Re: working with 220 v

If you are looking for a "window" type of unit yes there are some 220 volt units on the market. Most are large like 18,000 btu or larger. Check Lowes, Home Depot or larger appliance retailers for availability. Also know when buying if you need a heat strip, or heat pump if indeed you want heat.

Is the Hunter portable AC High Effiency Model 31125 to be plugged into a 220 outlet only?

if the plate on the side says 220 volts then it will only work on 220 -250 volts outlet
at a 110 volts outlet it will fail and at anything more than 250 volts it will burn up

What do i have to do to plug my 110 air conditioner into where my 220 window unit

You need a step down transformer, to convert 220V to 110V. You can't just plug the 110V A/C unit in directly unless it is clearly marked as being suitable for multi-voltage supply (110V - 220V input).

Such a transformer has to be of sufficient capacity to handle the current, or wattage, that will be required. The Frigidaire unit in your question is a 3.5 kW cooling capacity, so the transformer would need to be about the same, ie for a 10A supply at least. They are quite big boxes, about $120.

You would put this in the roof or in a cupboard.

I believe I might need to change my (20 amp) breaker switch that is running on 10-2 wire which supplies power to my Rheem Classic 10 Seer. I'm not sure if I need to have 220V of power on a 30amp...

Hello, the unit runs on 220 volts that's why # 10 wire must be used. The best bet is to use a 40amp breaker for 220 volts, gives the circuit more protection.

It is a two ton system. and without doing a heat load Calculation and not knowing the heat load It would not be anything but a guess. But if everything is working properly and the system is clean and with good duct work, than it should be big enough for the size of your house.

I have 230V AC units and a 110V Condensate pumps can I hook up a power feed from anything inside or around the unit? A 110V wall socket mains feed is not close by.

Just return the condesation pump and get a 208/230 V one. Thats the only 100% correct way to do that. I know people in the field who have tapped off one leg of 230 v and run neutral to the casing and the unit will work but it isnt recommended. Your not supposed to run a current carrying conductor to the casing but its up to you. If this helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

What is the recommended circuit breaker for a 220 volt connection to a 6' baseboard heater

depends upon wattage of baseboard. I would guess about 20 -30 amps. Amps = Watts/Volts. Example, 1500 watts/220 volts = breaker size of 6.8 amps (add 25%) The only breaker available is a 15 amp breaker.

Not much my friend.

Are you in the USA or other place where 110/120 volt is the norm???

How in the world did a 110 V - 15 or 20 amp outet get put on a 220 volt circuit?????

Is this a rental property? If yes, I'd be calling the land lord and if I didnt get any satisfaction there, I'd be calling the city or the county or who ever oversees rentals and I'd be calling the news paper!

If this is your house - get yourself a volt/ohm meter and check all outlets in your house and garage and outside ... If you are not sure how to do this, it would be worth the investment to have a electrician inspect this house.

I'm sorry our machine if finished and I am very glad you are not hurt.

Thanks for your interest in

How many watts does an ARP-3012 draw?

Assuming you are in the United States....

This unit should work fine on a 15 amp circuit assuming there aren't several other loads on the same circuit.

You didn't say what the BTU was for you unit, but there are about 3.41 BTU's per watt. Multiply the btu rating of your unit by 3.41 and then divide by 115 or 120 (your house voltage in the U.S., use 220 for Europe) and that number is the amps.

It would be easier to change the 220 circuit in your house to a 110 by some creative work in the breaker panel and making it an air condtioner circuit only. You would need to check with an electrician, but would probably be worth it in the long run.
