I have family returning from the US and they insist on bringing their appliances with them. They want me to find out about installing one 110VAC outlet in each room of their house. The standard outlet in USA is usually rated at 20A, which equates to about 2200VA (depending on final voltage). This can get expensive very quickly, but that's for them decide on. I can't see any of the appliances requiring such a large current though.
What I'm asking is the following:
- What is the legal requirements regarding such an conversion/installation?
- What will be the effect of our 50Hz supply on inductive loads such as a refrigerator?
- Does anybody have any experience, or know about a contractor, with such an installation/conversion (the house will be in Mosselbay)?
