I'm in the process of remodeling a 1920's home which will have:
- A Main Floor Bathroom with
- (1) GFCI receptacle (on a 20A dedicated circuit)
- (1) Exhaust fan/light over the shower (on the same 20A dedicated circuit)
- (2) vanity lights (utilizing an existing 15A circuit)
- (1) ceiling light (also utilizing the existing 15A circuit)
I would like to use the same two circuits described above for the:
- 2nd Floor Bathroom that has
- (1) GFCI receptacle (on the same 20A dedicated circuit)
- (1) Exhaust fan/light within 18 inches the shower (on the same 20A dedicated circuit)
- (2) vanity lights (also utilizing the existing 15A circuit)
Does this meet code? Or do I need to dedicate a 20A circuit to each bathroom?
Kinda meet the code but it will not really fly in most places AFAIK
To meet the code 100% this what you will have to do two options one is have both bathroom receptales on one circuit however nothing else will be hook up to it and the light from other circuit which you can use just remember you will have to use the AFCI for this due most states will required it if you are on 2005 or later NEC codes,
Or second option which I rather do this often
Run it own circuit for each bathrooms that useally take care of it.
