Electrical wiring covered by ductwork ok?
This may be more of a question for the electrical forum, but thought I would start here since I received some good help on another furnace issue. Attached are 2 pictures of the ductwork that I just had done in my house. The second attachment really should be viewed first. The contractor cut back the original ductwork by about 3 feet since he said it didn't meet code since it covered up electrical wiring. But, is this right now? I can see 3 wires going in (one on the left in the back, and two together on the right). But, I only see 2 coming out - one on each side in the front. Since there is an addition on the back side, I'm assuming the third wire goes out there.
It is the cold air return. I'm wondering if this would pass code, if I had my house inspected for sale.
