I just bought a 40 year old house. I am replacing all 15 amp duplex receptacles in the house because they are all old. The circuit breakers to those receptacles are 20 amp breakers and the wires are 12 gauge. Should I go ahead and change the breakers to 15 amp breakers along with the 15 amp duplex receptacles and leave the wires alone at 12 gauge?
