Question about Heating & Cooling
First, which hole is the return and which is the supply. One is 14x14 and the other is 14 x 22.
Second what size breaker and wire do I need to wire it up and does the heat strips need seperate power. what size wire and what size breaker do they need?
Air unit GPC1330H21
Heat strips HKR 10CB
SOURCE: Need to how the power
Minim 20 amp circuit ... is this 110 or 220? You need to know.
20 amp circuit needs to have #12 wire. If 110 Volts, you need a black, white and green #12. If 220 Volts you need a black, a red, and a green. If you have anything IN the unit that needs 110 (probably not), you need black, Red, White and Green (bare) #12 wire. Definitely needs to be on a dedicated circuit. If your unit has a resistance heater (electric) you will need a 30 amp circuit (probably 220) which needs #10 wire minimum. 220 volt breakers are double. You will need two spaces in your panel box. Would not hurt to put in heavier wire (#8) protected by a 30 amp breaker ... $ is the governing factor.
Having said all of that --- you should be reminded that I dont even know what country you are in nor your prevailing voltage nor what your national or local codes require. My comments based on installing several Goodman products over several years on the Eastern Seaboard.

DO YOU MEAN FEED IN OR FEEDING HEATING ELEMENT . I ASSUME YOU MEAN TO FEED FROM PANEL THE ANSWER IS YOU MUST RUN 2 CIRCUITS OF 3-cond #6 copper to unit connect the feeds to one breaker and the other circuit to the other breaker the neutrals connect to lug provided or purchase them and frame gnd to case , i would not recommend anything except copper as most mfg do not rec aluminum because on the heating and cooling of the unit and conductors

Depending on the size of your Electric heat you can use one set of wires because your unit does not run with the heat like the heat pump. The large set of wires going to the electric heat should be used. You may have to jumper a new set to the contactor. On Goodman unit come in L1 and L2 jumper to contactor. Very simple good luck. Rus

Sounds like the heat pump is not running. Check outside to see if the fan is spinning.
Try moving the thermostat to emergency heat and see if that gives you any heat. If it does, then you have heat until you can get a service technician to locate the problem with the heat pump. It could be a wide range if issues from bad thermostat to bad wiring to bad capacitor.
