within 25' of HVAC equipment. It's OK to use a standard receptacle up there and GFCI protect it from a bathroom.:jester:

I have viewed an electrical device similar to portable lighting on top of a roof and it looks like an extension cord is attached. I believe the device is powered from somewhere inside the residence. The device appears to be constantly connected. Is this allowed on a personal residence per code?

You are going to have to get a lot better description than that. Or a picture.

why is the lighting there?
temporary for construction type work?
night time partying/relaxing?
is this your roof? are you living in the same building? if not why do you care?

in my area, no one official cares if somebody does something questionable in or on their home, except for the insurance ppl
who will deny the claim if they find out about poor practices after the disaster, whatever it may be or whatever caused it

if you live in this building, either report to the landlord, or call a home inspector and start an official complaint

Thank you for the feedback. I have added photos of the device. Just was curious what this device is for.
