This house was built in 1989, Santa Clarita, CA area. Crouse Hinds Panel look original and some breakers have been replaced with newer Cutler Hammer BD 2020 Types BRD & A. Panel label was somewhat difficult to read but the replacement criteria seems kinda vague to me and when I look around on the net, I’m not really getting clear cut info on whether Cutler Hammer Breakers of this type are okay for this panel.
This has been an all to common concern lately - mix/match breakers and panel.
Seems to me that the proper course of action when it comes to panels and breakers, would be to use the RECOMMENDED BREAKERS and REPLACEMENT PARTS THAT THE MANUFACTURER HAS PRINTED ON THEIR PANELS. However, Crouse Hinds does not seem to be clear in this case. WTF???](*,)
If anyone has any insight to this, IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
