I am remodeling a bathroom that used 14 gauge in 1993 with a 15 amp breaker. Three out of four outlets are being moved. Do I need to run 12 gauge back to the panel or can I use the existing 14gauge wire?
Would re-using the 14gauge meet code?
In my jurisdiction during a remodel of my bathroom I had to put in a dedicated 20 amp circuit for an outlet in the bathroom. Runs my electric toothbrush and norelco shaver real well, all .5 amp. Guess that breaker will never trip. My wife who uses the hair dryer that these things are supposed to power prefers to dry her hair in the bedroom with big mirror. So the hair dryer is plugged into an older 15 amp general purpose circuit. Generally once you remodel grandfathering does not apply.
