In the United States, most power outlets are set up to provide 110 volts of electricity. While this is suitable for most applications, devices that require a large amount of electricity, such as dryers and air conditioning units, are often hooked up to a 220 volt outlet. There are several advantages to using a 220v circuit over a 110v circuit, but the conversion process can be complicated and dangerous. Professional help is recommended for installation.

How do 220v circuits compare with traditional circuits?
The difference between 220v circuits and traditional, 110v circuits is in the amount of electrical power the circuit can sustain. In the most basic form of understanding, as voltage increases, less electrical current is required to create the same amount of power. Thus, a 220v circuit requires half as much electrical current to power the same device as a 110v circuit.
Though they are not very different in scientific terms, 220v circuits are much different in practical terms. They require different plugs, outlets, breakers, resistors, and other components to create and utilize. In the United States, 220v plugs look much larger than 110v plugs, and they will not fit correctly into standard outlets. This is intentional, as plugging a device into an incorrect outlet can destroy its circuitry.
What are the benefits of these systems?
There are several benefits to using 220v circuits over 110v. First off, less heat will be produced by the system as a whole. Since less current needs to flow through the wires to reach the device, there is less resistance, meaning less power is lost as heat. This is particularly important for large devices, especially air conditioners. Since they use a comparatively huge amount of electricity, producing too much heat would slow the rate the unit can actually cool down a space.
Secondly, as less resistance is required, the wires required are much thinner, helping to reduce costs. This may not sound important, but a majority of 220v devices contain a very high amount of wires. Lastly, 220v circuits are slightly more efficient than 110v. This will allow devices hooked up to them to power up a little more quickly and smoothly.
Why hire a professional?
After considering all this, you might be thinking of putting some 220v equipment in your home. We do not recommend you do this by yourself. Installing electrical wiring can be extremely dangerous for an amateur, possibly even fatal. That aside, it is an extremely complicated process. Incorrect installation can lead to electrical shorts, house fires, and, of course, wasted money for the parts.
A professional installation team will not only install the 220v system in your home, but also devices that go with it. Our team will install air conditioning units and the wiring needed to support them at the same time, saving time and money. Contact Superior Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical, Inc. by phone or in person for more information.
