Electrical Outlets Question:

How many electrical outlets can be on one circuit?

Thanks

Hi N. - Great Electrical Repair Question!
It really depends on where the electrical outlets will be located, what wire size you will be using and what the receptacles will be used for. For general purpose outlets not located in the kitchen or bathrooms it is common to have 10 receptacle outlets on one circuit or two average sized bedrooms on one AFCI circuit



If you need more specific information please let me know where the outlets are being installed and what wire size you are planning to use.
