What are AMPS?
Circuit breakers come in different amp ratings. Some are 15 amp breakers and some are 20 amp. An “amp” or “ampere” is a measurement of an electrical charge. There is a whole scientific explanation for the word, but basically an “AMP” as a measurement of heat. The heat is caused by electrons (electrical current) flowing through the wires. When the current you are using, exceeds the amps (heat) that the breaker can withstand, the circuit is broken as a safety measure.
