Wiring in the garage is old bx ungrounded and weird do it yourself odd unsafe wiring. Detached garage, power is coming into garage from home circuit breaker with 14 gage wiring 15amps. In the garage there is a circuit breaker. The circuit breaker is the old style screw in type but the screw in type is a screw in type that can be reset when tripped. There is 2 screw in breakers.
Since there is a circuit breaker in the garage, can I switch to 12 gage wiring leaving the 14 gage wiring coming into the garage circuit breaker. If I can should I use a 15 amp breaker or 20amp breaker.
