If my breaker is tripping can I put in a bigger size breaker?

Do you have had a breaker that keeps tripping? You may be wondering but I just put in a larger size breaker so that I quit having an issue? The short answer to that is no. Breakers are sized based off the wire size so if a larger breaker gets installed, it would allow the wire to have too much power ran on it and get overloaded. The result of that can be burnt insulation, outlets, and the extreme situations potentially a fire.
