Thursday, November 28, 2019
The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires at 210.52(F) a minimum of one receptacle outlet at an area designated for laundry equipment, and it was first included in the 1971 edition of the code. To learn more about the details of this requirement, go to our blog post Is a laundry area for a washing machine required by code for a single family residence?
