I'm trying to stay on top of the electricians rewiring our house and correctly interpret the NEC 2017 for arc fault breakers. There is a permit and an inspection when they done, but I want to understand it myself and stay on top of it.
Should there be an arc fault breaker on every breaker, or are there exceptions where it's best not to? (and not required by code)
Reading the code bathrooms aren't required? Why not?
What about furnace, air conditioner and stove?
Finally, outlets in a basement woodworking room?
I want everything done to code and as safe as possible.
