"" The decision on applying the new construction AFCI
requirements to a circuit modification is that of the authority having jurisdiction. ""
I have seen the AJH waive the AFCI requirement
because there was no "New / Moved Wall" involved.
But he did require 120V Smoke Detectors per code, to replace the Battery ones that existed.
He did suggest, but did not require, that all K&T be 'upgraded', which suggestion I took to the HO and then to the bank. In leaving, after posting the Green Tag, he asked if there was any 'old wiring left', and grinned at my 'No" answer. He invited me to come back to his little town.
Just have to try to get along.
The AHJ represents the other side of the same street.
