Determining 208 Volt or 240 Volt Electrical Service

Core Issue:

  • How to determine if the supplied electrical service is 208 Volt or 240 Volt?
  • 208V or 240V power supplied to the outlet


Wolf has no way to determine what the supplied electrical service is.

  • Typically, residential homes have 240 V service, and commercial and high-rise buildings have 208 V service.
  • This varies greatly depending on local codes, electrical requirements, and the age of the building.
  • Contact a local certified electrician to properly determine the voltage of the electrical service.
  • For information on how to boost voltage, refer to Boost 208 Volt Power for Domestic Use.

Refer to the product installation guide for further installation information and electrical requirements.
