comment Does NEC require a separate circuit for a whole house fan?
What do the installation instructions for the fan say? I don't think NEC says a whole house fan must be on a dedicated circuit, but the manufacturer's documentation might.

Are the receptacles; or part of the receptacle, switch controlled? How were the receptacles originally wired, i.e. how were/are the wires attached to the original receptacle?

comment Why “extra” power disconnect for small HVAC unit?
@Mazura with A/C and refrigerating equipment, fuses are often used in addition to circuit breakers. When the installation instructions say "fused disconnect", they're likely referring to a device with a pull out handle with fuses in it. Something like this.
