Electrical Fire Danger

How to determine wiring capability?

That is done via various mathematical formulas.

To determine the wattage being used you can simply use this formula:
watt = amp × volt 
So if you have a circuit and it is limited to 15 amps and your voltage is 120 volts
then you can see that 15 amps X 120 volts = 1,800 watts, so your wattage would be 1,800

If you remember earlier though even though the circuit might be good for 1,800 watts
the safe continuous amperage rating is only 12 amps.
So to get that value in watts we multiply the amperage as we did before times the voltage,
so 12 amps X 120 Volts = 1,440 watts.
