No longer need assistance: thank you

UPDATE: got the answer I needed. Which is no haha. I tried to delete.

I recently bought a heat pump unit from a foreclosed home. Itís a 3 ton heat pump unit, but I did not realize it was a 3 phase commercial system (440v). Does anyone know if itís possible to wire this unit up for single phase or for residential use? Iíve read a few articles that seem to say itís possible. Any information is helpful. Thank you.

You haven't even told us what unit you bought and you are asking if it can be rewired? Start with providing the manufacturer and model number and our pro's will take a look. I would not hold much hope though. Three phase is a totally different flavor of power and will likely require a expensive converter but at that point I'd be looking for a new unit built for 240 volt.

Hi, itís hard to believe that system was connected to a residential home, was it running when you picked it up or was it just being stored there?
