Hello all, I am having a hard time finding some information about residential new construction wiring (California).
I am building my own home and running all my own electrical. My service entrance is on the end of my garage and my Bedrooms are the furthest they can be from that point...
My distance from service to the very last plug in my master bathroom may be as far as 140 to 160 feet away. This will be a 110v 20amp circuit. I also have another bathroom and a bedroom that will be 100-140 feet from my service. I plan on running 12/3 throughout my entire house.
My questions are -
1. On these long runs, will 12/3 suffice or should i be running a 10/3 or?
2. Also can anyone point me to a good reference web site for the home builder/electrician?
3. Can my lights/fans in these rooms be powered on the same circuit as the wall plugs, or do i have to run separate lighting circuits?
