If I change a 15amp circuit breaker to a 30 amp circuit breaker, do I also have to change the wire?


I got a new air compressor, but it trips the circuit, so I have to change my breaker. I thought that I would also have to change the wire, but someone told me that I can use the 12 gauge wire that is currently in the wall.

    Thank you for the help Slarty. I don't think that anything else is on that line. I will have to double check.
