at this point im not sure any of us can be much help......



to answer your question....yes....the ac unit would run off of 220

HOWEVER the problem you would have it by some small chance the ac unit and compressor should kick on at exactly the same time....then you would have a small problem.

I'm pretty sure I could mitigate that with a little planning... we only run the AC maybe 2 Weeks a year and that days I'd be very unlikely to be working in the garage... I guess I'll call my electrical guy tomorrow...

Thanks for everyones help!

That shouldn't be too bad. I'd do it for you for a 12 pack if you weren't 4+ Hrs. away. It's really not hard at all, you can get a How To type book from Home Depot or Lowes or the library and be able to handle that small of a job.

x2 on the easy part, if you have empty spot in the panel then it's really easy. Run a 10ga 3wire into the panel hook the white and black wires to the 2 posts on the breaker then hook up the ground wire to the grounding bar. On the other end of the wire use whatever plug that is rated for the compressor, or in most case it will wire directly into the compressor motor.
