Time to ask a dumb question but after looking at the NEC for what seems
an eternity... Is there anything in the NEC that forbids using an AFCI
circuit breaker where a non AFCI circuit breaker would work? The reason
I ask I am currently redoing a basement and adding a bedroom that will
require AFCI. At the same time I am adding a few small circuits to an
existing room and it would be a lot easier to just run them off one of
the AFCI circuit breakers rather than run more wire all the way back to
the panel. Yes, I know these are more expensive but so is wire. Thanks
in advance for all the assistance.
