I've got a full slate of 30 full size breakers in my 42 circuit QO Square D panel. I want to convert some to tandem breakers so I can add 4 new circuits from a remodeled bathroom. Do I have the same number of amperage/breaker values on each bus?
Not important in a residential setting. The value of the breaker means nothing. It is the load that is connected. So unless you have some permanent heavy loads like heaters that might be running together don't be concerned.
Breaker panels made by the same manufacturer use common breakers. A 20/40 panel made by the same manufacturer will use the same breakers including tandems.They just happen to fit in the panel you have.
Been gone for a little while. Attached are some shots of what I've got. Any ideas on how I can add 4 new circuits? If removing a couple full size breakers and adding tandem breakers will work on this panel, let me know.
