Christmas Light Circuit Breaker
Two years ago, we put in an entire seperate breaker just to run christmas lights. (Yeah, I know crazy). We ran #12/2 wire to the box outside and had a 15 amp breaker in our breaker box. What I want to know is if it is safe to replace the 15 amp breaker with a 20 amp breaker since I have already tripped the 15 amp breaker several times. Can the #12/2 gauge wire handle a 20 amp draw, or is that a fire hazard? Thanks.
