We recently replaced the air handling unit in our home due to the coil leaking and I kept the old unit because the motor seemed to be fine.
I would like to use the large motor and housing to create a large air filtration unit for my wood shop.
I would like to know if it is possible given the photos attached to rewire this for 110 use. I have 200 A of service available at the panel in the shop, but no outlet or breaker. I realize it is not terribly difficult to wire up a 220 outlet, but would like to explore using 110 instead if I can avoid having to mess with the panel.
The motor indicates that it is a 1/2 HP so I doubt that the 220 requirement has much to do with the fan, but more rather then compressor unit outside (this is a heat pump system). The label also indicates a 3 way switch that I am guessing was controlled by the unit logic board where the thermo wires in, so I would also want to get some kind of switch to add to the motor.
Thanks in advance for you help. Great site!
