    Default Bath Electric Code

    I'll be having a Broan fan, light and GFCI receptacle in a bathroom. Is this ok to do in NY? See the first diagram.

    IF the circuit does NOT leave this one bathroom, AND is a 20A circuit wired with #12, you can certainly have all this on it.

    A better approach would be to find, or run, a circuit for the lights and fan. Then run a new 20A circuit for the receptacle.
    Did your question not get answered over at CT?

    I believe that it will depend on your local code. When I rewired my upstairs bath, I was required to have the Fan/Light and the outlet on separate circuits, both GFCI protected. I pulled a new circuit from a GFCI breaker for the fan/light and used the old circuit, which used to power the light and outlet, for two outlets, one GFCI and one run off the load side of the first.

    Where are you located that they required this absurd code?
