An electric cooker installation is a great new addition to any home. It is more efficient than some gas cookers, it allows you to easily adjust the settings when cooking, and it can reduce overall costs in the home when considering your utility expenses. Further, many homes don’t have access to gas in the kitchen, which makes the installation of a new electric cooker the only option in these homes unless they are able to run a new gas pipe. Electric cookers are easier to maintain and clean which is another great benefit. When preparing to install your new electric cooker it is important to choose the right professionals for the job. Consider weighing up your options before choosing the cooker and the installation professional you want to hire.
When installing an electric cooker, of course, you have to factor in the price of your new cooker. These can run anywhere from £150 to £1000 or more depending on brand, size, and features. In addition to the cost of your cooker, you also have to consider installation costs. Labour costs for installation can run between £50 to £250, depending on whether or not there is wiring work to perform, adding new electric lines or updating old wiring.
This is an extremely important factor that you can’t take lightly. You don’t want to hire the first tradesperson you find, simply because they gave you the lowest quote. You need to make sure you do your research to check they are qualified and can complete the job properly for you. A true professional will not only provide you a full written and detailed quote they will inform you of possible setbacks or additional costs so you know what to expect throughout the installation process. When getting a trade to complete a job in your home I would recommend getting at least 3 quotes so you can compare and pick the best tradesmen. Upon completion, you should also request all documentation stating the work was done to standards.
