Re: Smaller size wire on 20A circuit for dedicated purpose?

said by AVD:

said by pende_tim:

It you go the 4" box route, simply install 2 GFI outlet breakers. One would be a 20A that would be feed from the 12AWG wire and then feed any other bathroom 20A outlets ; and then a second 15A that would be fed from the 20AWG wire that would feed the 14AWG for the light.

wouldn't it be easier to fish in new wire?

From the OP's initial problem statement: "I am having a major issue running a new wire for the lights above the sink, there is a big AC duct above which blocks access."

He could go sideways, or go low.

Can't, there are studs and joists blocking, only way is to come from above but that is blocked.

I already closed the ceiling and floor. Side would involve a 90 degree turn behind studs.
I'll just use the 15A circuit for those lights.
