Now as a HI and a EC I look at this in many ways but it is I guess my main concern is that most new home owners hardly ever go in their panel and really do not know what breakers are beyond the “things they flip” to reset their errors…lol
But having the redundancy causes many calls sometimes to electricians when the people say....the button tripped on the GFCI but I can't reset it and they do not even think to go to the panel...trust me I had that call the other day......cost me time on the phone to explain it...
So....the short of that story is...if you notice a redundancy like that go out of the way to atleast explain it to the buyer so they know where BOTH reset features are.....just a courtesy is all...
But on the HI side.....not really a hazzard or anything I would report as such.
