Question about going from 15amp circuit break to 20 amp
When the geothermal guy was here flushing our system, his pump tripped the circuit breaker. We discovered it was a bad circuit breaker. I had a 15 amp and a 20 amp replacement for it. He volunteered to replace it for me, which was very nice of him. It was a 15 amp circuit breaker that was in there, and I asked him if we should go to 20amp because of what happened. He said it didn't really matter, so we went with the 20 amp.
I want to be sure this was an okay thing to do. He said 5 amps wouldn't make a difference. I don't know much about this, so hopefully we did the right thing. Thanks for your help.
P.S. On this circuit are several lights, a water softener, an exterior GFCI and sometimes an extra fridge (which we aren't using right now.)
