comment What could be causing AFCI breaker and GFCI receptacle nuisance tripping?
So, since removing all surge protectors on my AFCI and GFCI circuits no tripping. Knock on wood I guess.

Interestingly enough, I have removed all surge protectors from every AFCI and GFCI protected circuit and have not had any tripping since I wrote this in September.

Latest theory. Each AFCI and GFCI outlet that "trips" has a surge protector on it. I read somewhere that a surge on my grid could cause each of these surge protectors to handle the surge, which would cause the AFCI and GFCI to sense that there is a power imbalance hence tripping the breaker. I also read that AFCIs are much more sensitive to ground faults which is what it would sense if there is a surge that the surge protectors are having. I am removing all surge protectors from the house plugged into AFCI/GFCI to check.

No attic fan. I do have electric radiant floor heating that cycles on and off, but that's in the bathroom on a different circuit.
