What size breaker do I need for a 230 volt air compressor?

Depending on the model of your 230 volt air compressor, you'll want to check the manual to find the right-sized wire for your unit. The most common size wire you'll need is a 10-gauge wire. However, some manufacturers recommend a 12-gauge wire to operate a 230 volt air compressor.
