My 15 amp breaker keeps tripping, can I replace it with a 20 amp breaker?

The breaker sizing is determined by the size and insulating material of the wire that it is protecting as determined by the National Electric Code.  You should not use a larger amperage breaker than is proper for the wire you are trying to protect.  We suggest that you contact a qualified electrician to help you determine what size breaker would be appropriate for your circuit.
