Single or double pole?
Funny thing about small projects in my 66 year old house.....they never stay small very long. Anyway, in my dining room area, sandwiched between two peices of glued together paneling, I located an outlet. the outlet itself is a 220.... after further exporation into the wall, it seems like that powered an air conditioning unit that was once in the wall (found a framed up and covered up location near the outlet void of insulation) I traced the wire in the attic, and it went to straight down into my panel in the laundry room. So, my question is, does 220 require a double pole breaker, or can it potentially run off of a single pole? I am trying to determine the voltage becuase nothing regarding my electric was ever labeled, and I have only been moderatly sucessful in my personal attempts.
