Bathroom wiring

Iíve done a fair bit of wiring but wanted a fresh set of eyes given that I havenít done this exact configuration before.

This is for a bathroom that is part of a basement reno. Of course the receptacle will be GFCI. Beyond that.... Does anyone see anything wrong with this?

Looks good to me if this is a 15 amp circuit.

Yes, it is 15 amp.... Thanks

It just occurred to me that the way this is wired.... If I do use the GFCI and it trips.... all the lights will go out as well.... I think I may need to send the hot wire from the panel to the wire nut first?

I think this would prevent everything shutting down if the GFCI is tripped.

This works, right?



I was reading somewhere that bathroom exhaust fans might require their own neutral? Does that make sense?

They require a neutral same as any other device on the circuit. Unless this fan is a heater there is no need for a separate circuit.

Just a regular bathroom exhaust fan. No heat.

Thanks Joe
