I'm doing a kitchen remodel and planning to have a hood over the penninsula whish has an on/off button but my electician insists on installing additional wall swich,I live in Massachusetts.
Is there a switched outlet in the room?
The electrical code requires at least on switched outlet at the room entrance (it is sort of silent about multiple entrances).
An outlet a place a fixture can be connected (plugged or hard wired).
A switched receptacle is common in rooms without a ceiling light, the ceiling light is the other option.
