I am wondering if a 115 volt window air conditioner will cause a afci breaker to trip on a bedroom circut.. House is not trimmed out yet. My brother and I thought possibly when ac starts up afci may trip. What do you guys think?????

some motors will trip AFCI's, however AC makers are probably addressing this due to 440.65
