Subject: Hooking up ductless split


Name: Neil


Question: I need to put in a 220 20amp breaker. The wire is ran to the panel. I am putting in a quick pull disconnect. What I do not know is the disconnect is marked "line". What does that mean? And which wire goes in that one marked "line"

Thanks Neil

Answer: Hi Neil,

The term "line" in electrical devices refers to the source of power.The line side is the the wire bringing the power. The hot wires are on-line.

The term "load" refer to the down stream side of a device. If the disconnect is opened the load will power down because it is no longer attached to the line or power supply. It is off-line.
