Im dealing with tripping AFCI's with blower motors on the circuit. I would imagine the motor and AFCI industry has implemented standards to prevent this. Is anyone aware of such standards? Could save me a bit of time tracking them down, Thanx!

I have to ask, why are there 'blower motors' on an AFCI protected circuit?
