Wiring my new furnace.

I recently had a new heating system installed. Ran out of money after wife got sick and can no longer work. So I am at the point of doing the power to the furnace myself. Not afraid to do it, have run the wire to it already. but the furnace says one thing for the power requirement and the instructions that came with it say something different. Cannot get any assistance from the manufacture since I am not a licensed installer. any one here willing to give me some advice?. The furnace heat grid came with 2 60 amp 220V breakers. the installation instructions show a 60 amp and a 30 amp circuits.
I have attached photos of the models of what I have & instructions that came with it including schematics.
Thank you in advance

Did you pull 2 circuits to the furnace?

Yes, I pulled 2 circuits and 1 neutral. what I don't get is the manual for the heat grid wiring schematics show a 30 amp and a 60 amp circuit. the heat grid circuit breakers are both 60 amp. so this is where the confusion comes in.

Sorry about the home issues.

We'll help you out.

The breaker sizing is dependent on the Kw rating of the coils. Can you post the make/model number of the heat kit ? It may be in the pictures but there isn't enough detail to see it.
