Switch from a gas stove to an electric stove
Check how much electricity your home provides
The electricity meter shows whether there is 1-phase or 3-phase electricity entering your home. View 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.
Do not you come out yourself? Then contact your network operator and ask how many phases they supply to your home.
Step-by-step plan 1 phase
If there is 220 / 230V on your electricity meter, you have 1 phase. To make your meter box suitable, please contact your network manager. They tell you whether it is possible to supply 3-phase power instead of 1-phase and what the costs are. If you receive 3 phases, you can contact an electrician for the installation of a power group and the necessary wiring to your kitchen. After this, your home is suitable for an electric stove.
Step-by-step plan 3 phases
If 3x220 / 230V or 380 / 400V is on your energy meter, you have 3 phases. This means that your connection provides enough energy for an electric stove. You now only need a power group in your meter cupboard and a Perilex outlet in your kitchen. Contact an electrician to place a power group and to pull the wiring through to your kitchen. After this your connection is suitable.
