Hello to all, long time reader first time poster.
These sections confuse me. On one hand 210.11 © (2) requires that you need a 20a branch circuit for the laundry, so you would think that it is for the washer and (gas) dryer. But in 210.52 (F) ex 1 states in an apt. or multi a family dwelling where laundry facilities are provided on premises and are available to all building occupants a laundry receptacle is not required. Where do you plug in the washer & dryer? So what is the branch circuit for, a convince outlet for the laundry room, or a circuit for the washer and dryer. I cant believe it can be both because if the washer and dryer are running at the same time you don’t have room for much else.
After posting I now realize that the exception is for the unit itself in the building. I guess you learn from just posting here. Its nice to look like an idiot on your first post.
