Switch from gas cooking to 3-phase electric cooking
See how many phases flow into your home
The energy meter always shows how many phases of electricity your house enters. These can be 1 phase or 3 phases. Look at the electricity meter in your meter cupboard. How many phases of electricity does your home provide?
- 1 phase: there is 220 / 230V on your electricity meter.
- 3 phases: there is 3x220 / 230V or 380 / 400V on your electricity meter.
Are you stuck? Then contact your network operator and ask how many phases they supply to your home.
Step-by-step plan 1 phase
To make your home with 1-phase connection suitable for a very powerful 3-phase cooker, please contact your network manager. They can tell you whether it is possible to supply 3 phases of electricity instead of 1 phase and what the costs are. As soon as you receive 3 phases, call an electrician. He can build a power group in your meter cupboard and extend the wiring to your kitchen. After this, your home is suitable for a 3-phase cooker.
Step-by-step plan 3 phases
Is there 3x220 / 230V or 380 / 400V on your electricity meter? Then your grid operator supplies enough electricity for a 3-phase hob. Now it is a matter of contacting an electrician to make your meter cupboard and kitchen suitable. He places a power group in your meter cupboard against payment and transfers the required wiring to your kitchen. Once all this has happened, your home is suitable for a powerful hot plate that works with 3-phase power.
