How Much To Install A Gas Cooker?
Gas cooker is gradually becoming more and more popular in the UK, with several homeowners looking to have one installed in their various homes. Whether you’re planning remodelling, conversions or perhaps you own a new building, gas ( be it a natural gas or Liquid Petroleum Gas - LPG) is now the favourite mode of cooking ,heating as well as warming across the country.
The fact that it’s popular, however, is not an excuse to install a gas cooker by all means in order to reduce the cost. When it comes to gas cooker installation, adequate care must be taken to ensure costly errors which can lead to fire outbreaks and other dangers are avoided. Therefore, if you’re thinking about getting a gas cooker installed in your home, hiring a qualified gas cooker installation company would be your best bet.
Prior to the installation of your gas cooker, the gas plumber will confirm whether or not your home is connected to the mains gas supply. In the absence of a connection, you’ll have to request for a new service connection. Immediately the connection is available, the certified gas cooker installation company can then proceed to fit in the appliance.
However, for a free standing gas cooker, the measurement of the gas cooker’s dimension will be taken by the fitter as well as the available space for the installation in order to determine whether or not the gas cooker will fit in. After this, the next step would be to turn the gas cooker on its side and fit in the underpins. The gas pipe will then be connected to the manifold while also activating the gas and checking for possible leakages. Once done, the gas would be plugged into the outlet and a test will be conducted on the gas to ensure it’s running the way it should.
