220 Line; Do I need it?

Here is my situation: I have moved into a house that does not have a fridge in the kitchen, nor does it have a 220 Line. Here is my question; can I run a fridge off of a 110 line? If I can this will save me LOTS of money. By the way,Hi there my name is Angela and this is the first time I have ever posted a question. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

Only commercial refrigerators would require a 240V connection. All residential fridges will plug in to a standard 120V household receptacle. Good luck.

A fridge does not need 220, unless its some kind of big, industrial model (I guess those might be 220).

The 110 receptical should be fine for a standard fridge, It would be nice to have a dedicated circuit just for the fridge, but that is not usually absolutely necessary.
