For all of the different types of electronics in the world, different volts of electricity is required. In North America, most electronics require only a certain amount of voltage, which can come from a standard, three-hole outlet. These three-hole outlets are commonplace in homes and businesses across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Three-hole outlets are referred to professionally by electricians as 120V outlets, in which the v stands for “volt.” Other electronics, like dishwashers and laundry machines, require more electricity than a standard outlet can provide. These outlets can vary in strength, but most often, stronger outlets that are commonplace in homes and businesses around the country are referred to as 208/220V outlets. These 208/220V outlets are often found in garages and kitchens where appliances that require this additional strength are usually found. RJS Electrical Contractors are experienced in installing, maintaining, and repairing both 120V and 208/220V outlets in New York City.
