220 Breaker Question?

Is there a difference between a 110 dual and a 220 dual breaker with a bar between? I'm trying to run my 220 two wire circut, black-red-bare wire for a heater without success?

Yeah there is a big difference, the 110 dual has both wires on the same phase(line) and won't give you 220. You need a 2 pole breaker to get both phases.

I assume this a residential breaker panel, the next space under the new breaker you just put in is the other phase

Exactly correct Rick3236! Funny how you forget little things when you don't do them that often! Thanks for your help
