Does it matter if part of the circuit is wired with 14 gauge wire and part of it is wired with 12 gauge. The whole thing is on a 15-amp breaker. The guys who wired my house ran out of 14 gauge sheathed electrical cable and used 12 on some parts. Is this dangerous?

If the breaker is 15 amp is not a problem. Just make sure someone doesn't change it to 20 amp because they think the whole circuit is 12 guage.
