How are 240 volt electrical outlets installed?

  1. First, we must determine the desired location for the 240 volt electrical outlet then prep the area. Prepping the area includes moving all objects away from the installation location.
  2. Once we have determined where the outlet(s) will be installed, we will then turn off the power.
  3. Next, we will cut a hole in the drywall where the outlet will be placed.
  4. After the drywall is cut, we will drill holes into the studs to run the wiring to the breaker box (all outlets are installed where studs are in the walls).
  5. Then we will install the outlet box into the wall and pull the wiring through it.
  6. Once the outlet box is secured, we will attach the new wiring to the outlet receptacle and install it into the outlet box.
  7. Upon installation of the outlet receptacle, we will then go to the breaker box to connect the wire then test the outlet to ensure it is in proper working order.
