Howdy electrical gurus -

I'm looking at upgrading to a new air compressor rated at 21.5 amps. My breaker is a double-pole 20-amp HACR and the outlet is very close to the subpanel (only about about 2 feet away).

Your advice please - what are the chances the 21.5 amp compressor will work anyway? Or, since it's such a short wire run, could the breaker be up-sized?

Thanks in advance!
