Why do we use AC current in our homes?

by

We can step up and step down AC so it can be use for both smaller and larger appliances.

Less power loss as compared to DC by increasing voltage and decreasing current.

AC is useful for induction motors.

AC is more safer as compared to DC.

Converting station cost of DC is very high.
Because  most  home  equipments  use  AC  power.
We used it for cooking rice,  For washing clothes and for lights in the house.
