Electrical Repair Questions? Ask an Electrician for Answers ASAP
Something else pop up?
Yes. If the split circuit is all 12 wire, to ceiling fixtures & outlets in bedrooms, what determines whether I should put 15 AMP or 20 AMP breakers on the double pole breaker?
The wire size dictates the breaker size. #14 wire miust have a 15 amp, #12 is good for 20 amps.
You dont have to put a 20 on #12, but it would be wasting 5 extra amps not doing so.
no problem, always best to verify. thanks
