I figured if Jay don't mind me step in here as well due I am well versed with electrical system.,

Ok when you add the electric heat strip in there how big this unit and did that unit have addtional breakers for electric heat and did the cable or conductor is sized to handle addtional load ??

This part is crictal to prevent any damage to your unit.

As far for your thermosat cable you should have either 7 or 8 conductor thermosat cable due the number of connection you will need for aux heat.

Merci.
Marc
