Absolutely safe. #12 gauge wire is the normal size wiring installed, even if the circuit breaker is smaller than 20amps. Sleep well. You're absolutely safe! It's the rating of the ckt. bkr. that protects your electrical device....A 15a ckt. bkr. can accommodate a maximum of 1440 watts @ 120vac [80% of 15a)
