    This was a new installation and the homeowner insisted on using his own electician. I refused to do the startup.

    Nice, it looks like the homeowner was the "electrician".

    I take it, that NEC does not pertain to your area.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I hate that all the way down to being to lazy to cut the whip to a decent length. We do everything ourselves except attatch in the breaker box. We put the wire next to the service panel and (only because by law we have to) we call an electrician to come and just put the breaker in and hook it up.

    Can you say weedwhacker, flashburns, and 911?

    Incredible. Might as well go all the way cheap and just run a 12 gauge bright orange extension cord out there and stab it into the breaker bus.

    I could see myself tripping over the wire causing the disconnect to pull off and getting shocked all in one clean sweep. Most likely to occur on a rainy friday at five pm.

    Amazing. I wonder what the rest of the house looks like (electrically and mechanically speaking)?

    To think the H/O would pay for a American Standard to be installed and get cheap on the electrical!
    I'd expect someone THIS cheap to have purchased a Goodman!

    Thumbs down ya baby

    Oh yah, that looks like a HomeDepot install. Don't worry, the varmits will get smoked on the turf-wire before you do. Drop a dime to the inspector before someone gets fried.
    We had $60K chiller go down at a critical building (National Security)because of an exposed comm wire. Seems some board prairy dogs liked the taste of comm wire. Unfortunately we're not allowed to shoot them, because of the tree huggers. You can't throw a rock in any direction without hitting one-I mean the doggies.
    Check your six

    I am sure you pulled a mechanical permit on this right? What did your inspector do about it?

    Your using the term "electrician" loosely, right?
