You've gotta love homebuilders. The house we have (built in 2003) is wired in a manner in which two bedrooms are on the same 15amp circuit. Occasionally (once every three to four weeks or so), when one of my kids turns an item on while other devices (lights, ceiling fan, computer) are on, the breaker trips. Now, I know enough about electrical that this is because the load has exceeded the breaker.
What I'm wanting to know is two things. One, because this is so infrequent, could I replace the 15amp breaker with a 20 amp? If not, would anyone have a guesstimate as to how I could fix this problem? Would I have to have the two rooms rewired on separate circuits? If so, any prospective ideas as to what this would cost? Thanks for any and all help.
