Correct, always 20A for us.

I live in an apartment in CA built in 1962.

There are now GFCIs in either the bathroom sink area or the kitchen sink area.

I get scared using any appliances around these areas, and researched it online but unfortunately it looks like GFCIs retrofitting is not required in pre mid 60's houses....

What should I do - Should I offer to split the cost with the landlord if they are willing to install these?

Or do you recoomend I just pay to have them installed myself?

Or do I just live with it and be extra careful around the water with appliances?

Any thoughts or insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Can anyone explain why this is a deal? There seem to be 20A for roughly the same price-per-unit as someone pointed out. Anything special about this brand?

P.S. It's been a few years since my EE classes, and I don't practice. Anyone know if there's harm in using 20A GFCI for 15A circuits?

EDIT: I imagine there won't be, but wondering why people wouldn't go for the 20A version if that were the case.
You cannot use a 20A Duplex receptacle on a 15A circuit, and there's no reason to use a 20A device in this case because the 15A GFCIs are basically the same as 20A GFCIs. Almost all of the 15A GFCIs out there (never actually seen one that isn't) are rated as 20A pass-thru devices, so the only difference is the faceplate of the receptacle.

There's a lot of misinformation out there floating around about 20A receptacles vs 15A receptacles.

Basically, it comes down to this. Unless you buy the crap $0.67 receptacles at Home Depot, 15A and 20A receptacles are essentially the same exact thing with different faceplates. Next time you go into Home Depot, take an actual look at a Leviton CR20 vs. a CR15.

These will not necessarily bring your house up to code in some places. It all depends on what code your area is using. if you want to buy them for your own well being then it is a very good deal.

Exactly and what I was referring to is 12 gauge cu wire with a 20A receptacle.

I work for an electric engineering co and we never spec 15A receptacles. Always use a 20. Many appliances require more than a 15A ckt. Btw the wire also needs to be #12 cu. The 20 is the same price.

Warning!

Those who ordered/about to order you might want to check to make sure you weren't charged $18.50 each (instead of the advertised $18.00) in the total.

I was checking our when I noticed that the total wasn't correct.

As somebody that recently renovated and rewired my garage (with first-hand knowledge from the inspectors):

1) The only difference between a 15A receptacle and a 20A one is that the latter can accommodate a 20A plug. Unless you actually need a 20A plug, and I'm guessing that most people never will, 15A is fine.

2) You can use a 15A receptacle on a 20A circuit (and this is very often the case), but you can't use a 20A receptacle on a 15A circuit.

3) While it's true that you can chain your outlets off a single GFCI receptacle in order to protect the entire circuit (I did), you need to know which outlet is the first in the circuit to do so. Sometimes, depending on how the wire is run, it may not even be true that there is a single "first" outlet (for example, if you have a splitting junction before any outlets).

4) As of the 2008 NEC codes, any new construction or renovation requires tamper resistant outlets. If you're just replacing outlets in your home, these are fine. But if you're doing anything more serious where you need to pull permits and get an inspection, you'll need TR receptacles.

I do believe that anybody can do basic home electrical work, but make sure you know what you're doing before doing it!

For anyone who needs to meet 2008 NEC (tamper resistant GFCI) there's this:
Leviton T5325-W 15 Amp 125 Volt, Tamper Resistant, Decora Duplex Receptacle, Straight Blade, Grounding, White - $4.81 ea. ships free w/prime:
http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-T53...m_sbs_hi_9

wouldn't this actually be better than what's in the op, since it's cheaper & also meets current code?
That's not a GFCI receptacle.

I don't think this one is GFCI

I seriously don't want to troll here but you know absolutely nothing and giving bad information is worse than giving no information at all. Are you the secretary at the engineering company?

Go buy a copy of the 2011 NEC before you give any information here. Please.

For reference 15A circuit, 14 gauge wire, 20A circuit, 12 gauge wire and there is a host of code requirements for a kitchen and 99% of the time, the refrigerator and built in microwaves are on their own circuits so no need to worry about overloading under normal circumstances.
Just have to say it...where do you get the 99% data from and why are 1% not dedicated? I realize you are merely emphasizing your point, but check yourself before checking others.
