    Were there any piping instructions with the pump? Usually would be. Follow those and you are right......by those standards. AHJ has the final say, no matter how conflicting to those instructions.

    Is this a gas furnace with the standard 120 VAC motor or heat pump air handler typically being 208/240 VAC? (some older heat pumps had a single speed for both heat and cooling)
