I am converting an existing room into a bathroom that currently has a 15A circuit. I was told by a friend that in new construction they are running a separate 20A outlet to the GFCI outlet and then another circuit is run to power the light and exhaust fan. Is this required by any National Code? I currently live in Washington, DC.
What I would like to do is use the existing 15A circuit with 14 guage wire to wire the GFCI outlet, the light, and the exhaust fan. Can I do this and meet the national code?
