20 year old townhome on slab, was apartment housing, now sold as single family home. Entire place is being updated, new kitchen, carpet and HVAC…
Three bedrooms on the second floor, each with a brand new ceiling fan and light with separate dimmer controls for each, placed in the switch box by the door.
As I normally do, I turned off the switch and checked all of the outlets. One came up with no power. I see this all the time for a floor lamp. I turned on the dimmer switch and sure enough my tester lit up. I looked at the ceiling lamp and sure enough it was working with the dimmer and so was the outlet.
All 3 bedrooms were wired exactly the same.
I explained to my client that having the dimmer control the outlet was not a good idea and recommended repairs.
Also had 3 outlets in the kitchen with open grounds, 2 were gfi.
