The installation is similar to that of a 120V outlet. The part you have to be careful with is getting the correct size wire and breaker.
240V is installed using 3 conductor wire (Black, Red, White). The Black and Red hooks to a double-pole circuit breaker. The white and grounding the same as a 120V system.
You actually don't need a 3 wire cable for a 240 volt outlet. The neutral more than likely will not be used and a three wire cable over a two wire cable adds extra costs to the overall job total. If you can afford it however, it is a good idea as then the outlet can be used as a split voltage outlet, and the wiring is pre installed.
There will be 2 wires for installing a 240 VAC outlet. One red and one black.
120 Volts (roughly) in the US.
Every single electrical outlet in your house is in parallel with every other outlet in your house. All of yours are also in parallel with every outlet in every neighbor's house that shares the same pole transformer with your house.,
You would have to install a 230 volt outlet.
Of course it is physically possible. However, I strongly suggest you check with a qualified electrician who knows the particular electrical and building codes for your area as they can vary. Done incorrectly, you run the possibility of electrocuting yourself or someone else who uses that outlet, or setting your house on fire.

If your air/con uses standard domestic elec. supply it will have a standard plug on it, OK to plug in. These units are usually for windows. If it is the type with fan and compressor outside and air inducted into house it will be 3 phase supply and must be connected by an electrician or qualified fitter.
Every electrical outlet in your house is in parallel with every other outlet in the house.Every AC electrical device in the house ... lights, appliances, computers, clocks, radios ...are all powered and operate in parallel.In fact, all AC electrical devices in all of the houses powered from a single pole transformerare in parallel. The toaster and the microwave oven in your kitchen most likely operate inparallel with your neighbor's sump pump and hair dryer.
first disconnect all electrical supply to pump and then detach the pipe or pipefittings joined with pump's outlet and inlet.
plug a block heater plug into any household 120 electrical outlet just like plugging in a heater in your house
Probably an electrical outlet near the door of their house closest to driveway or car port.
Every device in your house that plugs into a standard outlet and also the various lights in use in a typical residence.
The green ground wire should be attached directly to the junction box. That is the metal housing where the house wires enter the outlet.
Every outlet in your house, and everything in your house that's plugged into an outlet, is in parallel.
Every single light socket and electrical outlet in your house is in parallel with all the others, and also with every single electrical outlet and light socket in all the homes of all your neighbors who share the same utility transformer with you. All of the utility transformers in your neighborhood are in parallel with each other out of the same electrical substation, and all of the substations on your side of town are in parallel out of the power generating station.
A little more detail about the sitsuation would help. New construction, remodel, sewer outlet in the house to street or sewer outlet in house to main going out of house.
Every electrical device in the house is in parallel with every other one. No two devices that both plug into a wall outlet are in series.
If you have an electrical outlet not working and you have an idea what you are doing, you set out to repair it. First, you check the circuit breaker for a thrown circuit breaker. If that is not the case, you get a volt meter. When you have a volt meter, you throw the circuit breaker to that outlet. Then you take a screwdriver and you remove the outlet but keep the wires attached. You make sure the wires are not touching anything. You go back to the circuit breaker panel. You turn on the electricity. Then you test the wires with your voltmeter. If it shows they have electricity, you know the problem is the outlet. If not, you have a different problem. You go back to the panel and turn off the circuit breaker. You put the outlet back in. If the problem was the outlet you buy a new outlet. In the United States, a number of hardware and electrical supply stores sell them. You go back. You turn off the circuit breaker. You remove the outlet from the wall. You notice where the wires are. The new outlet also comes with an explanation of how to attach the wires. You attach them and put the outlet back in the wall. If the problem was not the outlet, you call an electrician. While an electrician will cost money, a burned down house will cost more money.
The National Electrical Code is the recognised standard to which all electrical wiring and installations must adhere to. It is a requirement of selling a house that all wiring and equipment must feature this code to prove it has been correctly fitted.
When something is hard wired, it is wired directly to the house wire. No cord. You just install the smoke detector like you would a light fixture or an outlet.
Get some electrons... You have to be more specific in your question... Do you mean: 1. You have no electrical power in your house? -> Call electric company 2. One outlet is not working -> Call electrician

Standard House was created in 1855.
Depending on the style of your house and the model purchased, a pa system can be pretty tricky to install in the home. Most often, these systems require a "hardwire" or direct wire into your electrical system.
Get a 120 volt ac to 12volt dc power supply. you plug them into a house outlet and it converts120 house voltage to 12 volt dc , some have regulators on them and you can turn the dc voltage up and down on them. make sure you set your device to the proper voltage before turning on.
