When it comes to repairing or changing your electrical systems and appliances, you may think you can handle small fixes on your own, but you’re better off leaving it to the professionals. When it comes to French electronics, things are done differently than in other parts of Europe and the world, so you’re better off finding an electrician to help depannage electrique champigny sur marne.
These are some of the things that France does differently than elsewhere.
In places like England, plugs have three pins, while in France, they have two. There are also two different types available, one smaller, and one bulkier. If you don’t know which sockets go to which appliances, you’ll end up damaging either your items or your electrical system.
In other places of Europe, there are typically three different wires that get attached to different parts of plugs, coded by color. However, in France, there aren’t always three wires sometimes just two and the color coding system doesn’t match up the same as it does elsewhere.
Different supply levels
Electricity is parceled out in different supply levels, so many older properties may have much lower levels than needed to accommodate modern usage. If every time you plug in a hair dryer it turns off the lights in the kitchen, your system needs an upgrade for proper use.
In some parts of the world, electricity is wired in a loop system. However, in France, the electrical pattern is point-to-point, with different output coming from a central center of distribution. For large appliances like washing machines and dishwashers, individual outputs must be created so that they can properly function.
In other parts of Europe, the homeowner doesn’t need to worry about the system having an “earth” that grounds it. However, in France, it is up to the property owner to make sure this is in place.
