Re: 210.63 - AC Receptacles
George in my opinion an indoor outlet can not be used as the outlet for servicing an outdoor unit. IMO a receptacle inside the building is not at the same level as the equipment outside the building. I have never seen a building that was not at least a step or two above grade.

Also take a look at "Accessible"
Accessible (as applied to equipment). Admitting close approach; not guarded by locked doors, elevation, or other effective means.
IMO if you expect me to through a cord through a window to service an outdoor unit you have a violation of 210.63

Most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
