24/7 Reliable Electricians
There are some appliances in a house that use 220V/240V for proper functioning. Some examples are washer, dryer, electric stoves, large cooking ranges, some air compressors, some power tools etc. 220V/240V provisions are available almost in all houses in Canada due to the same reason.
Having 220V/240V voltage reduces the amount of current and required power to operate the appliance to nearly half. Because the current that flows through the wires is now reduced, there is lesser heat in the wires and further less chances of overheating the electrical system of the house.
The electric shock risk – Yes, it is still there and is dangerous.
Many other components of the wiring system such as breaker etc. are planned accordingly.
We recommend to be constantly due-diligent about the 220V supply in your house. Some of the steps you can take are;
As far as human body is concerned, the situation will be pretty much same with 110V or 220/240V shock. The shock will hurt and can be fatal if heart received that shock. We don not recommend at all to work with your house wiring, no matter if it is 110V or 220V. If you are a qualified electrician, then sure it is a different situation.
