Re: Elecrical Outlet Amperage Max
A 15 amp breaker is not really a 15 amp breaker it depends on the ambient air temp and the continuous load. The load center style breakers are a thermal magnetic type breaker as they have a bimetallic strip that will trip the breaker like when a motor bearing is going out and itís drawing to much current and a magnetic coil that will trip on a short circuit. I think all breakers have an 80% rating unless they are marked 100% rated.
You could switch to a 20 amp receptacle but youíre wiring is only 14g so that would need to upgraded to 12g and then the breaker will need to be 20 amp also.
