hello,im replacing a packaged ac unit with a rheem rsnja24jk000 packaged unit it comes with a 5kw or 10kw heat strip the old unit runs with a #10w 240v 30amp breaker without a heat strip,will that run the new unit with the heat strip in heat mode? 76db noise level is that good,bad or avg. thanks in advance.

You will have to read the data plate for what the max amp draw is. I would say though no it is not a big enough breaker. You can figure 20amps per 5kw, so depending what your compressor is rated at you may need a 60 amp breaker and pull #4 wire.
