Running out of room.
 
HI there.

I need to add one more breaker in my panel for my dishwasher.
Problem is there isnt any additional slots. Its a 100 amp service but only has room for 16 breakers. That doesnt seem like alot of draw but I will work out the total.

Are there breakers that take up a single slot but can supply 2 15 amp circuits

Just curious.:whistling2:

Cheers,
Rusty

Yes. They're called tandem breakers.
