15 or 20 amp outlets
In other posts I have mentioned that I am re-wiring my garage. I thought I knew exaclty what I was going to do and then someone at Home Depot confused me.
First of all, all of the wire I am using is 12/2. Also, I live in New York State and the garage is detached from my house in case that matters for anything.
Basically, I was told that if I am using 12/2, and the circuit has a 20 amp breaker, I can't use 15 amp outlets. Does that sound legit?
If the 15 amp outlets are ok, I have another question. Can I use a mixture of 20 amp and 15 amp outlets on the same circuit?
