I would appreciate all feedback on this.
I consistently see the AFCI breakers warmer by several degrees than the rest of the breakers in the panel, especially when they are in a bank of AFCI breakers. From the research I have found, this is apparently normal.
I am wondering why these particular breakers are consistently warmer. Do others out there call this situation out in the report ? I am also wondering what the long term effects will be if a bank of warm AFCI breakers is present in an electric panel
I have attached a thermal image from this situation I saw today at an inspection.
Thanks in advance all…
