comment Mold on Ceiling on Flat Paint
We leave the fan running at almost all times. There are only a maximum of two people using the shower per day, one by morning and one by night and we're careful to always run the fan. I'm beginning to suspect that the fan vent is clogged or something, not sure that the fan actual does anything, though it makes noise.

Sorry. Most of the walls have tile coming up to around 40 inches of the wall, the rest is drywall. The second picture is the shower, which is entirely surrounded by tiles, except for the ceiling, which is drywall.

Yes, the bottom picture is the shower. Material seems to be porous tile.

comment What causes a breaker to trip?
Is there a reason why using a lower-amperage breaker would be appropriate? Is there a certain type of wiring which is necessary for higher-load applications? ie: why wouldn't I wire my entire house with 30A breakers? If it's because of heat, can't I use better insulated wire to work around the problem?

So, TL;DR: A breaker trips when there's more amperage draw than is allowed/rated by the breaker itself?

comment Wiring a house to prevent light flickers and overloaded breakers
I guess I have another question then: is there any reason why not to make a separate breaker for every outlet/light fixture in the house? As a software developer, an idea of "separation of concerns" comes to mind immediately: separate things out so that if a fault is experienced, it doesn't affect everything else.

comment Wiring a house to prevent light flickers and overloaded breakers
Unfortunately, "up-to-code" is something that I've never experienced in a place of residence. 16-on-center? Try 12 then 16 then 18.5, then 5. I've seen some pretty strangely built places, I guess.
