What's this cage around the breaker?
Can anyone tell me why this cage is around the breaker in this picture?
It's the breaker for my furnace.
I have a 15 amp tandem breaker with an open spot. I would like to put the furnace on that to free up the space but I don't know why the cage is there?
If the cage is necessary, can I move the existing breaker (and cage) up to the top of the panel where tandems are not allowed? This would free up the space where it currently resides for a tandem.
