Why do electric appliances require a different voltage for each?
It was very important to enhance the voltage to get more power with lesser losses. Best thing is to hire an educated electrician to install a 220/240 volt outlet. Usage of lower voltage may result in the melting of components or leading to malfunction of the appliances. On the other hand, higher voltage will cause appliances to run 'too fast and too high' leading to shorten their service life. Voltage above or below the normal levels causes damage to the electronic devices. Overloaded circuit warning signs: Flickering, blinking, or dimming lights. So be careful about the higher and lower voltages and keep safe your electronic devices.
