New house, can our electricity be too strong?
I understand paint and color, not electricity so please excuse my terms etc.
We moved into a new house end of June. We are the only house on the street. It seems that our current is too strong. The toaster had to go from the 5 setting to 2 here. The lightbulbs burn out faster than they should. The hairdryer does a super fast job of drying hair. The cable guy had to do something to the cable box because of our electricity.
We called the builder and he said that it might be a bit more powerful because we are the only house on the street but isn't 110 110 and 220 220??
Is this possible?
And if so is it hard on appliances etc? What would you do if this was your house?
