Can i use a 60 amp 240v Air Conditioner disconnect here?


I'm gonna install a ductless mini split and it runs on 115v with a 20amp circuit. I want to install an outdoor quick disconnect box for the fan but I don't really see anything at Home Depot except for the big 240v 60amp disconnect boxes

Yes, you can use it.
You only need to connect one side.

USE a toggle switch in a weatherproof box:

Second what kbspark suggested, you could also buy a air condition disconnect.

Maybe that is what you found, for 6.45 you can't go wrong. Probably cheaper then buying the cover kbsparky suggested and the box and switch to go with it.
