Subject: Arc fault breakers


Name: michael

Question: I have a house I bought that was built in 1925 and we put
some new electrical lines in and a new breaker box. Do I
have to put in all Arc fault breakers to meet code?

Answer: Hi Michael,

I can't answer that question. It fall under the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction)clause in the code. Here in Philadelphia the L&I are starting to enforce that The Arc Fault breaker more and more. They are a good idea but I do understand the add extra expense. This question is best directed to who ever is inspecting your work.
