Tapping into 220V line
I would like to plug in a light (not sure what type yet), but the only outlet nearby is a 220V outlet for our Air Conditioner. I'm curious to know what my options are. We don't want to run a long extension cord over to the other outlet.
Is there a way to tap into the line to make a 110V outlet, like maybe tap into the black and green wire using pigtails?
Maybe tap into it with another 220V outlet, and just plug in a light that can handle 220V?
Any other option I haven't considered?
