    Well if you want the truth and if I did the math correctly there is a $4.83 difference in price.

    Not in the case for BR breakers. BR AFCI's like GE's do not have any GF protection.

    DF cost $12 more that AF with my current contract pricing for Square D. That is 100% profit for them. Square D HOM and QO AFCI's have 30-50ma ground fault protection so the only difference between the AF and a DF is the GF setting.

    Do you know the pricing of HOM and QO between AFCI and dual function?

    Home Despot is a good gauge MBrooke

    https://www.homedepot.com/b/GE/Dual-...c1vZloZ1z0mh35

    A while ago we did a 3 fam reno, i was used to afci's ,but this was my first DF venture

    We parked each unit's panel out of, but within sight of the kitchen, the gist being to meet lotto, accessibility concerns in 422

    everything was either afci or DF

    and we used GE , which never seem to trip anywhere near what normal gfci receptacle do

    overall , i'd say it was a code compliant bid winner

    speaking as an EC of course, satan's spawn , etc etc....

    Thanks And yet, it still costs more than a standard AFCI.

    Does anyone know of any difference in quality or function between these two Eaton BR DF breakers. The BRAFGF115CS and the BRLAFGF115CS the physical size?

    My former boss was on a buying program with the local supplier for Homeline, but he said the price was only a few dollars difference from HD. Using the supplier was more for convenience than anything else.

    About $15 for me. I use them everywhere afi/gfi are required.

    I only use gfci receps in bathrooms.
