Skinny on AFCI


I am in south Seattle. I got my permit yesterday and will hold off on buying the breakers until he shows up for the rough-in inspection and I will ask him what is needed. I've met him before. He's a good guy.

Another potential issue... I was up in the attic last night planning the routes of the cable I'm going to run, and came to realize that my pen style voltage detector was giving me a positive reading from everything solid I was touching it to -- from loops of old wire no longer connected to anything to the rafters and the wood roof deck. It is a mess up there with a mix of old k&t and ungrounded two wire cable. Killing the breaker for the second story lights seems to eliminate it. My current project will take most of the load off of that circuit, but I won't be able to remove that wiring and circuit from the network for a while as it powers a few other random things around the house. How worried should I be about this? Thanks.
