    Optional calculations

    when doing the optional calculations for a residence, would tesla charging receptacles, kilns, hot tub motors and heaters,electric patio heaters, and pool pump motors fall into the same area as my hot water heater , dishwasher, and dryer?

    What are you getting at. Do you mean do they get the same demand factor as the others. I would say yes except for the patio heater.
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

      Trying to decide if they fall into the heating and ac section of optional calculation or if they can be put into the add all the nameplate category. I imagine they belong in the heating category, just running thru my head about lumping them into the other area.

        Why would a charging unit be linked with the a/c or heating? Imo, it gets the demand at the end just like the other appliance then you add the heat/ac

          My opinion, based on current code language:

          tesla charging receptacles
          No

          kilns
          Maybe

          hot tub motors
          No

          and heaters,
          Yes


          electric patio heaters
          Definitely yes.

          , and pool pump motors
          No.

          As for whether the code should be updated, and whether you should account for those loads to cover yourself, those are different questions.
