Hi all. I am new to the forum. There is some great info here, thanks for the help!
I am remodeling a master bathroom. It is very small (about 8x4). It currently shares a circuit with the main bath. I’d like to put this room on its own 20amp GFCI circuit. THere is currently only a light over the vanity (no fan or outlet in the room). AFter the remodel, I would like 1 outlet, a light over the vanity (200watt) and a light/fan (100watt) in the ceiling. My understanding is that the fan should be on the GFCI circuit anyway so can I just use one dedicated circuit for everything in this room or do I need one for the outlet and another for the lighting? I realize that its probably not ideal to have the lighting with with GFCI outlet, but I am not concerned about being in the dark as its a small room and there is a window.
Second, if this is possible (code) is there any reason that you cannot use 15amp switches on the 20amp circuit? My understanding is that this is ok, but the reverse is not but I am by NO means an expert!
