Question I need help

Hello, I am new to this forum. My question is I am going to buy a welder and it requires 115v, it just plugs into a regular outlet , is your home outlets 110v, how would you go about getting 5 more volts, or are they more than 110v.

The terms 110 volts, 115 volts, and 120 volts are used interchangeably. Your machine would work on 110, 115, or 120.

Many years ago, the common voltage was 110. Then it tended to be a little higher at 115. Today, in most areas of the country, the voltage supplied to your home will be 120. Your particular manufacturer chose to use the term "115" as their spec. They could just as easily have said 110 or 120. The machine will work properly on any of the 3 numbers.
