Breaker as service switch.

Inspected a condo today, and the furnace was within arms reach of the electrical panel. The furnace had no service switch or disconnect except the breaker in the panel. Is this proper?


No issue with me!

The breaker is the disconnect. If within (I think) 50 feet (line of sight) it is good to go.

Yes. National code states if the electrical panel is within 10 feet of the equipment and in plain sight. That panel can serve as a disconnect. Hvac licensed contractor 25 years in the business. Hope this helps.

As Jeffrey stated the NEC considers the disconnecting means to be “within sight” if it’s within 50’.
