I saw this code also i was trying to see where it says kitchen because I’m doing a new kitchen and the wanted to be sure before inspection
Kitchens were added in the 2014 NEC
It says kitchens right after unit and before family.
Thank you sir
Now in NYC, if the edition of the NEC they are using is prior to 2014 then AFCl would not be required in Kitchen. I say this because NYC is usually a few cycles behind. Safer to just put it in if you don't know.
NYC is 2011 base in 2008 code with a few amendment,in 2008 code kitchen isn’t required to be AFCI,In Long Island we are in 2014, by the way Long Island is crazy every town, every village has their own license,about 18 all together
