20A breakers?

I'm sure that most people know, but you don't just step up to a 20 amp breaker. If there's a 15 amp breaker in your panel it probably means it's feeding 14 gauge wire. Unless you know for sure that there's all 12 gauge on the circuit you don't want to replace a 15 amp breaker with a 20.

I moved into a house where the previous owner had done this. Even the home inspection before I purchased didn't catch it. I found the problem a year later while doing some wiring. Had a lot of electronics on that circuit. Fortunate the house didn't burn down.
