So to get my head wrapped around this, you removed the rear vent and didn't have to do anything other than run the 12/2 w/gnd to the same breaker that runs the fireplace, then run a thermostat wire to the thermostat and finally cut the vent wall so that it ran into the existing ducting? That about sum it up?
Thats real close!
But i left the fireplace. I went to lowes hardware and got another HOMT breaker that has 2 20 amp breakers in one.
I took out a single 20 amp for the ac that was there and replaced it with a duel 20 amp and im feeding the new ac from there as well.
I also ran a cat 5 wire from the new ac to the front ac to get to the thermostat.
But that is all. The only other cutting was the vent 2x4 or whatever it was to get access to the duct work. I then taped it out to the ac hole as seen in the photo here.
