Package unit with heat pack wiring question

The unit appears to be set up for dual circuits with the use the heat pack. Two punchouts are missing with the lower accepting the circuit for the heat pack.

Can this unit be run from my existing single 60A circuit? If so, I'm having trouble determining exactly what I need to buy. If not, what Amp rating would I need for each? Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff

Model:
Goodman GPC1342H41C* with HKR-10 heat pack

Some parts that I'm confused about to convert to a single circuit:

single point accessory kit:
SPK-40
Heat pack with circuit breaker:
HKR-10C
Single Point Wiring Kit:
SPW-01

Welcome to the forums.

HKR-10*..... 49A min ckt. ampacity on 50A breaker. Heating coils only. Blower on second circuit.
Heating coils and blower (single point) 52A min ckt. ampacity on 60A breaker.

So your 60A circuit is ok if you only have one total circuit supplying the air handler.

Not sure what kits you need to order.

I was scratching my head on this. Why would there be two circuits when it could have been done with one? Maybe the circuits were preexisting.

Thanks for your time and reply. I will give Goodman a call on those parts.

Sometimes there is an air conditioning system installed and in that case only a small circuit would be required for the blower and control board.

Then at a later date the heat is installed. Hence the need for a second circuit.

Any electric heater kit over 10K requires two circuits.
