Is it still around? If so, what can and can't you do regarding work.
Ok, you do not need to install AFCI circuit breakers for any new branch circuits as long as the "footprint" of the home isn't altered.

•New circuit for bedroom receptacles (not required)
•New circuit for living room window air conditioner (not required)
•New circuit for new room addition (required)

Yes you can do 100a to 100a.

The rehabilitation code basically says as long as you are making the situation better, and not making it any worst.

Changing an old 100a for a new 100a falls under this.

I have seen new service panels in showers in Trenton with city stickers on them. Not reccomended but Legal under NJ rehab code.

Ok, all news to me. So what happens now if you have an old panel and they don't make AFCI circuit breakers?

...only if AFCI protection is available for the panel.....obviously, fuses and FPE are not going to have AFCI protection originating at the panel.


Is there an AFCI recept. on the market yet?

There is a document titled:
Rules that make sense - NJ's Rehabilitation Subcode
[or very close to that] that really explains the logic behind the rehab code.
Having an understanding of the logic behind will help you to understand it....and that EI who bust your chops.

I'll accept close to that , but seriously doubt NJ ever penned any document with the phrase " makes sense " on it , lol ! Making sense and New Jersey are like trying to mix oil and water . My wife works for the state , believe me , your head would spin if you knew half of what goes on .
