About two years ago I had a completely new feed put into my house, with a new 200 AMP panel installed, and an existing 100 AMP sub completely rewired. Most of my shop runs off that, save for my welder which has a dedicated going into the big 200 AMP panel. All new grounds, neutral bars, etc. They also pulled out a lot of old dead circuits. (House was built in the 50’s, and has had three additions.)

Don’t even remember the inspector mentioning anything about AFCI’s, although he failed it twice for other items the electricians I hired missed.
Overall, huge improvement and I don’t trip breakers anywhere, none of them even get warm. My heat pump breaker does get a just a hair warm if the aux heat comes on during a really cold night. Not an AFCI in my house. GF’s, yes.
