Your question is quite vague. Are you trying to run a new circuit from the panel to two switches to control an exhaust fan and light?

Why 12-3 to the box but only 12-2 to the fan unit?


Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.

1) Put a more descriptive title to your thread next time. Not just "wiring".
Since this is the "electrical" forum it is pretty clear that a question is probably about "wiring".

2) Phrase your post in the form of a question if you are asking a question. And give us detail, detail, detail!

As Jim stated, your question is too vague to even try to answer.

It should be 12-2 to box and 12-3 to fan light. Or you can run 14-2 and 14-3 to fan light. I think thats what he is trying to say.
