hello all forum users.
I am finishing a basement and need to have it to code for inspection. there are a few question that i need answered.
1.in the framed bedroom i have eight outlets 2 of which are on the ceiling (possible mounted tv) thesE i know need BRAF type circuit breakers.on a seperate circuit i have 2 luminaries each controled by a switch. DO THESE LIGHTS NEED TO BE ON A ARC FAULT BREAKER? on a 3rd circuit where a work light was in middle of framed bedroom. I switched out the box with one rated for the weight of a fan. DOES THIS FAN AND REST OF CIRCUT UPSTAIRS NEED TO BE ON A ARC FAULT ALSO?
2. i have 9 linear ft. of counter space in a kitchenette, forming a right angle with a bar sink in middle of right angle. there is frig under counter with dedicated 15 amp on 14/3 and a outlet within the 6 foot rule, 12 inches off of ground, also on a dedicated 15 amp from that 14/3. DO I STILL NEED 2 20 AMP CIRCUITS ABOVE COUNTER? DO BOTH DEDICATED 15 AMP CIRCUITS NEED GFI'S? DOES THAT WORK WITH 14/3?
3. in a utility room where the furnace and hot water tank live i have a framed wall on one side and a concrete wall on the other. on the concrete wall is the electrical panal. a deicated 20 amp outlet is directly below panal. i came out of panal with emt conduit and 3 feet to the right of panal i installed a metal one gang. 3 feet above this i installed a 2nd metal single gang. from orginal metal box i continued emt 9 feet into framed wall for a full circuit in the gameroom.DO THESE 2 BOXES IN UTILITY ROOM NEED TO BE ON A 20 AMP CIRCUIT? DO I ALSO NEED GFI PROTECTION FOR THE 2?
also in the utility room I have a framed wall. (which on the other side is a bathroom) 2 outlets are on this wall in utility room. DO THEY NEED TO BE A 20 AMP CIRCUIT? DO ALL OUTLETS IN UTILITY ROOM NEED TO BE GFI PROTECTED?
4.I Have 5 14/2NM WIRE in a round ceiling box that can only handle 10 14 g. wires. IS THIS A VIOLATION? the largest round box i have found is carlon capable of 12 14g wires. IS THERE A LARGER BOX OR DO I NEED TO DIVIDE THE BOX UP? DO PIGTAILS COUNT AS A WIRE WHEN ADDING UP WIRES?
any help would be very thankful.
