will arc fault breakers often trip when using a vacuum cleaner?

last year

This is my experience, at least with a shop vac. We've learned not to plug the vacuum cleaner into receptacles on an arc fault circuit. This will be a problem if we ever bring our panel up to code with arc fault breakers on just about every circuit. Do others share this experience and how do you vacuum? (grin)
