Is there a difference between 115v and 120v?

Voltage Differences: 110V, 115V, 120V, 220V, 230V, 240V. You'll often hear voltages in your home referred to as 110V, 115V, or 120V. This can be confusing but the bottom line is they are referring to the exact same thing. 120V is the AC voltage on a single hot wire in your home with respect to neutral (or ground).

Similarly, it is asked, what does 115 volts mean?

In most homes, the standard household voltage is 120 volts. The power company supplies two, 120-volt cables, or legs, of electrical current to your home. Wires going to standard receptacles in your walls are 120 volts and are suitable for 110-volt or 115-volt air conditioners.

What is the difference between 115 volts and 120 volts?

Appliances labeled for 110, 115 or 120 volt can be used in the same outlets. In fact, some appliances are actually designed to work best with 110 volts because this voltage is often found in outlets labeled 120 or 115 volt.
