Multi-part electrical questions...
1) can you run 3 wire(with a ground) in a residential building to two separate circuits? EXAMPLE: Our dishwasher, and disposal are each on their own circuits, but share a common neutral..? Isnt that an unbalanced load?
2) Can an arc fault breaker installed in bedrooms, also be hooked to lights? Both of my kids bedrooms share a 15 amp arc fault and their lights are on it too.
3) Our bathrooms(all three of them), share a 20 amp circuit(the outlets), the first one has a GFI, but if you "test" it, all of them quit working, so it is a shared line.
We live in Georgetown Kentucky, I work as an electrician at the Lexington Center, have the "ugly" book, but dont know residental codes. We have lived in our new house for about three weeks, keep popping breakers... Want to know what to do... Thanks!
