Any way you can measure the current that normally would run through that switch? That's what we need to make that decision. Knowing the ratings of the switches is fine, but doesn't tell us what the circuit is providing current wise. The lower the better because a 15 amp AC switch is NOT going to be able to handle a 16 amp DC circuit for long. It'll get hot. So, measure the circuit current and if it's under ~5 amp, sure, use any ol' 15 amp AC switch.
