And why on earth would the AC company install an electrical disconnect?
Its common for ac/furnace guys to do their own wiring on smaller projects.

In my career I never came across a residential A/C that did not have a disconnect moounted close by the condenser unit.
Come hang out on top of any of the apartment buildings in omaha,youll be shocked at what you find!
