I live in an apartment with a flatmate, in Ontario, Canada. I have a Honeywell Warm Mist Top Fill Humidifier (HWM-340BC from Canadian Tire, I imagine it should be akin to HWM-340B here: https://www.honeywellstore.com/store/products/easy-to-care-warm-mist-humidifier-hwm-340b.htm) and I use it because I have breathing difficulty at low humidity. However, it occasionally trips the breaker, and the breaker controls all the electric sockets in both bedrooms, which is not acceptable because my roommate does his work on a desktop computer.
Last time I brought this up with maintenance, and the guy basically said "Plug it into one of the other circuits" because apparently the bedroom circuits are all controlled by an arc-fault circuit (as mandated in new apartments by Canadian building guidelines)? I have to flick the breaker to reset it, and the breaker has a TEST button on it. The other breakers have stickers on them that say Schneider so I'm inclined to believe this one is made by Schneider as well.
Is there an easy fix wherein I can use my humidifier? I.e. a power surge power bar or something?
