this is a double barrell question.

1.)can you feed the required outlet for HVAC maint from the same circuit that feeds a bedroom? The circuit is arc fault protected.

2.) can you feed the light in the bathroom and the light in the laundry room from the bathroom circuit? I know the laundry circuit itself can only have a built in appliance like an iron on it...nothing else and has loading restrictions..80% i think...

vent/light combo only no heat.

thanks for any replies

For the bathroom recept you must feed it with a 20 amp circuit. This can feed all the bath gfis,or just one bath gfi, or one bath gfi and other lights or such in that same bath only.

Read closely the last sentence and the exception.

Such circuits shall have no other outlets.

Ex. Where a 20-ampere circuit supplies a single bathroom, outlets for other equipment within the same bathroom shall be permitted to be supplied in accordance with section 210-23(a).

hi frodo, the answer to the 1st question is that there isnt anything that requires an hvac servicing receptacle from being on a specific circuit and nothing that limits an afci circuit to a bedroom, if that was the question
