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

October 8, 2015
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

Answer: 
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 Read More

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. Read Less

Are these actually two Independent 20A legs?

This question is from Homeline 2-20 Amp Single-Pole Tandem Circuit Breaker
Asked by
Elk Grove, CA

March 11, 2015
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?

This is exactly what you want. This tandem breaker is two independent 20A breakers that just share a space. They also share the same connection to the bus, so just keep that in mind when you're adding additional circuits, trying to keep your load balanced across both 120V legs of your single-phase service.
Usually that's not a problem but you wouldn't want all of your high amp circuits on one leg of Read More
