I have some walls open and access to my electrical panel, i am thinking of running a line to the other side of the house for a ac ductless unit. Any suggestions of what gauge wire to run? And what size circuit break should i get? I don't know what unit im going to get but will be a split unit with appox 24000btu's.
Thanks in advance

probably requires 20a ckt, but run 10 ga if you don't know what you're installing (to the exter unit). (you still need to wire from the outside unit to the inside one)

I've done a couple units. The smaller ones are usually a 2pole 20 but some of the bigger ones I've done needed a 2pole 30. Do some research or pipe it straight to the panel.

Something to think about while the walls are open.
Maybe find some 60 amp rated 4 wire and install a nice equipment load center on that side of the house for future use.

I like that idea because it will help with a receptacle in the vicinity.
