Re: One electric outlet on different breaker

said by howardfine:

OK but what is normal? What would a new install do?

I am guessing it is normal for an old house. I don't see an issue except for those who assume that power cut off in a room's receptacle = all room receptacles are off.

I did quite a bit of studying to make sure all the electric work would be code compliant before my brother-in-law took over. Unfortunately, I've forgotten nearly everything after two years and I'm having trouble getting motivated to start over.

I can't care less what is normal in an old house. I want to know if a new house gets wired that way.

The idea of having different outlets on different breakers should one of them trip is a good reason.

A 1991 house I lived in had two circuits going to my bedroom, one of them was shared with the bathroom. Is that new enough?
