I wish I were more knowledgeable about electrical stuff but I'm not so here is the dumb question of the day. When a motor is rated at x number of amps, is that rating the actual amp draw all the time when the motor is running or something else? The reason I ask is that I'm looking at buying a compressor that is rated at 15amps and the circuit in my garage is on a 15amp breaker. Will I be tripping the breaker every time I turn the compressor on?
No announcement yet.
