Customer Questions & Answers

Is this the same as 2 15 amps

Asked by: AlanB
No, it is two 30 amp breakers so that it supports 240 volt. Previous answer is a bit scary...NEVER replace a breaker with a higher amp breaker. True, it "won't pop" as readily but it will allow the wires on the circuit to overheat potentially causing a fire. And, if you don't already know this, you have no business mucking about in your load center.

I am adding a new circuit breaker for two 2000 watt baseboard heaters. My breaker box is westinghouse and all the other circuit breakers are westinghouse. Can't find a Westinghouse 30 amp circuit breaker at Home Depot or Lowes. Whats compatible with a westinghouse 30 amp dbl. pole? (I'm pretty sure it matters, but...) Is westinghouse Co. still in existence?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal for the $$ Circuit breaker box with breakers was a good deal for the price. Works like it should...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a circuit breaker, nothing more, nothing less. What else can I say? DPST circuit breaker. It is what it is, a safety device that one hopes will function as it was designed to in the event there's an electrical overload. An excellent product if it works, with the potential for a horrible disaster if it doesn't.
