Bedroom Heat on AFCI

I am hardwiring multiple 240V, 1200-1650W electric baseboard heaters in 3 bedrooms. Is it necessary to run these off an AFCI circuit, or can i daisy chain them on dedicated 240V circuit? Or is there a better remedy?

No, since they are 240v they are not required to be AFCI protected.


210.12(B) Dwelling Unit Bedrooms. All 120-volt, single phase, 15- and 20-ampere branch circuits supplying outlets installed in dwelling unit bedrooms shall be protected by a listed arc-fault circuit interrupter, combination type installed to provide protection of the branch circuit.
