I bought a new house and would like to add more outlets in the basement gameroom. After reviewing the wiring situation as purchased I found that there are 7 receptacles on one 15 amp breaker, along with 2 overhead lights and 5 flourescent lights. Is this acceptable by code? I would like to add about 5 more. Should I use a 20 amp breaker with 12 gauge wire?
