In the United States and Canada, the power grid is a split-phase system that supplies power to your house at a high voltage. That voltage is divided in half before it’s routed throughout your home. Most people know about and use 110, 115, 120, or 125 volts interchangeably to describe the power that comes out of a standard wall socket. Similarly, 220, 230, 240, and 250 volts are used to describe the higher voltage range that is used to supply power to larger appliances. But what are there all these different terms, and how should they be used?
If you’re worried about getting the right voltage for your appliances, you don’t have to. Electrical equipment can accept variations of 10 percent, but the utility company will only vary by 5 percent in the voltage they deliver. You’ll find that the levels match up fairly well.
