comment How to wire an in-celing recessed projection screen
@Aman I don't make the codes, I just follow them. If the product is designed to be cord-and-plug connected, then that's how it should be used. If the manufacturer's instructions specify a hardwired option, then by all means follow the instructions.

A photo or sketch might be helpful.

If it's a single circuit, it shouldn't matter. There should be one hot and one neutral bringing power to the box, and everything else branches off of that.

Are there different circuits in the box, or is it all one circuit? In other words. If you turn off one breaker, does it kill power to the box, or do you have to turn off multiple breakers?

If there are multiple circuits, it would matter if the circuits were protected by GFCI or AFCI devices.

The connection, whether hardwired or cord-and-plug, must be "accessible".

comment Air handler condensation draining problem
@pdd Just read through the document you linked to, and I would agree that a properly designed trap should work. Just grabbing a trap you find at the local hardware store, may not. However, if you do something to modify the system, thereby changing the pressures, the trap may no longer function properly.

comment Air handler condensation draining problem
@pdd I understand. However, even with a trap, the water may not drain. It might go in the drain pipe, but probably won't go past the trap. So if the drain pipe isn't long enough to contain all the condensate, it will still overflow. If you have 1 unit of pressure pushing the water on one side of the trap, and 1 unit of pressure pushing on the other side of the water in the trap. The water just sits in the trap. If you lower the pressure on one side of the trap (the air handler side), the pressure on the other side will push the water preventing it from leaving the trap. Think of a straw.
