220 uses half the amps, and puts more beef in the recovery time of the heating elements. If you want to run the circuit, I'd go for 220. Either way, you will need a dedicated line to serve up full power to the element.
Like a db30 which is 110v, is not in the same league as an Econred 2 at 220.
We even have equip at 480. Now thats real electric
All good points on the voltage...the answer that I see is what is your expected volume of production. In a small retail store or low prodution environment a 110 machine is fine and less money. If you are in a manufacturing environment you will need a 220 machine, which allows the head to stay at up to temp when you are pressing alot of garments. Otherwise the temp falls too quickly and the heat may not be sufficient to bond the transfer.
