I have always assumed there is supposed to be a disconnect within reach of the outdoor unit, as a safety issue. On this house I inspected yesterday, there isn’t one, it is hard-wired into the home, and the only breaker is the one inside the panel.
This is the first time I’ve come across this. Isn’t there a requirement for this to have a disconnect close-by? And as this buyer will be financing with FHA, would this be something the FHA inspector would call out? Thanks.
