Re: Smaller size wire on 20A circuit for dedicated purpose?
said by pende_tim:Can you please point to one of these GFI outlet breakers. I'd like to know more about them.
It you go the 4" box route, simply install 2 GFI outlet breakers.
Presuming you meant that the second 15A that would be fed from the 12AWG wire, that would be against code. GFI outlets are not overcurrent breakers and can't be used as such. They do make GFI breakers which serve as both a GFI and overcurrent protector, but that wouldn't work for what you are suggesting.
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.
