuit ampacity rating was 15A, which sets the smallest circuit you can safely run the unit on. For a 15A circuit it means a 15A breaker and 14 awg conductors. The maximum fuse rating of my unit was 25A, which sets the limit for the largest safe circuit you can use. In my case I went for 20A as it was convenient for me and used 12 awg wire. I would not recommend exceeding the max fuse rating as that could run the risk of damage to the unit, fire, etc... The breaker must always be the weak spot in the circuit.

    I took a “bad” capacitor in to work and tested it. It was fine.
