Electrical Panel Location 1985


Recommended Posts

I inspected a townhome today that was built in 1985. The electrical panel was in the half bathroom on the first floor. I know they are not allowed in a bathroom now, but was this okay in 1985?

It might have been. The earliest prohibition on breakers in bathrooms was in the 1993 NEC. At least, if there was an earlier prohibition, I can't find it. I'm looking at 240.24(e)
