Customer Questions & Answers

will this work to power a cadet 240v in wall heater?

I have a few cadet 240v heaters to install and don't have the space in my panel for true double pole full size breakers, will one of these provide 240v to the heater? These breakers are marked 120/240 so I assume these are able to provide 240v??? If these will not work, lets say I want to install 2 heaters, (actually have 5) what if i use two of these tandem breakers and connect one wire from each heater to each of the breakers that would connect each heater to two separate lugs on the panel, is that against code and a stupid idea? Thanks very much for any tips & guidance
Asked by: jaym1818
For a 240v circuit, you need a two-pole breaker. This tandem breaker is just two single-pole circuits that share a slot in the panel and are both on the same 120V connection. It will supply two different 120V circuits. For your specific needs you need to determine what amperage the wiring for your heaters is rated for. Are they 240V @ 20A, maybe 30A or 40A? Pick the two-pole breaker based on that (don't get one larger than your wiring is rated for). When wiring your 5 heaters, make sure not to exceed the rated amperage for any single circuit. For example, depending on your Cadet model, it might only use 1.5 A @ 240V for the smaller models 2 foot long heaters, or could use as much as 10.5A @ 240V for the 8 foot long heaters. Do your homework and definitely make sure you know what you're doing, or seek professional help... DIY isn't worth burning down your home if you miscalculate anything with electricity.

clip where circuit breaker plugs in is not deep enough

I am trying to replace 4 single pole 20 amp circuit breakers with 2 - 20 amp tandem breakers, but the opening where the metal "knife" of the bus bar goes into the breaker is not as deep on the tandem as it is on the single pole breakers and so the tandem breaker does not seat in the panel. Am I missing something? Do I need a different breaker, is there something else that I need to do? There is another tandem breaker in my panel. My house is only 7 years old so I would not expect it to be an issue with Square D changing the design. Any help would be appreciated.
Asked by: clueless
The short notch rejection feature of a HOMT tandem circuit breaker prevents it from fitting in Homeline load centers not designed to accept tandem breakers or designed to accept only a certain quantity of tandem breakers. Wiring diagram in the load center will indicate the proper locations tandem breakers may be installed.

Asked by: skeeter
Only Homeline load centers that are designed and UL listed for tandem breakers will accept HOMT tandem branch circuit breakers. Inspect the bus stab of existing Homeline load center that the breaker plug-on jaws connect to. The bus stab that will accept a tandem branch circuit breaker will be notched in the middle; a solid bus stab will accept full-sized HOM branch circuit breakers only.

Are these actually two Independent 20A legs?

I'm needing to install two 20A dedicated circuits in my garage for running aquarium heaters in a bunch of tanks, but don't want to eat up more space in my home panel than needed. Are these two 20A legs truly independent of one another, or will exceeding 20A on either leg kill power across both? I seem to recall my 15A compressor tripped one leg of my existing tandem 20A on a cold morning as I had two 300W heaters running as well (7.5A#, and killed power to all the outlets which are on that same leg #as it should). The other leg, which is vacant, was not tripped, which seems to indicate it acts as a separate circuit. Or do I just need to install two separate 20A single-pole standard breakers and eat up two slots in the panel? Bottom line, what is the best and most efficient way to do this?

I purchased a Square D Homeline 150 amp 30-space 40-circuit indoor main breaker load center - Model #202523140. The Home Depot web site listed this as a compatible breaker to the load center. It is not. It will only work on a load center with a bus flange of 1/4" in depth. The bus flange on the load center I purchased was nearly 1" in depth. Therefore, this breaker would not push down onto the bus correctly. The load center I purchased would not accept any of the Homeline Tandem breakers offered by Home Depot that we purchased.
