Bought this house a couple months ago. One of the rooms has a wall AC
with it's own, dedicated outlet at 230 volts. The AC label says to use a
time delay 15 amp fuse or circuit breaker. The circuit has a 20 amp
circuit breaker. The outlet appears to have #12 wire. To me, it seems it
should have a 15 amp breaker. But it's not uncommon for standard outlets
to have appliance that consume far less than what the wiring and breaker
is rated for.
So should I keep the 20 amp breaker, or go with the 15 amp?
