What type of wire to connect air conditioner to house?
The AC condensing unit needs two 24 volt low voltage control wires, the high voltage will be 220 - 230 volts and requires 3 wires , 2 hot legs and a ground. You can buy pre made whips as they are called cheaper than making one.

What is wrong if your Rheem air conditioner won't start and you took the w wire and connected it to the RC wire in the thermostat and the unit does a clicking sound but won't start?
Answer . Put the w wire back to where you got it.\n. \nNow take a volt meter and determine if you have power between R and the common terminal (usually a blue wire or the… C terminal). If you have 24V there is no problem with the tstat. You now must check the condensing unit(the one outside), and check for 24V. If you have voltage, check your breaker box or the outdoor disconnect box.\n. \nYou cannot leave the w wire on RC. What did you do with the RED wire that was on RC?
Answer . If you have to ask this question, you should not be doing this job.
When connecting 10 3 wire to a air conditioner disconnect should the white wire be caped or grounded?
Answer . The white wire is neutral. If you need 110V at whatever this is supplying you need to connect it to neutral (Not ground). If you only want 220V you can simply c…ap it with a wire nut at both ends and leave it unused. If you can connect it do neutral, do so. The next person will expect it to be neutral and it is better to have it tied to neutral than floating.. If in doubt, go to your local home improvement center and buy a book. It will teach you how to do it legally and will serve as a handy reference during the job.. Finally, I will add do it right or don't do it at all. If you are negligent you could easily kill someone through fire or electrocution. If you read and do your homework and learn what it required you may find that small electrical repairs can be quick and easy. If you can't understand what you need to do hire an electrician. The cost of a professional is not worth the time you will waste if you don't understand what you are doing and the danger therein.

If the air conditioner is on but not cooling the house properly,you may have a leak in your duct work. A leak would allow all ofthe cold air to escape, blowing into the outdoo…rs instead ofcooling your house.
If not found glued inside an access panel, one may be obtained from the manufacturer or possibly a service co.
I hate to say it this way, but very carefully. If done improperly, the airbag can deploy, causing very expensive damage. This is not an area of the vehicle to tinker with whil…e not having familiarity. Seek an experienced professional's help. The cost will be worth it. Additionally, air bags are deployed by a charge of gunpowder. If your body or face are in the way when the airbag accidentally deploys, it can KILL YOU. If this warning doesn't get the message across and you still wish to attempt the wiring yourself; then re-read to post. Disconnect the battery before doing any work on an airbag system. Wait five minutes after battery is disconnected before starting any work on an airbag system. Vehicle doors and windows should be closed with nobody inside the car; THEN and only then should the battery be reconnected. Sit as far back as possible when starting the car for the first time. If the airbag warning light is on or flashing, turn the car off immediately and have it towed to a professional shop to have the work done correctly; like you should have done in the first place.
For USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. 10-2 wiring is good for up to a 30 Amp 240 volt Air Conditioning (AC) unit. That answer assumes the A/…C is to be installed in a residential installation, because the service voltage is 240. The length of wire-run should also be factored-in when deciding the correct wire size. To get the right answers refer to the Wiring Codes or Regulations for your locality. (Town/State.) As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances, always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.
I would love to answer that question, however the question you pose is better left to someone trained in legal matters.
The three phase supply first has to be connected through a three phase safety disconnect switch. From the safety switch the three phase supply then connects to the terminal st…rip that is supplied in the air conditioner's control panel. The air conditioner unit is factory wired so that all that is needed in external connections if the power and thermostat control.

If you have a 4-wire receptacle it is likely 240 Volts and one would hope that you are connecting a 240 V AC unit. A typical 4-wire receptacle will have two hot terminals (Usu…ally red and black), a Common terminal (White) and a Ground Wire (Bare or green). If you have a 220 V AC then you need to connect to the two Hots to get 220 and connect ground to ground. If your AC was 120 V you just need one leg of 240 V so you would connect to Black, White and Ground.
If you're talking about window units you need to look at BTU's... Example: Split level ranch: Three bedrooms, living room/dining area, kitchen on the upper level. Den, rump…us room, laundry room on the lower level. Average sized rooms. Window units needed: 3-5 Same example but forced air through out the home: Have a reputable A/C tech local reputable company check your freon level, compressor or size of A/C unit. There are many factors to examine, overall square footage of the home, regional climate, home insulation issues, personal 'chill-out' preference. Stuff like that. I've worked in a blast freezer for years so any temp over 68-70 and I sweat, drives my wife crazy...
Usually the power provider will conned the wires to the transformer. If your house if fed over head, your service will attached to an insulated attachment point on the house …or service mast. Then they will pass through the meter, and then into the main breaker in your electrical panel. If your house is fed underground the service wire will be burred underground and enter the electrical meter from the bottom If you can elaborate a little more I can give you a more precise answer
When things are connected in parallel, they all get the same mainsvoltage. When you connect things in series the voltage they getdepends on the number of units in the series. …Household appliancesall need mains voltage so all electrics deliver this. (Apart fromconnecting up batteries, nearly all electrics are set up inparallel mode).
