I recently inspected a new home, homeowner complained that every time she plugged in a clothes iron (1200 watt) into an upstairs bedroom the AFCI would trip, shutting off the power to bedroom and the downstairs Office/Den.
Usually I find only the bedrooms only are protected by AFCI’s. Is multiple use allowed by the NEC or is this just bad wiring practice, the builder did use the worst and I’m sure the cheapest Electric/Plumbing/HVAC all purpose contractor they could find.The builder is Stewart/Kret.
All opinions appreciated. Thanks, John
