Some older ones are still on 15 amp.
I see NEW ones with 15A still being installed. Hell, we throw breakers all the time on the site in these new houses with only 1 or 2 things on each circuit. You wouldn't believe it, but I've seen them installing 15A circuits with maybe 5 15A receptacles WITH stationary halogen lighting, all on the same! Its not common, but I've seen it. I don't know how some of these places past inspection!
That was actually one of the things I was going to add, but decided to ask later..is how many things you have on that circuit, You don't want to have that all buttoned up and throw a breaker at full load.
