I live in an apartment that has just one wall unit A/C which has a regular 15amp ground plug that plugs into a regular 110 volt outlet. The problem is that whenever it gets to be over 100 degrees the circuit breaker pops if I have both the A/C and my tv on, which is powered by on the same outlet. However, near the A/C is an old 230 volt 15 amp dedicated outlet, which was probably for an older A/C some time ago. I would like to use the old dedicated outlet to prevent this. Are there reasonably priced converters to plug the A/C into the dedicated 230v 15a outlet? Does this seem like a realistic solution?
