Re: Would it be okay to put 2 Ceiling Fans on one circuit???
I always recommend sticking to NEC requirements but think it is important to know why they are requirements and what exceptions there are. I find it interesting that NEC says the breaker must match the weakest component. If you run 12 ga to a J-box then run 14 ga out of the J-box you have to protect the circuit with a 15 amp breaker but you can use a 20 amp breaker and run 12 ga wire to a J-box and connect a light fixture with 18 ga wire.
