The wire gauge indicates the electrical wire sizing, as defined by the American Wire (AWG) system. The most common gauges are 10, 12 or 14. The gauge and diameter of the wire are inversely related.What gauge electrical wire should I use?
In practice, most lighting circuits are controlled by a 15 amp circuit breaker, and therefore 14 gauge wire is acceptable. Circuits with power outlets are often controlled by 20 amp breakers and should be wired with 12 gauge wire. Always match the gauge of wire to the capacity of the circuit breaker.Which gauge wire should I be using?
You must also use a 12-gauge wire when connecting an outlet rated for 20 amps, as many GFCI outlets are, even if the appliances you plug in are rated for only 15 amps. Most houses have one or more 240-volt outlets to service an electric dryer, stove or water heater.
