    Hi there

    We are building a new home where only single phase power is avaliable,we have been told that the air/con is of a size where 3 phase would be the best option.What can be done in regards to maximising our power output from a single phase line.
    As with most people building a new home we also have a budget and are looking at the most viable option.
    Hope someone can help.

    You need to talk to your electricity supplier but if the air condition allows for a 3-phase system to be install go on with it. 3-phase power is cheaper than single phase.
