How do I know if I have a 15 amp or 20 amp circuit?

There is an outlet for you to look at. It is a 15amp outlet if the two slots are parallel. If one slot is straight and the other is 'T' shaped, it is a 20 Amp outlet that will accept 15 Amp plugs. The outlet is 20 Amp only if the two slots are parallel.
