House Wiring for Both 120 and 220 Volt Outlets in Africa

Question: I am building a house in Africa where the standard voltage is 220volts, and i want to wire the house with both 110/220volts outlets so that i can use 110/220volts appliances. In this regard I would be grateful if you could give me an idea of how to do the wiring.

This electrical question came from: Winfred, a Homeowner from Riverdale, Georgia

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Winfred
House Wiring in Africa
Winfred, my first thought is to install separate circuits for both types of appliances only because you should not modify the plug which came with the appliances that you will be using, therefore the appliance manufacturers would specify what the circuit and outlet receptacle configuration should be.  Staying within this specification would be best and would ensure that the installed circuit would maintain proper load balance of the conductors.
