My breaker box is full and I would like to add a couple of Bathroom Vent/Heaters/Light Combo Units. Where do I find Half-Height breakers and is there any negatives on installing them? I have a 200amp box and need to add a couple more circuits.

First look at you panel to see if it will accept the 1/2" breakers. The label should(may) have a designation such as 20/40 which simply means 20 1" breakers or 40 1/2" breakers will fit into the panel. Some panels will not accept the 1/2" breakers.

You wrote "a designation such as 20/40 which simply means 20 1" breakers or 40 1/2" breakers". I am a little confused. If 20/40 means 20 1" breakers. What is the 1/2" disignation is it that 40/40 is 40 1/2" breakers. Thanks

40/40 would be 40 full-size (1") breakers. What does your panel say?

Look here for that information, look or on the cover of the cabinet enclosing the panelboard:

Thanks. I will check the website for my answer.

The only info I found on the panel was the model # HOMC40UC.
