12 guage romex vs 14 guage
I am adding an additional fluorescent light (two 48" T8 bulbs) in my garage and will need to run about eight feet of wire from an existing light to supply power. There are two lights in a series connected by 14 guage wire. I have some left over 12 guage romex and wonder if it is okay to use it instead of 14 guage. Otherwise, I will buy some more 14 guage. Basically, is it safe to go from smaller guage to larger in this application? Thanks for any help.
