I have a compressor motor for a new Geothermal Unit. I need to run a new electrical line.
16.7 RLA. 82 LRA.
If I go by the 16.7 RLA, with 20% "extra", I get 20.04 AMPS. That leads me to think 12 gauge wire based on internet searching.
I'm ok getting 10 gauge.
220 Volts. It's a crawl space in NC, and not in the attic or something (hot).
The run is about 23 feet.
The high number ("82") on the LRA has me a little worried.
Any confirmation? Or correction?
Thanks in advance.
