CARROLLTON, Ga. — Southwire has introduced its new EZ-In™ cable for the installation of mini-split air conditioning units, which the company says makes installing ductless a/c units quicker and easier, while ensuring jobs meet code.

Mini-split a/c units are growing in popularity, especially in multifamily housing and in homes where new additions are being constructed, said Southwire. Typically, contractors have had to run two different wires — one approved for outdoor use and one for indoor use — through a junction box and use conduit or a cable tray to power mini-split units. The new EZ-In cable is an all-purpose cable that meets code for both interior and exterior use, increasing the speed of installation and making sure the job will pass inspection.

“Southwire EZ-In mini-split cable makes installing ductless a/c units quicker, easier, and more efficient for HVAC contractors,” said Donna Graham, vice president, marketing, OEM Division at Southwire. “Southwire talks to its customers and brings products to market like the EZ-In mini-split cable that address jobsite issues HVAC contractors face on a daily basis. HVAC installation crews will no longer have to run two different wires or break the line set on mini-split a/c jobs.”
