No. You will still have 110V, by the way I see it. You need two phases 180 degrees ou of phase, which is impossible to get.Hay, i have a question about getting 220v from a 110v line.
I have 110v come in on one phase. Can I use a thing that needs 220v by connecting two phase wires to it? 110+110=220
I don't want to contradict you but where this happens? In my country, as well as in whole Europe, we have 230V (formerly 220V) and have a phase and a neutral, not two phases 180 degrees out of phase. And in triphase systems we have three phases 120 degrees out of phase. Never seen two phases 180 degrees out of phase. The closest thing I saw was biphase systems 90 degrees out of phase.Yes, that's why 220 breakers catch both hot phases in the breaker box.
Correct. What you have is a single phase at 220 V with a center tap which is the grounded neutral so you have 220 V between bot ends which are both "live".Since Arthur92710 lives in the US of A, his house runs on "split phase."

In most breaker boxes, the two busses "take turns" going down each row of breakers. The top left breaker, for example, will be on the "black" phase, and the second breaker will be on the "red" phase.
Any hardware store will carry ganged two-pole breakers for 240Vac operation. Be sure you know who manufactured your panel, as each maker has a different physical configuration for their breakers.
Split phase? But both phases must have to be 180º out of phase right?Since Arthur92710 lives in the US of A, his house runs on "split phase." It works like this: http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_2/chpt_10/1.html
