My parents house was completed in 2014 and has AFCI receps nearly everywhere, anything with a universal motor has caused issues; blender, hand held (& stand) mixer, coffee grinder, hairdryer, vacuum, almost every tool and sometimes even the toaster. A real PITA if you ask me!

Whom ever wired my house should be beaten with a rubber hose, I had half voltage in the downstairs bath and it turned out to be a bad exterior recep. Lost power to every recep on the screened in porch and found a buried GFCI where everything else but the lights was downstream, another huge PITA!
