Air handler hookup

I am going to run new circuits and wire for my new air handler with built in 14kw heat. I don't know exactly what size/how many circuits to run. I have included an attached image of the tag.

The information is right there.

You can use a single circuit, or two separate circuits.
A single circuit would require overcurrent protection of 80 amps. Wired with #3cu minimum if using NM cable.
If you run two circuits one would need 40 amps protection, the other 45.

14Kw is A LOT of electric heat!

I will STRONGLY suggest having this done by a professional!


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
