    Default AFCI receptacles

    When receptacles are changed out in existing house, those new plugs must go in as AFCI or AFCI protected in accordance with 406.4(D)?
    Side note... I just had an inspection at my personal house and the inspector said no, only recommended unless new construction. That contradicts what Holt said..

    Marc,

    Here (Washington St) we are now under the 2014 NEC. And if you replace a receptacle in an area that is required to be AFCI/GFCI protected they are to replace with the appropriate protection which in some cases is both AFCI and GFCI (and tamper proof if applicable ; ).

    Also this is a modification of the circuit that needs to be permitted, FYI.

    I am telling my clients that any room that is not a bathroom or attached garage now needs AFCI protection.

    Here is a graphic I made. Everyone feel free to use.

    We haven't adopted 2014 yet. I like the image, thanks for that.
