Hello everyone,

I have been doing some internet research and am having trouble trying to figure out the NEC for California on AFCI/GFCI breakers.

I am trying to show proof to home warranty insurance that AFCI breakers are part of the NEC and required for all dwellings (e.g. each bedroom). From what I have read the 2017 changes actually have more requirements for AFCI.

Please correct me if I am wrong/missing information.

TL;DR - Are AFCI breakers for each room/bedroom a code requirement in California?
