furnace circuit amperage

what amp circuit should the furnace be on 20 or 30? I noticed the solenoid valve had 30 amp stamped on it.

The furnace running, blower and all should be under 10 amps. Probably closer to 7 actually

On my 75 TW the furnace is on a 20 amp circuit along with other items. I believe it is circuit #3.

I think with closer observation that the solenoid is 30 volt/amps not 30 amps. A 20 amp circuit should be fine.

Thanks all .
Anyone have a source for the Essex 1/2 psi 30amp gas solenoid valve #190-131185 which was in a NT-22A suburban furnace?
