How do I Split a 220 circuit into 2 - 110's ?

Re: Wiring

Actually it is already. We get 220v by adding two 110v lines together (of different phases)

What are you trying to accomplish?

It would depend on whether or not the line you are talking about includes a neutral.

Actually --- like Jack said --- depends if there is a *neutral* included.

Re: Wiring

to futher your point(s) - if there are 2 neutrals included...

Still need to know where he is headed with this one.

Only one neutral would be required to make a MWBC.

2 neutrals ???
Why would there be 2 neutrals for a 220/240 volt circuit?

Re: Wiring

2 neutrals if you wanted to make two 110 circuits

Re: Wiring

Houston i dont understand the two neutrals, one would make 2 circuits. its 240 so it is seperate phases, it is just like a 12/3, two hots and one neutral?

Re: Wiring

Providing there is one neutral and 2 hot legs --- there will be 1-220/240 volt circuit and/or 2- 110/120 volt circuits.

Two neutrals are not required.
