Exterior Distribution Panel

Recommended Posts

The main distribution panel is mounted below the electric meter directly behind the AC at the exterior. Clearance of only 1 foot to walk behind the AC. The home was built in the 1950's. The electric service was updated in the late 90's. What exactly are the clearance requirements for exterior mounted panel boxes?

The required clearance for workspace is the same whether it's indoors or outdoors. 30" wide by 36" deep and 6'-6" tall. It sounds as if the AC installer chose a poor location for the condensing unit.
