I am running on 20A wiring (12/2) and replacing some unexpected knob and tubing-the previous owner thought it was a good idea to replace the knob & tubing in the basement and give the appearance the wiring was more modern than it really was. Good thing I am doing this.. so I have 5 separate runs upstairs - 1 for each of 3 bedrooms, 1 for the bathroom, and the last I was going to do the lighting on.
So I have a question.
I was originally planning on having one circuit for each room including the lighting? But having the lighting on a separate circuit seems like a good idea as well. Is there some convention that I should try to adhere? I mean which is the best route... Each room, including the light has it's on circuit or each room has it is own circuit, expect for the lighting (throughout the house-for the most part) - which will be on a separate circuit. Maybe put some of the common electricity, e.g., hallway lighting. on a separate circuit? Please chime in with some advice - I want to start wrapping up this project.
