Are you asking if you can use an AFCI versus a GFCI breaker?...can you use a AFCI ckt brkr vice the GFCI ckt breaker?
The new "whole house" requirements are greatly exaggerated. Very basically, areas that require GFI protection do not require AFCI protection.what about the AFCI requirement in the '08 code for full house install? OP never said if this is new or existing
He was wrong IMO. A bathroom is still a bathroom. Door or no door.I had an inspector make us put a AFCI Breaker on a GFI outlet in the bathroom because there was no door that separated the bedroom and the bathroom.
That's funny, I had one try that on me, not because of the door issue but because it was "connected" to the bedroom. I was like "well so does the great room and the great room's connected to the kitchen and the kitchen is connected to....so, where does it end"? He then changed his mind.I had an inspector make us put a AFCI Breaker on a GFI outlet in the bathroom because there was no door that separated the bedroom and the bathroom.
