    Gas range load calculation

    Hello,

    Is there anywhere in NEC where you are require to put a certain load(kW) in load calculations for a range even though its gas?

    220.55 (2017) Speaks to ELECTRIC cooking appliances. I've never included a gas range in my calculations.

    The exception says you take the lowest between electric cooking and without electric cooking. I am clear on service size. Is there anywhere in NEC where it specifically says you need to add a certain kW for gas ranges(Perhaps in the future owner may switch to electric). I wasn't able to find it.

    220.84 says to add 8kw for each gas range to use the optional method.

    Have we established that this is a multi-family dwelling, since that's what 220.84 is all about?

    No, but that wasn't the question. The question was is there anywhere in the NEC that requires you to put a certain kw for gas ranges into load calcs.

    The answer is 220.84. It requires you to put in 8kw for gas ranges in it's load calc.
