In Ma when you completely rewire an older home. It must be brought up to current code. AFCI protection is required. I just completed a 1920 home for a friend.

I don't think I would agree that extending an existing circuit by adding a receptacle would require an afci to be installed.

How else can you economically provide a code compliant installation on the circuit extension, without providing protection on the entire branch circuit?
