We all have them, bathrooms that is. Each bathroom in your home may be a different size and be equipped with different things, but ther are some similarities that we will discuss in this article. There aresome bare minimums when we look at the wiring needs of a bathroom. Let's consider the circuits needed and why.
In a bathroom, there is usually a light or lights, an exhaust fan, and at least one receptacle. Although some bathrooms seem relatively small, that doesn't mean that everything can be put on one circuit. In fact, there must be a different circuit for the receptacle(s) than the one for the lights and fan. This means a minimum of two circuits.
