Came across this in a maybe 700 square foot home. No breaker labeling on panel. I assume this is for the furnace. Very small wall furnace. Instead of using a double pole breaker, they used 2 single pole breakers. When i did a little research, I couldn’t find a for sure answer as to whether or not they needed to be replaced with a double pole breaker, or just identified tie?
Need to know type of breaker some you can buy a bridge to tie them together ,or is there a tie on the breakers

Shop square d load center handle tie in the breaker box accessories section of Lowes.com.
Showing that a handle tie is available does not mean it is the right part for the application . A two pole may be required .
OP, what is a wall furnace?
If the furnace is using a neutral along with the two phase conductors then a 2 pole CB is required. If it’s just a straight 240 volt load then you can use a handle tie.

A gas fired wall heater typically has a 120 volt single PH motor as from the factory, it is a fractional HP. If in fact it was a 240 volt motor which I doubt someone changed it out after the fact. Fractional HP 240 volt motors are typically used in commercial refrigeration.
Good to know, thank you.
