I started to remodel one of my rooms and I have had to look into the wiring, now that I'm adding outlets and switches.
I checked a wire in a room early on and it was 14/2. That's what I decided to go with for the rest of the wiring. After wiring all the new outlets and routing them to their respective existing outlets, I found that they're all 12/2. Not sure why they're all different.
The most unusual issue, the breaker they go to is a 60 amp. Yep, 60. Whole room ties into the furnace.
My question is, can I continue to run the 14/2 wiring into the 12/2 existing outlets, all on a 60 amp breaker? More surprises to come with the house. Thanks!
